about

This track was, funnily enough, made almost a year before its release. I planned on making it a music video but I could never come up with anything to go along with it, so I eventually just decided to release it without a video. The music was heavily inspired by Norrsken's "Little Lady" because I found there music very heavy and psychedelic but pop at the same time, and I wanted to do something along those lines since they didn't make very much music. The lyrics are about how time seemed to have sped up once I entered college, and it seemed like I never got anything done because what used to feel like wasting an hour online felt like only a few minutes. It's unfortunate that this feeling of sped up time increased over the year, and that it took me a year to release this song in the first place. I hope time slows down for me in the future, and if you feel the same as I do, I hope the same happens to you! :)
The artwork was based heavily on Magma's first album's cover, because I felt like the helpless people-like-things weren't on there enough, and I felt confident that my lack-luster drawing skills could do something that easy.

lyrics

Time is flying too fast for me
I can't keep up with reality
Don't tell me it's already Friday
Soon it's gonna be May

Chorus:
Before I know it
I'm gonna be gone
Someone stop time!
You've got to hold on

"What's wrong," people say
I'm pretty sure it's still yesterday
Am I insane or just too tired
I feel like soon I'm gonna have to retire

Chorus (x2):
Before I know it
I'm gonna be gone
Someone stop time!
Gotta hold on
