Lyrics

Can't shake the power of this fear,
Pulling me through another year
All my lives have been ironic
We're ancient and we're electronic
Is this the end of everything?

Some things cannot be contained
When the storm comes, let it rain

Nothing is ever safe and sound
When the moon is new,
I try to turn it all around
When it comes to you,
I am defenseless
This night is endless

You can't control this, but you try
I'm tired of always asking why
If you feel it, you can't speak it
It's nameless and it's unrestricted
Is this the end of everything?

Some things cannot be contained
When the storm comes, let it rain

Nothing is ever safe and sound
When the moon is new,
I try to turn it all around
When it comes to you,
I am defenseless
This night is endless

I was looking for escape
I was looking for a place to heal
Now I've opened every door
Each one leads into a battlefield

Nothing is ever safe and sound
When the moon is new,
I try to turn it all around
When it comes to you,
I am defenseless
This night is endless

Nothing is ever safe and sound
When the moon is new,
I try to turn it all around
When it comes to you,
I am defenseless
This night is endless
I am defenseless

This sounds like an updated version of ABBA. Solid sound, good vocals.

Reminded me a LOT of the track Stay The Night by Zedd/Hayley Williams - I guess it's the singers voice. Great production qualities in this track. Congratulations.

I particularly like the lead vocalist. Everything else is very good though, too.

This is a mighty fine piece of writing! You can listen to it on about 2 or 3 levels: relational, spiritual, neo-philosophical. I absolutely love the way the whole composition comes across. It echoes the common fears we carry with us in this uncertain day and age. The reference to ancient and electronic is stellar, as is this verse:

I was looking for escape
I was looking for a place to heal
Now I've opened every door
Each one leads into a battlefield

This is excellent writing! The vocals are crystal clear and the use of effects on the vocal is excellent and super-effective. It's precise and emotionally real at the same time. (storm/let it rain - love this!) There's a lot of wisdom and positivity wrapped up in this song. (when the moon is new, I try to turn things around).
