Defensible Lyrics 2

12 Jan 2016

This is the long-time-coming-but-not-necessarily-long-awaited second entry in my “Defensible Lyrics” series of blog posts, wherein I cite lyrics that I find to be — you guessed it — defensible.

The first post can be found here.

The lyrics included in this particular post are all thematically linked by the fact that they’re suppositional claims. While casually looking through my mind for defensible lyrics a couple of months ago, it dawned on me that, really, any suppositional claim could be defensible because the speaker isn’t really taking up a position or saying anything of substance — like “journalism.”

With that in mind, I give you: Defensible Lyrics 2.
