loving the modern world. a producer from Iran found me on Instagram and wanted to collaborate some music, as well. I’ve been working a little more slowly on this one. it didn’t gel as fast…i’m kinda in a darker space rn; going through a lot at home and idk how to deal some days. music and exercise are both healing and help with stress and processing, but it’s definitely a bit cray.
and very crayola with my kids. bahahha

anyway, i was reading Anais Nin’s short stories, and just was so blown away by the “house boat” and “seduction of the minotaur” ….
so this song is kind of a dedication to her (Lillian) and her work, as well as a mixture of a love song, and a song to myself, i guess. inner work, outer work, transcendence….isn’t it all the same, really. *existential phenomenology*

so i’m standing in the ring
so i take another swing
so i take another hit
it’s another bloody lip
knowing damn well this is worth it

so another monster dead
each time another layer’s shed
cause i am climbing all the bars
even tho i’m seeing stars
knowing damn well this is worth it

i’m i’m i’m i’m
i’m gonna fight for you
time time time time
for all the exiles too
oh i’d i’d i’d i’d
i’d knock the whole world down
for time time time time
for you to be here now

so you wanna get deep
you know i’m turnin in my sleep
cause there’s a switchblade in my bed
break a bottle on their head
knowing damn well this is worth it

let the minotaur out
let the sirens’ play guitar
it’s time now’
centaurs, hydras, typhon’s heads
i’ll fight them all
for you instead

baby you know i’m feelin somethin deep
the way your eyes see me
it’s like you strip away all the things
that aren’t supposed to be there

i’m i’m i’m i’m
i’m gonna fight for you
time time time time
for all the exiles too
oh i’d i’d i’d i’d
i’d knock the whole world down
for time time time time
for you to be here now

and so you’re feeling pretty hot
the exile fever that you caught
it’s like you’re waiting for your ship
with another bloody lip
but it’s the only chance you’ve got

i’ll fight this fight with you love you
know it’s in the stars above we’ll
dock our house boat have some fun
and just in case we’ll keep our guns

and so your target is in sight
you start to feel it in the night
and you know you’re not alone
while you’re searching for your home
and you know it’s damn while worth it

let the minotaur out
let the sirens’ play guitar
it’s time now’
centaurs, hydras, typhon’s heads
i’ll fight them all
for you instead

baby you know i’m feelin something good
baby you love me just the way you should
it’s like we’re in the velvet sun
and i know i’m supposed to be here

i’m i’m i’m i’m
i’m gonna fight for you
time time time time
for all the exiles too
oh i’d i’d i’d i’d
i’d knock the whole world down
for time time time time
for you to be here now
