a sort of stream of consciousness-y thing ive been writing lately. i saw this timelapse vid today by bluebudgie and was really inspired to experiment with it. i understand how this might be seen as political or preachy or offensive.. but i honestly dont mean to be any of those things. it is directed at me more than anyone else. there's a lot of literary reference nod's in the text.
sub-point: the track is an instrumental version of everything is on fire
everything flows sweetly when you slow down
unwind all your tapes and dance to ghost sounds
i'm in another world, and you're breaking up
but i'll call you soon.. if i make it back
ghosts of you are
through the walls and
goodnight sweet princes and princesses,
may flights of angels with umbrellas shield your sacred heads from rain
as you flow sweetly on your way.
our lives will never be the same..
i used to fly with peter pan in videoland and i saw people coming out from underground. gather up you silent searchers and lets go loudly into quiet churches lets surround the walls of guarded buildings and make our sound. lets invade palaces, they are always around when we sing out their anthems but not when we drown in video lala
i put this together quickly and roughly. on the one hand i like the lightness/roughness of it contrasting with the serious tone of the audio, on the other it might be spelling things out which are meant to be left to interpretation. if u think it doesn't work well by itself please use any bits you like in your own vid!
