about

For fellow sound design nerds, the bass sound in this track is a sample of my cat purring. By giving the sound a "picked" envelope and messaging the filter I was able to achieve a pretty sick electric bass sound! Email me if you want a copy of the sound, its in Kontact format.

lyrics

What, what what what what what what
what have I been doing and...
What, what what what what what what
what have I been thinking

You think about me all the time,
funny cause I’m always on my mind
You decided way to young I was free
Asked myself too many questions
forgot it was me
I’m waiting, I’m hoping, I’m praying
you’re listening to me
These walls that I’ve built up
they haven’t done much about me

They say just keep breathing
They say just keep breathing
What the hell does that mean?
They say just keep breathing
They say just keep breathing
What the hell does that mean?

You wish I had been this before
but my darling, I just noticed the floor
its hurts the sound my foot fall makes
as I push off the ground and your heart breaks...

They say just keep breathing
They say just keep breathing
What the hell does that mean?
They say just keep breathing
They say just keep breathing
What the hell does that mean?
They say just keep breathing
They say just keep breathing
What the hell does that mean?
They say just keep breathing
They say just keep breathing so
What the hell have been doing?
