this is about overcoming the concept of your own death, of other people's deaths, in order to truly live. It's also about the fragility of life; how we are all snails waiting for our shells to crack under the sole of some mystic shoe.

Track Name: open casket
snail shells crack

my sole untouched

eyelets crying

cotton polyester blend

the wheels go round

they’re right

behind me

life on automatic

will i live

will i wake up

before i die

will i live

will i wake up

fuck knows

i’m gonna try

will i live?

and before you know it

you’re grey and exposed

leaving behind

an audience afraid

leaving behind

everything you have made.
