about

05 Locked & Loaded
The Joy of the Future -- Looking ahead with anticipation requires vulnerability. I am wary of trusting the object of my heart’s desire. I block my vision of what is to come, fearing the worst. If I dare to hope for what I want, will I be disappointed? Often. But disappointment is not the brick wall it seems to be. I am searching for the path that lays itself out before me where work feels like joy. I am following my bliss wherever it leads me. The ogham fid is Lus for fire and inspiration.

lyrics

LOCKED AND LOADED // days at a time you lay in the dark / under shadow, marked / courting a crime you held in your heart / wading shallow, sharp // locked and loaded / so determined to be lost / locked and loaded / you were itching to be tossed / but I couldn’t let you / I didn’t wanna let you / dive in, dive in, no / I just couldn’t let you / I didn’t wanna let you in // coming undone I slip through the cracks / to the bottom, black / out of the sun and ready to snap / anchor pulling back // locked and loaded / so determined to be lost / locked and loaded / I was itching to be tossed / so I couldn’t let you / I didn’t wanna let you / dive in, dive in, no / I just couldn’t let you / I didn’t wanna let you in // locked and loaded / so determined to be lost / locked and loaded / pushing back at any cost / locked and loaded / I don’t wanna be lost / so I’ll try to let you / I’m gonna try to let you / dive in, dive in, oh / I will try to let you / I’m gonna try to let you in // hope I still know how to swim //
