So, as you may have heard, we are releasing a new 7” soon. We’re not divulging any more information about it yet but, rest assured, you can expect more details and the actual release soon.
In the mean time, I wrote out all the lyrics to the two songs I wrote for the release and explained everything that went into writing them, from lyricism to the instrumentation itself.
I understand that this is a massive wall of text and that may turn some people off; however, for those of you interested in lyrics, songwriting, and what goes on in my head, I think this should say more than enough.
Feel free to send us any comments or questions you may have.
Everything is after the ‘Read More.’
I found these in my jacket pocket this morning
must have been a pretty emo night out last evening.
Song is currently untitled but it’s going to be on one of our upcoming splits. Different compared to our demo songs because I (Raph) don’t play guitar on this one, I only do vocals. Anyway:
"Hands held above our heads, held out as far as they can stretch. I’m trying to hold on to clouds that are always outside my reach. I guess you didn’t notice- I fade with the setting sun. I’m no more alive than the empty home where I grew up.
I find my life is constantly swirling, cliche as it sounds, like leaves in the wind- twirling in unpredictable patterns until the wind slows down and stops again. But leaves crumble under foot and are commonly left to die in the sun- I find myself begging for drops of rain to grace me but I realize that there are none.
And when we planted that tree in your front yard, I remember thinking, “I wish I was still young.” I guess you didn’t notice- I fade with the setting sun.”
Let me/us know what you think. More stuff soon.
