Revisiting KungFuFrijters’ music was an absolute joy. I was particularly drawn to the depth of his words and somewhat monotone (yet subtly emotional) delivery in “Percentages.” My ‘A-Ha!’ Secret Mixter moment came when I thought to slightly adapt his lyrics for a second verse… And so… Here it is. I hope you like it, KungFu. Hope you dig, friends.


WORDS
My world is counted in percentages

Small moments
Waitings

For time to elapse
For me to collapse
Of exhaustion
Of a drained mind
Of a drained spirit

My day is counted in percentages

Counting up time down
Ever elusive
Never-ending

Salivation
And dryness
Explosions of remorse

My day is counted in percentages

26% of 4 files downloaded
52% forgotten memory
76% enjoying the grief of my long-dead father

My day is counted in percentages

Percentages of things I’ve forgotten
Percentages of things that I’ve yet to learn
Percentage of ambient noise
Percentage of letters unread
Percentages of messages unreturned

My day is counted in percentages

My day
Is counted in percentages
My world is counted in percentages

Small moments
Waitings

For time to elapse
For me to collapse
Of exhaustion
Of a drained mind
Of a drained spirit

My day is counted in percentages

Counting down, the time’s up
The slippery slope
Incessant

Hazy
Yet crystal clear
Collapse of contentment

My day is counted in percentages

91% of hard drive full
65% reminiscent
33% severed connection from my long-dead mother

My day is counted in percentages

Percentages of things remembered
Percentages of things long forgot
Percentage of internal sound
Percentage of thank you’s unsaid
Percentages of sorry’s ignored

My day is counted in percentages

11 (12)
36 (37)
52 (42)
86 (68)

My day
Is counted in percentages.
