A song called Mountains about alcohol addiction. Written about a young man's progression from alcoholic, to wake up call, to recovery. This is for my band Striga's debut album. Let me know what you think.

Striga is currently:
Zac - Guitar/Vocals
Gina - Guitar/Vocals
Criss - Bass

Gear and lyrics as followed.

DAW - Logic Pro X

Vocals were tracked using a Sure Sm58 through a behringer UMC202HD.

Guitars were tracked through the same interface using an Sm57
A fender American special telecaster was tracked through a mesa boogie dual rectifier, coupled with a paul reed smith mira through a Marshall Jcm to create the guitar tones.

Bass was done DI through Avalon.

Drums are programmed, using a bussed EQ and reverb channel to achieve the tone of an overhead mic recording.

Lyrics.

Forget to pay when I leave the bar,
After drinking like a God damn star,
Don't know what day it is,
Only know what month were in,

Every day is just another blur,
When you're gettin' fucked up, that's for sure,
Waking up on the bathroom floor,
Wondering what you did the night before one,

I must be making mom so proud,

I never wanted to be the one,
Getting drunk before one,
It's got me feeling like a fool,
I guess I'm just born to lose

Waking up to a car alarm,
A bloody nose and a broken arm,
Officer knows I was drinking,
I just wasn't thinking,

Handcuffed to a squad car,
Police station isn't too far,
I could've killed a kid today,
Her mother would'a never been the same,

I must be making mom so proud,

I never wanted to be the one,
Getting drunk before one,
It's got me feeling like a fool,
I guess I'm just born to lose,

They're sending me to a nice place,
So they can help me sort my life out,
Don't feel like I deserve it,
But I'll make the most of the chance I've got,
Not gonna drink another drop for the rest of my life
Gonna keep myself clean,
Gonna live through clearer eyes,

I'm gonna be the man that could move mountains,
I'm gonna be a shining light for someone,
I'm gonna be a fool in love,
I'm never gonna lose myself again,

I'm never gonna lose myself again.
