about

Contains a sample from 'For Bunita Marcus' by Morton Feldman.

lyrics

Tonight's the night, for living on the edge
Though living on the edge is a means to an end
I've had a fight notwithstanding fists
Though if I did, I think I'd wither and bend
Wither/bend for all my doubting friends
Who go all the way around you
Lessen grip and let the feelings come thick and fast
And all the way around you

The subtle art of getting through the day
All is purposeless, it doesn't mean anything
Another fight, this one halving fists
I've taken them, and I've taken too much
I'm hellbent now for all my heaven sends
Cos I've no heaven-sense
I'm all the way around you
Simmer down and let the debt accrue
I'd spend it all the way around you

It's what it is now. I'll carry this down. Surrounding thoughts all fall away. I'm left with familiar blurry sounds. 'Aren't you proud? A quarter way to six figures, and all the free time in the world?' It only grows.
