It was the last time I felt like this, I felt
nothing at all. & I was fifteen when you
got sick, I still remember the phone call.
When they said there’s something inside of
You, so they tried radiation & chemicals
too & now you’re standing on the last
line, & so am I, I’ve got you. & you’ve
got me too, hold on, I’ve got you.
You said there’s broken links in your
brain, & I said “It’s ok, mine’s exactly
the same.” There’s still some things I don’t
understand, like the casual blindness toward
the cruelty of man. & a cop shot the
wrong guy again & they tore down a
childhood home again. Nobody seemed
to blink an eye when they wanted you to
pay to see the sky. I’m running out
of time, & you’re still running for your life.
There are days I wish you could forget when the
Broken glass cut open my arm & my
chest, & you just held me down as the
needle went in & out. & mum was
retracing her steps, when the doctor
asked her for a cigarette, a two year
old child in a hospital bed. I will never
run with glass again. Just like you said
“don’t be an idiot.”
& I know that when you go, part of me
will go with you to the infinite unknown. &
will stand at the edge of the divide, & I
will hold your hand & together we’ll dive.
& I will never meet a man that can make me
question like the way you can. A defender
of freedom, an advocate for truth. I’m
so proud that half of me grew from you.
All the broken parts too. I’ve got you.
I will always hear you when I
speak, I will always see your face in me.

This album sounds so personal. The music and the poignant lyrics are not just hers anymore. I feel like they're a part of me now. And now I own the clear orange with purple splatter vinyl. It's freaking amazing!! Aneesh Dandime
