Song: The Malefactors

FAWM 2022

Album: FAWM 2022
Track: #7

This is the third and final song Phil & I wrote together. We didn't quite finish it that day, so I had to on my own. The goal was to write another love song, but, like much of the things he & I write, it fell into more of a deeper/darker story.

This is, I think, an examination into psychosis and maybe a more Pink-Floyd-esque way of expressing how the world can often drive people away from themselves.

I like it, but, like much of FAWM, time will tell where this song ends up in my personal rankings.

Six songs for 7 days now ... hopefully I can catch up tomorrow (or I may just go through to March 1st, depending if I get that kind of motivation/inspiration).

Lyrics Print

Of all the girls I've ever known
You're the only one who feels like home
Though sometimes I find myself there all alone

And of the feelings that I've sown
It's the lonely ones that seem to've grown
And I can't tend this garden on my own

Of the realities I chose
It's the phony one that healed me most
And deep into that darkness I dove

And it revealed the tale the malefactors wrote
Braiding curiosity
They sought to climb straight up to heaven on that rope
So they could see ...

The worlds I've ever known
Can any ever bring me home?
The worlds I've ever known
Can any ever bring me home?
The worlds I've ever known
Can any ever bring me home?
The worlds I've ever known
Can any ever bring me home?
