you’ll never fade away.
Circa Survive “Travel Hymn”
“Between the seal a church is revealed
And I would rather be…
Lonely along the way
Something set us off into the wrong direction
but within this particular space…
Time starts to slow down
and all of these patterns never change.
So slow down,
‘cause nobody looks at life the same.
And no one was like this ‘til you came along
and reset our dials all wrong.”
An interpretation of Esao Andrews “On Letting Go” by Boi Amani Hashim
Learn to love solitude, to be more alone with yourselves. The tragedy of today’s young people is that they try to unite on the basis of carrying out noisy and aggressive actions so as not to feel lonely, and this is a sad thing. The individual must learn from childhood to be on his own, for this doesn’t mean to be lonely: it means to not get bored with oneself, because a person who finds himself bored when he is alone, it seems to me, is a person in danger.
Taiyō Matsumoto. Tekkon Kinkreet, 1993.
“All you can be is just you cause
You’re real not the plastic type.
But reality sets and
You’re stuck in this plastic life.”
