How does it feel?

about

So, this song...

I wrote it for @popmythology's challenge about "societal collapse" (fawm.org/forums/topic/12288/). It's pure angst, unlike anything I've ever written. My first NSFW song. The "guillotine" part was added on my last take. I already had the lyrics written down and I just shouted it to my surprise.

Obviously this song is also part of the #fuzz challenge, because what's better than fuzz for angst? More fuzz.

I enjoyed playing the bass in this song, with all the signature changes. They felt natural. There's 4/4, 7/4 and 5/4. More firsts.

I used an old microphone my friend found in the dumpster, an EV-630. It's actually a very clean microphone, so I added post-processing so the vocals would sound like a megaphone.

Enjoy!

lyrics

How does it feel?
To be on the other side?
Is it all real?
Take me for a ride

Motherfucker set me free!

How does it feel?
Sacrificing your first born?
You're living the dream
In a world that's torn

Motherfucker crush my soul!

You think this world was meant for you
You're far from the truth!
You're far from the truth!

Your time will soon arrive
Guillotine!

How does it feel?
To be on the other side?
Is it all real?
Take me for a ride

Motherfucker crush my soul!

You think this world was meant for you
You're far from the truth!
You're far from the truth!

Your time will soon arrive
Guillotine!

You think this world was meant for you
You're far from the truth!
You're far from the truth!
