Q: What's the meaning behind blood red tide?

A: I am glad that you asked. There may or may not be some confusion about the meaning of Blood Red Tide, and I hope that, just as with eyes, each individual will take their own meaning from the song. Blood Red Tide was my way of trying to write a song around this story, this idea of being trapped in a cycle that subconsciously you know is poison to you, but you continue in this cycle, compromising your own standards and morals (usually for love), until eventually it takes you over and you metaphorically drown in it. The story that centered around that idea is the premise of Blood Red Tide. It is about a guy who falls for a girl that becomes a junkie(making the term "Blood Red" Tide more literal than you might imagine). The first half of the song is about both the internal and external struggle of the guy who wants nothing more than to save the one that he loves, but his longing to love and be loved unconditionally leads him into the same cycle. The second verse picks up with the guy delving deeper and deeper into the adverse lifestyle of his lover and losing sight of what he originally intended for the relationship. That leads you into the final phase of the story where he reflects upon the damage that the choices they have made has brought to they and their loved ones. He then finds this acceptance in his own mind that despite what the world would tell him, as long as he is with her(no matter what the circumstance) he is happy. This ends with them "suffocating"(and ill leave it up to you whether to take that literally or metaphorically) in this cycle that they have built together. Thank you for inquiring! I really hope this helps! Gage
