about

One of my proudest compositions. I don't know how, but the song sort of wrote itself. I picked up my guitar on a rainy summer evening in 2010. An hour later the whole thing was written, including lyrics. 8 years go by and I finally recorded it.

Artwork adapted from "Musei Wormiani Historia", by 17th century Danish physician/historian Ole Worm.

lyrics

Does your wish that you wish you done drive yourself mad?
Does your push that you push to shove wonder what you could of had?
Do you hear your sharpened tongue? Your pregnant with doubt
Clean your ears, bang your drum and laugh about it, yeah
Does it make you kill your tone, or bite your pitch?
Does it make you feel alone, with no one to miss?
Is it bliss? Or bated breath
Blew your chance now you’re feeling blue
Ain’t such a drag?
Stressed is your mind, yeah mind your stress at what you could have had
To give it a rest is slim to none, you barely hang on
Clean your ears, sing my song and laugh about it, yeah
Does it make you kill your tone, or bite your pitch?
Does it make you feel alone, with no one to miss?
Is it bliss? Or bated breath
We could live without it and sing the same old song
We could live without it, now give it all night long
We could live without it, in and out and in
We could live without it, in and out and in and out and in
