ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I wrote this song January 2012 after taking a Shakespeare class in which we read Hamlet.

Lyrics:
I don’t know what to think anymore
Yet what’s worse I don’t know if I ever did
In this world of blind allegiance
Did they use me, could I let myself admit this

And all I wanted was assurance
That my thoughts were worth something
But they just speak with condescension
While you leave my soul trembling

So I won’t trust no one, can’t trust myself
With eyes wide open
Cause I can’t trust your words, you’ve made it worse
With false devotion
‘Cause you tell me what you want to hear
What you want to hear (2x)
Want to believe in
You tell me what you want to hear
And I believe it (2x)

Cause I don’t know how to feel anymore
Yet what’s worse I don’t know if I ever did at the start
And garlands form beneath my fingers, music pours (from) between my lips
And the ruthless tintinnabulation throbs as your poison in my ears
As I fall
'Cause what else could I do
Fall

So I won’t trust no one, can’t trust myself
With eyes wide open
‘Cause I can’t trust your words, you’ve made it worse
With false devotion
‘Cause you tell me what you want to hear
What you want to hear (2x)
Want to believe in
You tell me what you want to hear
What you want to hear
And I believe it (2x)

'Cause what else could I do
It’s tragic, they say, that when you took him
You took my judgment too
Yet now I see what I pushed aside to keep myself sane
I see the truth in all of you
Thorned fingers for what gain;
Tell me is it better to let it all go
Or just keep playing this game
Or will they both amount in the same

'Cause I don’t know what to feel anymore
Yet what’s worse I don’t know if I ever did from the start
How can I cope with all this chaos
Lamentations from my lips
Think what they’ll say of poor Ophelia
Lost within Neptunian grip
As I fall into my own reflection
