Song: Infection Of Restraint

FAWM 2018

Album: FAWM 2018
Track: #17

I struggled pretty hard to get this one out today! I've hit a bit of a creativity lull, but that's the emotion I pulled from too for this song -- writer's block. I wouldn't say it's exactly _about_ writer's block, but that's the mental state I dug from. That being said, I feel like there's not a ton of substance in it lyrically, but I think the music rocks (even though the lesser indulging of you won't listen past the acoustic guitar >:P ). At the very minimum, I enjoy playing it.

Snared in the darkness
Held from down below
Ill-timed catharsis
Rendering me unopposed

Everybody leaves me
For some reason I don't care
I do hope they will all grieve me
And strip my possessions bare

Now the whole world haunts me
Not what I expected at all
At first I thought it had tossed me
Pushed me into the fall

But it was my impetuous dismay
How did I ever get into this state?
It's a vile infection of restraint
