Alone in the RESO

To be alone
And fine
Is the ultimate fuck you
And the ultimate surrender

I give up
Give up on what everyone thinks of my flaws
(But not my good bits)
Give up on what people want from me
(Unless they’re paying)
Give up on love
(Unless there’s maybe sex?)

Ah. Ah ah ah.
(Revelation!)

There is to be no victory ever in surrender
(Except maybe Japan and Germany’s postwar economies)

There’s no alone

There’s loneliness
At the other end of the Underground City

There’s the joy of the wind without a hat
(Pour une fois, il est possible de profiter du vent sans chapeau)

There’s pondering the situation
And being part of someone’s pondering somewhere
