Lyrics and Explanations to 2 New Songs

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.’

Thanks,
Raphael

New Song Lyrics

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.
