Riff: Poliça – “Chain My Name”

Oct 22, 2013

Heard my name and it changed that day/So are we made just to fight/All our lives/End it all the bottom, dotted line

from Chain My Name lyrics by Poliça

Face it, love is the most horrible thing that can happen to a person. At least for someone like Channy Leaneagh who compares it to a never-ending melee between emotions. She’s taking the ball and chain metaphor to new heights, but it’s personal enough to allow a certain level of authenticity to resonate.
