about

This is a song with some words about frustration with the world and other such topics commonly written about. I consider this one of my best pieces to date, and worked about 3 weeks on it altogether, and I think this is probably as good as it can be without spending some money on professionals and a recording studio.

The pages in my notebook that progressed into this along with guitar and bass tabs can be found on my tumblr: theunderwritten.tumblr.com/post/136030021803/how-i-wrote-my-latest-song-not-yet-released-but

Toil in the fields all day
Where you raised your hands to say

The soil's run dry
In the place set aside, for you

Teach your son to walk in your footsteps
No rest, no rest, no rest, not even death
Work your hands to the bone, and then to dust
It won't be enough, Never was enough
You're breaking my legs so I can't run away
Behold, the way, you look in my eyes

Grabbing my throat so I can't even breathe
See your reflection, in my pooled blood
Sleep in your bed tightly anyway
Just stay in your dream don't wait for me

We grew you up
Don't care what you've done
YOU CAN'T ESCAPE THIS
You're one of us, now
One of us, One of us, One of us, now
You can't escape this
Can't escape
Can't escape
