I think this is the trouble conflating internal and external struggle, i think.


Breaking with desire I can smell the air from tyres.
(I wanted to make something louder than me)
Every waking hour I am haunted by the party brokers towers so excited as they feed.

I wanted to believe I deserved the air I breathe
I was wrong, I swear.
But I can't break what I cannot see.

Bracing me is like a slow disease.
(I wanted to make something louder than me)
The bodies of the fallen lie in patterns on the roadway
like the playing out of particles they cling together

Can't you see that it's broken,
can't you see that it's bigger than me?
I can tall that it's over now.

(So let these waves pour over me;
these bodies could never hold us.)
