Desperado 2021 GK Contenders - 2nd Wave


Although the bass line is trip-hop beats, there is a smooth, jazzy melody that floats above and tells the story

When small irritations (minutia) grow to a point where you can't take them anymore
A crease in your shirt
The dust I missed
Fingernail dirt
A misspelled list
Too much makeup
Hair out of place
A chip in your teacup
Alcohol trace

It was all minutiae but when I look back
It only took a single straw to break the camel's back
It was all minutiae, nothing at all
But every little irritation put another brick in the wall

. . . . . . . . .

An unmade bed, slammed doors
Was it something I said, personality flaws
A sarcastic joke that led to a painful crack
The straw that broke the camel's back

They were only small things, at first we didn't mind
But they seemed to accumulate and the irritation grew between me and you at an alarming rate


Bridge as outro
