On Overcoming... Lyrics

The original name of the album was "On Overcoming A Terrible Self-Doubt"
Which alludes to the reason why it takes so long for me to complete and release music

It's not for lack of creativity or inspiration
I'm sure I've got 200-plus songs that I've started and are sitting at various levels of completion
It's something much deeper

It's the feeling that nothing I create will ever be good enough or will ever be worth anything

So the impetus to complete these songs and put this album together was that
I found myself in a deep depression that really impaired my ability to function in day-to-day life
And it's something I'm still going through
But a strange thing happens when your entire life feels like it's crumbling underneath your feet
The question of whether or not something I make is good enough sort of dissolves away

Because when everything else is taken away
I can still create

I still can't see the end of the tunnel
I can't see a future where I'm standing in the sunlight and the world is not caving in around me
The only thing I can do is keep creating
And I don't know if I'll ever make a masterpiece, if I'll ever have my magnum opus
If I'll ever be venerated or even remembered
But it doesn't matter

What I create may be worthless
But when I create I am not worthless
