Artist's Description

This burnt out shell of a building was found in the middle of a game reserve. The building was burnt in a few rooms and all that remains is the bathroom, cracked paint and some rude drawings done by vagrants and bothered kids… It was kinda creepy….

They tried rebuilding but got no further,abandoning ships, probably in a state of erriness an boredom all the same…

The picture reminded me of the song by the Shins

Caring is Creepy

I think I’ll go home and mull this over
Before I cram it down my throat
At long last it’s crashed, its colossal mass
Has broken up into bits in my moat.

Lift the mattress off the floor
Walk the cramps off
Go meander in the cold
Hail to your dark skin
Hiding the fact you’re dead again
Undeneath the power lines seeking shade
Far above our heads are the icy heights that contain all reason

It’s a luscious mix of words and tricks
That let us bet when you know we should’ve folded
On rocks i dreamt of where we’d stepped
And the whole mess of roads we’re now on.

Hold your glass up, hold it in
Never betray the way you’ve always known it is.
One day I’ll be wondering how
I got so old just wondering how
I never got cold wearing nothing in the snow.

This is way beyond my remote concern
Of being condescending

All these squawking birds won’t quit.
Building nothing, laying bricks.
