It is not what they built. It is what they knocked down.
It is not the houses. It is the spaces between the houses.

'I didn't exist at Creation
I didn't exist at the Flood,
And I won't be around for Salvation

In soteriological terms
I'm a crude existential malpractice
And you are a diet of worms.'
