Liner Notes: 

Another posthumous song skirmish with the Catalytic Perverters. We came up with the music last night. It took about 12 minutes for us to get the recorded take.
This morning, I chose the next superskirmish thread which I had not yet looked at. This time it was D and the prompt was "on the shelf." 30 Minutes later, I had a demo with vocals.

Lyrics: 

You put me on the shelf
just let me sit there
now I gather dust
seems like you don't care

Pick me up and take me down
hold me tight and spin me 'round
tell me there's nobody else
please don't leave me on the shelf

Sometimes you look at me
as I sit there
I wonder what you see
I'm fully unaware

Pick me up and take me down
hold me tight and spin me 'round
tell me there's nobody else
please don't leave me on the shelf

You put me on the shelf
just let me sit there
now I gather dust



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

LOVE the energy to this track. Great take on the skirmish prompt-- glad it could inspire you a little! I love the 'on the shelf' as a metaphor for being ignored in a relationship.
