i was born in an even year, i was born in space age year, supposed to be devoid of fear, nowhere near supposed to be the future, too much like the past life used to be so slow, now it's exponentially fast i try to hold my own point of view, but there's something better, there's something new i cannot be an instrument of change, though i am constant, you are rearranged so i make my way in reverse, but there's something faster, something there first digital agent in concrete opsoleta, technology's last stand oh darling won't you take me by the hand so much later than the engineer had planned delete data like drawings in the sand all in some language i couldn't recognize, a random script of numbers, set to organize all the refuse lost in time and space, basicode of a distant place memories of the future, final vestige of the past, while it was abundant, now it's infinitely vast i try to hold my own point of view, but there's something better, there's something new i cannot be an instrument of change, though i am constant, you are rearranged so i make my way in reverse opsoleta, walk along my side show me what's left of nature, i'll let you be my guide i'll never finish this program i began, after all i'm a simple minded man

monday,12th of may, an average day, dull rain, feel the drain need a plane or a train to get me far away, somewhere like dushanbe heading east from the caspian, by sea, by land, tajikistan, got no reason, got no plan a voice in the pamir's calling me, my destiny just like a sailor so far from the sea, I'd forgotten exactly who I claimed to be wanted to live my life aimlessly give up and take up a new identity from a wireless world it’s a world away from a lonesome world i'll fly someday to a garden city, green and grey, i find myself in dushanbe travelling from a distant land, where the river meets the trees and sand from the city to the registan of samarkand running in circles can you show me the way шаб и марг - شب مرگ driving a dusty road in a rusty mercedes benz, days would pass as i journey past, mountains, spires, telephone wires garden city, green and grey, i find myself in dushanbe stars crossed in the sky to carry me here, if they do, my heart will stay in the walls, in the trees, in the mountains and the breeze, in the skies, in the eyes of dushanbe

balance a delicate edge, play with gravity in the fine art of survival, risk is necessary resilience comes naturally, but so does a skull crack it all depends on the effect of the impact so gracefully you fall, crash your horns into the wall if you keep standing in the shade never find love, you'll merely fade

yukon night - 14:05 - can’t stay alive 25 minutes yearning and burning too much moonshine too much energy on the fringes of the city don’t the northern lights look pretty on the border of the prefecture and the nature the nightlife's full of spies, the walls have ears, the trees have eyes, eyeing down the chamber of a gun the sunsets at 15:00 again, yukon night tempo steady, on a dancing floor across the sea of synthetic light in the taxi towards the last gleam of the sun ferns and velvet on the wall steam and sweat around the room it keeps away the gloom in winter's shade a hazy neon glow 50 below fahrenheit, adrift in the arctic night, washed away in white the sunsets at 15:00 again, yukon night tempo steady, on a dancing floor across the sea of synthetic light tempo steady, on a dancing floor adrift, washed away in white

moderate, useless trying to wait, it's one or the other in this land one or zero, black or white, right or left, day or night, decisions out of your hands make a friend, or enemy, break contact with one, for me cause it's one of two, you must choose, and nothing else, you must lose teary eyes, teary eyes now this won't stop your cries wouldn't it be easier if your heart was polarized? where you need not show confusion just let algebra decide, wouldn't it be easier if your heart was polarized? contradiction, within restriction, power shifting, fifty percent you're the rebel, but you're obliged, no words to make an argument feeling like, a convict's bride, urged to take the jury's side one mob's out to get you, the other respects you, but damned if they ever protect you and it's one of two, you must choose and nothing else, you must… vote x, vote z, vote y, vote q, sign the cosine, dotted line, trigonometry, pointed at you different parties, same old rule, just a helpless cog, the government's tool a thousand eyes, spies all around, in data banks, your file is found they could arrest you, at any time, without committing, a legitimate crime just because, you had to choose, you must… teary eyes, teary eyes, now this won't stop your cries but wouldn't it be easier if your world was polarized? where all was left and the rest was right, and you could take a side, wouldn't things be easier if your world was …
