The Cody Show: Still ToY (Up at Night)

Last summer I really got hit hard with some 9/11 flashbacks of memories that I'd basically convinced myself weren't entirely of reality. In the midst of dealing with those night-terrors, I decided I'd make a movie/music-video/modern art short film on the nights whenever I'd not sleep. I wonder how much if at all working on this piece helped me deal with my issues over the event, but it did make me focus on it, which is still something I am struggling with, as I avoid all news pieces and specials about 9/11 this weekend. Anyway, here it is:




I've never published the full version of the song, mainly because I struggled with being okay with the lyrics for so long. It is what it is though, and as I come to terms with my guilty feelings over my 9/11 experience (rightly or wrongly, whatever), I am okay recognizing them in lyric form too. Here's the full song (right click to download).

Awesome song man. Too bad it has to deal with your experience on that awful day.

Well done Superstar. Love how you pieced it all together. Hope your life won't imitate your art, unless of course, you are a phoenix rising from the flame. If not, all is wasted.

You've got this thing going on that reminds of the Japanese band, Dah Da Candy. The song is kinda shoegaze, yet has this all-American sound to it... and it's sensitive too. Really nice! I hope it has helped you deal with things.
