Liner Notes: 

Wrote this this morning and sent it off to Steven Smile Hopefully something will come of it Smile
I'll be editing this lyric on an ongoing basis Smile

16th Aug:
Steven sent me the SoundCloud link and here it is Smile Love it Smile
I am writing another 8 line verse (as we repeat verse 1 on the track, whereas they were originally 2 verses in the lyric), and making a few more other tweaks... watch this space.
Will adust the lyric below to match the music asap...

Lyrics: 

chorus
I'm holding my fear
An' squeezing so hard
So you can't control
That final card
There's no more black hole
Cus I've learned to be hard
I've learned to be hard

v1
You don't worry me 'cus I'm holding my own power
I'm not scared, an' I won't blow your cover
So you can rest easy
We won't need no referee this time

pre chorus
You can't hold me now
I'm no longer in your hands
I got out, somehow
I no longer hear your demands

chorus
I'm holding my fear
An' squeezing so hard
So you can't control
That final card
There's no more black hole
Cus I've learned to be hard
Yes I've learned to be hard

v2
Now there's nothin' left, in that something we once had
You are gone, an' I don't feel the pain
There's no more black hell-hole
An' I'm free to bury deep the ghost

pre chorus
You can't hold me now
I'm no longer in your hands
I got out, somehow
I no longer hear your demands

chorus
I'm holding my fear
An' squeezing so hard
So you can't control
That final card
There's no more black hole
Cus I've learned to be hard
Yes I've learned to be hard

bridge
Your emotions are barred
I've a wall around my heart
No longer interested
I no longer need a guard

pre chorus
You can't hold me now
I'm no longer in your hands
I got out, somehow
I no longer hear your demands

chorus
I'm holding my fear
An' squeezing so hard
So you can't control
That final card
There's no more black hole
Cus I've learned to be hard
Yes I've learned to be hard

Powerful words that are empowering. I love the image of the black hole disappearing as a metaphor for getting rid of those people or situations that suck the energy out of us. The bridge is strong and the chorus sings quite well. Wonderful job!

Wow! The music is great! The hook really comes alive and the punk feel works really well! Love it! Great marriage of music and lyrics!

Punky. I really like that stuttered guitar. The riff really gets the song going.

Love the pop-punk groove, excellent filtered vocal sound, and love the angsty energy in the vocal too. Great title and the chorus does a great job summing up the story.
