about

I had most of the lyrics for this song written down way before I had any music figured out, which is an unusual occurrence for me. I'd initially planned to set the words to a poppy, upbeat tune, but didn't end up liking the experiments I tried with that. Anyway, long story short, after one day stumbling upon a melancholy lil acoustic guitar loop I liked playing, I tried singing the words on top of that instead, the rest is historical.
Accompanying photo: Candid shot of young lovers on the beach in Salem, MA. Really has nothing to do with this song as far as I can tell.

lyrics

You can take back whatever you want of yours
And I don't think you have much that belongs to me
I can't say that I never meant to hurt no one
But I can say that it wasn't my priority
There's no reason at all
There's no reason at all

I am curious about your thoughts on universal justice
I enjoy hearing some of what you have to say
Whether I believe you is secondary to the point
Tomorrow I'll forget what your point was anyway
There's no reason at all
There's no reason at all

I am happy & evil
I am happy & evil
I am happy & evil & that disproves you all

You can think whatever you like of them
It might hurt them but they hurt anyway
And meanwhile, in the time it takes to break your body & mind
I'll begin another flawless day

I am happy & evil
I am happy & evil
I am happy & evil & that disproves you all

God is watching but It's helpless to stop this
God is watching but It's helpless to stop this
God is watching but It's helpless to stop this
Your God is watching but It's helpless to stop Me
Your God is watching but It's helpless to stop Me now
