about

Michael had a song he wrote a long time ago called "Inside." He sent it to me in instrumental form and gave me permission to do whatever with it. I only used one passage from the song (about 3-5 seconds) and submitted this.-RM

Inside was originally a tune I wrote for my solo project a few years back. I sent a sample of the song to Randy and what he returned floored me. He took just one of the hooks in the song, expanded it with a killer chorus and bridge, and created this instrumentally and lyrically thought provoking tune. We constructed the drums and bass together on this one, as well as some of the harmonies. The use of space in this tune really drives it home.-MW

lyrics

walk away from the light
over the fence to the other side
look beyond the screen
it's a movie remake scene by scene
with a new cast that's double the size
and they talk so fast it distorts the li(n)es
but the contrast has a beautiful disguise

spilling over the edge
a couple hang on to the ledge
waiting for the kill
waiting on the hill

the still life is washed in grey
where night and day just look the same
tonight, the bottle is in the tide
along the countryside
the waves will make a great divide
and the butterflies will stay trapped inside

one cannot replace
disappear without a trace
throwing paint on a wall
doesn't seem to cover all the shadows, invisible cracks
the color goes from red to black
before you know, the drip is on your back

inside

walk away from the light
over the fence to the other side
look beyond the screen
beyond the big machine
