Hey everybody,

It's been awhile since I played along here and it feels good to be sharing with y'all again.

This is the title song off of my upcoming album, "The Wicked"

Here are the lyrics:

I sleep all day, but I'm still tired
The world is like a glowing wire
Reaching for that pure desire
Grasping my own hands on fire
It's free to start a habit,
but you pay the price to kick it
Thrashing through that thicket
there ain't no rest for the wicked

Evening and the sun it bleeds
Leaking like some lonely need
I thought all my slaves were freed
I found them drowning in the reeds
It's free to start a habit,
but you pay the price to kick it
Thrashing through that thicket
there ain't no rest for the wicked

Morning and the sun is green
Crackling like some cold machine
Curving on that cruel careen
Smashing into smithereens
It's free to start a habit,
but you pay the price to kick it
Thrashing through that thicket
there ain't no rest for the wicked

🙏 Thank you, my friend

I liked your music, it made me move my head to the rhythm of the song and I enjoyed it. I found this sentence of the song "there is no rest for the wicked." because it made me think that the people who cause evil must live forever tortured by the memories of their actions. It's good that you share your way of doing art with us, greetings.

Thanks for your good words @iraidamatheus I checked our your rad art, too. Following you! :)

Awesome man! This a great original track. The lyrics are amazingly introspective. I'm just sitting back here realizing, "Yup, I freely started that habit and have had to deal with the consequences of it." It feel like it's something we all know but kind of don't. Not sure if that makes sense but I love the way your song and lyrics have made me think about how it applies to my own life. I think that's the best kind of art. Stuff that really inspires others to think about their own life.

Thanks again for sharing! Wicked good song. Enjoyed your performance of it. Cheers!

Thank you for your support 🙏

How many albums have you released already? You look like you have a lot of experience in singing and playing :) I am not an expert but it sounds like a country music, right? If it's not then I'm sorry :) Your voice is perfect for country music. It has this nice touch to it.

I like your lyrics as well, especially the first sentence as I feel the same recently. It doesn't matter how much I sleep but I seem to be very tired all the time..

Thank you for sharing! It was my pleasure to listen to you.

Thanks, Delish. I'm more of a rock singer-songwriter. I don't sound like Neil Young but I range from acoustic ballads to noisy rock just the same. This one is more of a rock anthem when I play with my band. This upcoming record is my fourth. I've also released a number of singles recently.

So I got it COMPLETELY wrong and I am sorry for that :)
