Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

I shut my hand in a door about ten seconds before recording this! Oopsies.

Lyrics: 

I drift off from solid ground
It’s gonna take more than five senses to calm me down
I see visions on the table and a bad decision
I try to lay it all out to develop a mission

My precision’s shot to hell and my form is off
I hear echoes of a villain that had never lost
I smell metal, taste fear, get me out of here
I feel wrong, I feel wrong, I feel wrong, I feel wrong

And you grab me
And I hold on
Yeah, you grab me
I hold on

Before we vowed to lay down our health to help
Before girls and parallels, before spells, before hell
Before I threw bitter punches in the summer streets
I accepted time with the deadbeats

Yeah, panic doesn’t get you a stable gig
Yeah, these slow, slow breaths got me feeling sick
When I hit rock bottom I’ll be ready to dig
Ready to dig, ready to--

But you grab me
And I hold on
Yeah, you grab me
I hold on

And you grab me
And I hold on
Yeah, you grab me
I hold on

And you grab me
And I hold on
Yeah, you grab me
I hold on

Quite lovely. Soothing even. I could see this song is a film where the main character is walking the city streets pondering something big. Sorry about your hand. Ouch!

you combine the inner intensity of Louise Wener with the gentle exterior of Rumer, resulting in music that is like the ocian, calm on the surface and mysteries within. and the excellence of your writing doesnt hurt either.

we have a singer called Missy Higgins who has a similar quality in her voice - her lyrics have a similar edge (early stuff) another fine song! the flow is great!

Beautiful. Love the backgrround sound, to me it sounds like a film projector. Because i'm old and that's what we had in school when I was a kid.

I smell metal. Taste fear. Yeah, this is not a comfortable situation. But you grab me. Sometimes that happens. I feel like I know what you mean, maybe.

This speaks to me even if it's not my life exactly.
