This is so beautiful and relevant to current events.
“I grew up really into music and comic books, on welfare in the inner-city. I’m pretty certain that combination has fueled my appreciation for outcasts, Marxist rage, and belief that love in the face of adversity is the ultimate act of resistance. Self-love, in particular, when the whole world is trying to tell you that you just aren’t pretty, smart, rich, thin, or good enough, is something I find revolutionary.”
Manchester Orchestra - I Can Feel a Hot One
I am but a clean man, stable and alone man
Make it so I won’t have to try
The faces always stay the same
So I’ll face the fact that I’m just fine
I said that I’m just fine
I remember, head down
After you had found out
Manna is a hell of a drug
And I need a little more, I think
Because enough is never quite enough
I adore this song. I feel a bit off today. I suppose by off I mean sad, in the way one’s heart feels heavier suddenly without much cause or reason. On my way home this afternoon I listened to this song and felt even more heavier in a way that I wanted to cry. I’m not sure what is enough either.
