Behind the songs

Someday

One of the first Achromatics original songs “Someday” might be more relevant now that when it was written a year ago.

The lyrics describe the desire to improve yourself but feeling frustrated and worried that you won’t succeed. Ultimately the song ends with a positive sentiment: that even though success can feel so far away, you just have to keep trying and never give up. As long as we keep trying, we can’t fail.

The concept of self-improvement can be extended to improving your community, other people’s lives, and the world. And lately, our world is facing dark times. It’s frustrating and scary, but the most terrifying idea is to throw in the towel and stop trying to improve things. As long as we’re still trying to make it better, we haven’t failed.

This is “Someday”

Light ink upon a page,
routine to start the day,
imagining how far it will go
before the unknown
will find it’s way…

Into the world behind
the corners of the mind
Attempt to keep emotion in check
and try to forget
the double bind

How do they know it won’t be the same again?
A repetition over from the “start”
How do they know that a fate can change
if there’s a seed of doubt within the heart?

Grey cushion on the floor,
prostration twice before,
attempt to find the peace in it’s claim
No other’s to blame
for that closed door…

To solitary rooms,
despairing for the tune,
the strictness of a cruel metronome
that cannot atone
the past too soon

How do they know it won’t be the same again?
A repetition over from the “start”
How do they know that a fate can change
if there’s a seed of doubt within the heart?

Give something more
until the battle’s won.
Not like before;
constantly present
to dedicate…
Changes are never done.
Time to create
future from the past

…someday.
