The Aging Man

I first heard “The Aging Man” by The Great Discord in 2016 while working nights as a sysadmin babysitting a small server farm.

The accoustic intro starting with rain and a piano with a bass guitar coming in didn’t prepare me for the onslaught that came with contralto Fia Kempe’s vocals. And being an aging man (or at least a somewhat masculine enby) myself, the lyrics hit home as well.

It's guiding my end
Leave me, I like
The quiet, the calm
Good wishes leave me cold

So, let me be
(The) Time I have left
I'll spend alone,
Down in the darkness

I highly recommend the rest of their album, Duende, but good luck getting a copy on CD.
