about

Where We End Up was written in the wake of the '08 financial collapse. It was inspired under the peculiar circumstances of knowing I would soon lose my job - in addition to the fear of social, political, & economic instability in general. There's a deep-seated sense of anxiety & vulnerability when confronting a seemingly inevitable outcome, yet there's also an odd sense of hope & acceptance. At the time, it was important for me to express & document these contrasting emotions. This dichotomy also seemed an appropriate context in which to conclude Shadowlands, with an honest embracing of struggle & the sanguine.

lyrics

a few hours past midnight & I can't seem to find
a way to keep the wheels from spinning in my mind
there's got to be a better way to fix it all
without the pill & alcohol
I just never can seem to unwind

& there's nothing you can do
when the end is coming for you
& there's nowhere you can hide
when only time will decide where we end up

the thing about ease is it's fine, until it up & leaves
& then you're left with plenty, plenty of withouts
& you know you should try to stay afloat
but at that point, you're just too damn tired to swim

& there's nothing you can do
when the end is coming for you
& there's nowhere you can hide
when only time will decide where we end up

But I believe in a new day
for you & me
& I believe in a new way
for us to be
