If they weren’t really raw, down on the Senate floor
We’d be like aawwwh! They ain’t hardcore!

(And we are.)

To the twenty-five who voted “no” to ending the debate, Your Montag comends your decision, though the world may never realize the depth of the courage your actions would have required had the effort been successful.
