I love when I'm going through my oldest stuff and I find something I had forgotten. I wrote this song, according to Soundcloud, 3 years ago. I can't /believe/ I took it down. It's another of my favorite tracks that just sort of... speaks to who I really am.

The recording quality is rough. But imagine this: I recorded it sitting at a tiny ass card table in a cheap extended stay hotel because I had no home. I was lucky to be recording at all.

I wrote the singing part on a guitar riff I had strummed out randomly one night. Then I heard this song by Waidmann. I remember the jolt of inspiration like it was yesterday. I recorded the sung chorus parts, then went back and wrote in a rap.

After all of that, there were still open spaces. So I googled the word that I was feeling that night- "Depression". I clicked on the first message board that popped up and basically just read the first post into the microphone. I forget the girls' name, but her words resonated with me so deeply that I had to use it.

At the start you can hear 3 subtle plucks on my old guitar... Those strings, those strings are my old strings. They broke years back, but they were the same strings my father would play lullabies on to sing me to sleep. I cherish the tonality of those ancient strips of coiled metal. The siren was real, too. Pissed me off at first, but then I realized it really highlighted the feel of my inner country kid stuck in the city.

I've lived in the city now for 7 years and I can't believe it. I'm used to it, and it's grown on me. But still, some nights, I crave the chirping of crickets under a sky with so many stars you can't believe it.

Anyways, here's a track you might have missed. Maybe it's a track you've never heard. But I hope you love it with the deep intensity that I do.

[Lyrics]

[This is DJDj]
Someday [x6]
And it might just be
a day just like,
a day just like today
Time
Time has never been a factor
I wake up in the morning
to the cities and the tractors

Standin in line
but feelin' outta control
the supercorporate understory
wants my soul

Yeah, that's right
it's takin a toll
cause way too many people'd
rather rock than roll

let's trade this race
for a liesurely stroll
let's turn the page
and let our lives unfold

[Spoken]

I think I am depressed. I feel like there is no point in my life anymore. I want out. I cry myself to sleep because I'm scared and I hate the world I live in. I am sick... I want out. I am sick... There's no point in my life anymore.

[Sung]

Can you see them walkin' down the street?
And do you feel them lookin' right through me?
Like silent insults in the air-
can you hear the way they stare?
Can you hear them looking right through me?
[Cause I'm scared and I hate the world I live in.]

[Damn. A lot can happen in a short amount of time... that's quite interesting.]

I watched it all pass by
my life, my time:
and now I ask why?

I watch my best friends
livin' like kings
while I'm steady just sittin here
sittin just to sing

I don't know where I'm goin
But I'm not lost
I can smell the open freeway
truck is pumpin that exhaust

I'm just steady hands-out
feelin through the mist
keepin close to solid ground
and tryna co-exist

[sung]
No- No.
I don't wanna give it one more try.
No- No.
These Prayers, they never pacify
these fears inside
and I dont wanna
I dont wanna
I dont wanna
Try...

Cause I'm scared and I hate the world I live in.
