Committing suicide isn’t technically complicated, but if it was easy to hang or to poison your self, or to jump from deadly heights, we surely wouldn’t hear it on the news as much as we do now. The hardest part of committing suicide is to have the guts to do it and to find the exact reason, while actually it’s totally irrational.
Through their first single, Like Life’s Easily Ended, AFFEN intends to capture the phenomenon of suicide attempts among us. Depressive at its first lyrics, it's describing the loss of hope and the lack of destination, the denial of the darkness that's haunting, and the profound pressure on self.
Despite being lyrically depressive, this song upbeat rhythm is AFFEN's effort to say that no pain is too painful and nothing will hurt enough to make us lose our optimism. They take 'rain' as a blessing that will cure pain and bring light.
At the end of the song, AFFEN put a nice touch of happiness through cheering noises and clapping hands to represent the happiness of life that people may have forgotten. This goes well with the part where they add a dash of sounds from glockenspiel, and a small composition at the middle of the song which slightly sounds like waltz. One of the member of AFFEN who wrote the lyrics to this song, states that Like Life’s Easily Ended is a sarcastic way of saying ‘putting an end to life is optional, but life’s beautiful and it will stay that way’.
Further definisation of the single Like Life’s Easily Ended is for the listener to choose. Fight ‘till the last hope, because when you commit suicide people laugh at the top of their lungs. Enjoy.


Like Life's Easily Ended :

Walking next to you
With nowhere to go
Tear the nights apart
And the gloom always come
I hold you tight, I gaze your smile for a while,
And I whisper you, words of desperation

It’s gonna rain
It’s gonna rain

We're dancing without rhythm
And pretend the light is bright
When our souls and bodies are deeply tormented
Like life's easily ended
Like life's easily ended
And I guess...

Talking about genre, these guys just can't make it to choose one. They experiment, they make noises, they may rock today and make tomorrow jazzy. But still, AFFEN has their own particular style that will refuse to leave people's head.
