Hold Your Breath

This is the introduction to the album ­ a holy sounding church­like number about taking back control over your life after a serious of cataphoric events. The line “I’m alright” is a mantra to tell yourself to continue on, and that better times are waiting just around the corner.


Hold Your Breath

I held my breath for as long as I could
We didn’t speak but our eyes understood
Silence so holy, we worship the night
It’s gonna be fine, alright?

Because the ones you knew
They always come through

Lost in the fires how my mask fell away
Sweet suffocation, I grieve as I gave
Silence so holy, your eyes made me blind
It’s gonna be fine alright, he said
It’s gonna be fine alright?


from The World Conspires, released October 18, 2019
