Steady, lagging, song about a psychopath, someone who is mentally unstable, dysfunctional mind...underlying "voices in your head" throughout track and insane guitar solo- Good to describe a demented villain
Tension filled song with a spacey vibe that starts off with a lone marimba, sparse acoustic guitar, and a barely audible perculating synthesizer that gradually grows in volume and ferocity until it feels like the mother ship is about to land right next to you!

Etherial and sad...Opens with fluttering isolated classical piano riff representing a flickering flame.

Thinking about giving up, things seem hopeless, the fire has dwindled down to a flickering ember.
