This week I thought I’d shed some light on “Exorcist”. This song was inspired by and named after the 1973 William Friedkin film. I wrote it about feeling possessed by my anxiety and acknowledging its control over me and the effect it had on my behavior and thoughts. I came to a point where I was paranoid about everything, and even afraid to leave my house at times. Writing this song brought me to the realization that rather than trying to keep pushing myself 100% constantly like I had been, it was necessary for me to take some time for myself to confront what I went through, and heal.
“Exorcism give me life. I need to find my mind. Save me from the devil inside.” – the devil being anxiety. I am very pleased to say that I have exorcised the anxiety which possessed me, and I can finally say that I am truly okay.
Have a lovely week, Stormchasers.
