at no time have i tried

throbbing mattress kitten / data verification failed

download this song


at no time have i tried
to be trapped inside
a giant vat of boiling oil
a too-short life of senseless toil

but meanwhile in my mind
i know a thing found by few
which stays just as hidden from me
as it seems to stay from you

why all this matters
time is an enormous ladder
a length we cannot fathom
and insurpassable chasm
a virtual infantasm

a really long way

and so this story ends
a short while before it begins
to give you even so much as a clue
what these incomprehensible lyrics mean to you.
