Great Day – Four Tet Remix (Madvillain)


                                 What are

                                 thoughts like

                                 before the synapse?                                               the great divide.

                                 many men are left

               behind.

                                       All    lined   up   on   one   node.

                                       Rows, columns, groups of men

                                       all  thoughts  all   thought  out.

                                       Forward,                           march.

                       Oceans, canyons, mountains, all of the

                                        above.

                                                                         Gunfire.

                                               bodies fall strewn visceral drenched dirt or air or water

                                    push on almost there see

see            ahead the encampment flying our flag shredded by the            bullet          breeze

                     home stretch for              cracked windpipes

                                                                           and stained fingers nails

                                                                                      no coffins nailed for the dead on the field

                                                                                                                                                    just gone.

but

Safe on the                

other                           

side, count them all. 

Battles first of many.

                   Many more will          

                                                   fall.                  

                                 What are

                                 thoughts like

                                 before the synapse?                                               the great divide.

                                 many men are left

               behind.

I think that’s how it happened, but there were probably more battles and conflicts, and now that I think about it there was probably a better reason to go where they did. How many of them were there again? Did we lose too many or did we come out of this one relativity unscathed?

I think the war has been over for some time now.
