By January this year, I had reached a point where I wasn’t going to musically restrict myself any longer. This is surely healthy, especially as the ideas floating round my head don’t always accomodate guitar and live drum sounds. As with ‘Glad to be Grey’, I started working with some ideas and in the end, I found that synthetic sounds were far more suitable for this particular track.
The lyrical content is about how we think we are as people doesn’t always match our actual behavioural traits. How many times have you met a person who says things like how important punctuality is to them and then the next week, they turn up late? This isn’t preaching, it’s just a gentle reminder that if you are going to say righteous things about yourself, just make sure that what you actually do in practice matches them.
