My Pill is a hard song to explain, only because everyone has their take on it. It’s about knowing you want something but also knowing it could be the ruination of you, like the line “You were my Pill, you were my enemy”. It could be an addiction, to drink, drugs, gambling…it could be falling in love with someone you know is not good for you. It’s about things that make you feel good but are not necessarily good for you and letting them go is hard. The last chorus has the line. “You are a silent look, you are a confidence still left in me”. Sometimes we don’t have to say anything about a situation, but we can take a lot from it.
“Demons” is a track that explores the light and the dark that exist between our fears. How sometimes fear is a great motivator. Silence or loneliness can sometimes push you into situations you never would usually have entered into, therefore learning something you wouldn’t have learnt. Making connections you wouldn’t have made. Sometimes the darkness we all face can make us revisit our purpose in life. We all have different demons at times, knowing we have to face them. Finding your way out of the dark can only lead the light and good. And once learnt can be great tool in life.
“You Wouldn’t Let Is” is a song about desperately trying to save someone from a situation you know will eventually devour them, no matter how much you try to save them. One minute you are “floating along in a careless world” to eventually feeling you let someone down, even though it wasn’t your problem or your fight. “I left you in the dark, I knew you’d never leave”. Then only to be left with the guilt – could you have done more? Even though you tried!!! Lyrically I always try to leave the end of the song with some hope, and maybe a slightly more comforting feeling with the hopeful thought that maybe they knew you did what you could. “You wouldn’t let it, even though I know you tried”. Sometimes we could all do with that comforting feeling.
