I needed to get away from the track "Wasted Time" for a bit, let it simmer for a while, while my mind digested something else, so I started working on another song, working title, "The Knife". I have a feeling that this song is going to become the central idea of the record, the song that most lyrically toys with "the knife" and thus sounds most like what I am taking from this analogy, this romantic love affair. I thought I would show a work in progress, where I am at with just a piano part and a vocal line before the song really starts to take shape. I thought it would be interesting to hear the skeleton, the initial spark that had me pushing to write more, the idea as it was when it was born. I am not sure yet if the song is going to take on a prettier tone or a more haunting or horrific one, I am not sure what is going to continue coming out of me and how fast, but I am liking the direction so far, I am liking where it is going, this current beneath the ice. Though the images of the frozen creek don't directly relate to this particular song, this is the creek where for years I derived much inspiration, the place where I would just sit for hours and settle, and think and write. I have a real fond attachment to this particular location for many reasons so I thought I would show it.
