Song Description

A song about addiction, denial and finally, accountability,on both sides of the family.

Story Behind the Song

I've always liked the combination of majestic and hard rock elements "Prog-rock" offers. Big harmonies and soaring vocals push my buttons. My lead vocal on this song doesn't exactly push my buttons (maybe the "SKIP" button, perhaps), but not bad for a son

Lyrics

?Who took the fire out of my heart??
She cried and stumbled on through the dark
Like a drunken runway model, crashing into walls
Red carpet self-destruction, destined to eventually fall

Chorus:

?No thanks, I?m fine?
Yet still she?s sleeping in a fit of anger
Just losing time
She?ll flash her little smile of self-denial and run?
Into a tidal wave
To face the tidal wave


Burned out the warning light in her mind
Thought life could never be so unkind
Found love in a foreign substance, only to prevail
No family intervention, standing on the sidelines we fail

Chorus 2:

Stay high and dry
Clich├ęs weigh like an anchor on her shoulders
Don?t make her cry
But tears are building up and turning colder


Threw down her looking glass to the floor
Saw ghostly images at her door
Dark forecast on the future, was it meant to be?
Someone calm me, this tsunami is gonna get the better of me

Chorus 3:

Don?t run, don?t hide
Because the street?s just another treadmill heading nowhere
We?re on your side
And it?s true we share the blame and helped you get there
We love you, child
Never ever want to lose our one-and-only daughter
Calm seas turn wild
But your heart must rise above this troubled water

To face the tidal wave
To fight the tidal wave
To stop the tidal wave
To beat the tidal wave
