T-Logic - Ghosts

Author Comments

Usually, I half-ass my Halloween Spooktacular submissions at the last-minute. This year, I full-assed it at the last minute instead! :D Made in Logic Pro X. Probably at least 15 hours of work total. I actually wrote the lyrics in July and the music in August, but I transferred my work into Logic only a few days ago. The sample of the howling wind is from http://freesound.org/people/mistersherlock/sounds/159509/. Happy Halloween, everyone!

LYRICS:

Boy, I know your doom.
They have clocks in your room
watching your every move.

You bleed time from your lips,
using snakes as whips
to combat the spirits.

(Wake up! Wake up!)

I think I might sleep better on the west coast.
It’s not so late there that the darkness chokes you.
All I ever wanted was the most
I could ever squeeze out of the ghosts at night.

You count sheep ‘til your mind is flogged.
Time keeps drippin’ while the sink is clogged, boy.

Glass slippers fracture at midnight.
Those shards hurt like a snake bite, yeah.

The scariest part
is there are no ghosts here at all.
They have you blinded by the dark,
twisting your knife in a hole in the wall.

(Wake up! Get me out of here!)

I think I might sleep better on the west coast.
It’s not so late there that the darkness chokes you.
All I ever wanted was the most
I could ever squeeze out of the ghosts at night.

Anxious thoughts like a bright light (wake up),
walking through walls to haunt you tonight.

Nice piece. Vocal editing isn't super clean -- between clips, and your harmony is a little flat. Lyrics are great. Delivery is about a 7 out of 10 for me. Really something to think about though. I would have appreciated a little hi-hat, ride cymbal, or something to push things along just a little bit and give more atmosphere.

TaintedLogic responds:

Thanks so much for the review! I totally agree about the vocals. I should spend more time editing them after the Halloween Spooktacular is over. The hats are a good idea too. Thanks again, ADR3-N! ^^
