about

This was a track I created in 2016 after becoming quite sick. My band was falling apart, and I felt as if I was dying. The original song written to it was about human survival. It was an okay song, but I felt it just wasn't quite there.

One of my close friends and fellow musicians kept encouraging me to work on the track and maybe to write a new song to it. I decided to give it a go and the next morning had this song written.

It speaks to the struggle to become better when you're questioning everything and feeling trapped under the weight of it all. I hope it can provide something for those who need its message.

lyrics

"Gold"

Is it a masterpiece
Is it the soul I seek
Is it the blood I bleed
Is it the cold release
Is it the war I fight
Is it the heart inside
Is it the tears I've cried

Now I know that I might not
Make it out for a minute
But I know it's the only life
That I've been given

So this is the masterpiece
This is the soul I seek
This is the blood I bleed
This is the cold release
This is the war I fight
This is the heart inside
These are the tears I've cried

When it's gold, hot as the fire I hold
Coming down fast like a lightning bolt
It's gold, no other place I know
Coming down fast, never let me go

It's gold, gold, gold, gold
It's gold

Inside my head I scream
Minimalize my dreams
Telling myself to see
This ain't no masterpiece
What am I fighting for
If I ain't fighting for
Something that I believe

So this is the masterpiece
This is the soul I seek
This is the blood I bleed
This is the cold release
This is the war I fight
This is the heart inside
These are the tears I've cried

When it's gold, hot as the fire I hold
Coming down fast like a lightning bolt
It's gold, no other place I know
Coming down fast, never let me go

When it's gold, hot as the fire I hold
Coming down fast like a lightning bolt
It's gold, no other place I know
Coming down fast, never let me go

It's gold, gold, gold, gold
It's gold

Now I know that I might not
Make it out for a minute
But I know it's the only life
That I've been given

When it's gold, hot as the fire I hold
Coming down fast like a lightning bolt
It's gold, no other place I know
Coming down fast, never let me go

When it's gold, hot as the fire I hold
Coming down fast like a lightning bolt
It's gold, no other place I know
Coming down fast, never let me go

It's gold, gold, gold, gold
It's gold
