9GOATS BLACK OUT – Panta rhei

Comrades who disagree with each other are tied together and transiently glimmer
Without stopping, they burn and sway and flowing away
Rotting and aging flowers are budding
A broken world, a sea of anxiety I can’t shake off
It’s you who decides the final stop
Children who convey their voices, connect their fingers, and don’t tremble
Just loving each other, just wanting each other, just living and dying
Isn’t that all?

Now, gazing at shadows, the children aren’t frightened by passing days
Still arriving, still charmed by each other, still living
That is everything
Comrades who disagree with each other are tied together and transiently glimmer
Existing, and yet, an improper world
Corroded scenery, a disastrous rain that can’t be wiped away
Demise is held in your hands

Children who don’t even dream won’t sigh in the days that pile up
Still resounding, still answering, still living
It’s okay if that’s all
Children who convey their voices, connect their fingers, and don’t tremble
Just loving each other, just wanting each other, just living and dying
Isn’t that all?
