about

This song was originally written and recorded for my final project during my Independent Music Production course at Seneca College and contains several friends on backup vocals.
I took a different approach to the song to make it a part of this album. It's a little more natural and toned down compared to the original.

lyrics

How can you fix what, don't need fixing?
How can you miss what, is not missing?
How can you feel sorry for yourself when you're not alone?
How can you run away when you're away from home?

If you spend your whole life hating the unknown, the unknown
You'll spend your whole life waiting to know, to know

How's it gonna break, when your heart's never been whole?
(No longer need to be afraid)
How you gonna shake the patterns that you know?
(Stop running, you'll never get away)
Don't stop walking if you're standing at the crossroads
(All alone)
Are you the moss or are you the rolling stone?

If you spend your whole life hating the unknown, the unknown
You'll spend your whole life waiting to know, to know

Step away from your pride, it only poisons your mind
And the time that you bide, will soon wither and die
You can't escape the fire, growing higher and higher

And I know that I've been running so long that
I don't know where to go, so I'm finally facing the unknown.

(Step away from your pride, it only poisons your mind
And the time that you bide, will soon wither and die
You can't escape the fire, growing higher and higher)

Facing the unknown.
Facing the unknown.
