Life is demented waltz



Life is demented waltz
**********************

Life is demented waltz
you dance from the childhood
to old age.

You dance you dance (repeat)
cause the bullets of time.

Ricocheting on your feet.

Forcing you to change.

There goes a hand.

There goes a leg.

Soon you hobble on one foot.


Life is demented waltz
you dance from the childhood
to old age.

You dance you dance (repeat)
cause the bullets of time.

Life is demented waltz

If you were Mars alone



Usually I do not like dubstep bass. But on this song. It just fits the idea..

If you were on Mars
********************

If you were on Mars
alone
would you miss
your home

(repeat) * 3

what would you do
if you were here
what would you do
if you were me

if you had no place to go
and you were just an alien
maybe talking to yourself
after years of failing

cracked, snapped,
back on booze
wearing down your
homeless shoes

and everybody was
looking at you
like you were
from mars

if you were on mars
alone
would you miss
your home

(repeat) * 3

no one wants to understand
the people on the street
they treat the homeless like a cancer
like it was disease

as if it was up to you
when life cuts you down
and you find yourself
alien, in a alien town

if you were on mars
alone
would you miss
your home

(repeat) * 3


-

The idea is that being homeless is like being on a another planet.. 

If I am going to make a video for this. It is going to combine Nasa
Mars pictures with pictures of homeless people on the street..

I am probably not going to do that today though..

The days between
***********

between the crises

that come in all sizes

the walks in the forest

the kisses in the night

The days between

I live for

days between

The days between
the fires burning bright
The days between
spent crying in the night

The days between

I live for

days between

I live for

days between

between the birth and the death
between the scar and the wreck

The days between

I live for
days between

The days between

I live for
days between

who by fire
who by desire

this you must understand
there is no promised land down here

just the days between

just the days between

between the birth and the death
between the scar and the wreck

between the bullet and the war
between the fuck and the sore

days between
i live for days between

the days between
i live for days between

As we stand
************

Ive been living like a tree
that has been growing out of seed
of a past like train wreck
coming after me.

Singing Hallelujah
oh my word i barely knew ya
there is a brand new day
comin trying to cut me down.

And I stand.

As we stand.

And the wind it keeps on circling
like the vultures on the sky
as we come to new December
I am talking to the sky.

Oh lord give me this
but no lord do not give me that
cause i wanted to be my father
not this cut down Jack.


And I stand.

As we stand.

It is the same old martyr story
it is the same old dead end town

We all fall down from the glory
we all all come tumbling down

Sound of the music
it is driving me crazy

In love for the first time
I am thinking of suicide

Ive been living like a tree
that has been growing out of seed
of a past like train wreck
coming after me.

Singing Hallelujah
oh my word i barely knew ya
there is a brand new day
comin trying to cut me down.

And I stand.

As we stand.

And I stand.

As we stand.

And I stand.

As we stand.

now everybody is hoping
hoping against the hope
and everybody is looking
for a really sturdy rope

they do not see the light
that they are like trees
standing firmly in place
where they ought to be

And I stand.

As we stand.

And I stand.

As we stand.

And I stand.

As we stand.

Two blasts from the past: "When you are young" and "I want to fly with you"

I had a fan ask me for these two songs on Facebook. Somehow she remembered one of
the old videos Kyle Le had done and these songs on them. 

These two songs are from a period I have not looked back on too fondly.



"When you are young"



"I want to fly with you"

Since 2011 I got my anxiety disorder.. But they are probably better songs than what I
have been pumping out lately. More heartfelt and less generic..


The songs are made with FLstudio:

Lost in the circle of fifths



Once again inspired by the video I posted in last song. Just going down a fifth,
writing random soul free melody and moving on. Then in the middle there is the
part where the song is stuck around a# for a bit. Until it goes back to the main
chord and main repeating melody..

Video for "Lucked out"


Lucked out


The project is made with FLstudio 11.1 : (opens also with later versions probably)

I started this morning by watching youtube videos about making music..

This one:


Inspired me to make the chords that start the song.. But then I kind of just drifted from
those chords to my own direction.. Added some melodies.. And that is it..

Speedboat to heaven


Back to Jan Hammeresque songs.

The project is made with FLstudio 11.1 : (opens also with later versions probably)

Kind a sloppy project file. I initially intended to make a song using only sytrus. Loading
DX7 patches.. But then.. I decided to use mausynth as main bass line. I was flirting with
using Independence for guitars.. But I wanted to keep that 80es vibe with the dx7 guitars..

It is kind of funny when you use Sytrus to load sys files from 1989..  I imagine that main guitar
line is from early eighties originally..

I gave it a weird disortion filter fx. With effector filtering the beginning of each note a little
bit.

Fools and soldiers


This song was built around NI kore bass line that actually is in wrong key.
The song is in key of f# but the NI kore bass line is played around c from midi keyboard.
I suspect it is some kind of problem with the sample.

There is a instance of NI reaktor with Tim Exiles mouth.. But that is not needed.
It was the fx I sung through.. 

Fools and soldiers

I guess I was

Now I see the flag is torn
bloodstained and frayed
