about

This week’s song is attempting to address the weird way in which our concepts of our lives shift around. One day being alive feels one way, and the next day it feels different. One day you can relate with a perspective, and the next day you can’t. One day you’re afraid of the dark, and suddenly you grow out of it. One day you think you know who you are, then the next you don’t anymore, and then the day after that you know it stronger than ever. Being alive is tumultuous and strange. Sometimes it feels like we’re all just hanging on for dear life as the scenery passes us by at some ludicrous speed. This song is about how weird it is that every day you are a unique and temporary iteration of yourself, and each iteration is just floating away into the past. Strange indeed.

lyrics

You won’t believe
What I’ve been going through
I call my friends
And talk about the past
I can’t relate
To almost anyone
It always feels
Like it’s about to rain

And ain’t it strange?
Common sense saying look the other way

I said ain’t it strange?
To pretend it’s just any other day

I don’t believe
In darkness anymore
I’ve never once
Allowed the monster in
Feels like your heart’s
A quiet passenger
Feels like the sting
After you hear your name

And ain’t it strange?
Common sense saying look the other way

I said ain’t it strange?
To pretend it’s just any other day

Good God when you say
Believe in anything and nothing
Ain’t it strange?

It ain’t OK
You count the days just like the seconds fall away
