OWNERSHIP IS
NOT LOVE

it was the most important
love of my life

he was a poet
he used to write me poems

maybe I was wrong
to be so proud

but if you don't trust a person
there's no point

OWNERSHIP IS
NOT LOVE

POWER IS
ALWAYS TEMPORARY

he was a completely
amoral man

i suffered more
from that than
anything else

that man's immorality

it's horrible because
i can't cope with this

POWER IS
ALWAYS TEMPORARY

VIOLENCE IS
FAILURE ACTED OUT

surrounded by army,
you think you're going to die

you can't shower
because they'll find you nude

they used to say,
i may die tomorrow

you have to work out
how not to die tomorrow

VIOLENCE IS
FAILURE ACTED OUT
