This world becomes unreal as night turns to day… Song 241

125 songs to go. Two more pages in this notebook. Two more songs to write until I crack open a fresh one. I feel like this project has been going very well overall. I think it’s gone more smoothly than the one from 2014. Not nearly as many issues or as much stress this time around. I can’t wait to get it done and make an album. A digital, CD and vinyl version of the very best of this year. All tidy and tied up with a bow. But I’ve still got a ways to go. So, one foot in front of the other until I get where I’m going.

Song 241: “Breathe”

Shaken out of slumber
Voices call my name behind the walls

Breathe in, breathe out
Drink the voices in
Innocent, innocent
Screaming in my ears

Safe behind your blood-shot eyes
A mystery calls the dead to life

Backward voices point the way
This world becomes unreal as night turns to day

Breathe in, breathe out
Drink the voices in
Innocent, innocent
Screaming in my ears

Shadow bodies fade away
A one-track mind in an uncracked safe

Breathe in, breathe out
Breathe in
