about

Insomnia is a strange thing. When I couldn't sleep, I would begin to think about music and my ambitions and become increasingly frustrated both with my inability to accomplish them within the day and the refusal of my body to move onto the next. Being conscious for too long makes one feel like they are drowning in this overwhelming idea of forever. You begin to feel like you've just been living in a very realistic dream where you can't fully control what's going on and all you wish for is to be awakened from the feeling.

I've had quite a few comments on the harmonies during the chorus section. They are odd. I know. I feel they give the song a very awkward feeling, where you almost don't want to hear it. It's quite similar to insomnia, I feel.

lyrics

Insomnia dreams lay heavy on me
Lack of rest reminds me I'm lonely
While a nation is sleeping
I'm broken in two
And everything moves by so slowly

Still I can't sleep again

Wake me up
I am drowning
Wake me up
I am dreaming

Insomnia dreams lay heavy on me
My ambition climbs over the mountains
But I stand in a field
Far from my home
And everything drifts by so slowly

Still I can't sleep again

Wake me up
I am drowning
Wake me up
I am dreaming

about

apollo and Lacuna Nashville, Tennessee

Definitively progressive with use of odd time signatures and key changes, apollo and Lacuna's music takes blues-rock in a whole different direction, taking on the carnal folk style of Iron & Wine, the subtle whispers of Simon & Garfunkel, the beautiful oddities of Sigur Ros, and the blues infused pop of John Mayer. It's clear that apollo and Lacuna reaches for a more evolved musical experience. ... more
