This is a song about what a serial murderer might feel like after he's been at it for so long he can hardly stand it anymore.
All the joy has gone out of it for him, and he's only doing it out of habit anymore. He wouldn't know what to do with himself if he wasn't stalking someone
, so he just keeps doing what he knows, despite his fatigue and confusion. He no longer enjoys what he does, but that never had too much to do with it in the first place. There's an allegory here that I won't spell out for you, but I think you'll see where I'm going.
On a more practical note; the more I record myself, the more I realise that people who are good at recording are worth every penny we spend on them. Help me out and let me know how I might tighten this thing up. I can't seem to capture the sound I'm after, but I hope I'm getting the point across. Also, pardon the rough fiddles - I've only just started at it
On collaboratory note; anyone want to add to this, or help me with it? Lord knows, I could use all the help I can get.
