Singled Out: Venrez's Karma

Today Venrez tells us about the song "Karma" from the band's brand new album "Sell The Lie," which is hitting stories today. Here is the story:

Well there was some serious stimulation behind my writing the lyrics to "Karma". The song was originally titled "Stench", because of the powerful feelings I had when I wrote the song.

I had developed a new friendship over the past 3 years with someone whom I truly liked very much and trusted implicitly. He had some issues with his business partner and they severed their relationship. I had an extra business office in my and happily offered this till they could find a new location. This was a few months before the end of 2009.

This person was observing everything I and my staff did (I also work as a Hollywood movie producer, my latest film bringing Elmore Leonard's Freaky Deaky to the big screen) and came to the conclusion that he wanted in and in bad. They seduced most of my staff behind my back and ultimately I was really thrown for a loop. When I returned to my offices after the New Year holiday the first week of 2010, I came in and many of my staff had come in like thieves in the night and cleared out their desks as well as taking client files.

I was facing having to rebuild my business and fast. I remember sitting at my desk in my office with my head in my hands simply shocked and in pretty bad dismay. But I knew that he would fail. You can steal the goose that lays golden eggs from the owner, but that does not mean the goose will lay golden eggs for you.

I survived and rebuilt my film production company and this person failed and went under 9 months later. So, when I was writing lyrics for the album "Sell The Lie", getting words on paper about this experience was something I needed to do. It would be a combination of cathartic, self-purging of the negative feelings I had towards this person along with the lesson and/or message I wanted to send in the lyrics to the song.

So, even though "Karma" was written with the inspiration of a personal experience and aimed towards that one person who had harmed me, I believe the song sends a message that so many can relate to. What goes around truly does come around.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
