Essentially a 2 part song. The first half is meditating on various descriptions of modern culture that all add up to something both attractive to the existentially weary youth and cancerous to the already initiated. Much like drugs. The second half becomes a bit more centered on telling a story of a product of this culture who gets wooed by a "Guru" who promises all the answers to life's big questions, says all the right things but leaves out some necessary, actual truths. Such as at the end of this faux-shamanistic journey he's taking them on is death, a death that he was not prepared for or expecting, and his last minute fears are swayed by the unyielding faith of the other followers. Making this quite a tragic tale indeed.

Waste culture, Taste culture
Too small in the waist culture
Race culture, Trace culture
A clinging to the dead vulture
Gun culture, Fun culture
Win them over if they're won culture
Here culture, Loud culture
Nature over nurture culture
We all love to belong
But what if we're doing it all wrong?
The "Be me or be square" song
Kid, don't you want to get along?
You sold your books, you bought their tapes
You yearn to make the right mistakes
Beyond resurfacing Detour Lake
You see your Guru's been on the take
It's not a wound it's just a chafe
The cry of the wolf's the mark XX X XXXXX
