Countless Questions (1000 Radios part 1)


("Radio Station from the German Federal Archive" by Unknown Author)




1000 Radios is a two-part piece which explores the relationship between an individual and their reality, a subject and their objective world.

The first part, "Countless Questions," illustrates the evolution of the thought processes of the individual who, immersed in an overwhelming and chaotic world oversaturated with information, vacillates between confusion and clarity.


There’s a thousand radios playing in my mind – Radio’s
And I can’t tell which wave is mine – Wave
Should I turn them off if they have me bound? – Bound
Or were they meant to make me sound? – Sound

A thousand pictures moving in my head – Moving
Remains of stories unsaid – Stories
Should I paint them all for you to see – You
Or were they meant just for me? – Meant, just for me

There’s a billion providers with access to my mind
Uploading the reflections of futures left behind
Should I deny the requests? Could they set me free?
Disconnect them once again or let them alter me?

Radio why are you here, why do you play for me?
Is there something I should see?
Provider it isn’t clear, what do you want from me?
Show the place for me to be

Flow through my eyes, the dreams of another
Flood in my mind, the views of another
Flow through my eyes, the needs of another
Throughout my life, our lives altogether

Countless questions behind those eyes
Burning while I analyse
The design of the line between the world and I
An existence to justify

Too many references enfolded in my head
Who’s to blame for silences? Who’s to blame for what is said?
Redirect me into truth, I’ll strive with all my might
The path is clear yet undefined and there’s no end in sight

Radio why are you here, why do you play for me?
Is there something I should see?
Provider it isn’t clear, what do you want from me?
Show the place for me to be

Flow through my eyes, the dreams of another
Flood in my mind, the views of another
Flow through my eyes, the needs of another
Throughout my life, our lives altogether
