This one is pretty abstract, I guess. I have this technique I go to, especially on days where I don't have any particular inspiration, where I just come up with maybe a riff and/or lick and/or chord progression and hum out a melody, then just say consonants and vowels with it, then I write those down (as nonsense words) then go back in and add words with similar pronunciations in a way that makes some kind of sense.
That's where this one came from. It always leads to some "cleverness," but these are the songs that I generally dislike at first, because they're literally as new to me as they are to you the listener on the first time.
On the upside, this video is the very fist take. #nailedit
Apparently, there was a football game today too. Can someone tell me who won?
Pity got the call Even with the ways she counted on The loss of face, she held on Begrudging of her flaw Looking for the king she heard of, all The subtle points were fouled on So many would drop the ball And open up the pain she cowered from We'd want to send them both, but they're gone Entwined eternally Despair bespoke, it ends in draw It forced the ghost they brought on They didn't live for free Gave a shot impossibly Mediocrity - where everybody goes Wasting time while it spins on Pivoting on a long time gone And you're listening to me It'd really gone too far Nobody really could have counted all The ups and downs, and fight ons Pity I got the call I had no patience for the carnival No one blinked, the axe swung I really lost them all They didn't think they'd heard that loud of a Spoken note -- the one they soured on So many would drop the ball And find a way to sleep forever I was with them in that boat, but they're gone They didn't live for free Gave a shot impossibly Mediocrity - where everybody goes Wasting time while it spins on Pivoting on a long time gone And you're listening to me They didn't live for free And you're listening to me
