No Tomorrow

This weeks song came out of a personal experience of watching a friend who has struggled with addiction for years slip once again. Every time they seem to have put the past behind and convince themselves they are in control, the demons come knocking in. But with addiction comes a lot of things. As an addict, there is nothing more important that feeding that addiction. If you try to convince them to put a stop to the “good times,” you become an enemy. The years of feeding that addiction has made them into experts in blaming others and laying the guilt even on the best of friends. I always try to help my friends in anyway I can. But there comes a time that friendship can become toxic and starts to take a toll on you. If you are in this situation, you need to just simply walk away and get some distance. This can sound cruel, but the fact is, you cannot help the ones who are not willing to help them selves. And even more so, you might put your own emotional and mental health at risk.

So heavy song once again. The mood of the song kind of called for more simplistic arrangement. So I decided to go with just the acoustic guitar and the voice on this one. Somehow it feels to me that the message comes across better this way.

If this weeks song touches you, or someone else you know, share it with the world. Let people know they are not alone. And don’t forget that you can download this weeks song from my Bandcamp page HERE. Let me know what you think of the song.
