about

This track pays a great deal of homage to what I consider to be the greatest band ever from Dayton, Ohio, "My Latex Brain."

Other than that....
No real explanations, back story or notes this time....

Listen, read & make it your own.

PLEASE DOWNLOAD IN THE HIGHEST FORMAT POSSIBLE. WAV, etc....

This single is also be available on iTunes(possibly in 2 parts so you don't have to pay full album price because of the length,) Spotify, Google Play, Pandora, Amazon, Beats, Rdio, Deezer, Tidal, YouTube Music Key, etc... as well as 150+ smaller outlets. Just search around on your favorite music site. If it's not on there, let me know & I will get it on there!

lyrics

He said, "Cut your losses, kid. Cuz when you're an old man like me, you can't walk away."

Well now I'm that old man.
Lost count of my scars.
And I wasn't even, supposed to live this long.
I've been broken, sure, but I've never been beaten.
Been cracked in two, but I'm still undefeated.

Trust few.
Fear no one.
Push through.
And never settle down.
Hold fast.
To those dreams.
Die last.
And always live your dash.
Always live your dash.

Another song..... Another Summer.
Some place in this is....
Some where in this is....
I dunno.
I am not a simple man.
Have mercy.
And lay my burdens down.
Have mercy....
And lay, my burdens down....

Cut. Me. Down. I. Grow. Back.

They last forever.

So I cut my losses.
And I learned to fail forward.
But it's true I can't walk away....
Well now I'm that old man.
Lost count of my scars.
And I wasn't even, supposed to live this long.
I've been broken, sure, but I've never been beaten.
Been cracked in two, but I'm still undefeated.

Trust few.
Fear no one.
Push through.
And never settle down.
Hold fast.
To those dreams.
Die last.
And always live your dash.
Always live your dash.

It starts all over again....

about

idiedtrying Park Layne, Ohio

idiedtrying. - A mission of creating timeless & compelling music, with a cinematic context & pushing the boundaries of emotion within art.

Sometimes beautiful, often joylessly melancholy but most accurately described as horrific. Forever art-damaged. Complete murdered auditory terrorism. The peak of transient delving, compulsive emotional mutilation.

Uncategorical and terrifyingly cathartic.
