  • We live our lives at a pace we're not built for.
    We live inside other people's lives more than we should.

    We hustle. We sweat. We move. We swarm.
    Days turn into weeks like cars turn into red ribbons of light.

    What we pursue - we often don't need.
    What we need - we often don't pursue.

    Am I good enough for you? Are you good enough for me?
    Are we good enough for them? Are they good enough for us?

    Is good enough good enough?


    We live our lives on a planet we're not good for.
    We live inside our own creations more than we should.

    We damage. We burn. We waste. We warm.
    Winters turn into Summers as Autumns turn into Springs.

    What we protect - we often don't need.
    What we need - we often don't protect.

    Is this fast enough for you? Is it fast enough for me?
    Can ours undo theirs? Can theirs undo ours?

    Can we undo ourselves fast enough?
