Why do we like this?

If one extricates oneself from thought and form and rests as awareness, it becomes a little clearer that there's this small realm we call the self. In said realm, we have our neuroses, limitations, and foibles...all of which, cannot be leapt over; earnest as we may be to find a jetpack and do so.

Sakawa Boys' "Out of the Darkness" is not only an alt-rock sound that takes up its own lane, but the lyrics contemplate the human dilemma of being stuck with one's self.

With lyrics such as: "I lie awake with myself," "I reach my hand out / Swipe at nothing," and "These things I did that can't be undone / I can't retract I can't rewind" the lyricist points to our shared situation.

As one sees in mediation, change is continuous and at the same time gradual, in short: we're stuck with ourselves. All that's left to do is to observe, and as the band so beautifully sings: "I surrender / I'm surrendered up."
