Story behind the song
Talk about minimalistic, only 7 tracks make up this entire song, by far the least I've ever used in a production. Everything was recorded via a R0DE NT1-A condenser microphone (save the keyboards), and using only a single guitar. Sometimes less is indeed more.

Lyrics
Seagull, you fly across the horizon, Into the misty morning sun. Nobody asks you where you are going, Nobody knows where you're from. Here is a man asking the question, Is this really the end of the world? Seagull, you must have known for a long time, The shape of things to come. Now you fly, through the sky Never asking why. And you fly all around 'til somebody shoots you down... Seagull, you fly across the horizon, Into the misty morning sun. Nobody asks you where you are going, Nobody knows where you're from. Now you fly, through the sky Never asking why. And you fly all around 'til somebody shoots you down... Seagull, you fly, Seagull you fly away. And you fly away today, And you fly away tomorrow, And you fly away, Leave me to my sorrow. Mmm Mmm Mmm... Seagull, go on and fly. Mmm Mmm Mmm... Fly to your tomorrow. Leave me to my sorrow. Fly...
