about

Seriously though, did you ever actually believe that we, our cities, our civilization, our technology were somehow magically separate from "nature"? Our technology IS our biology and we are of this Earth. Our cities are our anthills, the country is our garden, playground and dump. Indivisible. And yet we are still stardust. Therein lies the beauty of it all. Although yes, I do hate living in cities; I prefer wilderness by a long shot.

lyrics

Consider me your northern star
Consider me your cross
Consider me in some universe
Consider me as lost
Consider me as lost as I am

Consider me as random
Consider me with awe
Consider me some blossom
Consider me some flaw
Consider I just found out who you are

In this urban country I can’t feel
I’m as good as dumb and numb for real
So many miles and time away
And the wicked waves of memory
Might peel away what’s left of me
I stand
As I am

Consider me as different
Consider me the same
Consider me your teammate
Consider me your maid
Consider you were made just as I am

Consider me as trade-off
Consider me the bomb
Consider me the tenant
Consider me as gone

In this urban country I can’t feel
I’m as good as dumb and numb for real
So many miles and time away
And the wicked waves of memory
Might rip away what’s left of me
I stand
As I am

As I stand
As I am
