Anyone who plays guitar knows that sometimes you get a buzz in your string that you just can't abide. Maybe nobody listening would even notice it, but it's there, just behind your note, grating against the melody. In a broader context, sometimes the senses can be too much, and you just have to retreat from them. This is a song of appreciation for the quiet and the darkness during those times when they offer simple refuge. It's okay to block it all out for a while. It's allowed.


The buzzing in my string
A funny little sound
The hum beyond intention
The way I come unwound
Everyone needs silence
Everyone needs moments to dwell within

The light gets in my eyes
My shades can't block it out
Aloof and in my corner
You'd have to seek me out
Everyone needs darkness
Everyone needs moments to dwell within
