FAVORITE LYRIC:

Jon Marc:

Well, I looked me demons in the Eyes

laid bare my chest, said ‘Do your best to, destroy me.

You see, I’ve been to hell and back so many times,

I must admit you kind of bore me.”

There’s a lot of things that can kill a man

there’s so many ways to die

Yes, and some already dead and walk beside me

There’s a lot of things I don’t understand

Why so many people lie

Well, it’s the hurt I hide that fuels the fire inside me…

Ray LaMontagne – “Empty”

Jacob:

I see an elevator, a moment I am above,
I look for you or someone who can still remind me of the tight grip

And the sun lick and the calm weight of all things summer
when it’s all here and it’s all new
and you’re not hungover

If you’ve still got some light in you then go before it’s gone
Burn your fire for no witness, it’s the only way it’s done
Fierce and light and young
Hit the ground and run…

Angel Olsen – “White Fire”

I WROTE THIS SONG BECAUSE… It’s about how people change over time and their obsession over the past. Fear of the known and unknown.
