This was unanimously the absolute favorite. The text says, "Do not get drunk on wine for this leads to dabacery [sic] / Wars are a punishment from God for sins / I'm afraid of what the scientists carry with them (knowledge) / Those who will not remember their history lessons are doomed to repeat them / And now I have become death." From the misspellings to the misquotings, I'm not sure which part is my favorite.

Liang and Michael.
