There was a spot of time a few years ago where I was going through a major depression. My finances were in disarray, my dating prospects seemed to get dimmer by the day, my car was broken I could feel myself getting distant from all I cared about…I felt like I was sinking and nothing could go right. And the more I thought about it, the more I got down on myself.
As usual, I’ve been going through some off personal stuff of late. Long story, don’t really want to go into it here. When I woke up this morning, I found myself inspired to write some lyrics about it. But I don’t really fully know what these are about. Some of it definitely involves separating from various bad people/situations, some involves an old childhood prayer, some involves the renewed feeling I get once I take a shower. Why they’re connected and why my mind is going this way though…your guess is as good as mine.
Also, I should title this song sometime, but the best title I’ve come up with is “Hydro-renewal”…any ideas?
Sometimes, life gives you lemons. Other times, it gives you a seemingly impossible life situation without any real form of escape. In these times, escapism is nice. This particular song was written during a time when I shut myself off from everything and instead escaped very heavily into videogames to avoid some bad real life situations.

Ah, another year has come and gone. And with it comes several people making resolutions. Including two of them from me.
Yes, I know that I usually don’t and that I even had a post last year about doing them by week instead. This year, it just seems more important than most to make an effort to fix things, probably because 2010 was so abysmal for me. I won’t get into the details, but trust me…it was bad.
So, I’m making two resolutions to fix this. (more…)
