Common Sense | Single

You may or may not have heard thsi from the previous album "So I Pressed Record," an album i produced at a very early stage of producing and very little time. I used this song that was recorded professionally at STUDIO WEST to make the album have worth.

This song came out great thanks to Steven Brown on drums, and for the amazing production by Andy Walsh, at Studio West.

This song still means something for me.

It was a day where literally everyone i encountered called me (a 19 year old at the time) someone who "Doesn't know any better." And to be honest, i probably didn't. But it simply got me thinking of how EVERYONE thinks different, and how in the very cliche way breaks us down.

I hope this song can reflect these things:
Don't be afraid to try again.
When someone says no to you, try reasoning and understanding why.
A pretty catchy halftime.
Cool whistling (Done by the talented Avalon Young)
and above all, Be someone who doesn't care what people think.

Cheesy....yes. But it's music. Sooooooo deal with it.

-Mason

Track Name: Common Sense
ntro:
*Some whistling action

Verse 1:
I pulled off the string
I cut down the rope
I couldn’t tell why
All the truth was unknown

The Lack of a Cause
A time for reason
What I didn’t know
I should have listened to what’s been told


Chorus:
Common Sense is breaking us down
We only know what
We only see
Common Sense is breaking us down
We only know what
We only see


Verse 2:
My fingers were crossed
He said I was fine
But I fell to the ground
No more time for excuses

I tried again
This time was good
I conquered my fear
But shortly realized my lively-hood
that


Chorus
Common Sense is breaking us down
We only know what
We only see
Common Sense is breaking us down
We only know what
We only see


Bridge:
I thought I was
To good for you
But time, made the world stand still
I thought I was
To good for you
But time, made the world stand still

Chorus
Common Sense is breaking us down
We only know what
We only see
Common Sense is breaking us down
We only know what
We only see

Outro:
