Song Description

6/8 waltz feel, driven by brush drums, strummed acoustic, upright bass, low raspy vocals and a beautiful array of folk-inspired instruments as well as trippy-sounding reversed guitars played harmonically throughout the song. Features a harmonica solo, trumpet solo, mandolin accompaniment, violin accompaniment, mellotron flutes and strings.

Story Behind the Song

This song was written in frustration of the over-usage of social media, how people just exclaim their feelings and thoughts for the world to see, making any sense of mystery vanish in this modern day. However, the lyrics are obscure and the chorus, yet catchy, is open to interpretation.

Lyrics

Endless words and broken voices
Swirling empty pages
Hoping to hitch a ride on broken ears and eyes
Desperate hollow realizations
And false emancipations
All written on display in public diary

Don't, don't you ever keep anything inside?
Don't, don't you ever think
That some things are better to hide?

Electric syllables of silence
Of passion and of violence
All pangs of vacuum corridors beneath your golden skin
And I, I can hear you crying
But I can't discern from lying
A thousand ears can make a whisper disappear

Don't, don't you ever keep anything inside?
Don't, don't you ever think
That some things are better off disguised?

Don't, don't you ever keep anything inside?
Don't, don't you ever think
That some things are better denied?
