Who is this song about? :)

The pell and all backing vocals are HERE.

I’ve been working on this track for a few weeks but the melody kept evolving and then I’d have to re-track all of the vocals. I don’t have any speakers here in Utah so this is a headphone mix (and an old, wrecked pair at that) so welcome feedback to make it sound better.

A special thanks to Blue Wave Theory for being such an incredible musicians and for sharing such truly amazing stems with us. I felt like Gwen Stefani and Chrissie Hynde singing along with them. I’d love to play live with you guys sometime!

Living Nighmare

I’m wide awake but you’re a nightmare
I can’t escape I’m seeing you everywhere
Words that you say poison the air
I’m wide awake but you’re my nightmare

And you won’t go away

Your trumpeting hate and you don’t play fair
With your arrogant ways and your comb-over hair
Know you’re a fake not a billionaire
No, no, I’m wide awake and you’re a nightmare

And you won’t go away

Blame is your game
Power your aim
No stranger to shame
‘Cuz they made your change your name

Won’t take the bait in your golden snare
You’re known to take more than the lion’s share
Keeping my faith not your lies and despair
Oh, I’m wide, wide awake and you’re a living nightmare

Sadly a certified cynic
Who’s choked on a big dose of bittnerness
Your bigotry is making the whole world sick
‘Cuz you’re oh, so sadistic
And you won’t go away
But I won’t play
Won’t be your prey
Go away
Won’t be your slave
Go away
