Why should I pay for a panflute, if I don't want a panflute?

If you can afford to buy a bank, you can afford to buy a synth. I give my bank a small fortune every month, I don't see why they should be cheap. As for s**t, well, you buy what you like. I tend to get rid of mine.

Well, if you saved your allowance instead of spending it on crystal meth & hoodies, then one day you might be able to afford one of these 'expensive as f**k workstations' with as many 'banks and s**t' as you like.

Banks and s**t? Well, the best thing to do with banks is to take a dump. Then you can spread your c**p around, share it with everyone.

Seriously vowels what are you actually asking?
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

Maybe start an "Occupy Roland" movement for the Synth-deprived 1%.
