blinded by melancholy

The universe is expanding and it’s crumbling. The universe is mortal. It’s disappearing. Everything that we have, everything that we live in is pointless and crumbling. And some people are born with an innate understanding of that. They have this sort of life rage. And this is the melancholy that they find themselves in.
—  Stephen Jenkins describing the song ‘God of Wine’

Trying to forget tomorrow and all that’s happened
This is not the way, the way I was meant to be
I feel, I’m seeing so clear
I thought I was never going to die

I feel, I’m seeing so clear
We need more time
(Anathema, Feel)
