Why Artwork and Lyrics

Things are moving along nicely with the new music, and i’ve been working on some of the artwork to be included on the sleeve / insert design (see above) as well as finalising lyrics. I’ve also settled on the title for my first EP – Wars Waged Within. A title I think reflects the subject matter, a mentally abusive relationship. You can read more about it here.

Each of the songs will have its own artwork that relates to the lyrical content of the song in question. While I haven’t settled totally on all of the tracks to be included, but I have ideas for many of the songs artwork.

Anyway, here are the lyrics for the song Why?

Why?

Manipulate me, degrade me, it’s what you f**king do
Soul destruction, my heart is crushing, and all because of you
I beg for quiet, God don’t deny it, please just let me be.
Im so tired, so so very tired, and I’m no longer me…

Chorus.

I’ve lived this life forever
Fought this fight alone
Always searching for the answers
To which I’ll never hold
Too many empty questions
Inside my head, alone
I feel the weight taking over
Why is fate so unkind?

You undermine me, your will defines me, in everything I do
Exploited weakness, refilled with blackness, no light shining through
Why can’t I fight this? Resist this, my will just seeps away.
You’re all consuming, futile fight resuming, what am I to do????

Chorus.

I’ve lived this life forever
Fought this fight alone
Always searching for the answers
To which I’ll never hold
Too many empty questions
Inside my head, alone
I feel the weight taking over
Why is fate so unkind?

Pre-Solo

Why is fate so unkind?
Unkind………..
Why is fate so unkind?
Unkind………..

My walls are falling, my fight rebelling, against everything I do
My will is seeping, open wounds weeping, cut open by you
Why do you do this? Enjoy this? Some sense of twisted pain
No more to live this, I need to end this, take your pain away!

Chorus.

I’ve lived this life forever
Fought this fight alone
Always searching for the answers
To which I’ll never hold
Too many empty questions
Inside my head, alone
I feel the weight taking over
Why is fate so unkind?
