aseaofsongs: I’d give you all I have If I could get it back…

I’d give you all I have
If I could get it back
This has been the very best of me
I hope you end up missing me
And I’ll hold on to that

Above all, there’s the story. It goes anything like: fighting fighting fighting each and every day til your nails look to stain with it, til you say alright, til you feel this is what the preacher meant when he screamed purgatory. You’re attempting to pummel your thoughts into poems and she’s trying not to collapse. (Or at least, that’s the synopsis on the back of the straight-to-dvd case but on the B-roll there’s half an hour of outtakes of you pressing play on this song.)

Kronos lights up in time with your fag, 00.04, and burns by way of your skull, unrepentant.

Κρόνος was the leader of the initial generation of Titans, children of the sky and the earth.

Kronos holds still as a thread among the you who pored more than photos of fading ancient letters and the you who tore tendons scribbling lies and the you who can’t quit shaking apart at the seams.

This song is aggressive in a way Keaton Henson isn’t, generally, and it shocks but it is a balm at the exact same time. Right here you as well are allowed to be angry in the way that you can’t when it is not 3 AM and too warm to sleep, right here is a location where you can rage, right here is what’s becoming supplied. I’ll hold on to that.
