Find Yourself

about

this one's kind of an attempt at being wackier and trying to put more unconventional noises into a more conventional song. it started out as more of a self-explanatory acoustic guitar folk song, but through recording it it morphed into this weird psychedelic sort of thing. i think it came out pretty well, and i learned a lot of interesting things recording it that i can put to use in the future! i wrote it in july 2020 so it's quite nice that this one's coming out almost exactly a year after it first came into existence.

lyrics

you lie and sigh in a rotten bed
reflections pulsing through your head
once they're gone you're hoping it's all over
you find yourself in an unknown place
where everyone shows the same face
is this where you'll be when you get older

your friends have beat you in the race
you're stuck inside a finite maze
you can't turn back, the only way is forward
the walls are too high so you can't see
how they live successfully
you jump and jump but there's no getting over

find yourself a new song
hopefully it's not too long
before you're in a hole
all you've thought and all you've done is wasted now on everyone
there's no escape save for the end
there's no such thing as innocence

you think about a year that's passed
you wondered how you'd ever last
the years go by but they don't get any slower
your peers can hear but they don't retain
the information that keeps you sane
your mother's long forgotten what you've told her

on a bed you sense the end
a door creaks open from within
your only fear is being mediocre
all the places you'll never see
all the people you'd rather be
you find it difficult to keep composure

find yourself a new fate
hopefully it's not too late
before you're in the ground
your eyes can see you on your bed
your mind can't comprehend you're dead
a certain calmness in the room
but some of us had needed you to live
