MATTERS

single

“MATTERS” is about knowing your importance and ability to make a change, even though one may seem insignificant in a bigger perspective. it stems from us as independent female artists fighting to be able to exist in our field, but also from us as beings through lows and highs — aiming to encourage ourselves and others to take control when society is rapidly evolving into extremes.

MATTERS

the thin blue line
bends across the fatal sky,
like my back for you.
crushed little fly,
bend the line of hope.

the end is nigh.
rising is a changing time.
drops will hit the soil.
our bells will chime.
feed my hungry jaws.

we matter.
raise our voices,
hum until their walls
shatter.
ah, we
gather.
endless winter leaves us after all,
forever.

hum.

trace through time
figures drawn into border lines.
turn your shout into a storm that cries.
fallow.

we matter.
raise our voices,
hum until their walls shatter.
ah, we
gather.
endless winter leaves us after all,
forever.

hum.

scarify,
fade to grey from catching time.
simple says born hung to dry,
so low.
