Intense. Brooding. Throbbing. Undertones of paranoia and regret, overtones of hope and determination.
Part anthem, part dirge, part trance.
You COULD dance to it, in a zombie-like way.
Not really sure how one might categorize this song. It's definitely in the rock arena, but there's some alt vibe here - Leonard Cohen meets Nine Inch Nails? There's some soul and blues. Many of the ambient-like effects you hear are the product of a hand-made instrument we affectionately call "the bike." Played by drummer/percussionist, Sean Lane. So a little nod to electronica.
Personnel:
David Nyro: piano, keys, all vocals, co-producer
Marc Miller: bass
Sean Lane: drums, percussion, the bike
Jakael Tristram: engineer, co-producer

Lyrics

Waiting For My Life To Start
(Again)
© 2016 By David Nyro

V1:
I’m down here in the bomb shelter,
wond'ring if it’s safe to go outside
I’ve seen a lot of good folks going
down I’ve seen the casualties of pride
I know we’ve all got things we must hide
But it’s time to step outside
I’m waiting for the rising sun,
the starting gun, a sign to be my guide
I know we’ve all got different ways and destinies
The road is long and wide
Chorus:
I’m waiting for my life to start again
I’m waiting for my life to start again
I’m waiting for my life
V2:
I’ve never been particularly brave
But I never thought I was a slave
I was doing time inside my head,
Sentenced by the things that you said
Others came and added to my chain,
Forged in pain, they’re not to blame.
Deliver me from shame
I’m waiting for the birds to sing, to grab the ring
Someone to call my name
Chorus:
I’m waiting for my life to start
again
I’m waiting for my life to start again
I'm waiting
for my life
I’m down here in the bomb shelter
wond'ring if it’s safe to go outside
I’ve seen a lot of good folks going down
I’ve seen the casualties of pride
I know we’ve all got things we must hide
But it’s time to step outside
I'm waiting for the rising sun,
the starting gun, A sign to be my guide
I know we’ve all got different ways and destinies
The road is long and wide
Chorus:
I’m waiting for my life to start again
I’m waiting for my life to start again
I'm waiting for my life
