The Things That We Carry

NSFW. There, you've been warned.

I will eventually have all of the Small Shiny Things tracks up here, except one. I want a do-over for one.

I don't know why I like this one as much as I do. I greatly forget about it until I hear it and then I think I might have done a few things right on this song. I'm not sure what, but something works for me.

It's brutal. And it has tenses that don't really agree.

I had been going through some stuff. I was in a relationship that I should have valued, but didn't. I was dealing with my failing body, and that sucked.

I wanted to say more and I'm a little in love with not having been able to. I like hitting my limitations. This should do more and I'm ashamed of it, but proud of it at the same time.

I like what Jay did on the bass and I wish the drums were a little bigger, Matt did something pretty great in there, too. We fought over the guitars, but I'm happy with the performance, if not the EQ.

In the End you make up your mind. Here's a failure of mine:

Take it. It's all yours.
