After 7 months of questioning my passion, my goals and even considering giving up few times, I finally grabbed my microphone and recorded a song.
The song has had her cameo on my album “Hikikimora” which I released this year. I turned this song into a 2-minute interlude, but this time it’s coming as full length song, just how it was supposed to be to begin with.
This song is about my struggle with passion. How I just can’t seem to let go even if it hurts.

Birds of Prey
I feel like giving up but I know I won't
It's so easy to do but this is my home
why am I here
why am I here for (yearning)
why can't I let it go?
once and for all
right above my head
lurk birds of prey
I have chosen this path, there is no turning back
I'm following the clouds but they flow way too fast
why am I here
why can't I leave (you behind)?
why can't I let it go? (will this hunger of mine)
once and for all (be ever gratified)
right above my head (is that just in my mind?)
lurk birds of prey (am I wasting my time?)
Why can't I walk away (I don't know what to do)
Is it worth the pain? (I'm feeling like a fool)
Still day by day (can anything come true)
I run from the birds of prey (will I still get to you?)
fight so hard til I bruise and bleed
til the dream itself has ceased to please
still a part of me don't want to leave
will the birds of prey catch me
