Convertible Hearse


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
A rockin little number with odd characters (what else is new there). no loops. one note of interest on the break there is only one region that is actually backwards. i played the chords backwards in Sound Studio, and used it's reverse effect that comes wth the mac, and used delay swells on the other guitars to give a total backward effect.

Lyrics
funny alice she's on a trip
how she wants to live off the grid
elephant messiahs keep a lid
funny alice hides where she lives

chorus
riding in a convertible hearse
seeking out the universe
the meaning and its worth
seeking out the universe

tattooed stars emblazon his face
what a night he wish he could errase
llaughed out of town he packs his case
greyhound bus delivers his escape

chorus
riding in a convertible hearse
seeking out the universe
the meaning and its worth
seeking out the universe

frezing rain in a january wind
cursed words are sure to offend
fortune teller says please chill out
frozen fear and a shadow of doubt

chorus
riding in a convertible hearse
seeking out the universe
the meaning and its worth
seeking out the universe

budda asks jesus are you cold
no but we are both pretty old
we both believe we both get along
these people where did we go wrong

chorus
riding in a convertible hearse
seeking out the universe
the meaning and its worth
seeking out the universe

Cool
Very cool glam rock/psychedelic sound here.
I especially enjoy the chorus (both melody and words).

Good Song
Nice leads throughout the song. Good lyrics and melody. Your intro was also an attention getter and a good hook for the opening verse.
Really good song, very strong.

Two suggestions, the first is where you do the break and have the backwards sounding guitar following the lead. It would have been good to have kept that up through the next verse. Would have set up a different sounding background. Also the lead at the end of the lines in the chorus seemed to end abruptly. I would have like to have heard a bend on the last note to carry it on to the next line.

Minor suggestions in the scheme of things. Great song.
