about

This is an idea built around that first keyboard riff and a wondering about how different lengths of loop per instrument would get along with each other. Meant I had to stick to the same chords a lot, but I like the interaction between the loops so to speak. Even though it's the same chord sequence all the way through it doesn't out-stay its welcome. I don't think anyway!

A lot of this done in one take, which is why some of those lyrics aren't too distinct, I was making it up as I went along, and I couldn't think of a rhyme with 'drink' at one point, or at least not one that would make sense and I didn't want to just say 'nurdle' or something because that would have just been silly, so I played the old 'mumble the word' card. Hell, if you think of good words to fill in the bits I mumbled be my guest!

Also, warning, there's a synth bass in this that you'll miss if you're listening on laptop speakers. Just drove myself wild there for a half hour trying to figure out why I couldn't hear it on soundcloud. It's there though, if you use headphones, or a decent pair of speakers...

lyrics

Too much time, too much time to think.
Too much wine, too much wine,
Too much wine to drink.

Too much time, too much time,
Too much time to drink.

Too many lies, too many lies,
Too many lies to put you on.

Too many knives, too many knives,
Out to find your back.

Too many doors, too many doors,
So many doors to confuse you with.

Too many options, too many words,
Too many lines, too absurd.

Do I want to watch you
Do I want to care,
If you want to go there?

Too much time, too much time to think.

Too much wine, too much wine,
Too much wine to drink.

Too much time, too much time,
Too much time to drink.

Too many lies, too many lies,
Too many lies to put you on.

Too many knives, too many knives,
Out to find your back.

Too many doors, too many doors,
Too many doors to confuse you with.

Too many options, too many words,
Too many lines, too absurd.

Do I want to watch you
Do I want to care,
If you want to go there?

Too much time, too much time to think.
