  1. Stepping Stone

From the album The War on Common Sense

STEPPING STONE
A driving psych-rock song with jangly guitar riff. Deep Ian Curtis style lead vocals are supported by a fuzzy backing harmony and describe feelings of displacement, isolation and not feeling at home. The thick bass groove lay a foundation for a forward vocal delivery and the final verse breakdown makes way for an explosive finish.

Lyrics

I don't know what to say, I think I'm going grey and now I know it's a stepping stone
Up at the rising sun, afraid of everyone and now I know it's a stepping stone.
And the will to stay is fading day by day and now I know.

Ever deep I fall, down the rabbit hole and I touch my toe on a stepping stone
Trying to face the facts
The monkey on my back
Is taking hold, as I lose control.
Climb out of the hole that's deeper than I know and down I go
Time ain't on my side
And from her I can't hide oh no

When all the pieces of my life descend and each one forms a line
Take my hand and show me where to go before I die.
And now I guess I know
And now I guess I know it's a stepping stone

Fire's burning bright
I look up to the night and now I know, that I gotta go.
Nothing's set in stone. This house is not my home but now I know, I gotta find my own.
Panic and regret
The cross I have to bear is all my own
Reaching for the line
But I’m running out of time time time

Before the pieces of my life descend and each one forms a line
Take my hand and show me where to go before I die.
And now I guess I know
And now I guess I know
And now I guess I know it's a stepping stone
