About "The Interference"

This is the sole non-instrumental track in RELOOP. It is also the only one created with a collaborator—namely Haikal Azizi under his moniker, Bin Idris. At first, I only requested a guitar track, but considering that he is also a talented lyricist, I thought I should include a vocal track of his as well. Adopting André Breton's technique of 'automatism' (which was largely influenced by the impending deadline), Haikal said, "I tend to use this technique to write lyrics. One or two words, or even random ramblings are usually enough to trigger the creative process. But in the case of 'The Interference', the inspiration came in an instant because of the deadline. The main theme of this song is existentialism."

Oh what have you done to yourself sweet dear friend of mine
You have turned yourself into a pale horse, a stale pose, a small doze of poison
No longer you walk tall like a man you used to be,
A leaf without a tree, a caged bird that would never be free
A small boat in an angry sea

Enemy is a friend, a friend is an enemy
A glass of remedy, wine and comedy, pleasure and agony
And i see this landscape of green
There is blood all over your screen
Don't take it the wrong way i'm not trying to be mean
But all of these i've seen, a taste for my spleen,
A dust in the wind, a king and a queen, oh where have you been

And your little house is burning down, the pugilist's ready for another round
Is that silent or sound i'm hearing?
I get nervous around this woods, try to get this done as fast as i could
So why don't you just do everything that you should?

Because the hounds are shouting, and the clocks, are counting
The lights are blinding, forever enchanting
Forever we're moving, forever we're grieving
Forever we lose, forever in truce, forever we choose
Forever abused, forever enthuse
Forever confuse

And once we're dead, forever we float no we can't refuse
