Bendz
on: September 07, 2019, 20:52:44
I’ve been listening to Nirvana recently and watched the documentary Montage of Heck yesterday (recommendable watch). Anyhow I was messing around with my electric guitar today and GarageBand when I got the bug with a melody and drum beat that I came up with.
Once I got that I dug around in my folder of unused lyrics when I came across Bendz...and the result is a grungy number which is also the shortest song I’ve ever written.
Enjoy!

”BENDZ”
Eyes wide shut, mouth wide open
Feelings are exposed, emotions are heightened.
Heart is beating, tears are falling
Body is shaking, mind is over loading

Eyes burst open, mouth is swollen
Skin is crawling, fingertips are broken
Tongue is sharper, the words they hit harder
Fists are flying, shouting is getting louder

@mazzmarriott  - sounding cool & fresh. Well sung, and the drums sound ace. Garageband is your special friend methinks  ::thumb::
Why is it called BENDZ? "getting louder" could also be a fine title for such a piece.

I like it.

The way it hits hard and then ends abruptly like that would make a great intro song to your next EP.

What struck me on this one was the excellent lyrics.

Quote
Eyes wide shut, mouth wide open
Feelings are exposed, emotions are heightened.
Heart is beating, tears are falling
Body is shaking, mind is over loading

Eyes burst open, mouth is swollen
Skin is crawling, fingertips are broken
Tongue is sharper, the words they hit harder
Fists are flying, shouting is getting louder

I feel these verses are building to a killer chorus but you haven't written it yet.

Good Work ... so far ;-)
