Spend This World

For this song, I had to channel my inner teen. laugh I wanted to write from the perspective of a teen/young adult, so I tried to recall my thought processes as a high school student in the 70s. Like it or not, this is what I came up with. I hope the age of my voice doesn't ruin the presentation of the song.

Tracks:
RT2583 Guitar, Electric, Rhythm Punk
RT2584 Guitar, Electric, Rhythm PunkMuted
RT2585 Guitar, Electric, Rhythm PunkHeldPlus
RT997 Guitar, Electric, Rhythm HardRockLACrispArp
RT699 Guitar, Electric, Rhythm ElecRockDirty
RT2586 Guitar, Electric, Soloist PunkMurray
RT2589 Bass, Electric, PunkFuzz
Virtual Guitarist Iron
Drums are from spliced loops (royalty-free, of course)

Lyrics:

They put me here
For thinking about you
The put me here
What are they gonna do

I’m waiting for the walls

They put here
Cause I don’t wanna
They put me here
Cause I’m gonna

I’m waiting for the walls to come crashing down.

Nothing will take me away from you ever
We’re gonna spend this world together

They put me here
Cause they don’t know
The put me here
To put on a show

I’m waiting for the walls to come crashing down.

Nothing will take me away from you ever
We’re gonna spend this world together

Clowns lurking on the forest edges
Gnomes living in your mama’s hedges
Stone skipping by the old school
Midnight dipping in your kiddie pool

I’m waiting for the walls

I’m waiting for the walls to come crashing down

Nothing will take you away from me ever
We’re gonna spend this world together

They put me here
To put on a show
They put me here
Cause they don’t want to know

Wowser. That intro got me sitting up straight in my chair. Very cool tune and an awesome vocal. Well done. Boy that bass just makes the song just bounce...

Scott,
He`s alive in there- that teen I mean, and the old guy who listened to all those 80`s bands ( I hardly did, but I`m thinking Cheap Trick?).
I like the whole thing, but my favourite part is the lyrics on the bridge:

Clowns lurking on the forest edges
Gnomes living in your mama’s hedges
Stone skipping by the old school
Midnight dipping in your kiddie pool

nice...there`s a story or two behind that.

Robert

This is cool - your vocal is one of your best.
I think the guitars in the verses are too fizzy/metal but that's becasue the RealTracks labelled punk are more 90's punk than late 70s. If you tried to defizz them with EQ you'd end up with blunt blah.
This song pushes and rocks, the bass and drums are spot on as, like I mentioned, the voice.

Yeah, as mentioned that inner teen can rock! I (Bud) can relate to this but from the 60's. Another decade same angst. Janice just smiled when I typed that smile

We always liked connect your own dots lyrics when there are the "right" amount of dots and this one is perfecto.

We've always been fans of your vocals and this one is so full of energy ... which is necessary for that hard pumping very well done production.

As Janice says, "never grow up it's a trap." Hmmm..a hook perhaps.

In summary it is FUN to hear some hard driving rock on the board!

Hi Ez ...

As I listened, I considered lengthening my sideburns and letting my hair grow! But ... I didn't. Definitely 70's rock. My rock era was the 60s ... I'm an old fart. Will be 74 on my next birthday. Yikes!!!!

Love that clipped ending ... the perfect punctuation for the hard drive along the way. Your inner teen thrives!

Best to you. Be safe ...

Alan

Hello Ezekiel's Storm,

It's good rock. The voice fits well with the rhythm without being aggressive despite the content of the lyrics. The mix is ​​good.

Best regard

Great sounds, Ezekiel. Outstanding lyrics and your vocal is PERFECT. Sounds so much better than some young punk trying to pull it off. wink

"Clowns lurking on the forest edges
Gnomes living in your mama’s hedges
Stone skipping by the old school
Midnight dipping in your kiddie pool"

You, too, huh?

Where in the world did they put you? As manic as this is, I wouldn't be surprised by any answer. Great fun with an angsty soul. Sounds really good with an effective stereo spread. And it definately put me back (in feel, if not style) to my high school days, remembering the forever love of my life. Sweet...Whatzer Name.

You were some youngster!
Nice energetic song. Very pleasant listening to. Old days reviving with this...

I only had one objection; "We’re gonna spend this world together" is not a good thing for the world, is it?

"Clowns lurking on the forest edges

Stone skipping by the old school

I see I'm not the only one that picked that particular set of lyrics smile Very cool indeed.

The 70's ... a special time indeed! Many fond memories.

Outstanding track from start to finish, well done.
