what do you think they'd do if they were playing this song live and, right before moving up the octave near the end, the pianist played a really awful, off-key note that totally ruined the mood? i imagine they'd all sigh internally, make a mental note to scold the pianist later, and keep playing the song with uncharacteristically pissed-off looks on their faces.
"I wished there was some way for us to go back and undo the past. But there wasn't. There was nothing we could do. So I just stayed silent and trying to telepathically communicate how sorry I was about what had happened. And I thought of all the grief and sadness and fucked up suffering in the world, and it made me want to escape. I wished with all my heart that we could just leave this world behind. Rise like two angels in the night and magically disappear."
