Today I woke up and ran a few errands with Julia, then we went to her work to pick up my jacket that I ordered:
I'm really enjoying this downtime from touring, I just need a long break from it. Some people just love doing it constantly and think it's the coolest thing ever, but that's just not me. I like writing, recording, and performing music...that's it. I don't like the bullshit surrounding it. I don't really care about traveling (at least not at this point in my life), I don't care about the ongoing soap opera that is the underground music scene, and I don't give a shit about making any new friends or kissing "important" people's asses. I just want to make music. There is so much bullshit surrounding touring that most people don't know/think about. I've said it so many times before, but I absolutely love the 30 minutes that I play each night, but there are 23 hours and 30 minutes more than that, making up each day on tour. Everything within that time frame isn't what I'd like to be doing with my day. That's how much I love it though. I will go through 23 and a half hours of shit, just for 30 minutes of playing.
I've had the following lyrics laying around for quite some time now. They are for an Energy song titled "Bleeding Grey". I'm not sure if this song will ever make it to an album, or if we'll even record it, but I'd say these are some of, if not my favorite lyrics that I've written so far, and I just want to share them with anyone that's interested.
Our midnight choir can't lose its fire, burning oh so clean.
I swear I hear the harmony, I swear you spread your wings for me.
Apparitions fill the air with songs of the deceased.
Singing for release...
"Take my hand, believe in me" he said to her so gracefully.
"But as we crawl beneath the wounded, don't shake what you've seen."
Come evade banality and the lifeless sounds of their silent screams.
We'll dance at night and morning will bring sweet tranquility.
Bathing in debris...
