about

Colorful introspective pop eulogy featuring piano, Fender Rhodes, evocative guitar atmospherics and seductive nuanced female vocals, painting an otherworldly portrait of a loved one gone over the edge.

"Lay down the shield/Cause the battlefield's unwon/She's undone/Let it go unhealed", is the core message of this elegy to the neccessary art of letting go of one who has gone beyond retrieving or repair.

lyrics

The tie that bind’s the tie that blinds
The pact that wed the blood to breath
Always dies hard give up your guard
You’ll know you’ve won when it’s undone

It’s time to hang up on the dream
The wish you wished had never been
The hope that never slept the word unkept
Relinquish or redeem

Nobody knows just where she goes
Follow the tracks down cul de sacs
The shadow’s bend is where they end
Grim harbor for those lost to shore

It’s time to rest your best defense
Surrender all your arguments
You’ve had the final word it’s all been heard
It’s pointless penitence
And you can keep your evidence

Lay down the shield
Cause the battlefield’s unwon
She’s undone
Let it go unhealed

Leave it for lost it’s sunken cost
Here’s what you own: truth in the bone

Give back the anchor to the sea
You’re only losing gravity
And if the center’s given way
It couldn’t bear the light of day

It’s time to hang up on the dream
The wish you wished had never been
The hope that never slept the word unkept
Relinquish or redeem
It’s time to hang up on the dream
