about

--------
I have received the nicest and most comprehensive review of my music known to humankind, which has furiously and spontaneously awoken inside myself some previously unknown, or otherwise long-stored-away, truths.

Now, knowing that others are listening, I've decided it's time to release all that I have been unreasonably* sitting on. (There's a non-zero amount of it, and even more in the unrecorded stage.)

This was the most relevant track to promptly unearth from this attic; I hope to put the rest out as soon as indiscriminately able.

Thank you for the fire.

*Of course there are reasons, but they have all been, quite suddenly, rendered inane.

lyrics

I don’t want to fight.
I don’t want to take a side or slide from wrong to right.
I don't want to go.

I don't want to climb,
breach the peak to find that I’m at the brink of steep decline.
I don’t want to know.

I don’t want to swim -
stagnant water being fodder for a hydronym.
I don't want to tread.

I don't want to wonder
if this silent flash forecasts a violent crash of thunder.
I don't want to dread.

I don’t want to go.

I don't want to fly.
I don't want to break a stride and ride the long goodbye.
I don't want to brace.

I don't want to run
from everything I've done so far, subpar to everyone.
I don't want to chase.

I don't want to share.
I've still got lots o’thoughts locked in there,
but I don't want to say.

I just want to be…
some unnumbered unencumbered causeless casualty.
I just want to stay.

I don’t want to go away.
Go away.
