Liner Notes: 

[@dsweidel] and me teamed up in Random collaboration (http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/content/random-collaborations)
Besides the loads of lyrics she already had added to the site she did send me some more. Here is my interpretation of one.

I really would like to add a real bass and there are a lot of ideas for embellishments but that would need more time. Maybe later.

Lyrics: 

The location like a dream
The perfect prime real estate
Couldn’t wait to move right in
And surround it by your gates

Changed all the decor
To suit your desire
Me as your Landlord
You the worst buyer

I’m tearing up the lease (You’re out)
Can’t stay in here no more (Move on)
I’m tired of the tears (It’s done)
I deserve a little peace (Go on)

Your access is restricted
Move on outta my head babe
You’ve been evicted

You wanna keep playing games
Trying to get back in your place
Messing with my head each day
To maintain your cozy space

But I’m stronger than you think
You can’t control me anymore
It’s time you move along my dear
Take your shit right out my door
I’m tearing up the lease (You’re out)
Can’t stay in here no more (Move on)
I’m tired of the tears (It’s done)
I deserve a little peace (Go on)

Your access is restricted
Move on outta my head babe
You’ve been evicted

Pack your shit. Get the fuck out
You’re not welcome anymore
You gotta go. Now is the time
Changing locks on all the doors
I’m tearing up the lease (You’re out)
Can’t stay in here no more (Move on)
I’m tired of the tears (It’s done)
I deserve a little peace (Go on)

Your access is restricted
Move on outta my head babe
You’ve been evicted



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

The bouncy musical style makes the lyrical bitter pill much more palatable! Nice collab work!

Nice and jaunty. And I personally found those lyrics to be charming. Someone taking a stand and trying to improve their life... I like it. Smile The combination of jaunty music and charming lyrics is just fantastic, too. Nice collaboration! Biggrin

love it! That chorus with the bvox (move on) is fantastic..as is the way you go low on "evicted." The whole thing makes me wanna get up and dance. I really like the "lease" metaphor for a relationship. The voice is really strong here, that of someone who knows what they want and need, someone who ain't gonna put up with shit any more. Kind of like These Boots Are Made for Walking. Badass

Great metaphor! I love the upbeat, happy take on it. The call-and-response vocals are an especially nice touch.

Nice jolly number. I like the vocal and cute backing. I agree it feels like the jolliest bad news I've ever heard. Makes it interesting.
