    Written and performed by the guy who got fired by Roger Waters :roll:
    All the world will be your enemy, Prince with a thousand enemies, and whenever they catch you, they will kill you. But first they must catch you, digger, listener, runner, prince with the swift warning. Be cunning and full of tricks and your people shall never be destroyed.

    Journey? Really?

    Yes Journey, their a classic band to me, you have a problem with that?
    To each is own, but I think they're terrible. Absolute cheese with absolutely no substance. The Nickelback of the 70s/80s. Not trying to pick a fight, just surprised to see them on the list.

    You're right, they're a joke and not classic artists in the slightest. They're guitar player tried to kick Santana out of Santana for cryin out loud. I'm not sayin I don't have any Journey on my ipod, but they're 100% in the guilty pleasure category.... Don't Stop Believin got too much buzz from being used in the Sopranoes finale.

    "Judge yourself if you feel the need
    Just let me known to be
    In search of the truth myself
    There is a drop of blood on the ground
    And it seems to me that it's not my kind
    And I can't be sure if its yours or mine."
