When Saints Go Machine, "Parix"



Parix is depicted teenage procrastination. Whatever direction you move it hurts. And you ask yourself: Why am I here fucking up my life so crucially? Why can’t I do what’s best for me? Your mind is floating, but you’re caught and afraid of going anywhere. When you have a gigantic load upon your shoulders, the easiest thing is to just stand still. The stillness makes you drift. And, sometimes the stream guides you in the right direction.
