lyrics

Hearing airhorns, vuvuzelas,
houses emptied for miles around.
The sound of exhaled breath dragging in the throat.

Sounds of braying crowds.
Does it need voicing?
'The winner will win.
Now the winner will win.'

Never felt such heaviness.
Such incessant, tireless weight.
Sometimes it is what it is.
Sometimes it is what it is.
Sometimes there aren't any factors, vectors, choices.

Can smell breath,
carping, honking, whistling...
Hear them:
'Sometime, the winner will win.
Will win.' No shit.

Sounds of breathing.
The sounds of breathing.
The sound of breathing.
What a stale stench.
What intransigence.

This body should have been pulped
and the mind gone.
Gone.

Have barely felt such heaviness.
Such incessant, tireless weight.
Have never felt such willingness.
They think the winner would win.
