RunI just finished up a new song called Run. It’s somewhat of an experiment in vocal melody as I’m using only two notes for the lead vocal. It’s interesting how the aural perception of those two notes is influenced by the changing chords (to some degree) and then the introduction of the vocal harmonies (to a greater degree).
Please listen with headphones or decent speakers!
The song is somewhat pessimistic in its lyrics. Surprise, surprise–I tend to write moody lyrics, mostly. The “run, you can’t escape the past” lyric in the chorus refers to both conservative and liberal interpretative views of history. The past does mean something, regardless of how we try to re-intrepet it or ignore portions of it. It isn’t negotiable. And the past also does have an unsettling habit of repeating itself. We have great difficulty escaping it.
