Pretty Hate Machine style b a n g e r.

I might have blown my entire FAWM making this

Worth it. Reason 10, Fender Jazz, my shitty Yamaha Pacifica and my trusty plywood Alvarez dreadnought all doing their thing here with some synths for flavor. No guitar amps were used - this is all modeling. (Except for the 15 watt Crate guitar amp I'm using for the bass.)

This took me five days to make and I've been agonizing over it. It did not want to exist, and I really had to yank on it to get it past the threshold.

This is easily the best thing I've ever made.

Lyrics:

I tried to trust you
But fangs are for incisions
I think you know
I'm programmed for bad decisions

Am I awake
I feel I must be dreaming
Are you real
Or simple simply scheming

You turn on and off and on a million times a minute
What you haven't noticed is my patience has a limit

(it's time for you to disconnect me)

Take me offline
Bad time sunshine

I am the fly
Caught up in your machinery
I see you smile
And disappear into the scenery

You've got me pinned
Now it's clear what you're intending
A sparkly void
where the pain is neverending

You turn on and off and on a million times a minute
What you haven't noticed is my patience has a limit

You're content to watch me dance around at your insistence
I invite you all to watch my act of last resistance

(Its time for you to disconnect me)

Take me offline
Bad time sunshine

Super cool, very clean. I kind of wish the mix was a little beefier, but that's subjective. Really dig the harmonizing.

To be fair, I'm not a fan of the mix either. I've got a better version sitting on my hard drive, but the February Album Writing Month pace is so hectic that it'll have to wait for March!

Thanks for the kind words though!
