Soundtrack of a Castaway – Shatter Me

There once was a little boy who was strong and courageous, but there were many around him who were stronger, so he was controlled.  Though he should have been free to be a child and to dream and to grow, instead he was calcified and frozen in a premature adulthood.  An old soul, he wasn’t allowed to be young and he missed much of what is normal and good in childhood.

Then came the pain of separation and of mourning and of loss and all he wanted and all he feared was the shattering.  He loved the darkness but he needed the light.  He needed the light to break him, but he feared that it would destroy him instead.  As he spun in the madness of his mind he ached for the pain and he ran away from it as best he could.  He was of two minds, both pulling him apart.  He sought the balance of that cracking tension.

For he knew that true life, true freedom came not in the glass sphere of dogmatism and fear, but in the open air, in the risk of flight, in the flood of material existence.

Shatter me, or else I’ll die.

“Shatter Me”
(feat. Lzzy Hale)

[Verse 1 – Lzzy Hale:]
I pirouette in the dark
I see the stars through a mirror
Tired mechanical heart
Beats ’til the song disappears

[Chorus:]
Somebody shine a light
I’m frozen by the fear in me
Somebody make me feel alive
And shatter me
So cut me from the line
Dizzy, spinning endlessly
Somebody make me feel alive
And shatter me

[Violin Drop]

Shatter me!
Somebody make me feel alive
And shatter me

[Verse 2:]
If only the clockwork could speak
I wouldn’t be so alone
We’d burn every magnet and spring
And spiral into the unknown

[Chorus]

[Violin Drop]

[Bridge:]
If I break the glass then I’ll have to fly
There’s no one to catch me if I take a dive
I’m scared of change and the days stay the same
The world is spinning but only in gray
If I break the glass then I’ll have to fly
There’s no one to catch me if I take a dive
I’m scared of change and the days stay the same
The world is spinning but only in gray
(Only…)

[Chorus]

[Violin Drop:]
Me…!
Shatter me!
Somebody make me feel alive
And shatter me!
