I'm Not Supposed To Know

come down and eat chicken with me, beautiful... this is the grungiest of the grunge in the new batch of songs. sloppy playing, sloppy singing, and this big fuzzy guitar sound made with my acoustic-electric Luna phoenix plugged into a Big Muff. i love that sound. big and muddy, fuzzy and sharp at the same time.
something about this song's simplicity helped trigger a wave of songwriting, allowing me to ease back with the atmospherics (like in Hotel NJ) and just have fun playing short and sweet songs again. ...and rip off everything that ain't nailed down.
as a primer, i guess: there's only the one guitar, tripled-down in the mix with different sonic textures added to the additional two guitar tracks (and placed about 50% into the right and left stereo channels, to get a bigger wall of sound but not stretch out past the drums). and i also play bass here, a gigantic Ibanez Roadstar. also that's me singing. yeah. i do everything around here, out of poverty as much as necessity. i program the drum patterns in Fruityloops, here using this new kit (of wav files) that i first debuted in Fantastic Prison. (!) my old standby was a classic Ludwig snare sound clip (prominently used in Terra Angelica), but there are like eight different snare hits of varying hardness in the new kit. i've played drums in two bands, so blah blah blah, i basically just air drum at my desk and then click it in on FLP. it's just as tedious as it sounds. but i'll admit, i can't play drums as good as i make them here, that's for damn sure. i've programmed the tom drums to sweep across the stereo spectrum, to sound like you're actually sitting at the drum throne hearing it played. i hope so, anyway. let me know. if you know what i'm talking about.

"I'm Not Supposed To Know"

by the pen, by the pen or by the gun
by the word, or the bullet fired from that gun
by the tongue, by the tongue or by the teeth
there are things in this world so dark they glow

I'm not supposed to know (3x)

in the end, just a black sheep amidst fat wolves
yet again, sex and violence push and pull
in the end, just a costume I have worn
underneath is a black sheep after all

I'm not supposed to know (3x)
but cracks begin to show

as the ears of an ass to a white rabbit
as the saints and the sinners go marching in
like a glowworm to a maggot
it's a shame both end up in a black hole

I'm not supposed to know (3x)
the cracks begin to show

I love this

I love the new experimental stuff and genre crossing you've been up to lately but it's cool to see you're still dropping some heavy grungers! This one's a big bad beast, I love the way everything sounds and your voice sounds REALLY good on this one.

A refreshing breath of filthy grunge air. You have my 10.

im not sure what that guy down there is saying about the drums? the samples and the patterns sound almost perfect...

theres not a whole lot to say about this song. its sounds horrible in a perfect grungy way and the production on it is well done and thats all i really have to say, i commented mostly to call out "natalo77" on being a dumbass. haha keep it up :P
