Standing Still

Story Behind The Song

The lyrics to this song were inspired by my personal reflection that as much as I try to do things on my own, I can never succeed without the help of others. Thus, I began feeling that no matter what I my heart I was never progressing....and thus, Standing Still.

Standing Still

I feel enraged
I am breaking
Im enslaved
To my creation

Look in my eyes
There's no mistaken
This is the life that
I've created

I see with brand new eyes
I am standing still
I'm wasting so much time

As the days go by
I lose a little light
It's me against myself
I've forgotten how to fight

I see with brand new eyes
I am standing still
I'm wasting so much time


I am standing still
I am standing still
I've been standing still

Wow - fantastic sound! Love the heavy guitar tone both rhythm and lead, and the vocals are spot-on. Well-arranged and has a mountain of potential for licensing, if that's the artist/band's interest.

Hey! I really dig your new song, Standing Still, very moving and powerful. Awesome job, your vocals sound good here, a nice edge to it but not too "hard", works really great with the song.

Soul Bind journeys through the self reflective angst representative of the human condition, the very essence of life itself. It was once famously said by a writer/observer that life is a long period of unhappiness interspersed with occasional flight of happiness.

You lyrics, production, instrumentation, vocals, mood and execution collectively represent triumphant success!
