Liner Notes: 

Another posthumous song skirmish with the Catalytic Perverters. We improvised the music last night. It took us as long as it runs to create it.
Today I opened up the next superskirmish thread that i hadn't viewed yet. It was E. E had an interesting prompt, which I am going to try and not think about until I get a chance to revisit it.
So that led me to superskirmish thread F, where the prompt was "Wake Up" or "Distance." I opted for "distance" and worked "wake up" into the bridge. It took me about 35 minutes to write and record the vocals and mix the song.

Lyrics: 

Arm's length or across the ocean
put distance between your emotion

Distance between us
you'd think that it should be meaningless
but I'm uncertain
wonder if it's worth it?
So long and so far
just to get to where we are
so much further
how much time is left?

Arm's length or across the ocean
put distance between your emotion
task the truth of true devotion
time will test your love/hate notion

So long and so far
just to get to where we are
so much further
wonder if it's worth it?
Distance between us
you'd think that it should be meaningless
but I'm uncertain
how much time is left?

Wake up, we'll never go the distance
we'll never go the distance
Wake up, we'll never go the distance
go the distance

Arm's length or across the ocean
put distance between your emotion
task the truth of true devotion
time will test you



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