lyrics

the haunted ruins of the past
accumulate with in our lives
and as our words weigh us down
can we learn to speak? I don’t know

see the fields all lit with pyres
illuminate the structures we live by
history can’t be undone
is it too late? I don’t know

I’ll go to the fields and know what stood there are signs of so long ago

- - -

This song is about the witch hunts during the modernization of Europe. It’s about the biopolitical subjugation of women and how we need to reexamine notions like primitive accumulation, state formation, and the enclosing of the commons through a gendered lens.
