Throw Away Song (MRI w/ special guests)
on: July 13, 2016, 20:32:24
song lyrics kinda uses a backdrop of this co-worker who destroyed his cubicle after being fired in corporate layoff and then wrote all this suicidal stuff on Facebook etc- there's some subtle political fun with Trumpy zeitgeist stuff but it's not really political song just some noise art social commentary that resembles music in some places lol. instead of guitar solo I chose to use my buddy Chris from thrashcore band Sickline who did a guest appearance shredding "rant solo" and his twisted phone poetry - it "went" with the tone of the central character as he spoke like that / F-bombs and all ;p we're going to do a video where the gunshot is actually a misfire so not a cliche suicide

this is an alternate version of the (mostly sequenced song) on MRI's last album. Alan's drums are pretty phenomenal. the breakdowns are in 10/8 - all guitars are tuned to DADGAD too making the chorus riffs a bit tricky but I love the voicings

THROW AWAY SONG [2016 rock remix single off upcoming Ritual Del Cubículo]
©2016 MRI ~ Words & Music by Daren Thomas Turner

A painful observation of all of you here
Pessimistic, overdriven, troglodytive
Hello! My name is: NAME TAG
Please laminate my head
Stick me in a cubicle
Ass-f*ck me 'till i'm dead
Hurricanes and earthquakes love my zen Malthusian
'cause you reek of all your cronies and dirty nepotism
I am just an effigy burning up in flames
I'd rather be just thrown away than ever born again
Suicidal tendencies cut into my flesh
To dream in phenobarbital into foreverness
I am the vicious mirror that anorexics fear
Permanent obfuscation
Believing it's real
The point blank honesty that has made you hate my face
Also makes your own opinion of no f*cking consequence
My only friends are mannequins who linger on Facebook
I just posted my obituary and no one even looked
Hello! My name is: NAME TAG
Hello! My name is: NAME TAG
Hello! My name is: NAME TAG
Hello! My name is: NAME TAG

Drastic. Rigorous. Very well produced. And devilishly cool! ::headphone:: Karma!
