Hello all,

Here's a song about resignation, maybe, I think.  I hope you find something in it.

Audio: https://soundcloud.com/aesthetique/maudlin
Words: 

Iíve been waiting out the demons in my head
Iíve been laughing at the dying and the dead
Iíve been grinding out my teeth and cartilage
Cutting out my soul on the streets of Cambridge
I just want to see it all on fire
(ashes of the empire)

Iíve been wishing for a spine to straighten up
Better luck Ė better luck Ė donít give a fuck

Iíve been avoiding my reflection in the mirror
Iíve been living in the internet for years
Iíve been choking on my teeth and tongue
I wonít die old but I wonít die young
I just want to see it all on fire
(pile it on the funeral pyre)

Iíve been wishing I could start it all over
Better luck Ė better luck Ė four leaf clover
Iíve been wishing for a spine to straighten up
Better luck Ė better luck Ė donít give a fuck

Iím hazy in the morning.
Iím hungry in the night.

Iíve set @monty_lameer Ďs Blather to music not so long ago.
It seems like a heart felt urge to write things like these.
And why does it all have to be easy listening?
I like the energy and the pulse very much.
Good piece of work @thewinefestival !
Kind regards, Gus

Hi @thewinefestival

I really enjoyed your so different song!!! May be it looks sad, heavy, dark....
I liked a lot "I wonít die old but I wonít die young
I just want to see it all on fire"
as well the arrangement and production.


Good luck, yes.  ::thumb::
I did not know that to live I had to die so many times

I think this is seriously good production.......from the writing and arrangement to the very cool tension that you create between that intentional distortion and the smoothness and relaxed delivery of the vocals.

Excellent mix as well.....
