Sorrow Is a Wild Horse (FAWM DEMO)

I had another PTSD episode during a drive home from tour on Sunday night. It scared me. The first one in a few months and it was a shock to be back in that mental space, again after feeling so strong for a while. PTSD flashbacks have always felt like a vicious form of Time Travel, to me. Have been trying to describe the experience to myself so I can figure it out. Feel fortunate to have the space to do this self-work.


I am confused again
Is it now or is it then?
Isn’t it strange how Time moves
I am confused again

I don’t want to feel like this anymore

I felt the needle hit the groove
That old familiar song
I felt the push, I couldn’t move
I guess I’ll play along

I don’t want to feel like this anymore

How do i stand my ground
In the middle of a hurricane
How do i ride a wild horse
no saddle and no reins?

I don’t want to feel like this anymore
