Hey everyone. I know i just put out a new song, but i realize that song is not for everyone. I would say i've gotten some negative feedback on that last one, and that is ok! I appreciate the critique. It definitely helps me get better. That last song was definitely not my favorite either, and was definitely a little experimental on my part. i appreciate those who listened to that song! I just kinda wanted to do something a little more "creative" and outside the box if you know what i mean? Anyways, This song is kinda back to what i do best i think, and upbeat pop-rock acoustic song with a dark side to it. This song is definitely not that dark tho. Its just about people who are really egotistical, and think the whole world revolves around them. The title of this song is a quote from the football player Terrel Owens (T.O). His signature catch phrase is "get your popcorn ready" He is a bit egotistical, so i thought a quote coming from a really egotistical person really would fit this song. Don't get me wrong tho, I love T.O. He is an entertainer, and he likes to have fun. Also, this song features pretty strenuous vocals for me. I really tried to push myself vocally on this song. its definitely a lot more high pitched, and has a lot more emotion. Some of you might hate the vocals because they are pretty nasally, but i hope you guys like it. I think some of the parts in this song kinda sound like vic fuentes from the band Pierce the Veil. If you don't know them, you should definitely check them out. i am certainly not comparing my voice to anyone famous, but that is as close as i could get to describing these vocals lol. In this song, I play the lead parts as well as the strumming, just not at once, so i didn't sing the second verse because i wanted to play the lead parts for you guys. Yes i lip sing in the videos lol. but all the recording is me, the vocals and guitar is me. I would play live, but my camera really sucks, and having production equipment is the way to go because it sounds so much better than a crappy camera. I promise, all of this is me tho! The lyrics will be included in the bottom. Enjoy
Its not so bad, I'm getting over myself; I had a knack for the pretentious.
I'm crasing, i'm burning, aflame; your honesty's impassioned; without it i'd be lost.
being perfect was easy, when i'm the one to blame everyone but myself.
i fed my own ego with praise i didn't deserve; everyone was jealous.
Another night alone without sleep, longing for my dreams; i always knew i'd finish last.
Eating away contagious cancer, terminal it seems; ugly truth travels fast.
One long take, reflection in the mirror, the spitting image of my heart.
I'm crashing, I'm burning, aflame, Your honesty's impassioned, without it i'd be lost
Being perfect was easy, when i'm the one to blame everyone but myself
I fed my own ego, with praise i didn't deserve, Everyone was jealous
Another night alone without sleep, longing for my dreams; I always knew i'd finish last.
Eating away contagious cancer, terminal it seems; ugly truth travels fast
Better than i ever was, more than i ever am (X2)
Another night alone without sleep...
