"this cassette is worth a full year of my life. some days i rode the train, some days there w ere old men with a woman who loves them at home out to score. some days school children would ride the train while holding hands in a chain. i could hear their voices through my headphones and i would forget about the music for those moments. i only want to thank train strangers for the reality checks they wrote and provided for this, my simple sublimation."
