about

Headspace is a very sad song revolving around the final thoughts rushing through an addict's head before they die from an overdose. Addiction is a daily struggle for millions people across the world and yet it's also one of the loneliest. It can get to a point where you become so overwhelmed and consumed by intrusive thoughts that you block out any attempts to reach out and help because everything feels so hopeless, “censoring a face, muffled words caught up in a parade”. It's a melancholy tale about the dangers of rejecting change.

lyrics

Time flies
Living lies
Lay me down
Strip my eyes
Drips and lines
Drowning flys
Hang me up
Pin the crime

I don't wanna play
There's moments I get locked in my own cage
Knocked down by a crave
Fractured all the weeks fade into days
Censoring a face
Muffled words caught up in a parade
Broken and dismayed
Clearing out the rubble with a rake

When I concede
As the life drains from my face
I never wanted things to be this way
And all that I need
Is the drive to try escape
But I'm lost drifting off in my headspace

I don't wanna play
There's moments I get locked in my own cage
Knocked down by a crave
Fractured all the weeks fade into days
Censoring a face
Muffled words caught up in a parade
Broken and dismayed
Clearing out the rubble with a rake

When I concede
As the life drains from my face
I never wanted things to be this way
And all that I need
Is the drive to try escape
But I'm lost drifting off in my headspace

When I concede
As the life drains from my face
I never wanted things to be this way
And all that I need
Is the drive to try escape
But I'm lost drifting off in my headspace
