forever-childish:

The secret track hidden in the script on becausetheinter.net was discovered by /u/peepsie112 on reddit. Here is the post describing how they found it. The hidden file was an acapella that lined up with the last track on K A U A I. It was confirmed by a tweet from Childish Gambino.

What is it now that awakens me?
And all of this is in my head
Oh my god
Oh my god
All my life is sin…”

(I’m not here right now)

"It’s not in the open fields or in large gardens that I see spring arrive. It’s in the several scrawny trees of a small city square. There the greenness stands out like a special gift and is joyful like a warm sorrow.
I love these lonely squares, tucked between streets with little traffic, and themselves with just as little. They are useless clearings, aways there waiting, in between forgotten tumults. They’re a bit of village in the city.
I come to a square, walk up one of the streets that runts into it, then back down the same street. Seen from the other direction, the square is different, but the same peace gilds with sudden nostalgia - the setting sun - the view I didn’t see when I walked up the street.

Everything is useless, and I feel it as such. All that I’ve lived I’ve forgotten, as if I’d only vaguely heard it. All that I’ll be reminds me of nothing, as if I’d lived and forgotten it.
A sunset of mild sorrow hovers all around me. Everything turns chilly, not because it’s colder, but because I’ve entered a narrow street and the square is gone.

Walking from the side (II)

Struggling to place the terminology of exactly what I’ve been feeling lately. Some sort of continuous existential discomfort. I feel one level detached from the social conscious, and I’m adrift. It’s alright.
