Walter Benjamin At The Border

from American Virus by Dead Ending

/

lyrics

I can’t find my place
Sitting around in a future unmade
There’s no sign of grace
No peace
Forgiveness
And maybe
It’s just the start of a thousand-year long night
I can’t see the stars
I can’t see the light
There’s nothing above
And there’s no God.

Walter Benjamin
After a life of writing
And thinking
And hoping
for something better

Made his way from
Frankfurt
To Paris
Until the Nazis took it

And then to the Spanish border
Where he killed himself
Thirty feet from the fence.
Because he thought:
It would never end.
