"pity the siren" was incepted after my coming out in 2021. I felt the beginning of many ends in my personal life, I felt what seemed like my own death, but most importantly, I felt the start of something terrifying and new, but beautiful and promising.
"pity the siren" is a sentiment, a feeling, a state of mind. it is years of deep-seated anxiety, inadequacy, and uncertainty. it is being a bystander in your own life, an altruist who struggles to define their own desires, a fatalist who lacks boundaries in absence of control. it is the rejection of your own reality, the suppression of your identity. it is the life-long journey ahead to make amends with yourself.
I hope these songs help you in some, help you get through the day, the evening, help you feel seen, feel heard, feel loved, feel human.
thank you for all the love and support. who knows where I would be without it.
