TUNE Bloodhound - If This Is The Way It Is
Track 10 on the debut album 'Fragile Skeleton'. This is the last track on the album and rounds it off as a kind of warm hug at the end of a period of turmoil. This song includes the lyric that poses as the album's title too. If This Is The Way It Is is a song about having an overwhelming amount of issue that you offload to crowd of unknowing people, and this be at a gig, in front of people you don't know, in a meeting or appointment. It is about offloading these issues without wanting to affect family and loved ones and these issues continuing in the protagonists head despite the noise of life surrounding them. In the end, there is an acceptance of this way of life but a hope that one day it might end.
