Do you really need some kind of illusion?
Fuck, I feel the need to create some body art in form of some bloody noses...at least. "Burn, Giant, Burn" (a nice Testphasen negativ CD title, btw)
I wish, people would get together and stand up against this capitalistic fuckers. But instead they say "Thank you for raping me and stealing my music and rights", because that's what really happens to you, dear friends.

"Top executives at Spotify make millions while artists endeavor just to earn pennies.
At well over 60 million, Spotify has the highest number of paid subscriptions. Ahead of its Wall Street offering, the company’s valuation has skyrocketed to $19 billion. Top executives at Spotify reportedly earn seven-figure salaries.
