Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

a song about hearing weird noises at night and getting paranoid. anyone who lives in an old house can probably relate

Lyrics: 

The sound of a car door slamming out on the street
I wouldn’t have even noticed, but there was another sound simultaneously
It was sort of a loud banging sound downstairs
My first thought was “someone’s at the door”
my second thought “who cares”

I’m safe
inside my house
Am I safe
Inside my house?

My third thought struck me suddenly,
shattering my false sense of security.
What if someone’s breaking in, what if they try to kill me?
I have no way to defend myself, I’m a sitting duck, I’m doomed
All I can do is sit here cowering inside my room

Am I safe
Inside my house
Am I safe
Inside my house?
Is anyone safe?
We’re all just hiding out
No one’s safe
Everyone is hiding now,
hiding from something



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

You've hit the sweet spot for me with those guitars. It all sounds so good. I love the progression of the lyric: first thought, second, third. Yeah, ain't that how it goes

This has a sound that takes me back to when I first started listening indie/alt.
Cool lyrics with a unique subject matter, and something I can totally relate to. I've always been sort of a scaredy-cat when it comes to house noises.
Dig the crunch of the guitars at the crescendos.
Great concept.
