Liner Notes: 

Back in the Jelly Factory after a brief hiatus. I'm now working on getting collaborations completed. I have quite a few in the works and I'm determined to see them through completion. Here is a number by the one and only @musicsongwriter aka Nadia Cripps. We have made wonderful music together and I don't think that's going to end anytime soon! Smile Acid Pro has really fallen off the table. I find it useful every now and then for a quick idea, but then I try to get it to do something it can no longer do. However, for this track, it wasn't too bad as I was going for a "distress, reverb-y sound".

How I did it:
Recorded and mixed using Acid Pro 6
Final mixdown completed with Studio One Professional
Bass: Ibanez 5 string
Drum and percussion programming: Me and Loop Assistant
Virtual Instrument: Piano
MIDI controller: Alesis
Vocals: me
Lyrics: Nadia
FX: SOS morse code and sonar sounds courtesy of Freesound.org

Lyrics: 

Rescue me, oh yeah
Rescue me, oh yeah
Rescue me, oh yeah
Rescue me, oh yeah

Rescue me from this fate
Rescue me before it's 2 late
Rescue me I beg of U
Rescue me from this world so blue

Rescue me, oh yeah
Rescue me, oh yeah
Rescue me, oh yeah
Rescue me, oh yeah

I feel so low
Without U
Life is dull like a pathetic show
Without U

Rescue me, oh yeah
Rescue me, oh yeah
Rescue me, oh yeah
Rescue me, oh yeah

Rescue me, oh yeah
Rescue me, oh yeah
Rescue me, oh yeah
Rescue me, oh yeah

One thing I really like about this song is that I had no idea what was coming next... and I liked everything that came next. Very nice and creative collaboration.

I love the morse code, even better 8 hadn't read the liner notes! Nice one guys!

the music is ideal for the repetitive lyric, and the employment of the morse code is inspired. there is a tenacity in the lyric that surfaces in lthe line life is dull like a pathetic show, the sparseness of such line in a lyric that is essentially a mantra makes them even stronger,

I agree with @oneslowtyper on all accounts.
The unique sound created by the rhythm track, bass patterns, and the single note piano hits lend themselves to Nadia's lyrics. When I saw them when she posted them before, I knew they could be utilized in all kinds of styles. I appreciate the production here, and your harmonies are on point as always. The track remained interesting with subtle changes and carried by the vocals.

The vocals really stand out in this song with a powerful message showing that, in the end, that’s what we all want. The repetition works well. Great delivery!

This is hypnotic. Which of course lends beautifully to the lyrics. "Rescue me from this fate" gives it all an ominous feel and the music is so intriguing. Cool stuff!
