I've wasted a lot of time on this one... But I think it was worth it. This song is the first that I've written real lyrics for and not just a couple of words repeated. The song was just instrumental for a month or two until I had a conversation with my friend about how she would hear me talk in my sleep sometimes when I spent the night. I would say things like, "Plastic Baskets" and "Caldesacs" and it would wake her up. I decided to take a stab at writing lyrics using this absurd material. I wrote the verse lyrics but couldn't think of a chorus.

A couple more months went by and I almost forgot about the song until a project for my creative writing class came along. I wrote some "creative lyrics" and finish the song. I burned the song on to a CD and played it to the class. The few that spoke said they really liked it and the rest nodded slightly. It was really exciting to be able to play one of my songs "live" to people who didn't even know I made music. I feel that this is one of my best songs to-date and I hope everyone enjoys it.

Here are the lyrics:


-Intro Verse-

Skip skip skippiddy, skip skip skip.
Skip skip skippiddy, skip skip skip.
Skip skip skippiddy, skip skip skip.
My mind is skippiddy, skip skipping.

-2nd Verse-

Why do we do it? No one knows.
When I'm under will it show?
Get me out, because I know I can't take it.

-3rd Verse-

I lay down, go to sleep.
What is going to unfold?
As I fade into darkness
I see nothing.

-Break Verse (3x)-

Plastic baskets
Thumbs up
Drink the cup
Don't cut
Don't cut

-Chorus (3x)-

I can't remember what really happened.
I only know what I was told.
It wasn't real, only a dream.
These random phrases I said.


Comments welcome! Thanks!



Very nice Kreese!_Allthough I'm not a fan of that robot/voice effect thing, I think you made a good song here . Break/change at 01:15 is awesome, actually my favourite part of the track. I just can't help to wonder what it would sound like if you used your real voice , in particular for the verses. The robo-effect/ voice would sound so much better if you only used it in the chorus'es. Less is more, but thats only my opinion.
Keep it up!

Kreese responds:

Thanks Tokolos! I used a vocoder for the vocals because I can't sing, as much as I wish I could. I might just try it though on the verses, maybe my voice won't sound as bad as I think it will. Thank you so much for taking the time to listen and review!
