I was initially inspired by Stefan’s awesome guitar samples and jotted down some lyrics. When I heard snowflake’s remix with her piano and vocals, plus Martijn’s bass, well… all it needed were some words and drums. Sooo… I hope you like the ones I added.

Vocals are available here (dry and with FX).

A special shout out to unreal_dm for sharing his mixing wisdom. If the mix sounds clean and crisp, it’s thanks to him. If it doesn’t, I didn’t apply his advice very well. :)

p.s. Does the ending make you think of Forest Gump?

WORDS
All these pathways of the mind
Struggling to sort and find
The link connecting dissipates
As it all, as it all just fades

Time becomes our enemy
Haunting us as we just breathe
Who we are evaporates
As it all, as it all just fades

No one knows at first glance
The struggle keeping you entranced
Pieces of you melt away
As it all, as it all just fades.

All these pathways of the mind
Struggling to sort and find
The link connecting dissipates
As it all, as it all just fades.

Editorial pick

This track is as good as any urban contemporary track I’ve heard in ages, no make that all year. From concept to the last dip of the last fader the writing, vocals, & production are concise, focused and a treat for the ears. Let’s recognize for a moment this woman is one of the best ‘under the radar’ singer/songwriters among us. Congrats Kara, as far as I’m concerned you made the big time a long time ago. Don’t ever think it
doesn’t matter… it does.
