The song ‘Way Too Deep’ tells a story about a woman who is possessed by her demons, she is perpetually trapped in her head. The heavy imagery ‘every night, she cries herself to sleep’ immediately builds the tension and continues the sad imagery of this woman ‘praying for somebody, she’ll never meet’.
Cosima Bellamacina: ‘I wanted to show the rawness of what it’s like to be depressed and live in a life of sadness. It’s so real, and this song is devoted to the point that if we stay negative, nothing will ever happen to us. Being way too deep in thought, constantly is a living nightmare and that the woman in the song drags everyone around her down. A woman functioning without any kind of magic in her life, she’s all alone, but ultimately she does it to herself. ‘
‘I was inspired by the people in my life, myself, my own haunted dark thoughts. It’s about releasing this inner pain of sadness that comes with a deep way of thinking that isn’t healthy. It’s a personality trap.’
This song is an alternative soft pop sound with a heavy rocky chorus. ‘Way Too Deep’ written by Cosima Bellamacina and Benny Bellamacina, produced by Steve Fenton and Benny Bellamacina.
