The Designs of Humanity

Sometimes I think about who we are.

the lake of losing

when mixing music, i get a lot of time to sit and think about each and every word that makes it on the track. this morning i woke up to a song i recorded with allison robins, called “ the lake of losing“. it’s a heavily metaphorical song in places, and in others it’s justly direct. one of my favorite lines is “all the lights through the room shut their eyes, step back, fall back, into the lake of losing.” because it shows the type of blind faith it takes to lose everything. the song follows the underlying metaphor that there’s nothing like losing certain things, and it even goes on to say that “losing is such a lovely thing indeed.”
maybe losing the things we’ve been preparing ourselves to lose is really just a form of liberation. listen to it, and chew on it.
