if you listen closely, you can hear it — the sound of water trickling gently under black ice. just when you thought winter might never end, suddenly amidst the sodden trash, a vision of daisies: "because," as we are told, "these are the stakes! to make a world in which all of god's children can live, or to go into the dark! we must either love each other, or we must die."

the fun years never really ended, did they? they started this loop in 2003 and just pressed the latest iteration to tape. and to be honest, you haven't changed, either. so put your ear to the rail and feel the vibration. the steel is cold but the pitch is true.
