Basement Hum

from Austere and Lonely Offices by Harborer



a song i wrote about the room i am usually in, and the brain i am usually in. the sounds you hear throughout are the ambient noises i hear usually whilst going to sleep. maybe, in that way, you can interpret this song as being a dream! though, that implies you aren't already in one...


all this time i've spent underground
i forgot what the light looked like
all this time i've spent in my head
i forgot what you look like

was it something i said
something i wanted to
it's what you said
it's what you meant to do

halloween treats or anything sweet
don't excite me much anymore
reaching out from these paneled walls
the cries of yet another soul

it's what i meant
it's what i wanted to do
it's what you said
it's what you wanted to
it's what i want
it's what i can't explain
it's just real life
i've nothing left to say

longing for a fraction of a feeling
a connection of any sort
the hum of this room goes on with no end
i jump when i hear the door

what have i said
that others haven't yet
it's what we need
it's what we really want
it's what you know
it's what i tried to do
it's what you know
it's what i tried to do
