I noticed that If I Could Choose was on the top of the grunge list and I got all hyped up and I wanted to record a song as fast as I can just because I finally got that spark. Ok, a little patience probably wouldn't have hurted but anyway, here it is, took me just 1 hour to record so I guess compared to that it sounds pretty good. The song itself is something that I've been playing myself for some time now and I really like it. Also, for the longest time it's something that doesn't fit the style of our band but perfectly fits the style of my music here. So yeah, here it is.

Expect something heavier in the near future! Something more like "So Far, No Good" and "Below the Minimum"

lyrics:
if i was a letter sent to your address by mistake
would i be tempting enough for you to open me anyway
would you send me back to sender or just throw me away
or would you treasure me forever and keep me safe
if i was a little better you would love me anyway

i lay down on the ground on the side of the road
and i hope that you'll run over me
because only if you killed me you would cry
if i died

if i was a love letter would you burn me after reading
if i was a cut would you try to stop me from bleeding
if i was a question would you answer me then
and if you forgot me would you try to remember me again
if i was a little better you would want to be my friend
if only i was intimidating enough then at least you would pretend

i'm waiting for you princess i'm a poisonous toad
you will die if you come too close
that's the reason why i don't want you to kiss me
i just want you to miss me
when i fade away

if i was a garden would i be your sanctuary
or the place where you bring your dogs to take the shit
if i was a church would you find your god in me
or would you come only just when you have sinned
if i was a gravestone would you cry in front of me
or would you only come at night just to push me on my back
if i was a priest would you confess your sins to me
or would you come just to steal from my offertory bag

Great

I loved the lyrics, and especially I the guitar work. Your voice was a bit out of tune and at sometimes a bit painful. But this was still awesome!


ShanZE responds:

Thank you! Actually I'm quite surprised how everyone loves the guitar so much, it's just one track and I don't play anything spectacular there anyhow. Not that I'm complaining :D But I'm glad you notice the lyrics, they are the most important part of the song (well, figures because this is more like singer/songwriter type of music and I'm not exactly a guitar genius although I don't completely suck arse) ... But yeah, thanks a lot!

i swear NG has better music than itunes

love it. honestly, vocals where out of tune here and there, but who cares? i lvoe this! 5/5 9/10, DL, fav
very good lyrics btw, very nice meaning. +good guitar
i liked the vocal distortion, very fitting.

please return the favor on my new song, thunder shore, thanks :3


ShanZE responds:

i care actually but i like what you said :D cool that you dig, now i feel like i could've done a lot better. fuck. i always do the same. that's the good thing about playing in a band, you never get to release anything halfbaked shitty shit. but it means a lot to me that you dug this and understood the deeper meaning. i'll return the favor later, maybe tomorrow? thanks to you!

if you wanna hear music from my band, just to compare it, really, you should:

Decent

The guitar was awesome. It was the voice that kinda made it "iffy" for me. It was very out of pitch, and just needs a lot of work.
Keep up the good work, and work on your singing :D


ShanZE responds:

EDIT: ok now it restarted my computer and realized that the fucking horrible pitch change was some crazy shit that my computer decided to do. now it sounds normal. so i guess i didn't sing good this time :( i forgive myself, i've got a flu that seriously fucks my vox up. i always work on my vocals, and still I don't fucking sound like mike patton, now what the fuck's up with that anyway? ok yeah i hear it now it sounds like shit at the end of 2nd verse... sorry about that.. i'll record a better version someday (i always say that, never do that though... maybe this time?)
