for I have come to silence you
and cure my own diseases.

And when the light shines down
you’ll hide
and crawl into your own abyss
of rotten fruit and glowsticks.

I’ll continue to mess up my own life,

to let it disobey me.

to deserted forests and roof-less homes
we pray for sin and slumber deep
inside our own diseases.
