about

This weeks tune came together in a very unplanned, copy and paste kind of way. As in, to figure out what came next I just doodled. Same story with the lyric, which seems to be about depression, life, death and love. Maybe.

lyrics

Don’t ask me to talk,
Don’t ask me to understand,
Don’t ask me to forgive you,
For cutting me off.
Don’t ask me to separate,
Don’t ask me to explain,
Don’t ask me to pretend,
Don’t ask me to blame.

I am ruled by confusion,
The silence kills me,
The hurt that’s inside me,
Consumes me.

I dial the number,
In my head,
But I always wake up,
Before they pick up.
Feeling just like a child now,
Way back when,
Thoughts were my company,
Friends were too good to me.

Divide and conquer,
Rise and fall,
She builds an empire,
And I walk.

Chose where to step next,
Choose right or wrong,
Words building walls,
Your words in my wall.

You’re not walking,
You’re running away,
You’re not living, you’re dying, you’re lying,
That’s what they all say.

Don’t ask me to prove it,
Don’t waste your time,
Come hell or high water,
You’ll be fine.
We are changing,
In the same way.

Divide and conquer,
Rise and fall,
She builds an empire,
And I walk.
I walk.

Don’t ask me to prove it,
Don’t waste your time,
Come hell or high water,
You’ll be fine.
You’ll be living.

You’re not walking,
You’re running away,
You’re not living, you’re dying, you’re lying,
That’s what they all say.
