Here's something I'm a little proud of, despite the kinda messed-up rhythm. I think otherwise, I did pretty alright! I hope you enjoy! :)

Lyrics:

[Verse 1]

True friends don't talk about you in your head
People today will lead you on and leave you dead
Don't trust those who seem just
You take the word of the shivers in your gut

[Chorus]

Persecution Complex Delusions!
I know there ain't nothin' in the closet
But something else
Keeps freaking me out
Tell me, please, have I lost it?

[Verse 2]

You feel the malicious stares of those who care
You take a breath, but your own whispers steal the air
You lose (you lose)
All the things that keep you sane
You've drained yourself, and now it's time to isolate

[Chorus]

Persecution Complex Delusions!
I know there ain't nothin' in the closet
But something else
Keeps freaking me out
Tell me, please, have I lost it?

[Chorus 2]

What if there was no solution?
I think the folks at home are out to get me
I think I know
They're keeping me out
On information
Why do they hate me?

[Outro]

Why must they hate me? (x2)
Why must the kill me
In my dreams?

I used my acoustic guitar, my Roland Keytar/Synthesizer, FL Studio 12 for the (not good) drums, and Audacity for recording.

Super cool!

Depressing xD

I noticed that the guitar is a little off beat a little bit throughout the whole thing. Is this on purpose?


StealthyNine responds:

No, it's not on purpose lol i'm just not great at keeping rhythm. I'm surprised you think it's the guitar that's off a bit though, since the drum beats were made in FL Studio and everything else was recorded in Audacity. So when it came time to match the perfect computer-generated drum tracks with the rest of the song, it became difficult to do without a little bit of editing to try and make the drums as arrhythmic as the rest of the instrumentals. So my guess is that may have thrown the whole song off-beat, but at that point there was nothing I could really do without scrapping the whole song and restarting, which I'm just too lazy to do.

I'm sorry if none of that made any sense, it's kinda hard to explain my process. A lot of my songs are thought up semi-on-the-spot. I'm trying to improve, though.

I'm glad you enjoyed it otherwise! :)


Love it! Reminds me of Modest Mouse, cool and melancholy vibes.
