Still working on the vocal melody but wanted to make a quick demo. I also think I recorded at a lower bpm than I should've, but I will have to hear it when I add drums and stuff later on. It's a weird hybrid genre blend inspired by blues, classic rock, ska, and reggae.
Were you ever going to be who you want to be?
Could you ever allow yourself to change?
No wiggle room, getting claustrophobic
No one else is freaking out, don’t you find it strange?
Hold all your lies underneath your tongue
When your mouth fills with blood, it gets harder to keep down
Takes everything to keep your mouth closed
Soon you’ll forget what even injured you anyhow
I stubbed my toe on a claymore
Now confetti’s bursting out of my limbs
I didn't even want them anymore
More excuse not to go to the gym
Blessed with bad foresight I’m trying to stay clean
The scariest parts are the moments of clarity
Trying to lift this weight off your corpse
Kind moments with increasing rarity
Rest my eyes for just a second
Suddenly in a different time frame
Never wanted an exit from my judgment
Like a wild creature doesn't want to be tamed
I tripped over a tripwire
Didn’t set it off, but I broke a couple bones
Surveillance cameras laughing in my face
I can’t even limp away as they send their armed drones
