Written by Amy Benedict, Ian Osborne

A dam behind my eyes,
Damn this quiet night
Pain dancing on my brain
Fire in my throat
burning it’s way out

I think it’s gonna break
I’m scared of tears
and I don’t wanna be anywhere

I try to take a breath to slow it down
I can’t get out, I can’t get out, I can’t get out

Are these hours or minutes
Is my sanity finished
My body has a limit
The pain feels infinite ugh
High and then I’m so low,
They say I’m fine and I don’t think so
Am I gonna be ok,
Am I gonna be ok

Are these hours or minutes
Is there even a difference

Are these hours or minutes
Is there even a difference

A war inside my mind
Could use some sleep tonight
Shadows dancing in my brain
Silence like a flood washing it all out

Memory invasion
Flash of suffocation
Anxiety reaction
Distraction
time around me moving slow
It grabs ahold and won’t let go

I try to take a breath
To slow it down
I can’t get out, can’t get out, can’t get out

Are these hours or minutes
Is my sanity finished
My body has a limit
The pain feels infinite ugh
High and then I’m so low
They say I’m fine and I don’t think so
Am I gonna be ok,
Am I gonna be ok

Are these hours or minutes
Is there even a difference

Are these hours or minutes
Is there even a difference

One of a place of indigent people, a burial grounds are also called potter’s field to this day. I resonate with that as someone who feels like they’ve never really belonged anywhere. Between abuse and moving around and just finding a place to belong. I’ve never felt like I’ve had a place to belong, so I wanted my music to reflect that. Something that other people who also feel like they belong in a potter’s field, to resonate with. My hometown? I am proudly from Fresno, California. I relocated to Austin, Texas around 2013, after a very traumatic divorce. I struggle with PTSD, alcoholism, all those things that most people usually don’t want to talk about. They want to hide under the rug and pretend that they’re okay and I did that for a while until I had to write music. I had to get out those feelings and put them on paper. I never thought I’d be here. I never thought I would be putting music out to the public. It just evolved. It just happened. Let’s see. What year was it? It was 2017. I was offered a position as an intern in Franklin, Tennessee. I worked at a studio. It was an amazing experience learning what the music business is and how to navigate it, and again, thinking I was gonna be a writer and not an artist, but something kept nagging me and it was my stories, the stories of feeling lost, feeling unwanted and needing to share that with others. I truly believe it was my faith but also music that got me through, so I wanted to produce music that could get others through a very difficult and dark time, but I also love EDM, so I’m like, how can I combine the two sounds together? It’s all a discovery process. I feel like any artist that’s trying to get their music out, they want that perfect track out that’s gonna be a number one right away, and that really doesn’t happen. You just have to put out what you have. I think if we’re always just true to ourselves as artists, we’ll put out unique music, and that’s what I try to do. I was at a writing conference once and one of the mentors said we are a makeup of everything we’ve ever listened to and like. And I thought about that. I’m like, what was my inspiration? My most recent inspirations definitely come from Illenium. The last two tracks: “Just for Tonight” and “Hours or Minutes” were definitely inspired by his bold sound but yet textured lyrics. Uh, Slander is another one that I just discovered, and love Slander. Chainsmokers is a no-brainer. I mean, how could anyone in the EDM community not love them? And then Halsey definitely, um, her blowing up after doing a single with Chainsmokers was just an inspiration to me to be a woman in EDM and to know that if I am true to myself in my art and what drives me artistically, then I can, I can be myself in this industry. It’s very male-driven and that’s great but I think there’s room for us. I think there’s room for women to tell their story in this music. As a disclaimer for every artist you’ve ever listened to, they always say like, subscribe, and comment. Why they do that is because independent artists depend on you to survive. They depend on you for their inspiration to keep writing. I ask my tribe, please subscribe, reach out, let’s talk, let’s text what you’re going through. I want to create a community. So, yes, like, subscribe, comment, and share. If you’re watching this, you’ve probably listened to my music and maybe you like it up to this point, so I thank you for listening and I want to say welcome to the tribe. Welcome to Pottersfield. You resonate because you’ve been through a lot and I thank you for listening and I can’t wait to include you in this journey, wherever this takes me. My name is Amy Benedict and I am Pottersfield.”
