MESSAGES FROM SWARM
5.7.21 - ALPHA & OMEGA
Alpha & Omega was written when I thought that I had "exhausted my creativity". After writing Fury, I was stuck being unable to write anything new for months. I hadn't yet tried recording my own vocals for my music - I was just creatively stuck. I thought I had lost the ability to write!
One day, after I finally told my team and mgmt that I hadn't been able to write anything new yet, and really vented my frustration to them, I finally had the breakthrough. I knew it was special. Venting and talking to someone was a vital part of this breakthrough, as it has been with my mental health. Learn from my mistakes :)
Lyrically, Alpha & Omega is about the voice in the back of your head that tries to tell you that you aren’t worthy of being happy; that your current circumstances and mindset is all you’ll ever know. It lies to you and tries to convince you that you can never escape it. This is something I have struggled with for as long as I can remember, and especially during the making of this song.
Having something so personal out in the world for people to hear is very important to me, because I know many can relate to it in some way. I’m living proof that there is hope and I want people to see me as a human, not just as an artist.
Thank you for listening!
