about

concerning empathy and apathy

lyrics

Asphalt Anomie
Sorry, let’s be honest/ Honest?/ Empathy for every life’s a lie
No more will I stomach all these tales of tears the Anchor whores belie
Never met this Cory, but he’s gone now that’s his story, gory pointless pain, why am I attached?
Turns out he was right here, just a mile from where we talked about Last Rights

Normally I ignore fear-mongering reports – Who has time for every soul?
But this one’s proceeding, triggering such earnest thoughts
Take my word away

I’ve said it once and again and again and again, no yield
History is a slaughterhouse you can’t cry at every meal
We make Cory something more than cheerful loose abuse on channel 9
Not just one more stat; faux blotter of chaos caked streets pearl whites invite
Instead I hold him up to say a part of me will find a way to suffer bleakest breaks of day with pride
We’ll stand outside moral outcry, [those] nervously complacent while they watch

They can stand and abhor, but disagreeing will reinforce: this was the final reward
They don’t have to like it we’ll be fine out on our own
Take my words away

I’ve said it once and again and again and again, no yield
History is a slaughterhouse you can’t cry at every meal

Anxious calls came through, this dialogue engrained:
Will’s mom: “You’re not the victim!”
And my mom: “Did you hit him?”
See it’s closer to us than they’ll bother to believe
A reason to remember someone
I have never even seen
Cory’s not my friend, we’re not so insincere
But he’s a part these ideas, secure
In songs he’ll never hear
I’ve said it once and again and again, no yield
History is a slaughterhouse
And you can’t cry at every meal

Take away time
I’ll be here wasting face and time
