about

This is the first song I wrote back in late 2014 after having years of writers block. Life had taken it's toll and I wasn't feeling well for awhile. I kicked everyone out of the band and wrote this as a way to explain my behavior for the past few years and to apologize for neglecting my friendships.

This is the first song I wrote back in late 2014 after having years of writers block. Life had taken it's toll and I wasn't feeling well for awhile. I kicked everyone out of the band and wrote this as a way to explain my behavior for the past few years and to apologize for neglecting my friendships.




when i was a kid i was so happy, things were great
i had some friends, i was outgoing, now things have changed
i still have some friends but i tend to never go out
there never is a valid reason to leave my house

you know i know that i've dug my own hole
you know i know you know i won't quit until it's full
i'll never know when it ends or where it goes
maybe you can tell me how the story unfolds

i'll never have a problem never leaving my room if it means i'll never hear from the likes of you
i will always remember how i got this way, it's not the fact that i'm sad, no, i'm not afraid
the reasons i'm depressed are problems all of my own, the only drinks i ever take are shots of being alone
i can't help but think this is no longer my home

i've always been an honest man but never true to myself
these past few years have really been hard hating everyone else
the faults i've made, you know i'm so sorry, i never meant to hurt you
the walls that i build all around me is just a thing that i do

you know i know that i've dug my own hole
you know i know you know i can't quit until it's full
i may never know when it ends or where it goes
i've made my peace and now the story can be told

so climb aboard this ride there is so much to see and watch it burn and fade out into misery
i may have trapped myself within these four walls, is it insanity to write all of this on a bathroom stall?
i wasn't always like this but i'll never swear that i never missed the memories and i didn't care
but it's for when the heart breaks, i could never prepare
