about

This tune sounds pretty odd to me at the moment, probably because I’ve been away from home and separated from a lot of my “go to” crutches for TS@aW. I was set up in my folks front room and only had a 58 mic with me, which meant that if I’d recorded any guitar/uke they’d not have sounded very nice.

Enter the vocoder, step sequencer and a variety of different effects on the vocal.

This is also mixed on a pair of headphones, which I reckon is why it’s pretty dark, heavier in the lower mids than I’d normally have. I’m kinda liking the vibe right now, but doubtless that will change as soon as I hit the publish button…

lyrics

I want to break out,
I want to be free,
I want to take over all the things that possess me.
I want to reach out and hug the world,
I want to live a life that I can call absurd.

I want to learn,
I want to bleed,
I want to reach out and show the world,
All the love that it could feel.
I'm not attracted to the void,
Not a school ground kid throwing toys any more.

And all in all I'm not empty handed,
I don't know where I am landing,
I am not aware of all the secrets of the universe.

But I am breathing,
Breathing deep,
Recovering my youth while I can sleep.
And late at night with thoughts whizzing through my head,
I can believe, I can smile, I can work.

And all in all I'm not empty handed,
I don't know where I am landing,
I am not aware of all the secrets of the universe.

I was brought up on different streets,
The price of love was dear to me,
The thoughts tore me apart,
Before too long I was a different man.

I want to break out,
I want to be free,
I want to take over all the things that possess me,
I want to reach out and hug the world,
I want to live a life that I can call absurd.
