i always used to say
that i could never listen to any music without drums,
because i need a beat that can drive the song through
to understand where it's going.

lately i've been listening to some music
without drums.

you could say that maybe i've grown into a world
where i don't need things to drive me
in order to pay attention.

i think instead if i heard drums too much
it would remind me that not playing them
is killing me too much
to live through.
