about

When I first wrote this song, it had a totally different feel. It was a lot more poppy and happy in a way, and the vocals were doing similar things, but in a major key. Then we decided to evolve it a little further during the pre-tracking. I tried out a more middle eastern vibe in the chording structure. I came up with the new vocal melody on the fly and we kept it just like that for the real recording.

This song is all about dark entanglement with something that you want, but know is bad for you. It's also about letting go, giving into truth, and freeing your mind.

lyrics

Spiral is the only thing I see when I’m with you
Twisted in the midst, I cannot turn myself from you

Tangled so deep, I can’t get out
Cannot sleep, trapped and bound

I am a prisoner within my own mind
I am confined to your tower, there I’m entwined

I want to give in…

Spiral is the only thing I dream when I’m with you
Twisted in a vision, can’t turn images from you

Tangled so deep, I can’t get out
Cannot sleep, I’m trapped and bound

I am a prisoner within my own mind
I am confined to your tower, there I’m entwined

I want to give in…
