about

Around 9 or 10 years ago, my bff Johnny Parks wrote a couple riffs that just oozed badassery. Fast forward to a year ago and an early version of SoC began putting those riffs to good use. I had had the hook in my head for nearly a decade when we began the actual structuring, so I focused on writing verses.

This song is a description of a man who's watching himself lose his ability to filter his thoughts due to always being Mr. Nice Guy and always getting screwed. He loses the ability to control himself and has to then deal with the blow back of his actions and words, while trying to maintain a balance between that "I don't give a fuck attitude" and "I'm sorry".

-Jess

lyrics

Lonely soul, I walk this road
This monkey on my back.
My filter's torn, my patience worn out,
Anxiety attacks.

(Here it comes again...)

They lose their mind when i speak mine,
So to myself I keep.
Overload, I lose control,
This harvest they soon reap.

(Here it comes again...x2)

You're always lookin' at me
Like you hate what you see,
But you all fail to realize
you don't mean shit to me.
I walk around this world
Like i got nothin' to lose.
You'll never understand
This is the life that i choose.

The battle's done and no one's won.
I crawl under my rock.
It will return, the fire still burns, oh,
No sign of it's stop.

(Solo)

Lonely soul, I walk this road
This monkey on my back.
My filter's torn, my patience worn out,
Anxiety attacks.

(Here it comes again...x2)

You're always lookin' at me
Like you hate what you see,
But you all fail to realize
you don't mean shit to me.
I walk around this world
Like i got nothin' to lose.
You'll never understand
This is the life that i choose.

You're always lookin' at me
Like you hate what you see,
But you all fail to realize
you don't mean shit to me.
I walk around this world
Like i got nothin' to lose.
You'll never understand
This is the life that i choose.

THIS IS THE LIFE THAT I CHOOSE!
