"Majesty is a note to self: It reminds you to not lose yourself in your own ambitions, pressure and opinions of others. Though you might be putting all your energy in something you really like, too much is still too much. It tells the listener (and also the writer) to take time to process what's done and recharge to be able to keep enjoying that thing you like to do the most”



Could you find me a seat?
Because I don’t know how much longer
I will last on these feet

And may it fit just right
cause the way I see it, it will take long before I’ll
be the victor of this fight

Could you lend me a pen?
To write down some thoughts that occurred
as the clashing began

A book I want to create
Just look through some pages to guide me home as
another sword clashes with another blade

Take me back, take me home
Could you tuck me in a craddle?
Rewind the babymobile
Tranquilize my bones?

And as blood dripped down
The velvet throne I seated
Scalped without a crown
I lost the battle, to futility I now have to bow

(Take me back, take me home
Could you tuck me in a craddle?
Rewind the babymobile
Tranquilize my bones?)

Promises I have to make
Deadlines never seem fake
Standing on the brink of losing it all
People with which I should speak
Concepts must never be weak

One by one leaves will start to fall

On April 12th 2019, YVI released his debutalbum. ... more
