lyrics

I did an unknown crawl,
And I could not hear,
And I could not see,
And I could not breath.
And this trench was blurred,
I mean there was no edge,
Phenomenology,
But before that word.
I looked for this place
Because it had to be.
It is a resting place
For the atmosphere.

Inspecting
The place where we know these things should be.
Projecting
Pre-structural energy.

I went underground,
I went back in time,
To see a history
Where concrete soon would lie.
There was no noise to make,
Although my mouth produced.
It was a sightly blur
That tasted like it felt.
I could not discern,
No, I could not discern
That I could not discern.
And so the blur remained.

Inspecting
The place where we know these things should be.
Projecting
Pre-structural energy.

Into the geosphere,
Beneath this yearn for terms,
What we pretend to learn
When there is nothing earned.
To linger in these turns
Is not empirical,
A soft-hemmed miracle;
It’s pre-rhetorical.
A body before bones,
An unlikely swim,
No body politics;
A body without bones.

Inspecting
The place where we know these things should be.
Projecting
Pre-structural energy.
