it is no longer impressive to me to
00:05
watch these melancholy documentaries

00:11
we love or eat is a bunch of shitty
00:14
people run by money sex and greed I’m

00:22
beauty of the forest obsessing on
00:24
low-hanging fruit what about my soul
00:26
what about this life what about the
00:28
infinite space in the sky what about the
00:31
galaxies of possibilities swimming in my
