    545 views 6 months ago
    Part two of "Twelve Months"! This time for the randomized restrictions we got: 225bpm, Key of G Major, Song must have Acoustic Guitar and said guitar MUST HAVE FUZZ. FUN. Click More for Lyrics / etc!

    More about 'Twelve Months':
    On the first of each month in 2018 we are assigned 3 randomly selected restraints and have to write a song, record it, film it and release it before the end of that month. At the end of month 12, all of the songs will be remastered for a full-length with B-Sides. We'll be adding constraint polls for subscribers / social media followers as we get further along so if you wanna help steer the ship, we're with you!

    Gear used: RaygunFX Super Fuzzboy pedal for the acoustic.
    Gameboy's are a 2xLSDJ setup.

    LYRICS:
    Hard to believe that you have grown so detached
    This smell of hope has turned to ash

    You think it’s easy to exist like this
    Out in the world that you have crashed

    Hold the phone
    And fix this now
    Repair somehow
    Or you’re repeating history

    We'll just be sinkin' on this ship
    Or we can try to
    Do
    Better
    Though it doesn't matter in your eyes

    We'll just be sinkin' on this ship
    Or we can try to
    Be
    Better
    Though it doesn't matter in your eyes
    In your eyes
    In your eyes

    We'll just be sinkin' on this ship
    Or we can try to
    Do
    Better
    Though it doesn't matter in your eyes

    We'll just be sinkin' on this ship
    Or we can try to
    Be
    Better
    Though it doesn't matter in your eyes
    In your eyes Show less
