Featuring Asia Argento and Anna-Lou Castoldi

lyrics

‘I would sit on a chair for most of the day, just staring ahead. I could sink in a tiny stain and be absorbed completely.
A tiny stain could hold my attention for three, four hours, without needing to look away from this microscopic world.’
‘I felt that objects bothered me, and this was very painful. They didn’t do anything special; they didn’t attack me directly; they didn’t speak to me. They bothered me because... of their presence. I perceived objects as if they were detached from one another; so smooth, like minerals; bright, tense, they terrified me. When I looked at a glass,
I didn’t understand its use, its function. A glass wasn’t
a water container anymore. No! It didn’t have a name,
a function, a meaning. It was just an object, and this object began to exist on its own. This is what scared me so much. In this surreal place, in the silence of my perception, the object suddenly appeared. This glass was there, in front of me, teasing me with its presence, its existence. I had to look away, I was so afraid. But then I would start looking at a table, a chair, which also existed, manifested with their presence. I tried escaping by saying their name.
I would say ‘glass, table, chair’, ‘this is a glass’, but the word was detached, it didn’t have a meaning. On one side there was the living thing, laughing at me, and on the other there was the name, meaning less, like an empty shell. I couldn’t bring them together, and I stood there, facing them, so frightening. So I would start moaning, ‘objects bother me... I’m frightened!’ ‘objects bother me... I’m frightened!’ ‘objects bother me... I’m frightened!’ ‘objects bother me... I’m frightened!’
