A new song for my band Actions & Consequence. Written in the last practice session. Short and fast punk rock.
Looking out to sea, this is where you left me
Can’t figure out, Can’t figure out
Why you’re doing this to me.
And now I’m here, standing where you left me.
Show me the space, show me the space
between the skyline and the sea.
You destroyed my worth
Haven’t felt this small since birth
My ego left in ruins
Drowning in your curse
On Monday I’m recording a song with my band, Actions & Consequence, it’s gonna be a (very kindly donated) free session - which is why it’s just the one song - but I’m so stoked and have never done anything like this before.
It was only a year ago that I sang in front of other humans for the first time so this feels like another huge leap- I’ve only recently started to feel really comfortable singing in front of my band mates and able to try new things and techniques- and ‘let myself go’.
The song we’re doing is a newer one for us but one I wrote, in it’s first stages, just over a year ago when my wife and I separated. It’s titled ‘Leaving’ and uses the analogy of wanting to escape your home town - a place that’s full of poisonous people and bad memories- yet somehow always manages to pull you back in.
It’s fast and short punk rock like the majority of our songs- and has a very ‘early AFI’ feel to it. With call & reply style verses from myself and Bassist DanK, and a chorus line that fights against the guitar.
So happy to finally be doing this but I really don’t know how anxious I may feel once stood in front of that mic.
Next step after this will be playing our first live show and recording a full EP. And I cannot wait.
