"Rock in a post-Beefheart vs. 90s Aerosmith way, heart surprisingly always on sleeve. Crossing the Rubicon -- it's better when it isn't safe, when there's a chance of being caught. But, life is free and easy beyond the wall, in the Neon City, so why risk it? Why defy the panoptic eye? Don't heed the call of the exotic/erotic drums. Ignore the riffs. Don't stop to wonder how they float above, below, between the beat - simultaneously. Then comes the refrain. Don't mind it -- it's the anthem of the Other. There's no context for this, at least not on your side. No, stay there. Choose style, and a clearly demarcated one at that, over substance. Those fluorescent glasses won't do much good on our side. True freedom of expression can only be experienced by breaking barriers. You thought the wall came down years ago? Perhaps it did, but we put it back up. For you. Yet, despite all warnings, you will slip through. You'll find a way to the forbidden zone. We built it, so you'd come. Things got too easy without barbed wire and watchtowers. Without checkpoints and tunnels, it all felt too safe. There's no exhilaration without danger. There's Torrid Sex In East Berlin."
