NOTES
History confused with mystery… This song is about anxiety. Anxiety pertaining to: Power that wants to squeeze the truth out of our bodies. The current fascination with our racial profiles. Obsession with DNA tests, genealogical and ancestral records, family trees. The unconscious impulses that drive our scientific adventures. The embarrassing truths of our quests for knowledge. The dreams of purity we act out. Community forced into information. The complexity we monetize. The entrepreneurship of identity. The unspeakable weight we bear in our bodies. The mute testimony of abuse. The deafening silence of bruises in the skin. The never-ending spiral of racism out in the open and behind closed doors.

lyrics

i am the agent of a secret decree. i deliver a message i do not recognize. and i wanted to know. but i could not see. and i wanted to know. but i could not believe. silence begets silence. we’re silent. i am the instrument of an ulterior motive. i deliver a message i do not understand. and i wanted to know. but i could not foresee. and i wanted to know. but i could not believe. violence inscribed in silence. we’re violent. speech echoes speech. we repeat. silence begets silence. we’re silent. dear next of kin. there’s a history in the skin. dear next of kin. take my silence in. unfold it in the skin.
