Riff: Poliça – “Torre”

Oct 22, 2013

Spades and blackjack/Basketball/Letters to prison, no one to call/Eleven pit bulls at your door/You can’t have me anymore

from Torre lyrics by Polica

With all this emotional purging going on it’s astonishing that anything got done or that the budget wasn’t blown on an inordinate amount of tissue. Yet here Poliça manages to paint a sincere portrait – one that reveals enough to suggest that Channy’s either dating Tony Montana or DMX.
