What you gonna do with your restless mind?
You can feel it rolling over
And you’re acting strange
You can feel all the ways
That you’re using up time
Yeah you feel it in your gut
Like you’re itching inside
What you gonna do with your restless mind?

And what you gonna do with that limited heart?
See, what you’ve done with it lately
Sort of seems like a waste
Cause you let it become a vestigial part
Now it’s pumping out of habit
And it’s begging you to start
What you gonna do with your limited heart?

I suggest you find another way
I do believe there is another way

What you gonna do when you lose control?
When nothing ever seems to go your way
Is that when you lose yourself, acting all cold?
Is that the day you curse your luck, selling your soul?
Is that what you do if you lose control?

And tell me what you’ll do if you get what you want
If everything you ever needed came your way
Would you forget what you learned
Feeling nonchalant
About your restless mind and your limited heart
Now tell me what you’ll do if you get what you want

I suggest you find another way
I do believe there is another way

Notes
I’d like to begin by saying how happy I am that it is September. Summer’s got all the flash and glamor, but Autumn has the substance. This I have always felt to be true. So bring it on, Autumn. I’m counting every colored leaf starting now.

This week’s song is all about layered vocals. So as not to distract from them, the only instrumentation is a bass-guitar and some simple drum programming. The tune is about being stuck in your ways. Getting stuck in a pattern is partially about getting too comfortable, and partially about fear of losing control. When that happens to me, I get restless, yet hesitant at the same time. The mind itches for new things, but the heart shields itself for fear of its vulnerability. The idea here is that there is always a new way to go about things that you haven’t thought of yet.

I have been told that Bandcamp now has an app for the iOS and Android! For all I know, this has existed for a long time. I tend to be behind on this sort of thing. The reason this is cause for celebration is that now there is yet another way for you to enjoy Mount Everest! So if you’re on your tablet or mobile device, got to the App store and get it because it is cool!

Here’s hoping your Monday doesn’t totally suck.
