The Old Soul in the Sonic Youth
I believe in the mighty and the heavens and the hells and the symbols and the rights and the wrongs of many a religion. I believe, along with Bernstein, that music is the universal language most deeply rooted in Earth, and that the poetry of Earth is never dead, as long as spring succeeds winter and man is there to perceive it. I believe in equality and justice, as well as truth and clarity. I believe in love and life, as well as art and beauty. Finally, I believe that passion is always at the center.

I believe in helping to preserve what is left of such ideas I know to be living.
