Riff: Poliça – “Vegas”

Oct 22, 2013

Skull bikini for your frilly ass/Hope it’s love, hope it lasts/Oooooh, you’ve been mean to me/Whether or not you think its true/It’s good to know that I got my eyes on/You ooooooh been mean to me

from Vegas lyrics by Poliça

The best way to quell the post breakup blues is to get wasted and do something ridiculous like going to Vegas and blacking out for three days straight. It’s a proactive way of stymieing the little baby in you that wants to curl in a ball and die. Channy replaces the pain with fun and bitter farewells.
