2018 so far



 I closed my lids, and kept them close,
 And the balls like pulses beat; 250
 For the sky and the sea, and the sea and the sky,
 Lay like a load on my weary eye,
 And the dead were at my feet.

The Silence by Winchester Orchestra





Why do I deserve the science to feel better about you? At a loss I lost my cool I denied that I found you I tried to be a basket case I did not surprise you I'm trying to find a signal fire Let me know when I should move But you, amplified in the silence Justified in the way you make me bruise Magnified in the science Anatomically proved that you don't need me Why do I desire the space? I was mourning after you I was lost and lost my shape There was nothing I could do I don't want to waste away It was all I gave to you Take me back and take my place I will rise right up for you But you, amplified in the silence Justified in the way you make me bruise Magnified in the science Anatomically proved that you don't need me All the while you waste away, you're asking "Did I really need another one to take me down?" Everybody knows it's something that you had to live with darling Nobody's gonna tear you down now There is nothing you keep, there is only your reflection There was nothing but quiet retractions And families pleading, "Don't look in that cabinet, there's far more bad than there's good, I don't know how it got there" That was something your father had burned in me Twenty hours out of Homestake eternity You can go anywhere but you are where you came from Little girl you are cursed by my ancestry There is nothing but darkness and agony I can not only see, but you stopped me from blinking Let me watch you as close as a memory Let me hold you above all the misery Let me open my eyes and be glad that I got here
