Objective

Watch “Monophobia” by DEADMAU5 (optional as the genre may not be preferred by all)

Respond to the following lyrics:

Inside my head, there’s a little place left for you
What do you know?
What do you know?
And all I want is to find out what you’re going through
What do I know?
Maybe this silence is dangerous

Inside my head, there’s a little place left for you
What do you know?
What do you know?

And feel what’s inside you
I wanna come over
And see what you’ve found
See if you’re hurting
After tearing me down
It’s the rain of denial

It’s the way that you’re faking
All the tears in your eyes
Feel like I’m in slow motion
Tonight

And all I want is to find out what you’re going through
What do I know?
Maybe this silence is dangerous

I wanted to hide
Now, I just wanna find you
And feel what’s inside you
I wanna come over
And see what you’ve found
See if you’re hurting
After tearing me down
It’s the rain of denial

  1. Ugh! This is the absolute worst song to hear right now. The lyrics are exactly where I’m at after ending a 2 year relationship. I feel lost heartbroken and wonder how they’re doing. I want to talk to them which I can do but mostly I just want what we had back. I’ve also been having a huge existential crisis. I just want to quit writing. That’s really all I want to do. Quit and find something that I can do well and enjoy. I feel like one of those party casualties dancing in the video, a metaphor for my writing life only, at least, they seem like they’re having fun.

    1. I’m so sorry you’re going through this. It’s strange grieving the lost relationship of someone who is still alive.

    2. If I may interject a defense of the innocent:

      “Casualties”, they are, in some way, sure. But their body language, to me, reads like they’re fully committed to the moment, full-heartedly invested in the raw, personal expression they’re exuding, not merely having fun. Nothing dances like that that doesn’t want to. Plus,in their defense, no (capital P) Party could stand on its own without at least a few such “casualties”, or rather, “Pillars-of-circumstance-in-casualty-costume” – necessary components of a healthy, worthwhile Party.

  2. Lately, I’ve been focusing on my relationship with myself and this sounds like a very familiar conversation we have. I often miss myself deeply.

  3. Welcome back! Everything is still here with me. I mean, I’m here in this place, and now you’re here with me. Well, you remember my place. It’s all just my stuff, don’t worry. And I’m fine. Okay, okay. I’ve kept a few extra things laying around that kind of remind me of you, but it’s fine! I’m here with all my friends, have they introduced themselves to you yet? They started rolling in after you left, and we’ve been talking a lot about what happened. We all decided that I’m going to be fine if I just keep pushin’ on and don’t worry about what anyone else thinks of us. And the rest of us will be here to keep me company if I ever start to feel lonely, so you don’t have to worry about that either.

    I must admit, I have been thinking about you a little bit. I know what you said, but the memories of you have been helping me cope with all of this, so I don’t come apart at the seams and spew all the different colors of myself all over the walls of this old estate. Could you imagine!? You remember my old place, right? Did I mention I am having some house guests? But don’t worry, they’ll be no bother. They’re only interested in takin’ a load off and keeping the beat going. I asked the elderly gentleman with the unicorn horn about their presence and he politely spelled out “PROLIFERATE” with some delightfully colorful cubes on the pool deck. Now, I’m no genius, but I know what a suffix is and I’m certainly not foolish enough to misconstrue the combination of “PRO”, “LIFE”, and “RATE”. So I’ve taken a more relaxed open door policy regarding the matter.

    By the way, why have you stopped over?

  4. Monophobia, defined as, the fear of a singular perspective, being regarded as single-minded, fear of seeing the world through only one, single perspective, through the self, fear of existential entrapment inside one’s own mind/self. Imagine what this must do to a person?
