0350902020 Watching you slowly drown

Liner Notes: 

I think my songs are going to be inspired by some aspects of Michael Chrichtons sci-fi philosophies, just watched Westworld for the first time and it reallty messed me up.

At the same time, I have a terminal mom, and she sometimes say stuff like 'Am I here?'. Scary and sad but could be inspiration for further songwriting.

Lyrics: 

What you find is just an other parallel
in time triggered by what you meet
And you can walk and think you have a free will
And end up the same place right at your feet

And I’ve been watching you slowly drown
And what it meant for you to save your crown
And I’ve been watching you in a fight
Convincing yourself you were right

What you find is just an other doll face
Who talk and walk in a familiar way
And you will find your path before the outbreak
Just in time before you engage

And I’ve been watching you slowly drown
And what it meant for you to save your crown
And I’ve been watching you in a fight
Convincing yourself you were right

Life goes round in circles
Untill circumstances take it away
The path is inevitably universal
Untill that very day



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

I like that open string sound.

I hope you're traversing what you are in the best way possible.

Nice sound!

Crichton fan here (because I'm OLD!). Read Westworld when it first came out and I enjoyed that original movie. Also enjoyed the first couple of seasons of the HBO take, but this last season I had trouble following. Condolences regarding your mother--mine is 93 and still alive, but in a home and not enjoying the pandemic and the fact that none of her children can visit. Again...enjoying your song. I do like your voice. This is a real nice moody melody! Good work!

Love the lyrics that has such a powerful message: the image the crown and drowning creates: fighting and winning(and it is not the time to win that fight) This song can mean a lot for many ppl going through the same journey. You have a good voice and stage presence

Heart-breaking. That line "watching you slowly drown" is really powerful and makes me feel helpless.

Also the lines about free will are interesting. Always gets my thoughts running. What can we really control?

Sorry for all the comparisons, but I'm getting real Mumford & Sons feel. The vocals are so great. You have an incredible voice!
