I Watched The World Burn Without Leaving My Home

December 3, 2021

“I Watched The World Burn Without Leaving My Home,” from the album On The Darkest Day, You took My Hand and Swore It Will Be Okay, is about feeling isolated while receiving a barrage of updates on fires across the globe.

“(A Windy Night)” was recorded during a blackout caused by a windstorm, once again showing wind as a destructive force.

“Waiting to Assess The Damage,” a track that was left off the album, struggles to calculate the extent of loss.

Finally, a vulnerable raw tape loop version of “The Toll on Our Daily Lives” rounds out these pieces.
