ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
2:22 is the result of handing a neurotic, manic depressive an ongoing recording session to vent as therapy following his most recent heart break session. The album is chock full of hurt-feelin’ goodies with tracks “Nightmare” and “I’ve got 99 Problems but a % Ain’t 1” being the exceptions. The former being more about realizing inescapable darkness that lies inside oneself while the last bastion of mental sanity crumbles to give way to a worst case scenario made reality. Meanwhile, the latter laments semi-serious conspiracy grumblings hinting that things aren’t quite the way they should be and there is little that can be done about it.

Beyond that, if you delve into the lyrics you will find yourself immersed in assumedly relatable feelings of loneliness, longing, despair, inadequacy, aggravation, regret, and wanting to take the reins on these things to ride them straight to the bottom. There is however the music, which as it stands in contrast to the sometimes dire lyricism, a hopeful and triumphant backdrop that the vocals stand firmly against. This has been a Mercy Beach hallmark that everything in the composition has a balance of contradiction.

This album is in fact for the faint of heart. As well as those who've been made stronger by recovering from struggles and strife that accompany love and their lessons that sometimes take far, far too long to learn.
