about

Easily my most "rock" recording to date, which seems more unusual than it should given what an integral part of my musical mindset it is. I suppose I tend to write more folky singer/songwriter stuff normally since it's what the one-guy-in-a-bedroom setup lends itself to most easily. But with modern recording capabilities, I can really work into just about any musical dimension and I plan to explore that more.

This song was influenced mostly by 90s indie rock like Pavement, Guided by Voices, and Ride, though there's a good dose of Ramones here too. Even though it's more uptempo and sonically bulky, it's more stripped down than most of my work from a songwriting perspective and relies more on rhythm and guitar indulgence than usual.

lyrics

Well I've been waiting cause I've been scared
But I think it's almost time
I've been waiting cause that's what they told me to do
But I think I'm ready to change my mind

I think I'm ready to swallow the surgery
cause I wanna open my head
I think I'm gonna put myself under
I just hope that what I find doesn't kill me instead

I'm just a kid but I'm aching for answers
I'm nineteen and I wanna see
I'm just a human searching for something
I wanna be a part of something bigger than me

Well I've been waiting cause I've been scared
But I think it's almost time
I've been waiting cause that's what they told me to do
But I think I'm ready to change my mind

I'm just a kid but I'm tired of waiting
I'm nineteen and I wanna leave
I'm just a human ready to sacrifice
safety for something that's bigger than me

I hope I'm ready to see the other side
I hope I come out alive
I hope I'm ready to be the other side
I hope I come out alive

I hope I'm ready
I think I'm ready
