Song for my momma

Rap for my momma since I ain't been home in a while. Mom if you're reading this I love you.


I wrote these lyrics out a month ago, only had a chorus until I started writing a beat and changed a pronoun. This is the result. Software discussed below. Lyrics are in the order written. Critique welcome.


Lyrics:

intro

wish I could say I cared

wish I could say I try

I know it makes you scared

When I ain't there sometimes

 

Say you love me fore you go

With a lump in ya throat

kiss me bye it's my luck

To know the kind that comes before throwing up

 

Chorus

Momma Be nice if the world could ever hold its color

Sometimes wish I could erase everything

divide between being alone and alive

Separating the pressure from always wasting my time

 

And sometimes I feel like I really let it slip

Like the cracks in the concrete broke your back as a kid

You'd look up so I could talk down from the left

And Invent new ways to boundaries overstep

 

Chorus 2

Be nice if people stopped telling you to shut up

Sometimes I wish I could erase all of this

The divide tween to succumb and survive

and V for vendetta tween live and alive

 

And sometimes feel like I'm ready to freaking slip

Like the jokes out my mouth I would crack as a kid

But look up now momma, just pick up yo head

I'll always be yours, yeah, we went over it

 

Verse 1

Dear momma wish that I could see your face

It's been over a year now and I'm in another place

I could try to find a way but it's complicated

I wish I had the time since I graduated

 

Only took six months to forget the smell of cigarettes

Now every other smoker got me sniffling cause I let

Too many damn emotions govern all the thoughts in my head

about the happy memories you missing now that I left

 

Verse 2

Dear momma hear me pray that you're okay

been a year and a half now I'm bout a half as sane

I could try to see you but it's complicated

I got the time now but I can't take it

 

another six months and I smelled your favorite cigarettes

Remembered how I hate em but it was a fucking blessing

been too damn long now I'm trying to clear my head

The TV's so loud, all I wanna tell you is


Chorus


Software: Mixcraft 9. Almost exclusively freeware VSTis. Exception being Avenger synth for applying white noise to a hi-hat and one or two leads. The rest are Surge (free), run through a lot of OneKnob and compressors.


All percussion is freeware. USSR Elsita drum machine with settings in Russian, various hihats and kicks. Molot (hammer) compressor. Aggressive Drums VST for snare. Crash VSTi for auxiliary crashes. Cymatics impact sample. 99sounds hats for layers.


Bass, CS One bass and Ob-Xd, layered with KSHMR Essentials Kick for processing. It just worked. I actually think KSHMR is on every percussion instrument, if not most synths. Bass signal is run through Molot and KSHMR Essentials Kick.


That distorted noise in the left and right channel is me humming into Waves Berzerk distortion and some OneKnob plugins like drive. Every vocal track is run through GW VoiceCentric and ButchVig vocals and some misc doublers and choruses. I wanted to try cronching them.


In total there are about 30 tracks. Project time, in total about 50 hours, including writing lyrics.
