dead

sabtu pagi:
di arteri, arus yang biasanya merambat pelan, nyaris berhenti. akhirnya gw liat mayat ditutupi koran, sikunya masih kelihatan. sementara organ dalam terburai berserakan, otak pecah, genangan darah berwarna merah muda, tengkorak tempurung kepala di bawah kaki, jajanan dagangan tercecer sepanjang jalan.

sementara, di deretan belakang, seorang kerabat bergumam ” langsung mlebu sorgo arek iki. mati nyambut gawe. mati ngibadah…”

yang terasa cuma sodokan kecil aja di perut gw.
mungkin, nurani gw mulai terkikis? atau gw yang lama2 terbiasa liat/denger kejadian kaya gini di jakarta?

 

Review: Who We Are

at least today i got something to light up my mood.
it’s lifehouse latest album, who we are.

i am excited as i feel that this album is getting lifehouse back into that style similar to their first album. kickin.

“disarray” offers the opening style, similar with “spin” from their 2nd album. a song about uncertainty, but still with upbeat tempo. there is “broken” a beautiful but poignant lyrics. and to my surprise, i heard jason wade raw and grave voice in “the joke”.

not many of that slow and melodic songs in who we are. apparently, they have decided to explore and experimenting a lot more different sounds in this album but still, with that deeply written lyrics they renowned of.

maybe, it’s going to take me a while to digest the whole list. but so far i’m enjoying it.
