Fears To Sleep – Despearate as it Seems

July 6th, 2007 · 6 Comments

Story

I am very proud of how this song turned out. It switches around just right. The transitions are Awesome! Personally I feel like it’s one of the best produced songs I’ve done.

The story of this song occurs in Iowa. My wife and I had gone there to live – with her parents. I was a truck driver, and snow quite literally was my death. No I’m not talking about cocaine.

“Desperate as it seems” – the last part of this song. Had Anthony Valdez pen it’s lyrics. Since this part of the song was written first, he got really pissed at me when I did it. Called me a plagiarist. I of course took offense to this, because I wrote the music. I never said I wrote all the lyrics.

To my knowledge I’ve always given him credit where credit is due with this song, and every other song we’ve written/preformed together.

Lyrics

Put your fears to sleep
Let them drift off
Rest your weary feet
you did a good job

Many people see death as black,
Mine is white. Oohhohhh (3x)

Put your fears to sleep (4x)

Many people see death as black,
Mine is white. Oohhohhh (3x)

Many People (2x)
Put your fears to sleep(4x)
Put your fears

We’re all lost (3x)
In this race
part of
human race
We’re all lost

Desperate as it seems
I’ve forgiven you
and all shit it brings,
it’s not my fault

Too much whiskey
In my head again
Too much sedatives
It’s not my fault

{solo}

Too much whiskey
In my head again
Too much sedatives
It’s not my fault
