||Slip B 5
||Disruption is what you call it when you have not figured out how to have your own idea without unhaving other people's ideas.|
||Saves The World
||Harder, but not always better, but sometimes, is realizing that you only get to keep your own ideas, in the end, if they do not exist at other people's expense. Sometimes this means you have to say the same words differently, distendedly, until the meaning leaks out of them and you can start over.|
||Bat For Lashes
||You can tell an instrument to make the sound a person could make if they were made of wires and keys,|
||and in doing so you've proven nothing about what people are, but infinite things about desire.|
||"Golden - Single Edit"
||Do you want to stop time tonight?|
||18th & Addison
||Old Blues / Modern Love 4
||We had this power once, and the sun never rose again.|
||Nobody who knows us trusts us.|
||It's Real / What Kind of Monster Are You? 2
||We started the sun again, of course, or the Earth or whatever it was,|
||and this proves nothing about our remorse, but many things about what we fear.|
||"never was mine"
||We have stood upon the shoulders of giants, and dropped their severed heads|
||into crowds, on slopes above sleeping towns,|
||Future / Fate / Forever 5
||to introduce our new warning songs.|
||To the Teeth
||Now we stand on the hill, waiting to see if the climbers are carrying cameras or torches.|
||The new models converge.|
||"Fiender är tråkigt"
||They are running up that hill,|
||"Tambores de la Rebelión"
||Salto Al Color
||hounds below and birds above:|
||Saves The World
||waiting for us to fall,|
||or waiting to report our triumphs to Odin,|
||For Tracy Hyde
||New Young City
||or maybe both of these and also just flying because wouldn't you fly if you could?|
||"Our State of Mind"
||Nobody who knows us assumes we someday won't.|
||Every time they hear that noise, they spin and look up to see.|
||Next time. Next time it will be us.|
||All Good Soldiers
||Our veins already reach from the soil to the edge of the air.|
||04 Limited Sazabys
||From there it's only a short jump to freedom and void.|
||Ivy to Fraudulent Game
||It's not time we seek to stop, really.|
||Time is harmless, monotonic, encouraging.|
||"BEYOND THE TIME MEBIUSUNO SORAWO KOETE"
||Day and night are failures of perspective.|
||The sun offers no defense of behavior,|
||not because it is above criticism,|
||but because its behavior and ours exist on discontiguous planes.|
||KAMEN RIDER GIRLS
||"Build up - 仮面ライダーGIRLS 01 ver."
||Is there any number of ducks after which you would consider it your responsibility to write yourself into their mythology?|
||"From the Edge (feat. LiSA)"
||The ducks hope there isn't, but you know.|
||The Dark Element
||"Songs the Night Sings"
||They need their own stories about how you are, because your stories about how you are have nothing to do with them.|
||"We Are One"
||Our patience runs out, and we populate our own cosmologies.|
||Nobody who has seen our blades forgets.|
||"In Alt Univers"
||You cursed us to spend eternity pushing rocks uphill,|
||"Dead Wind Intermezzo"
||and now the mountain reaches to your gates.|
||"The Greatest Fall"
||The Call 4
||If we fall now, we take you with us.|
||"Utkáno z prostých řas"
||Nikander - stolen kidneys
||Then again, that was also true at sea level.|
||The rocks and salt will not outlive us unchanged.|
||"Shadows Coming Home"
||Mercury (20th Anniversary Edition)
||We were the demons of hope.|
||"God of Love"
||The dinosaurs had stature, but not posture;|
||Els Sepulcres Blancs
||they fell, but we collapse.|
||Paleontologists reason indirectly that saurian skin may have been hued.|
||Our alien excavators will know all about our colors.|
||Too much. Nobody who knows us can tell us apart.|
||"Message from the Sun"
||The dawn sends its love, but also says to tell us to get up and come outside.|
||AGE OF REFLECTION
||"Here I Stand"
||We can stand on a hill in the sunshine.|
||It's not a trick. The hill accepts us, the sun is not diminished by our presence.|

||We are exempt from half of the most intractable obstacles to civilization.|
||The oceans rise, but we have oceans.|
||Hatred surges, but only in the tiny vacuums left by the turbulent passage of love.|
||Fear Of Tigers
||Echo Drop 4
||We have stood in the ruins of giants, cataloging their archaeoastronomies.|
||"Algunos Tenemos Fe"
||Credulous aliens will attribute spurious motives to our dysfunctions and hubrises, too.|
||But we never intended to leave, much less return.|
||"I Get Used to It"
||Ours were legends of acclimation right up until the climate ran out.|
||A Tribe Called Red
||We believed we were spirits of the earth, but the crust believed itself the spirit of the mantle.|
||World's End Girlfriend
||"RENDERING THE SOUL"
||Atheism is not an assertion of absence so much as an observation of transitivity:|
||"Pitch Black Light"
||Burns In Film 5
||if there are gods, then their concern is their gods.|
||"For People Like Us"
||Portrait in Silver
||Solipsism is survivalist pragmatism:|
||"Into the Unknown"
||we have all this power, and yet the sun comes and goes in the same place no matter what we offer.|
||"Tin Foil Drip"
||Perhaps we are the sun's gods,|
||Sleeping With Sirens
||"Never Enough (feat. Benji Madden)"
||How It Feels to Be Lost
||conjectured over millions of miles,|
||selecting only the fewest and finest proffered rays to bless and return.|
||Time + Tide
||Your divinity is our albedo.|
||"Running All the Way Home"
||Your deliverance is our return.|
||The ravens land on our shoulders, now, tired of searching fruitlessly for Odin and trying to convey the fragility and depth of the world to an immortal with a single eye.|
||"Girls Like Me"
||Wild as Me 6
||They see everything, and know every secret, and twitter them into each of our ears both of them at the same time in birdsong translated into Norwegian.|
||Maddie & Tae
||Other people's superpowers are petulantly and mercifully irrelevant to our causes,|
||"Til the Light Goes Out"
||but idolizing them in silhouette|
||Dominion - Single 3
||teaches us about paradigms and lighting techniques,|
||MASTER BOOT RECORD
||and reminds us that, like superstition, technology is also ethically metaphorical.|
||"The Fangs of Apep"
||Bellymetal, Vol. 2
||Each generation is more self-aware of its authorial responsibility for its own teleology,|
||like a desert electrification of the conscience.|
||"Skye Boat Song"
||There is a bridge to Skye. The song remains.|
||There is a catamaran to Nova Scotia, which was already connected by land.|
||"I Wanna Be Your Robot"
||Here Come the Wolves
||Robots are stories about how we make decisions.|

||"Deranged for Rock & Roll"
||We were always better at poignancy than precognition,|
||First to Eleven
||freer in citation than improvisation,|
||For Tracy Hyde
||New Young City
||better in the dark.|
||"It's Gonna Be Okay, Baby"
||Saves The World
||But nobody knows us at night, at least not for certain. The world turns another degree or two, and doubt and light pour back in, and this time, this time what if it were us?|
