about

This song was called “My Despair” for a few months and it basically chronicles my depression as it sneaks up on me. This is what used to cause me to drink and now I have to deal with it. I’ve done a lot of work with a type of therapy called EMDR and Voice Dialogue. In these treatments, you actually learn to identify parts of your inner psyche and the roles they play. In my head, there are countless characters that push me to “keep busy” rather than be in the moment. Two of these get mentioned here (the doctor, the general) and how I wish they would leave me alone and let me present. Meditation helps, I do that now too.

lyrics

When a far off gaze gets overcome with shadows
The sprinkling always takes me by surprise
Is there somewhere I can find to take cover
Before the clouds cover the sunrise

Just go, leave me behind
Just go, let me unwind

When he notices, the general starts giving orders
And the doctor starts to analyze
Together they’ll find something to occupy me
When I only want to close my eyes

Just go, leave me behind
Just go, let me unwind
Just go, leave me behind
Just go, let me unwind

To keep me busy they push me to fight after fight after fight
It doesn’t matter if I’m even right, even right, even right, even right

Just go, leave me behind
Just go, let me unwind
Just go, leave me behind
Just go, let me unwind
