about

This song came about because I was tired of writing super hard riffs and leads in Tux Guitar and having to learn them back. So instead I wrote a fairly easy repetitive song with once bitch of a nonsense clean part in towards the end. I wanted a spacey chordal vibe that really gave the bass room to breathe but hadn't really (and still haven't really as of writing this if I'm being honest) figured out how to go about writing clean guitar parts. Dalton Hill killed it on the bass on this track, gave it tons of feel and really added to the mix. Once it was written however we realized it would need singing over the chorus, it was too melodic not to! After much debate it was decided I would sing leads with Dalton Hagen doing some harmonies and all of the screaming. Dalton Hagen had come up with some catchy chorus lyrics and we co-wrote the rest of the song. I'm not much of a vocalist but we did what we could with what we had and I then decided to write a clean solo over the last clean section towards the end and call it a day! The song title really has no meaning, Grey Poupon is just fancy and I like mustard, although not really Grey Poupon so ponder that for a bit and find some deeper meaning. - Cody

lyrics

What will it take for me to find my way?
I don't think that I can take this life another day!
Every single time I try
to figure out the reasons why
sleep always seems to pass me by
I get trapped in my head and the cycle continues.
It feels like I've become lost,
a captain who's ship has already been sunk.
I fear that I'm drowning.
I cannot breathe and my vision is clouding!

The sick seduction of your twisted construction;
I can't focus trapped inside a web of mixed emotions.
These thoughts are flowing through my mind
slaughtering all hope that they can find.

These problems;
I know I have the strength to solve them but I'll never get anywhere if I keep on stalling.
No matter
how far I've fallen
I'll gather
all hope and hold on.

It feels like I've become lost;
a captain who's ship has already been sunk.
The sharks are surrounding.
I'm bleeding out and my heart won't stop pounding!

The sick seduction of your twisted construction;
I can't focus trapped inside a web of mixed emotions.
These thoughts are flowing through my mind
slaughtering all hope that they can find.

The sick seduction of your twisted construction;
I can't focus trapped inside a web of mixed emotions.
These thoughts are flowing through my mind
maybe there is still hope to find in time.
