everybody loves somebody says one song, and what becomes of the broken hearted asks another.
one of the latter made this music compilation as the flight went down.

This cyber-hip-hop country-break-up song was downloaded into the Blue Heart Saloon on 21 April 2005.
vocal synthesizing by Agnes X Panther
You’ve been tested in the market for decades,
Your effects on hearts is well known.
And somehow your medicine stays legal,
Though the victims are scraped to the bone.
In the interests of those buying your medicine,
I think they oughta put a warning label on you.
Data spoke of internal combustions,
People’s insides spilled out on the floor.
Reports of heart damage irreversible,
And effects on tear-ducts by the score.
When it’s working the effects are addicting,
A state of euphoria is guaranteed.
But when withdrawal rounds the inevitable corner,
It’s like a rug pulled from under your feet.
I signed myself in for rehabilitation
‘Cause like a monkey you crawled on my back
They say there are signs of recovery
And writing songs will keep me on track
