Makes your brain wheels turn.
Few steps back and there you are. An apartment above some lawyers office. Three bedrooms with the view on somebody else. You being that somebody's view at the same time. Kitchen with the sticky floor. So sticky that it feels if you stand there too long you won't be able too move you feet. And you don't wanna stay there too long since the sink started to breathe. It's alive all right and you don't want to guess what it eats.
The owner is sitting in the living room, in front of the TV, draining his second bottle of vodka and minding his business while his dogs keep licking the cheese from the empty pizza box...
Silence is when someone hits that Big Pause Button.
World doesn't work without a sound.
Earth doesn't move without the noise.
Silence is when you don't exist.
And then static fills your ears again and everything is normal. Rain comes back, carlights blind you and the earth is moving again. When you hear Lullaby
you know everything is good; the old owner got eaten by his dogs one night and the apartment has a new owner. He'll probably redecorate. He'll have to kill that kitchen sink...
