This song was "inspired" by the lack of inspiration and insomnia I was feeling due to a second bout of anxiety and depression. This "second bout", was caused by the onset of "tinnitus"...the constant noise in my ears. The lyrics ring true...


Chorus I:
I’m Tryin'
To keep myself inspired
In spite of feeling tired and blue

I’m Tryin’
To keep myself from cryin'
Myself to sleep at night ’n
Thinkin' about you

Verse I:
My head rings but my heart sings
It's such a funny thing
‘Cause when you lose a thing you love
You start from the beginning

Chorus repeat

We all should know
What we're livin' for
If you don't, it'll show
You'll get cut twice
Like three blind mice

No I won't
Yes you will
No I won't
It's your fate
You're too late...

Ooh we whistle and wail ... repeat out
