You're Digital

Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

I wanted to work on this further, but I now have laryngitis. This needs to get posted for the anti-syn game, so here's what I had on Saturday morning before I lost my voice.

Lyrics: 

Broken, crumbled original
Rivers hate digital
We're in the rolling
I hear you're digital
Free creation, cus you're humanity
I'm towers of devastation

Every dark record, too choked
So be it - one beep, and you stand
Planet Hate stays in my thoughts
Go, hate, hate, digital
My dreaming fades
Don't, and you're analog
But you're - you're digital
You're, you're digital

Hate over trustworthy digital
Please, let own beep
Sing of lost trust, faded skyscrapers
Hate the climb - love the many
Extinction searching for the original sin

Every dark record, too choked
So be it - one beep, and you stand
Planet Hate stays in my thoughts
Go, hate, hate, digital
My dreaming fades
Don't, and you're analog
But you're - you're digital
You're, you're digital

Digital running?
You would, before our factories
Digital happy?
All past, bringing down wasteland
Digital believe?
Right time, civilization after my analog...
Fall together, in love
Fall, covered mutations
Dreaming of ruins
Dreaming of windows

Every dark record, too choked
So be it - one beep, and you stand
Planet Hate stays in my thoughts
Go, hate, hate, digital
My dreaming fades
Don't, and you're analog
But you're - you're digital
You're, you're digital



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

Sorry to hear about the laryngitis! Even if this is the end of your writing for this 50/90, you've still managed to produce some amazing songs.
I'm genuinely amazed by how you've managed to find this melody in these bizarre cut-up lyrics. It flows so well!

Wow! Beautiful song, beautiful vocal. Very nice job on the lyrics. Hey, rest up. Take care of that voice.

Yes please take care of that wonderful Joni Mitchell-esque voice! This was so beautiful and abstract (due to the nature of the challenge) which really pushes a lot of my buttons. You have such a fantastic ear for a melody. Congratulations if this is your last!

+1 on the Joni Mitchell comment. I love the dystopian feel. This is gonna be an interesting song to follow in the game Smile

This is really lovely! And what a pity to lose such a gorgeous voice. I had that happen at the end of my first FAWM, and it took over a month to regain my singing voice. Rest that beautiful voice of yours!!!

lovely. definitely reminded me of Joni Mitchel too, not just your voice but the style of the melody and phrasing. glad you got something down before you lost your voice. nicely played.

such a beautiful voice: in big contrast with digital and analog content of lyrics.
