Fractional: Just Fix This (still unfinished)

by Richard Paez

Proceeding by sevenths and thirds,
fractional steps, striving for a unified {undefined} goal
musical notation and points of reference
impending crescendos {given to fugue}
always overstepping {and undercutting}
percentages and decimals
that never satisfy {yet always remind}:
remainders never add up to anything {whole}

Still we push and we pull
{consume and disgorge}
(Please just fix this,
please just fix this)
Still we push and we pull
{consume and disgorge}
(Please just fix this,
god just fix this)

What came of those times
when I knew your name?
(and would I know now
if I saw you?)

Melodic disharmony, division,
fractional distillations come down
to a single point of reference
(Will anyone love you as I did?)
(and you think you know discordance,
you think you know wreckage)
{but all you ever knew was me –
all you’ll ever know is me}

So please just fix this (fucking fix this)
‘cause all it comes down to
is a single point of reference
(and you don’t know wreckage)
