Lyrics- The story behind the songs.
There are a few new songs coming out on our E.P. that will be released very soon. Let’s get you familiar with the meaning of the songs before you listen to them.
The first song we want to share with you is an acoustic song that is called “All I’ve Got”. This is a song that was written in the context of death. Andrew wanted to capture the feelings and vibe of what he wishes his death to be, an escape from this world and all the trappings of it. Lyrically, this is not a pretty song. It is a song of hope and desperation. A song that knows how tired the soul is from being caught up by the workings of society and the vultures that squeeze every drop of life out of you. The song is more than a story, it is a wish, a dream. That someday, we will be free.
Take a look at the lyrics below in anticipation of the release.
Here is a demo of the song to listen to (open in a new window or tab so you can read the lyrics while you listen): All I’ve Got
All I’ve Got:
“I want to run where they can’t reach me.
Shoot off like a gun, and I’ll fly beyond the seas.
I want my flesh soaring across the skies, when I die.
Where do you turn when everything’s a lie?
Searching for the truth, but it seems truth’s been denied.
I give it all that I’ve got left in my life, when I die.
Lift me up. Lift me up. I will run, to the sky.
Lift me up. Take me up. I will run, when I die.
My soul will fly, way up across the skies.
What’s coming next as I approach the light?
All my fears fade and comfort now abides.
Is that a ghost I see, or a man brought back to life?
He’s got a hole fixed in his side, and he radiates so bright…”
