Between the noise, I heard a song... Kenopsia: n. the eerie, forlorn atmosphere of a place that’s usually bustling with people but is now abandoned and quiet—a school hallway in the evening, an unlit office on a weekend, vacant fairgrounds—an emotional afterimage that makes it seem not just empty but hyper-empty, with a total population in the negative, who are so conspicuously absent they glow like neon signs.

down n' out


My feet missed the cord

And I'm falling.

I missed the cord and

I'm falling down

Down

Down


I wish I knew before then

Wish I knew you were out

Out

Out


In the dawn of my understanding

I watched you walk away,

Coin flipped

And I lay lies with the lion

Under my bed.


Stopped my heart for this

Beautiful symphony is no

Longer to be played

For the strangers passing

By the sidewalks in moonlight.


'Cause I'm trying to reach out

Only you and I're outta space.

– ages are crawling

back to my bed


And I'm trying to reach out

Only you and I're outta space.

I'm trying to reach out

But I feel outta place.
