JLXR + Arthur Kody
the story behind the song
by Arthur Kody
I hate that I am expected to be so connected all of the time. I remember when I could just be with myself and my mind. But, now I check in to let everyone know that I’m fine - even if I’m not really fine.
But, sometimes I wanna be lonely. Sometimes I wanna smash up my phone. Sometimes I don’t want the world to own me. ‘Cause in a pixel-perfect world, sometimes I need a weekend alone.
Drowning in the static. Killing time’s a habit. I lie in bed and fill my head with memories I haven’t had yet. Tying to live in the moment. But it’s hard when I don’t own it. I think I just need time alone and maybe I’ll zone in on why I’m so broken.
