lyrics

I don't want to feel sad
But every time I feel sad
I feel closer later
When I've returned I'm in your favor

But if it lasts too long
It feels like you were always gone
I feel further than ever
And redirect your offer to recover

In these transitions
Of mood
It seems I'm most receptive to you
When I change
I approve
I acknowledge you are present in my deepest senses . . .
But I don't want to meet you only in transition

I don't want to feel pain
But every time I feel pain
I feel comforted and hopeful
When physically returned to normal

But if the suffering stays
And fills every unoccupied space
I feel hurt and deserted
And shield attempts to resuscitate revival

In these transitions
Through pain
It's the easiest connection to maintain
When I hurt
You remain
I acknowledge you are present in my deepest senses . . .
But I don't want to meet you only in transition

It's counter intuitive when I'm impaired
But I acknowledge you are present in my deepest senses . . .
And I don't want to meet you only in transition

The President Series (aka The Reverse Pregnancy Series) is a Maxel Toft project that began in 1999.
Each album represents both a U.S. President and a week of human pregnancy from birth to conception.
Starting with 42 (aka Clinton, aka overdue baby) and continuing in reverse order, all recordings are implicitly named and numbered according to past U.S. Presidents and a week of gestation.
