Clarity - Zedd (ft. Foxes)

Dom and Sub

Below the sea
red is removed
and all is blue

Above, drawn against Haiti
A republic of Dominica

The sub approaches the shore
and surfaces in the harbor

And the Dominican Republic opens her arms
so the ship lays down her armor

The hatch spins open
and El Capitan

Sees the sun for the first time

For every woman
there is a man

For every man
comes a woman

It's good to be home

The 500 Percent

In America, with 15% of the population living below the poverty line, and 1% of the population holding more wealth than nearly all of the bottom 25% combined, there exists a structure of paid off politicians, corrupt corporate rules for leaking insider information, stock trade, and institutionalized bribery. It is an attempt by those traitors to our cause, who sided with the British during the great American revolution - to reinstate the monarchy and reward themselves. It is taxation without representation - the hidden fees, the not so hidden extra work for no pay, the bills that kill.

But within this same group of people, there are those I call the 500%. They are the ones who take most of their information from television and radio, talk radio, or video clips.

I call them the 500% because I recently learned from someone who did a study, that information you gather in this manner is 5 times slower than if you read it. A good example might be found in reading law. If someone spends th…

Heureux Anniversaire

A black and white film
of a man making his way across town.

and she is drunk
it took too long pour sont arrive
lover of gin , one too many

She dreams
talking softly to herself
against the din of rain
and fragments of the sky
burned into the ordinary world
and stolen
like diamonds in the night

I come from a dead place
from pride
from sadness
my body failing
my heart a vacuum

a place where no life could ever exist
a place where I need you the most
a place where passion and coincidence
intersect and tear us all apart
drawn like a moth

She is spinning in the dark
a flapper
pearls against black lace
a black Charleston
set against light we can recognize

And I know at once the sorrow
and joy
I taste the bathtub gin

Mixed by an old man with a halo
and a shock of white hair
and thick glasses

When he says goodbye

Yes, that was our nickname for him. And well deserved. Help take a bite out of crime.
