I don't have a serious video game addiction, but it can get pretty intense sometimes. Whenever that kind of depression hits, that's when i write. Video games can be an excellent source of artistic inspiration, but can also be a Mobius Strip endlessly looping my half-dreams through hell. Ain't no sense in getting rid of them, so I might as well have written this song. Anydangways, I used Reason and my Casio for all the background keys and loops(small edited snippets of the Starfox 64 March, "Pinball Cha-cha" by Yello, and a 6th grader making shotgun noises in the 90's) and samples in Audacity(Duck Hunt, Myst). I also played bass guitar and made that improvised farting solo with my hands. The solos and bird tweets were improvised on a Moog Micromoog. Enjoy!

Lyrics:

Water
Degrees of the Emerald Daughter
And all the Friendship brought was
Bacon to the slaughter
Carry seeds of hate
to the sniper's window
I know, it's so pathetic, yes I know.

It gets the best of me,
It makes me fantasies and voices in my head
The sword is not in stone,
Stuck in a trailer home
All alone
The sword is fantasy,
It makes me fantasies and voices in my head...

That worldly power
what got no name that
goes by the name of Video James
understood that
he who makes
the best mistakes
can do it all over again
and over again
and over again
and over again
and over again
and over again
and over again
and over again
and over a-gain!

i'm takin a page
from the book of sleep
this army of mine
will save my dreams
he who makes
the worst mistakes
can stay awake with that there Video James...
