My girlfriend Caiti said to me, very profoundly for her intoxicated state at the time, “To ask why, is to live” and whilst counting traffic last summer I wrote some words that were meant to reflect that sentiment. I ended up with something that was pretty heavy-going and not very good reading/listening – I don’t think. But I’m still in love with the turn of phrase, it rolls from the tong beautifully and is full of philosophical meaning. I guy I used to work with would refer to it as “a poser”.
I used a few sections of these words in a bouncy dark dance track, with a highly distorted vocal track. It sounds pretty good I think and may well end up on the album. There’s no way you could tell its me either.
