Song Review – Trust Me (Everything Is Going To Be Fine)
The silence is broken from the right, then the left, as we’re awoken from our catatonic state. The music kicks in, and Skipping Stone is at the helm. From the onset we’re pulled into a rush of energy that can only be described as a vortex of sound. With a heaviness that rolls in like a steam shovel, “Trust Me” makes its presence known. A well-produced song, in my humble opinion, Skipping Stone shows us how it’s done.
Lyrically, it depicts the shadow of the illusion of security we create in our minds when we ignore the symptoms. At least it does to this listener’s ear. How we keep telling ourselves that everything is going to be fine as the walls tumble down around us. When all our efforts to present a façade of wellbeing comes crashing down and we’re left bear boned and exposed. If we can accept who we are in the flesh, then there is a glimmer of hope.
It’s these kinds of songs that leave their mark. Those who challenge us to break out and show our vulnerable side. Skipping Stone brings it’s A game to the party. Don’t believe me? Just ask Bona Lisa.
