Here’s a new song. I wrote the music first and composed it by cutting up the file in Cubase, and then the lyrics came later. Writing songs on the acoustic always seems to put me in a sort of folk-rock trap, so I’m trying to start by writing the drums first. The song itself seems a little bitter:

Somewhere in the old fading light in the sky
we lose ourselves and settle in for the ride
and all our questions turn into dreams
I may be lost but it’s not lost on me

somewhere there’s an old burnt out light in yr eye
yr selfless shadows helpless watching you die
and I’m still waiting for my dreams to come true
I’m sleeping in what else can I do?

The world’s not made for anybody like me
I’ll hold my ground until they beat me free
so watch yr shadows cause they’re all you got left
what you destroy is what yr living in
