the Trail of Tears

I chose this title because it expressed my state of consciousness fully. In the words of Immortal Technique "Imagine if the women you're suppose to love for the rest of your life. I set to marry someone else at the end of the night" I didn't have to imagine any of that. Those who have listened since Blisters and a Chainsaw have grown with that relationship
