ISOLATION the song
Isolation is the first release off my upcoming EP Corners. It’s a song that explores the unraveling mental state of being subject to loneliness in isolation.
I heard a knocking late at night Got out of bed turned on the lights to see I am afraid of me I heard a voice calling my name Swear it was yours but once again I was wrong No one there but me Wash until it bleeds Blackout just to sleep Cry to become numb Numb to later feel Feel just to be Not afraid of us Afraid to self-destruct They come and go Go as they please Obsessions over what we cannot see I am afraid of me Reintroduce me to this life I won’t harm but I’m holding a knife I am afraid of me And if I die alone With no mouths to feed I’ll still feel the warmth Of my computer screen Feeling to self-destruct I fear to self-destruct But there’s just one thing To wash it off Come close to me Right before you left Had no bruises on my knees It was the sound of your breath Echoing
When I wrote Isolation I was quite deep into Haruki Murakami’s IQ84 and at that same time decided to explore as much news as possible on how the coronavirus effected society. What I discovered was all quite alarming, thought provoking and heartbreaking. I also remember reading this one article where news reporters wrote about how difficult it was for people to date during this quarantine. When I finished reading that article the song idea for Isolation came to me. I think something about that article mixed with the Sci Fi love story within IQ84 and my own personal situation inspired Isolation.
Corners will drop on December 4th.
