Liner Notes: 

The Songfight prompt due yesterday was "Pocket Full Of Bones" and Amanda and I put this together. The mix is rushed, but it's in.... late.... but in.

Lyrics: 

I shoulda been a sociopath
But that sounds messy, like a lotta math
Coulda been a poet, about the same
So many ways to describe the blame

Where’s the line for the weirdos and the freaks?
For the puzzles that are missin’ a piece?

V2
Really wanted to be a rock star
Me, a thousand people, and this guitar
Yeah, I’ve been a dreamer most my life
I guess I never quite realized

How to clean my wounds, heal my scars
But I think I know where to start

C
Get a pocket full of bones of my enemies
Dance upon the grave of who I used to be
I’m mostly left-handed psychologically
A beautifully repurposed melody

I refuse to let common sense cloud my judgement
Cuz we got places we gotta be
My pocket full of bones and me

V3
Woulda been a great fortune teller
But I can’t get my own shit together
So I think I'll become a hermit instead
No one to bug me, nothing to dread

I’m fine with sitting here all alone
Revel in the joy of being unknown

C
With a pocket full of bones of my enemies
Dancing on the grave of who I used to be
I’m mostly left-handed psychologically
A beautifully repurposed melody

I refuse to let common sense cloud my judgement
Cuz we got places we gotta be
My pocket full of bones and me



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

This is a great exploration of the darker side of rock and roll. The implications of the whole devil-at-the-crossroads thing would probably take you down the road where "a pocket full of bones" wasn't an allusion to dice but something very literal. A very cool collab, folks!
