We Could Be Dangerous


What happened to this city?

It chewed you up and spit you right back out

into the suburban safety-net you’ve been tangled up in your whole life.

You spoke of leaving everything behind because it was rotten,

and now you’ve gone back to it. You’ve come full circle.

In digital code people perceive themselves as icons.

A new era of self-worship is here, and the only reason they pay attention

to anyone else is in some hope that others will pay attention to them.

When in contrast, we do it just for the fuck of it.

There is usually nothing better to do, and we might as well create.
