Help us bring folk punk to the masses. Specifically the east coast. We are organising the biggest folk punk festival ever seen on the east coast and we need your help to spread the word and bring in bands. So reblog, like the page, share the page, tell your friends, tell your enemies, call your parents, tell them too. The show will be held in Richmond, VA in September.

I wish It was in the midwest :-(

I feel like a leech to everyone around me unsure and false promises I make.
I invade your existence with my dependence
and leave you guilt tripped until you take
care of me, for If not I will surely die.
I don’t feed or clean myself and I am always high,
putting pipe dreams before the necessities in life.
Without your help I have no hope to survive.
Now I know that sounds pathetic, that’s because that’s what I am.
So open about my flaws but it’s all part of my plan.
For If I can recognize my flaws you’ll assume I’m trying to change,
but I am lazy and disheartened and I know I will remain the same.
Taking all you can give me trying to live in excess.
You know you’ll make my life much easier, I’ll make your life a mess.
Squirm away stupid leech boy go and die now in the drain,
you speak only of your sadness but are yet to feel true pain.
