I See A Darkness (cover)

For null terminated.

This song has been running through my head for days, ever since I read Bill's suicide note. I don't know how apt it is; it's almost more what I wish he could have done than anything, that he could have managed to reach out and lay his internal struggle on the line to someone. But it won't go away, so here it is.

Really nice cortex. This song is one of the most important songs in my life. I was saddened to learn about null terminated.

I especially like the drums. That seems like a strange thing to say about this song to me.

Beautiful cover of one of my favorite songs. Rest in peace, Bill.

There's something wrong with this file; it seems to have made particles shoot out of the computer and get in my eyes, generating excess lacrimal fluid.

yeah, dobie, i like the drums a lot too. that snare surprised me. It's a good cover of an amazing song; i've never been happy with my own attempts at playing it.

Seems like a fitting tribute for Bill. I didn't know him personally, but found his story - his letter especially - incredibly, profoundly moving.

thanks for this, cortex.
