Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

this is in the Auntie-Sin game(http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/content/auntie-sin-anti-syn-game) and is a "synthesis" of @colgoo - *21951 and @plainwhitetoast *22106

The chain goes:
#1 the thesis: @AndyGetch - *20863
#2 antithesis: @Scubed - *21615
#3 synthesis: @colgoo - *21951
#4 antithesis: @plainwhitetoast *22106
#5 synthesis: me

i have tried to keep the essence of the 2 songs whilst i may not have kept the actual words/lines. I kept more or less the chords which both songs shared. long story challenging game, hope i've done it justice!

Lyrics: 

they are hurting me, humanity
dealing destruction, blinded by vanity
try to tame me, but my rivers will flow free one day
they will not stop me, I will rise again

society will fall
Nation will wipe out Nation
Society will fall
blow itself to obliteration
Society will fall
the annihilation of all civilization
Society will fall
and I will rise

They're poisoning the planet, and they too will choke
in oceans of pollution, in cities of smog and smoke
intent on their extinction they ignore my cries
and when they lose their hold on me I will arise

society will fall
Nation will wipe out Nation
Society will fall
blow itself to obliteration
Society will fall
the annihilation of all civilization
Society will fall
and I will rise

but in the wasteland something will survive
generations of strange mutations, something will thrive
life will climb out from the devastation
feeding on decay and decimation

society will fall
Nation will wipe out Nation
Society will fall
blow itself to obliteration
Society will fall
the annihilation of all civilization
Society will fall
and I will rise

creepers conquer concrete, and their machinery,
factories and cities, covered in greenery
their skyscrapers will crumble, vines, weeds and flowers
flourish and tumble through the windows of their towers

society will fall
Nation will wipe out Nation
Society will fall
blow itself to obliteration
Society will fall
the annihilation of all civilization
Society will fall
and I will rise



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

Awesome synthesis of two very very different songs that really captures the evolution of the game! I hear different aspects of all of the songs in the thread. You did an amazing job! I first just listened to the song without reading your liner notes and going back through the set an thought it was a powerful well done song - and now I am really blown away by your skills in pulling this off so well!

Nice synthesis! I wonder what direction this will take in its antithesis.

Love the strum pattern. Love the post-apocalyptic direction you took. You really held on to the ideas without having to exactly follow lyrics. I love how you took two very different songs and mashed them into a unique product.

I haven't listened to any of the chain, but this came up on the jukebox and I just had to stop by and let you know how much I like your vocal here. It's strong, clear and confident. A good performance.

I enjoyed synthesizing this song. You gave me a lot of good ideas to steal. Now I get to listen to the rest of the chain Smile

What a great game... I like the live sounding drums and I'm finally hearing some of the themes that came into my own synthesis more clearly... When I heard Andy's source song I was thinking, 'how could it possibly have started here' but by this point in the chain the connections are more obvious. Nice work!
