Trash 04:06
That was life back with the houses That was life back with the cars Where we thought everything's roses Where we thought everything's ours There's no light until a darkness surrounds us There's no right until a wrong gets too large We're on fire until the water rises We're all lost until the flow of blood clots I want to live in the trash I want to live in the garbage I want to live in the filth Bury me in a landfill Cause trash lasts forever I want to sail to trash island Plant a flag and call it heaven Build a house made of plastic Where I'll live and I'll keep all my secrets


Trash, like beauty, is in the eye of the disposer. One persons trash is another ones treasure, be it an object, an experience, or even a person. Belaver’s “Trash" tells the story of embracing despair and shifting perspectives to see the beauty and find peace in trash situations.
