about

This is a song about breaking open, about the ways a tight pathos has kept me trying hard to “be/do the ‘right’ thing” which has kept me far from the truer place
inside me, the place of my passion and desire. The breaking through is the scream in the night, not wanting to feel tightly caught any longer. I feel myself waking up every night as I dream new dreams of the deeper world, where it isn’t about morals and right or wrong, it is about the heart and as Carl Jung wrote, “the Spirit of the Depths.” And speaking of morals, in a strange twist of irony, we kept the lyrics “clean” for the CD, but if you can imagine/feel into the song with the real words, (i.e. not “frigging”), you will have a better sense/feel of the energy of this song.

lyrics

I feel so tight inside
twisted up and tied
into a thousand knots
living in toxic shock

If I could, I would
I’d scream into the night
I’m tired of being so frigging good
I’m tired of doing what I think I should hey, hey

I hear the pouring rain
Sometimes I think I’m too sane
For my own good
And if I only, only could

I’d scream, I’d shout
I’d scream into the night
I’m tired of being so frigging good
I’m tired of doing what I think I should hey, hey

Don’t tell me your lies cause
I can see now and I am wise to
Your deception, manipulation
I’m waking up, losing hesitation
Don’t think I don’t see you
Darkness comes and I want to break through
I want my energy I want to be free
I want to live the soul in me

I feel a weight life
My body starts to shift
I'm waking from a deep
Paralyzing, paralyzing sleep

I can and I will
I’ll scream into the night
I’m tired of being so frigging good
I’m tired of doing what I think I should, hey hey
