Liner Notes: 

This was not the song I thought I was going to write this morning, but here it is.

Lyrics: 

We’re on shaky ground
There are cracks in our foundation
Will our grand experiment
Implode and die away

We all wander ‘round
Without our moral compass
Too afraid of fellow travelers
To ask someone the way

Look me in the eyes
And tell me if you are afraid
I am terrified
Not sure how to face these days
When hate is on the rise

We say our hands are bound
Thought it couldn’t happen here
Atrocities committed
All in freedom’s name

Look me in the eyes
And tell me if you are afraid
I am terrified
Not sure how to face these days
When hate is on the rise



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

very lovely music makes me believe in the reality of the song. it is a forlorn loveliness born of sadness and disappointment with humanity, yet there is optimism within or you woudnt have written it,

powerful and effective- this really channels that feeling that many have these days. excellent write and performance.
as for the subject, hang in there, if enough of us stay motivated, at least some of the current insanity will get reversed, tho its gonna take time, sadly.

I think this crap is on a lot of peoples' minds and sometimes that's just what comes out. It's a scary time to be alive and you convey that well, while managing to sound somewhat comforting with it; like we're in it together type thing. Nicely done.

You just keep getting better. Youve found your space now. Unfortunately your lyrics tell an all too true tale

lovely tender music, beautiful guitar chords and tone - all works well with the lyrics re fear... sad times in many ways with this rise in hate it seems... those last words of the verses are especially beautiful. nice work
