unmeaningful sounds

I started reading Hunter S. Thompson’s Hell’s Angels this morning and I was faced with these lines

In my own country

I am in a far off land

I am strong yet have

No force or power

I win yet remain a loser

At break of day I say goodnight

When I lie down I have a great fear of falling

— François Villion

I read them loud again and again, I read them till the words merged together into unmeaningful sounds,  only then I left my flat and went to work.
