Songs

LCD Soundsystem “Someone Great”
Is blasting on WOXY and I am lost
I feel like nothing matters, I wait
My mind is in a serene frost
It’s like my entire self-consciousness is gone
It’s like my entire schoolwork vanishes
It’s like James Murphy’s elite song
It’s like my disappointment he banishes
He took bells away from tie-wearers
The song fades into an Eno b-side
Nothing I make can match the former
Is it the resources, the pride?
Monahan’s beats are clean
And Whang is a machine
