The recording department has been quiet for a while now. You know how life gets in the way of your big plans. With the holidays out of the way and with the canvas that is a shiny new year, I’m hoping to get back into some of the things that have gone by the wayside.
As a New Year’s resolution, I’m planning to have a complete record finished by the end of 2015. And what better way to prove it than by posting a new song!
In my online life, I’ve posted a lot of things about my frustrations with people generally living with tunnel vision. The whole “ignorance is bliss,” “everybody else is doing it so it must be right” phenomenon. When people take everything in the news at face value and are oblivious to the bias inherent in any information source, I get frustrated. After many arguments (usually with me getting called a pessimist), I lose the drive to bang my head on these brick walls. I think many people walk away thinking I’ve lost it. The thing is, with my life observations, I know that I’m not the one who’s lost it. At some point it’s easier to just walk away than to try to teach someone how to think critically or consider both sides regardless of which side you’re on. While I’m not really about to give up just yet, it really is an attractive prospect. That’s what this song is about. Turning my back on those who are too ignorant to open their eyes to the world around them.
