“Crushed” [Song Demo]

Mutineer Song Demo ImageHere’s demo number two, a song called “Crushed,” originally written back in 2008. You can listen to it on Soundcloud by clicking here, or by clicking on the Soundcloud button, below.

I’ll write more about it and put a lyric video together soon. But right now, I’m just about to leave for a week’s vacation. So I’ll leave the lyrics here for now

Even in this very raw form, I absolutely love this song. I hope you do, too.

I recognize the notion and it’s hittin’ me hard again
Never would suffice to take it slowly

Laying down the hammer but I feel I’m the nail again
Rigid, driven, beaten down and lonely

We started innocently with intent to behave
Quickly curiosity will tend to accelerate
By and by anticipation makes you a slave
Cause we want
And we crave

Crushed
By the weight of expectation
Determination hanging over me
I never intended to be
Crushed
Result infatuation
Simple fascination suffocating me
I never intended to be
Crushed

Explain away contentment with a nature to validate
Never feeling warm until we’re burning

Euphoria derailed until you prove you can duplicate
Experience aside we aren’t learning

We started innocently with intent to behave
Quickly curiosity will tend to accelerate
By and by anticipation makes you a slave
Cause we want
And we crave

Crushed
By the weight of expectation
Determination hanging over me
I never intended to be
Crushed
Result infatuation
Simple fascination suffocating me
I never intended to be
Crushed
