Q: “Through this album, what do you want to communicate to those listening to it?” T: “Questions like this are the most difficult. This album’s title is ‘My Voice’. From the chorus, it’s only filled with my voice, and I put in an abundance of emotion when I was working on it. Personally, I believe that fans will recognize that emotions like that. I hope you will listen to it in the most comfortable position. Considering my records will come out countlessly going forward.”
ATLAS: do not talk to me of the weight of the world, nor its people’s hearts. you know nothing of endurance. the heavens are heavy and my shoulders ache. i am tired.
APHRODITE: you think holding the earth is enough? you think you are close to them just because they rest on your back? you know nothing of their pain. do you even remember how tears taste?
ATLAS: i know pain. i know bruises that last centuries, bone deep and digging like claws, burrowing like worms through body structure-
APHRODITE: -you know standing still, rigid, a statue in body and soul alike / you know the exact weight of the human heart x 7 billion. you do not know how it feels to watch as they burn in place, how it feels to see them fall; down / in love / to their deaths.
ATLAS: i carry them in life and death. my dear, your hands are soft; they do not understand the strength it takes to balance oceans on knuckles and land against muscle.
APHRODITE: my hands are soft because they hold hearts as easily as you hold the world, and hearts, in their own way, are worlds. i know strength. better yet, i know how easily strength crumbles and i know how to guide through the breaking. do not equate soft with weak. they are not the same thing.
