about

Recorded in one take, with Audacity, self-recorded.

Written in January 2015

It's a song about someone I believed was my soulmate, but there was a lot of confusing things that happened, and confusing results. And it hurt. A lot.
Whether or not they meant to hurt me, I was semi-traumatized by certain experiences. I have no hate for this person, and life is pain. Love is pain. And sometimes when you have pain, you write painful lyrics, angry lyrics, but this song does not encompass the true scale of emotions I have for this person. It's possible no song ever will. I've written all kinds of happy and sad lyrics for this person, it just turns out that this became a song first.

lyrics

You're just a kid,
pretending to fit in,
Your head's too big,
your ears too small
That's why you can't hear or recall

How you scarred me
In the blinding light
Now when I hear jazz
flash back to my fright
To the window
with the sun
Drowning out my sight
But daylight's just begun

Eyes roll back into my head
It hurts
Please stop
Make it end I said

And my eyes roll back into my head
It hurts
Please stop
Make it end I said

But you did not hear
And you did not care
Did not fear
The blood spilled then and there

But you did not hear
And you did not care
Did not fear
The blood spilled then and there

Blood red like berries
I eat now to keep me calm
Berries, like the cherry
That you touched
With your palms

Drink up his blood
To
Make up for mine
Cuz his psalms won't save you from
Hell's grapevine

Drink up his blood
To
Make up for mine
Cuz his psalms won't save you from
Hell's grapevine

I know
Cuz I'm haunted by the holy ghost
I feel her fingers
when she reaches
to my throat

And my eyes roll back into my head
It hurts
Please stop
Make it end I said

And my eyes roll back into my head
It hurts
Please stop
Make it end I said

But you did not hear
And you did not care
Did not fear
The blood spilled then and there

But you did not hear
And you did not care
Did not fear
The blood spilled then and there!

Run away, run away, run away, run away
From me!
Run away, run away, run away, run away
From me!
Run away, run away, run away,
From me!
Run away, run away, run away,
From the... beast.
