Background music. It all fades into background music. It just becomes sound and nothing more. It plays in the background and we go about doing what we are doing without really paying any attention to it; like when we are at the grocery store and we hear music playing. We hear it but we don’t hear it. Songs pass and we can’t even remember what we listened to. It becomes a massive shape of gray, undistinguishable really. Sometimes we don’t even notice it at all. It just plays lazily in the distance, blending together with the paint on the walls and the ceiling tile. There was a time when the melody was bright and we knew and sang all the words. Now, we don’t pay attention, we’ve heard it all before.
