Floats describes a state in which the entire existence turns into anticipation. A cynical look at figures moving in a repetitive manner as a sort of pendulum which reflects the passing of time and the cyclicality in which they are in. The figures are constantly moving, however they are not advancing anywhere. An irritating, despairing cycle; a growing anticipation; perhaps what they are waiting for will never happen?
