Hello, welcome to Rock and/or Roll.
This one I'm calling "The Episode."
And on this episode every song
Starts with "The" then it's one word long
The Trooper sounds the show begins
But on this episode no one wins
The sound of Built to Spill and Chicken Shack
Like Maiden said, "There's no turning back."
