Memory: I watched the beetles clean flesh from the bones, and Bones tell the story of a life lived, measured in fissures and fossae. That’s what I wanted to do. Strip it back in song.

Lesson: A chrysalis approach to life is profound, and worth the courage it asks in return.

lyrics

Strip it back
All the layers and opacities
Masking incapacities
I have played many parts to the bone
Now let the beetles do their holy work
Tell the story ridge by quirk
I commit to every start

But then I wind up here again
Time for a reset to factory specs
Before I know what happens next
Under the red
Away from the lens
I get to reset and start again

Pack it in
Cut my losses and my atrophies
And my barely dry catastrophes
I can break any mold if I try
Now that the fissures are invisible
Counting every syllable
I'm convinced the story's told

But then I wind up here again
Time for a reset to factory specs
Before I know what happens next
Under the red
Away from the lens
I get to reset and start again

Start again
Start again
