M…F... I’ll be back from the dead soon……

The transition of a lifetime actually has a soundtrack. Every time I heard this song certain things would scream out at me highlighting points of my current life. I’ve highlighted the lines in BOLD that spoke to me revealing my thoughts of the song.

“Hollow Moon (Bad Wolf)”

I’ve been running from it all my lifetime

The fear of and safety of working a job with guaranteed pay and stability.

There’s nothing wrong with you, I’m searching for my right mind

I know I seem odd and out of place, thats because Im not able to be who I really am. Im looking for it…

Oh, you should’ve seen it they were resting on the restless

Yea, a lot of bosses lean heavily on their employees

This happened, literally — woke up I was headless, I woke up I was headless

One day I realized… How did this happen. I’m not ME.

[Chorus:]
Ima make a deal with the bad wolf so the bad wolf don’t bite no more
Ima make a deal with the bad wolf so the bad wolf don’t bite no more
Ima make a deal with the bad wolf so the bad wolf don’t bite no more
Ima make a deal with the bad wolf so the bad wolf don’t bite no more
Ima make a Ima make a bad wolf Ima Ima bad wolf Ima make a bad wolf Ima Ima
Ima make a deal with the bad wolf so the bad wolf don’t bite no more

You’re all still here

I’m going to feed my inner needs so I’m not this bad, out of touch, bitchy version of myself.

M….rf….r I’ll be back from the dead soon

I’ve got a plan and you better believe It’s gonna stick this time. IM GOING TO MAKE IT!

Just watch.

I’ll be watching from the center of the hollow moon

I’ll see my old life in the shadows

Oh, oh my God I think I might’ve made a mistake

Why did I wait this long?????

Waiting patiently was waiting taking up space

I am just filling a spot on the board of many dots. Just another ant passing the crumb. Just living in my little box earning just enough to keep my little box.

We are waiting taking up space

What is everyone waiting on? Go do awesome things people! Your dying day is coming whether you see it coming or not. Stop just waiting for it.

[Chorus]

The earth below is above my feet when the clock is laughing at me

The clock is ticking people.

When copy cats and the lazy brats are the last thing I want to see

I don’t have patients for fake people or BS anymore. I got through a lot of my insecurities, can you?

No, my enemy is a friend of mine in a friendly place to be seen

I may not be who I used to be. I may have new friends and lose some old ones. Also I can coexist, but sooner or later the truth will be seen.

Hey, you know I’ll run away for a couple years just to prove I’ve never been free

I’ll keep this job in hiding only as long as I need to.

They will never find me here [x4]

Yeah

Ima make a deal with the bad wolf so the bad wolf don’t bite no more [x8]

Just taking the time to pour this from my head out through hands is causing me to feel all of the anxiety I’ve built up over the last year leading up to now. Im taking the early steps in my new life and I can’t wait to keep going. I dont’ think the writer intended what I get from the song, but it will forever be my transition song.
