Reflections from 2020:

Transformation is where I live. Every few years or so I do a complete overhaul and clear out anything that isn't serving a purpose, taking up space in a dusty corner of my psyche. I dismantle, sort, and reflect. When I rebuild it's as though whoever I was before is gone. Birth, death, rebirth, repeat.

lyrics

Down, down, down to the river
Down, down, down to the ground
Down, down, down underwater
Down, down, down

I find it’s been some time since my last transformation
And I find that I miss how it feels to transform
You pride up your back
And I let out my sails
And I pull up my anchor again

Down, down, down to the river
Down, down, down to the ground
Down, down, down underwater
Down, down, down

I’m caught on a path with a clear destination
Though I know at one time I had no destiny
This suit that I’m wearing
It fits me too perfectly
I need to be naked again

Down, down, down to the river
Down, down, down to the ground
Down, down, down underwater
Down, down, down

I could drown, drown, drown
As if I could drown, drown, drown
On my way down, down, down
Come lead me down, down, down

Down, down, down to the river
Down, down, down to the ground
Down, down, down underwater
Down, down, down

Down, down, down
