Identity 04:01
She’s taken my imaginary friend and I’m upset I think I think. Things get more complex, it’s a trend I hope that I can grasp before I sink. He’s left me for my spirit guide I now doubt things I know I know are real. Keep calm. I won’t hide my disappointment, everybody goes How can he leave with the boy who isn’t here? How can he love the girl who can’t exist in this or any other world? He’s run off with two characters I wrote short stories for so long so long ago. I think one left me notes in margins but I may be wrong I never worked them out anyway. My other other self has gone a partial person ought to stay forever – so I thought, turns out I’m wrong How can she leave with the boy who isn’t here? How can she love the girl who can’t exist in this or any other world? Where have they gone? Where am I now? There is so little of me left to show and once I would have fought but these days I am caught There are more people here than you and me, though none agree what’s real is real. There should be someone I can be to keep the gang together. Seal all the doors and count my shadows. There’s more and more of them abscond. I need to be the one who’s quite certain where his fragments are tonight What have they done? What can I do? They think that I’m imaginary too and once I would have argued but recently I’m not so sure


Who are you? Are you the same person all the time? Or do you swap and change according to who you’re with? Do you have facets you’d like to see the back of? Are there versions of you you’d like to get back? Who are you? Who am I? Listen to this intensive, fierce postpunk song with references of 80s industrial and new wave … and maybe find out.
