Spoken word snippets continue to appear throughout, the whole thing is a performance – a short piece of theatre. Every detail has been carefully incorporated.
It’s interesting to hear the two artists – who seem so very different from one another – access the same moment of artistry. This is creativity at its most freely meandering & thoughtful.
The first few moments are perhaps the most striking, the placement of a well known children’s rhyme in such a dark setting really draws your attention & leaves you wondering what led to this.

The lyrics offer a notably poetic string of images, a story that is slightly distant seeming, but that grabs your attention regardless. Certain lines stand out & further the haunting feeling – ‘I come to watch you die’ is a perfectly fitting example.
