The Dealer


The song for week 24 comes with many layers. While it very obviously addresses the topic of addictions, it also stresses issues such as escapism in times of internet and algorithms. Furthermore, this title also reflects on how it sometimes happens that people know you well enough to manipulate you into doing what they want.

"I have a friend,
he still exists somewhere in that war torn vessel.
Sometimes his ghost comes forth
from the back of his mind and I glimpse his smile."

(From "I Know His Ghost" - A poem)
