separated

(curious theories):

- sex at dawn

- alchemy

 

(experience itself):

- sehnsucht

- mono no aware

 

(grand myth):

- pandora

- theft of fire

- hieros gamos

 

(visual metaphor):

(and, the power of):

it's worth it

to keep trying.


the songs:

- brutal (v2.0, 2019)

- i've been an animal (demo, 2019)
