And stop counting on that camera
That hangs round your neck
Because it won’t ever remember
What you choose to forget
This verse just struck me so deep. It’s not the camera per se, but everything that considers a ‘point-of-view’. Do we really want to write or take a picture etc. for a sake of capturing a certain mood? Is it really good to just remember what you want to remember? It’s so fitting to what has happened to me— almost like a literal metaphor. (Of course the verse doesn’t refer to just that but I choose to see it that way)
‘Just drink until the clock has circled all the way’
And I can’t say just how much I adore this metaphor. Nonchalant but not exactly with the seen-it-all kind of world-weariness.
