The dismal array
Impart the canid foray
Ascend the pillars midday
Bedecked in robes of gray
And in their wisdom
They shout to stem the plague
Offload their penance
To those among the fray
Amongst the ashes play
To sing of rings and rosies
Pockets of decay
Ashes to the wind
You will know this song, or at least most will. Quite fitting since it's round 666 lol.
Although i used the original accapella, everything else was essentially remixed/arranged by me. I tried to make it as faithful to the original as i can, while putting my own electronic spin on it.
Down on your luck, everything is never going your way
All you do is bring shame, your life is going astray
Then one day, it would seem a fortune falls on your path
All it costs is the whole of your soul, so you
Make a deal, if your problems can dissolve now
Sign away, on the contract you are offered
Naturally, there's a catch with this agreement
Especially when you're dealing with the devil
So it would seem that your life has improved, and daily
But inside you can feel the emptiness, a craving
To fulfill, it won't take, you'll never feel completed
and you wish you could renegotiate it so
Eh... it's a long story. I made this tune on a stock version of ableton with a stock version of spire and nothing else because that's all I had on my only working laptop.. In about 30 minutes. Because I couldn't find my laptop charger and that's how long my battery lasted.
But it's all about the journey, not the destination, right my mates?
Laying out the candles
Send a breathy prayer
Look upon the lost ones
I feel them in the air
Clutch the ward close
Send forth the blessed wave
To cast aside the evils
And find the one I save
Armed with desperation
Wield a blade of light
Looking out for you
I stand my ground and fight
Trapped against the mirror
Against a sickly gaze
The truth that it shows me
It's too much for me to brave
I'm falling into the depths of Hell for you
I'm facing the skeletons in my closet
So, I put on a suit, the fanciest I had. I knew I had to be there on time, that was the deal. My problems were a thing of the past, and I was ready to face this new thing head on. "This is my favorite tie", I thought, as I got closer to the gate. Thank God I had a nice suit. After all, you only die once.
Trust me, it will kind of freak you out.
Do you wanna hear something scary?
You know The Beatles right? The famous band everyone loves.
Well take a look at this.
Go to the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album, and go straight to the last track, A Day in the Life.
In typical cases, it ends on a very long release with the keyboards fading out, and for a lot of people,
this is the cue to end the track. But what they don't know is, that if you patiently wait a little longer, then something like this happens:
What are they saying? I don't know so many people have tried to work it out to different results. What do you think?
