“Living Your Life Like This” was lyrically inspired by a conversation between Andrey and our now ex-guitarist about life goals and how daily routine and chasing money can stand on the way of achieving a higher level of satisfaction. The music base of this track existed for over 12 years! Once created by Andrey and his then music collaborator, it hasn’t been touched in over a decade, but every time he listened to the demo, it always sounded fresh and catchy. So Andrey was determined to drive this track home.
Having finished lyrics for the verses and the chorus, Andrey ran out of ideas for the bridge part and went to bed for a daytime nap. When he woke up he had “eat, work, sleep, repeat” in his head and the sounds of army stomps. He thought it would serve as an idea for a new song, but quickly changed his mind when he tried to work it into “LYLLT”. This was the latest demo we had finished before we went into the studio. Surprisingly, we only had to tweak a few lyrics and add a couple of unique elements to it to really bring the song to the next level.
