Momentum – The Cage

Audio Below

This is the final song I contributed during the Tireless Effort sessions six years ago. There are some awkward lyrical choices, but I think it came out with an interesting sound and personality. I provide much of the rhythm guitar and vocals. My cousin, Zack, does the second verse though. He also composed all the instrumentation outside of the basic chords and rhythmic skeleton for the song.

I originally envisioned this track as a more Failuresque outing, but my cousin’s contributions altered the general vibe and atmosphere. It comes through much more lush and breezy than I had once imagined.

I had more songs, but we only had time to record three of mine out of the ten total on the album. I later spent time with a friend I hadn’t seen in a long time, then returned back to base. Time passed I no longer was able to be part of the project, but there may still be some of those albums spread out there somewhere. It was a fun time and something I hope to do on my own some point in the future.

If you enjoy this, please like or comment.

Here I am facing portraits on the wall
A moment of great despair I recognize no one at all
Where do these people come from I wish they’d disappear
Gripping social anxiety causing me all this fear

The loneliest place in the world can be your mind
Serenity is long gone and peace is hard to find
I’ve held myself back long enough I want to break free
I just want to make it in life just being me

Zack:
Though I’ve been released from this cage
My mind has been withered away
Now every waking moment of my life is suffocation
The more I struggle the more I feel life’s domination

The loneliest place in the world can be your mind
Serenity is long gone and peace is hard to find
I’ve held myself back long enough I want to break free
I just want to make it in life just being me

Interlude

Outro
The loneliest place in the world can be your mind
