My son was three months old, looked like a concentration camp inmate (so thin was he) and I did regular walks with him in Prater, so that he can sleep and grow.

On one such walk, the daily life weighed heavily on me. It was shortly after I heard Karel Makoň talk about the roles of God: Father who creates, pushing everything from himself to the world; son, who saves, pulling everything from the world back to himself; holy spirit, who enlightens, making any insight possible. These three simultaneous God's acts make the world with its dynamics possible.

The imagination of a world where these founding principles vanish seemed so crazy, absurd, and untold sad, that I decided to linger in it just long enough to capture the mood into a nihilistic song.

Lyrics

We're alone. No place to charge the power, no time to stand the hour. We're alone. We're alone. No power to commit sins. No power ever since we're alone. The father's tired of creation, the son is sick of salvation, the spirit lost the light. We're alone. No moral in this song. An eternity long, we're alone. We would cry so loud that God would hear. But sorry, he's not here. We're alone. The father's tired of creation, the son is sick of salvation, the spirit lost the light. You're alone. There's noone you could bore. No one who could ignore that you're alone. We're alone. And I keep asking why we must still wait to die all alone. The father's tired of creation, the son is sick of salvation, the spirit lost the light. The world is like corpse of a dog in decay and turning to nothing but too long, too late, an agony without a hope of an end Cause father's tired of creation, the son is sick of salvation, the spirit lost the light.
