Woe to the Cynic

from by Vanessa Boyd



"Woe to the Cynic" was the first song I wrote for the hajhuj. I worked on it for about 6 hours and came up with a minute and half recording.

Over time, playing live with Kyle, it became a staple for the end of the night and was just a blast to play on stage with high energy.


Woe to the Cynic

Woe to the Cynic who has dared to dream again
You are sensitive and your pain is raw skin.

How’d you cut me down in so little time?
I misunderstood your intentions towards mine.
