It’s that moment when you realize this one is not going to be any different; the reluctant acceptance of mercuriality as the status quo. Maybe chaos really is the natural state of things.

The groove delivers, the voice will entrance. This song sneaks itself into your thoughts and does not let go. What stays is the messaging, and the closeness to daily life: it’s the juxtaposition we all have between the hero in our heart, and the realist in our mind.

“I dream but it takes time
Off my chest and on my mind
‘Cause someday is not tonight”— LACES
