Sin And Shame Swirl In Yowler's Darkly Hopeful 'WTFK'

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WEEPN33CjrA There's a myth about self reflection: that it leads to self-love; that gaining an understanding of ourselves always brings peace. Perhaps that's true in the long term. But sometimes when we go looking for ourselves, we don't always like what we find.
