Make Up My Mind [DEMO]

about

This is a demo that we recorded during our tour in DE/NL last November. We had a few days off, and during that time we set up a mobile recording rig and tracked some of the new material I had been working on. This picture is from the last evening of our demo sessions, when we knew we had captured some really great beginnings.

This was one of the first songs I wrote during my forced "workshop" last fall. I felt like I'd been spinning my wheels for a long time, mired in my own indecision and sense of detachment from the craziness surrounding us. I feel like it's a good reminder to myself that things are never as bad as they seem, that we make our own circumstances, that sometimes there's no obvious right or wrong answer - you just have to close your eyes and pick a direction. Indecision will sap your lifeblood if you let it rule you.

lyrics

The sky is just as gray as when it started
and some things never change
but I'm not so broken-hearted
I can't rearrange these deck chairs one more time....

And I woke up this morning to find the world on fire
but the burn was controlled
and we all just went to work like it was fine
like it was fine.

'Cause most of us are as happy as we wanna be
oh what a curse that I can never decide
'cause I've considered every possibility
now if I could just make up my mind.

Tell everyone what I'm worth.
Punch above my weight.
Stop being afraid.
Listening for the crowd's roar,
wondering where it's at.
Take the bully straight down to the mat....

'Cause most of us are as happy as we wanna be
oh what a curse that I can never decide
'cause I've considered every possibility
now if I could just make up my mind.

And I woke up this morning to find the world on fire
but the burn was controlled
and we all just went to work like it was fine
like it was fine.

'Cause most of us are as happy as we wanna be
oh what a curse that I can never decide
'cause I've considered every possibility
now if I could just make up my mind.
