Here’s an idea that I always liked but never got around to fully recording. It’s another tune in 5/4, which I highly recommend. The first demo is just a drum track from 12.2.04 that changes a bit here and there (it takes a few seconds to kick in btw).
I spent about six months away from this idea before starting to work on it again, until finally reaching a stopping point with the next version dated 8.23.05. The tempo is a good bit faster, plus I’ve added on the fundamental layers as well. It’s fairly close to the final version below, so if you have other things to do I’d just skip to the end and save yourself two minutes and twenty-four seconds.
The last version is from 10.16.05. Basically, I decided to cut the intro and just start right in on the verse, plus mix everything louder I guess. Louder is not necessarily better, I know. But I like loud. Regardless, last is where I left this idea, plus the lyrics below. Thanks for listening.
LOAD IT WITH STYLE
POUR ON THE FAKE
MOAN YOUR DENIAL
POSED AND OPAQUE
RAGE FROM A MALCONTENT
THE HAZE WRITTEN ON YOUR BREATH
BUT TO GO THAT WAY MEANS CERTAIN DEATH
LATE WHEN YOU’RE SMACKING FIVES
YOU FADE BUT YOUR SOUL SURVIVES
YOUR REIGN IS DONE WHEN YOU INFER
THAT YOU’RE WHAT YOU DECIDE
WHAT WILL YOU STAND FOR WHEN THEY COME WITH KNIVES?
