🎼 Lyrics:
Intoxication, has got me under, somebody’s wicked little spell
Anticipation, of what it could be, has got me going round the bend
My addiction, so warm and comforting, don’t wanna be without it now
Alienation, from all my enemies, and I don’t know which way to turn

But In time, we could all be friends again and maybe even best friends if we try
In time, all of this will be behind us, everybody has a chance to cry

Suffocation, is what I fear the most, and what I’m feeling here today
Recognition, can be the hardest part, and leave you foaming at the mouth
My repulsion, is getting hard to bear, for you it must be even worse
Generations, an uphill battle that, I plan to win before the end

But In time, we could all be friends again and maybe even best friends if we try
In time, all of this will be behind us, everybody has a chance to cry
In time, everyone will have a home and there will be enough to go around
And in time, we can start again you know cause everybody gets a little down

Everybody gets a little down

💬 Behind the song:
“In Time” was one of the first complete songs I wrote and recorded using GarageBand iOS completely. It was built around the guitar riff using the interesting Em9 and Am7 variations, with a more traditional rock chorus based around E-A-B.

The lyrics tell the story of someone dealing with deception and their own feeling of dread at their suspicion. The chorus may sound happy on the surface, but is actually intended to be a sign of the delusion, where the protagonist is trying to convince themselves that everything is fine, when clearly it is not.

Originally the song was going to be longer with a bridge and breakdown before the final chorus, but I ended up liking the intensity it generated by only being two minutes.
