The seed for these lyrics was something silly a friend posted in our group discord. I enjoy taking innocuous statements—in this case, "I'm always looking to the future"—and seeing where it takes me. This is also my first time trying anything besides a piano under my voice, so any and all critiques or suggestions are welcome.
When you're behind on FAWM, the first take is the best take!
I’m always looking to the future
I see the fire in the sky
Followed your footsteps but you were just a coward
Always running for your life
I need no introductions
We all bed just the same
And I’m a bitter lover
You don’t need to know my name
Keep looking to the future (x4)
Take your children to the desert
And see if rain will find you there
We’re building mountains where
The devil split the waters
And there’s poison in the air
