Underfoot

February 1, 2013 11:07 AM

This was a fast and dirty demo I made up to teach my band the song. Kinda like how it came out, so I figured I'd throw it up here. Nice little garage rock tune. Nifty synths.

i tried to give you all my love like a preemptive heart attack. i tried to give my brain to science. motherfuckers gave it back. i tried to think of what you'thinking of. it didn't really work. your pretty words were in y mouth. i was still singing for the jerks. and I am still singing for the jerks

and it ain't hard to make you smile. i think it's your natrual state. still i don't think i'll ever tire of seeing that rose bloom on your face. you've got a wrap sheet i can't touch. you put my sorry sop to shame. And David Bowie would have said that you don't make false claims.

of all the stupid things to do, here's the one I did: i fucked it up and fell in love with you just like a little kid.

you know it kills me just the way that you kill everything you do, like life's an orgasm and everyone is faking it but you. and all i tried to do was try and take a little of your time. but you're a mover, you're a shaker and to slow you down's a crime.

there's tantrums and there's boundry tests. i hate to say you've got me pegged. i'm sorry to be underfoot, but girl i like your legs.

and on the telephone you only get my dirty mouth

This is a cute song, it's pretty raw but there's plenty going on in terms of melody. However I think you guys need to work on tightness more - you seem to wander from each other timing-wise here and there. Particularly the guitar and drums. Also I like the organ a lot! If I was mixing this, I'd have the guitar mixed lower, and the organ up :)

thanks. yeah this was just me playing everything, so it is kinda not tight.
