This week I’ve chosen to talk about “Graveyard”. This was the first song I wrote for the album. I originally wrote it before the lineup change, and those set of lyrics were more about the things that I was noticing around me and the heartbreak and loss of trust. I called it “No Trust” at the time. I set the song aside as the dissolution was occurring. I just didn’t have the motivation to be writing. After the change, I felt so angry. I went back to the song and ended up rewriting most of the lyrics and the song became more of a burial speech for those who were gone. It’s my empowerment song. Sometimes change is the best thing that could happen to you.
“Getting stronger by the minute, treat me one rose at a time. I don’t want to face the night alone with little or nothing haunting my soul. Mind my heart, I feel like I’m losing a nation. If only for a moment, we’ll walk through the graveyard.”
