car crash mention? 

(ok so after checking the comments on genius (of course) and rereading the lyrics, it's probably not actually about driving in traffic, but about a crash

reflecting back on when i could speak, phonology 

it was always really weird to me how in Hebrew Mode my speech parts could combine any set of consonants together every which way, but then whenever i'd go Fake American, i'd be limited to what english allows + maybe a couple extra consonant clusters for *some* names

computers are garbage and apple is even more garbage
