about

A sick society only creates sick people…
The world is condamned to a slow and painful decay, but still, it will urge you to be one with it, to be ”something special”, to wonder ”how wonderful your future will be”. But, for some people, for some of us, life isn’t that simple, it can be harsh and unfair, it doesn’t always work that way.

Some of us get anxious with that overthinking pattern and we don’t want to face it alone, we don’t want to die and be alone. Like a knife in the scars of the past, anxiety hurts you, traps you and leads you to dark regions of your mind you never thought existed, you even lose control of your body. You need help, you know you need help.
Unsteady loneliness forces you to adapt, do the best you can, take one small step ahead, until you make a few and accept that ”life is short” and that you ”need to make the most it”. But your self-esteem is awfully broken, like billions of cervical wires crushed under the pressure of being normal, of being stable, of putting a mask on you don’t want anymore.

Being good is hard, being bad is always easy. Maybe you need pills to go through it? Or maybe you simply need tender loving care, you need love, you need to be loved, you need to fall in love? Love isn’t something we invented, maybe it means something more? Maybe it’s the only thing that can save you? Maybe you’re looking for salvation? Maybe you need it like a drug? Maybe you’re emotionally dependent? But, never forget, you’re doing the best you can. It’s too late to save the world, sometimes, you have to save yourself.

Track Name: Decay
A long time ago I was one of you.
You're all brand new and perfect.
No mistakes, no regrets.
People look at you and think of how wonderful your future will be.
They want you to be something special...
Like a...A doctor or a lawyer.
I hate to tell you this, but if you grow up here,
you're more likely to wind up selling your bodies on the streets.

They want you to be something special.
How wonderful your future will be?

Or shooting dope from dirty needles in a bus stop.
And if you're successful,
you'll make money selling junk to crackheads.
And you won't think twice about killing someone's wife,
because you won't even know what was wrong in the first place.
Or, maybe... you'll end up like me...A hobo with a shotgun!
I hope you can do better. You are the future.

How wonderful your future will be?
They want you to be something special.

Samples taken from the movie ''Hobo With A Shotgun''.
Track Name: Anxiety
Every living creature on earth dies alone.

It reminded me of my dog, Callie.
She died when I was eight and she crawled underneath the porch.
To die...
To be alone...

Time's up.

Do you feel alone right now?
I mean, I'd like to believe I'm not, but I just...
I've just never seen any proof, so I...
I just don't debate it anymore.
I could spend my whole life debating it over and over again,
weighing the pros and cons and in the end,
I still wouldn't have any proof soo I just...
I just don't debate it anymore. It's absurd.
The search for God is absurd?
It is if everyone dies alone.

I don't want to be alone.

Time's up.

I don't want to be alone.

Samples taken from the movie ''Donnie Darko''.
Track Name: Adaptation
Life is short, I need to make the most of it.
Today is the first day of the rest of my life.

All I do is sit on my fat ass.
If my ass wasn't fat i'd be happier.
I wouldn't have to wear these shirts with the tails out all the time.
Like that's fooling anyone...Fat ass.
I should start jogging again.
Five miles a day.
Really do it this time.
Maybe rock climbing?
What do I need to do?
I need to fall in love.

I need to fall in love.
I need to have a girlfriend.

I need to read more, improve myself.
Just be real. Confident.
Isn't that what women are attracted to?
Men don't have to be attractive.
But that's not true, especially these days.
Almost as much pressure on men as there is on women these days.
Why should I be made to feel I have to apologize for my existence?
But i'll still be ugly though...
Nothing's gonna change that...

Shut up!
Adapt.

Maybe it's my brain chemistry?
Maybe that's what's wrong with me : bad chemistry.
All my problems and anxiety can be reduced to a chemical imbalance or some kind of misfiring synapses.
I need to get help for that.
But i'll still be ugly though...
Nothing's gonna change that...

Samples taken from the movie ''Adaptation''.
Track Name: Relief
Love isn't something we invented.

Maybe it means something more?
Something we can't yet understand.
Maybe it's some evidence, some artifact of a higher dimension
that we can't consciously perceive.
Love is the one thing we're capable of perceiving
that transcends dimensions of time and space.

Love isn't something we invented.
Maybe it means something more?

Love isn't something we invented.
It's observable, powerful.
It has to mean something.
Maybe it means something more?
Something we can't yet understand.
Maybe it's some evidence, some artifact of a higher dimension
that we can't consciously perceive.
Love is the one thing we're capable of perceiving
that transcends dimensions of time and space.
Maybe we should trust that, even if we can't understand it.
