Got To Get Out (Demo by Helen added 7 15)

Tags: 

Demo: 

Collaborators: 

Liner Notes: 

Not that I'm an introvert with massive social anxiety but I have a friend who....(Yeah, you can ask fellow Madisonian FOP goers for clarification)

But in the meantime would love to collaborate with someone who would possibly drive this with some punk rock kind of attitude or some crazy guitar with pumping drum beat that capture that adrenaline rush of anxiety with a kind of paranoia in the bridge - open to your creative take on it!

UPDATE: Dang! Helen truly nailed the feeling I was trying to capture perfectly!! Love the vocals and vibe, especially the awesome vocal harmony layers in the chorus!! Brilliant, Helen, Thanks!!!!

Lyrics: 

V1
crowded spaces
strangers' faces
filling up corners
crawling up walls

crowded spaces
strangers' faces
jamming in doorways
spilling in halls

C
making me crazy (crazy)
feeling more hazy (hazy)
oh got to get out
got to get out
get out
somehow

making me crazy (crazy)
feeling more hazy, hazy
got to get out
got to get out
get out
now

V2
dangerous places
heartbeat races
packing in people
sucking up air

dangerous places
heartbeat races
reaching the limit
closing in here

C
making me crazy (crazy)
feeling more hazy (hazy)
oh got to get out
got to get out
get out
somehow

making me crazy (crazy)
feeling more hazy, hazy
got to get out
got to get out
get out
now

B
everyone
standing passing
talking laughing
talking about me
laughing at me
laughing at me

everyone
bumping touching
pushing shoving
pushing into me
shoving at me
shoving at me

C
making me crazy (crazy)
feeling more hazy (hazy)
oh got to get out
got to get out
get out
somehow

making me crazy (crazy)
feeling more hazy, hazy
got to get out
got to get out
get out
now

OUTRO
got to get out
got to get out
got to get out
get out now



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

You've really captured the feeling here. As an introvert - though luckily with only very mild social anxiety Wink - I can speak with some authority. Wink
The panic and paranoia (e.g. in the talking/laughing/shoving lines) are tangible.

I hope this gets picked up soon. Maybe check to see which members have some skills in the genre.

The social anxiety definitely comes through! Nice job.

Hmm reading your lyrics makes me anxious. Think my heart sped up a bit. You did well!

Brilliant lyric, love the descriptions and the choice of words. I think it's a rock song lyric. Looking forward to hearing it.

Hell, yeah! This sings to me. I have some ideas if you're happy for me to take a stab at it.

I love the backing vocals on this. Sounds so good. I like these lyrics too. V2 especially. I'm not exactly thrilled with big crowds either. This actually reminds me of the three I accidentally went to San Antonio during Fiesta. Literally shoulder to shoulder in a sea of people moving at a snail's pace down the street. I had to get out. It was awful. But enough about me. Smile Well done collab. I like it.

This just popped up on the jukebox and it really hit home. I go for months missing gigs that I'm sure I'd enjoy because the anxiety that goes with getting there just gets too much. Luckily I have a bunch of friends who know me well enough to talk me into going out.

Great song!
