Hello everyone. This is a song I've been working on sporadically for nigh on for a year.
I usually think I'm going to have lots to say about songs I create but, actually, I think this one is best left to speak for itself.
It's pretty dense so you may want to download it to get the full effect.


You say my corpse needs opening
Society’s a broken thing
To let the ice age in

You’ve come too far to change your mind
Your country’s dead but that’s alright
You couldn’t make them see

Behind you at the smoking glass
The panic button’s in your grasp
Don’t let it fall away

Stop caring that you’re not alone
They’re watching when you’re on your own
So you don’t turn extreme

Every day is rain
Every day is rain
Every day I step outside
The sky is grey again

Life’s a steady state
Life’s a steady state
And everything you thought might take our lives back from the dirt
Is gonna have to wait

You’ve come too far to change your mind
You’ve come too far to change your mind
Forgotten what you thought you’d find
Forgotten why you’re here
