Happy Birthday ccMixter! What an incredible 16 years of collaboration and creativity. Kindly consider giving ccM a birthday gift today…

I wrote this little ditty just before my hip replacement surgery and recorded a handful of vocal takes, hoping there would be something decent to edit together during recovery. ABN created such a polished track, it was easy to write and sing to.

Here’s hoping my recovery from my injury aligns with a world recovery from Covid and Trump.

Too Deep
by Madam Snowflake

We live in a time of terror
I’m a mirror, a fact bearer
My brothers seems to learn by trial and error
Tragically, tragedy, measured by the casualties
Sing it honestly

Yea, I’m afraid while I’m awake
Because we’re in too deep
I’m afraid while I’m awake
Should I go back to sleep

Blade cold against my skin
Balance on this edge, razor thin
Derangement, normal world we live in
Walking dead, a quintessential human
Zoom in
Take a closer look at reality petrifying me
This terror of a new kind
Infectious disease of insanity
What is that a zombie
Staring back at me

With my waking eyes
With my waking eyes
Shield my waking eyes
This fear don’t only come at night

With my waking eyes
With my waking eyes
Oh, shield my waking eyes
Stand up and fight, rise up and fight

But I’m afraid while I’m awake
Because we’re in too deep
Yea I’m afraid while I’m awake
Should I go back, should I go back to sleep

Should I go back to sleep
Should I go back to sleep
I’d rather dream, I’d rather dream, I’d rather dream, I’d rather dream
Go back to sleep

Admitting that I’m frightened
Of the evil and the men that have tightened
Their power on a people that are simply not enlightened
But there’s a fight to reunite and that’s our existential right

Blocked line of sight
2 degrees Fahrenheit will burn us all alive
Still we overspend, overextend
For the dividends
That’s a dead end
Turn around to make amends
My friends, my friends

Oh, I’m afraid while I’m awake (I’m afraid)
We’ve gone too far, we’re in too deep (speak truth)
Yea, I’m afraid while I’m awake (I’m afraid)
Should I go back to sleep

With my waking eyes (I’m wide awake)
With my waking eyes (it’s all at stake)
Shield my waking eyes
This fear don’t only come at night

With my waking eyes (I’m wide awake)
With my waking eyes (it’s all at stake)
Oh, shield my waking eyes
Stand up and fight, rise up and fight

I’m afraid while I’m awake (I’m afraid)
‘Cause we’re in too deep
I’m afraid while I’m awake
I can’t go back to sleep
