For Javas (Goodbye)

from by Artem Bank



A goodbye song to an open mic in a coffee shop that was very dear and did not last.


Race past the traffic lights,
To find my way home.
And over at the end of this town,
We've all come to say, to say,


The only holy part of my life,
And I'm parked right out back.
And I've got no idea, How I would've turned out without you.
That's why it's so hard to say, To say,


So I break every law I can without killing myself,
Just to sit and smell this room.
Cause the perfume on these strings only lasts so long,
And I need to keep the fumes.
Locked in my head for the rest of the night,
Because it's only once a week. That I can be sure of myself
And I know that this is where I belong, I can't say,


Race past the traffic lights,
To know of my self inside,
And spill out these words to you,
My heart's just begging to,
Capture the moment in,
The tiny camera lens,
And share to the whole world,
Reality disconnects,
Pedal to floor,
I can't help but stop my breath,
Let all emotion in,
This place I feel safest in,
Keep all the colors close,
I don't want to drift away,
Don't to say...

I am a freelance composer and producer that is based in Baltimore, Maryland. Though I'm still young and new to the scene, I like to think that I've at least made a small and growing mark in history as a composer for video games. My first soundtrack, Star Ruler, was a chance encounter that left me wanting to do more, and ultimately decided my entire career in music from there. ... more
