Types of Edge Kids:
1) The one who knows straight edge is a personal lifestyle and keeps his beliefs to himself
2) Pseudo edge kid, who puts x's on his hands at every show, goes vegan, and sells out the following month
3) Hardline kid - tries to force edge on others, just a meathead who has no idea of the positive nature straight edge is supposed to be
Chain of Strength
because you used to be so strong but time has changed you.
You turned away.
I keep trying to escape from the past.
But those days used to mean so much.
We stood side by side and nothing else mattered.
We were straight edge and at least I still am."
Excerpt from "The Decline" by Champion
3)no promiscuous sex
4) Yes, we do have fun
Times as they are, there are now three kinds of sXe'rs.
1. Those who understand what it means. People who value clarity and wish to avoid altered states of perception, poisoning the body, or unsettling the mind. No drugs, some even avoid medicinal drugs as these can alter state of mind. No drinking to excess, as this can alter the mind and poison the body. No promiscuous sex, you got me on this one. These people are, 99% of the time, decent people who see their choices for what they are, choices, nothing more, nothing less.
2. Insecure gits. People who wish to place themselves on a self appointedly superior moral platform, then proceed to brag about how much better they are than everyone else. No drugs. No drink. No Promiscuous sex. No meat. No/very few friends, as few other than those who share their views can stand to be around them for more than ten minutes without driving a lit candle, wick first, into their eye, and injecting them with lighter fluid through the ear.
3. Hardliners. All the stupidity of number two, with knuckledusters. No drugs. No drink. No promiscuous sex. No meat 9 times out of ten. All the clarity with none of the intelligence.
2. Stop poisoning my air you arrogant ignorant smokers!
