Made up of words invented by Shakespeare

Resolve is made up of re (to do again), and solve (to effectively answer a problem)

When you’re bumping your gut along the lonely howl of quarantine

It’s easy to think this state is fixture – an existence established

Nah, let the resolve embrace you

Yes, we have to solve the same evils, over and over again

With them always showing up pretending to be something different, someone new

Don’t be fooled

Re solve your hesitation, re solve your uncertainty, re solve your chagrin

This kinda devil you know how to answer to

Start with the questions

Dawn the undressing of society’s luggage

There’s no traveling today

We’ve got homes to build

We’ve got economies to metamorphize

And ecosystems



Noiselessly radiant

Securely generous

Their invitation unappeased
