Neg.

about

This song represents pushing negative energy away with full force. I felt that abbreviating the word "negativity" and simply titling the song, "Neg." gives the word and emotions connected to it, less power.

lyrics

I am representing everything I've ever learned
And deep down under my skin
Deep inside, from within
That disease hasn't conquered me

Away from me
Away from me
Away from me
Away from me
Negativity

Like a babe afraid, I’m looking for comfort
In my mother, in my sisters
But these days
I find, I am my own
And everything’s wrapped up in you
My lover, my friend
My lover, my lover
Part from me not
Always with me stay

Away from me
Away from me
Away from me
Away from me
Negativity

It’s a tired conversation
Endless questions filled with doubt
A stifled scream, I can’t find my way out
Of the piece, you never gave me mine to say
And I was quiet all those years
Never got in your way
So now your ignorance is lost in bliss
Swooping in to feel my kiss
And hear my stories, so long as, they are brief

A colder heart would say goodbye
Instead I’ve chose to pacify
And build my world around a lie that eats at my brain

Away
Away
Away
Away

Away from me
Away from me
Away from me
Away
Away
Away
