about

100% of the proceeds of sales of this track (after bandcamp's deduction for their fee) will be donated to Planned Parenthood on behalf of my mother, Bonnie Blackford.

"timeBOMB (the depression song)" is an edgy track with a misleading, jaunty beginning that gives way to dark lyrics and a more urgent, pressing beat and sound as it delves deeper into what it's like to experience overwhelming depression.

lyrics

oh it's a lovely day!
i'm watering the daisies
there's a timeBOMB in me
i fold the laundry
and rinse the dirty dishes
there's a timeBOMB in me

it's hard to define, kinda subtle to the eye
but it's eating me alive and it's undignified
it's visiting in waves with a venom i can taste
but i'm mentally sound with two feet on a cloud

a multitude of things, so very consequential
nevermind! we all persevere
but affirmations and faculties of reason
are no match for this, i fear

i can't sleep through the night
counting sheep until light
it feels like dynamite
getting ready to ignite
then a bright flash of light
like a meteor in flight
creeping up from inside
turning everything to white

i'm over the edge now
vision is blurred
drifting from my senses
losing my defenses
no turning back now
run for cover
this is the crescendo, this is the crescendo

i'm over the edge now
vision is blurred
this is the crescendo, this is the crescendo, this is the crescendo

i'm over the edge now
vision is blurred
this is the crescendo, this is the crescendo, this is the crescendo
