Description
This piece isn't for everybody. This was uploaded mostly for the lyrics and the emotion representing them. The loops in the back are simple and repetitive. Not a great musical piece, but the poetry's what I focused on here.
That said, listen at your own risk :)

Lyrics
The bodies meld together
This press of flesh
Flies landing on the counter
Of your vacant mess
 
Death is on the corner
He turns me on
The prospect so exciting
But my mind is gone
 
I close my eyes
 
I believe your lies
 
I feel the belt caress me
Tighten on my arm
The needle does suppress me
But keeps me safe from harm
 
The stench is overwhelming
But I ignore the pain
I'll close my eyes and pretend
I'm staying sane
 
I break my skin
 
So I can feel again
 
I close my eyes
 
And I believe your lies

This agony I feel with you
In my mind
Breaks me down
Every time

Fake a smile
Confidence a must
But the steel in my veins
Has started to rust

Close my eyes
 
And believe your lies

I break my skin
 
So I can feel again
 
In vain...

I think
this song is totally out there. Totally out there is what I live for.

It is killer Addison!

I think its worth expanding. Its beyond cutting edge which makes it fantastic. It's also really unique. You're right about not for everyone. Only those who seek out that which is not mainstream will really appreciate the artistry in this.

Awesome!

Thank you so much! I told some of my friends about this song, and mentioned it was heavily Otep-inspired...

Damn
Damn.

Well, I should say more than that. Bless you for not trying to produce music that is for "everybody." Music for everybody is excruciatingly dull. This is anything but.

Expand on it. Very powerful.

Awesome
I always focus on lyrics, and these are powerful. Honestly, the music is overshadowed by your poetry & kick a$$ vocals. So you did exactly what you set out to do with this piece. Great stuff!

This is a pretty damn awesome mix in my opinion! I'm impressed Addison! I really like what you did here! I has a very cool intensity about it and feels all so haunting, which is right up my alley! Question, did that constant quarter-beat guitar come from the tune up kit found here on macjams? I recently was looking at that on my computer... lol Awesome mix! Love it!

Say what?
Everything is loops from Garageband that I just threw together... I don't know about kits on this site?

Thanks for giving it a listen and liking!!!

Re: Say what?
If you're using Drak's GB, he must've downloaded the mini-tune-up. (See Link: http://www.macjams.com/media/)

No problem!

re: ...
The tune-up kit is just a whole bunch of different loops. :)

The vocal delivery reminds me a bit of KatieJane Garside with its breathy, unhinged delivery. The low-fi-ness actually plays well into the songs favour, keeping it panicky and claustrophibic. It would be nice to hear the backing expanded upon, have the whole piece match the sense of trapped urgency.

Hey, Addi here. Hopefully I'll be coming out of this hiatus soon, but no promises. I'm working on something, I'm not sure if I'm happy with it but maybe it will make its way up here. -Vocalist, painter, poet.... [see more]
