Travis Anderson I have only discovered this today and tbh it made me tear up. Plus the happy lil piano adds the perfect amount bliss needed to really let the melancholy echo. <3

about

i think of matt and his art and his experiences

i think of myself and my perspectives and how self-actualization may not be as close as I thought it was

i think of my relationships with other people and how my actions ripple

i think of the catcher in the rye
i think of my friend Abbey as a baby (thank you for the picture)

Track Name: sitting next to your parents at your own funeral
A starched pressed shirt
It's black buttoned up to the neck

You mourned the loss of the things you can't get back

Make sure the lighting is right in the frame by the box

Your hair tangled taped up in archetypical locks

You mourned the loss of your equivocal self

You're resting past refrains of hope you get well

you shred the cards
You hum melodies

Of songs that you had heard before
The familiar rise forgotten words

Of dying young, your brothers songs
Caesura, vertigo, counting wrong

But this doesn't feel like falling
This doesn't feel like falling

Until you're face up in a smaller bed
Surrounded by friends that you've never met
Who talk about food and the places you've been
They ask have you found god
Have you seen him
I'm sure

he will love the stories you tell
You're resting past refrains of hope you get well

you shred the cards
You hum melodies
