The words I suffer take everything I need… Song 361

Only five more songs to go to finish this project! Today’s song took me a little longer than usual to finish, but I really love how it turned out. There’s a synth part in it that I ran through guitar effects. It makes it sound really aggressive, but at the same time, ethereal. The melody to this song sounds somewhat familiar to me, but I can’t figure out what it’s reminding me of. It sounds like a psychedelic indie rock kind of song.

Song 361: “Not Beaten”

Sirens calling out to me
The words I suffer take everything I need

The gold I wished away while being fooled
Gave me nothing but time
To fade away

Those needles piercing memories
Bursting my balloons with a wound

The pain I tried to save hid inside me
Tried to trick me into feeling
Something I never had

I walk alone with the wind at my back
I walk alone with the wind at my back
Still not beaten

The pain I tried to save hid inside me
Tried to trick me into feeling
Something I never had

Still not beaten
