The terror, that’s what I love about this.
Scaring the shit out of thousands
by simply leaking some brutal idea, for cutting
…let’s stop there, at cutting, at the thought of cutting
as Galileo was simply shown the instruments.
And knowing we would do it
in a heartbeat, in one strong heartbeat,
there, we will cut.
