It's another DBlank/Domino joint!
As with Future Hearts, I used the title of DBlankMusic's instrumental to craft some carpe diem-ish lyrics, but went less Bowie with the vocals this time and more myself. There's still lots of open space, so I'd love for people to get in on remixing!
SINGERS/RAPPERS: Add melodic or rapped counterpoints to the breaks in vocal parts.
MUSICIANS: Add instrumental counterpoints to the breaks in vocal melodies. Also, I was originally going to record a sax solo for the outro, but chose to leave it open for you all to interpret it however you want to!
Key is the neighborhood of C minor, and I pegged the tempo at 108.510 *shakes fist at DBlank*
No decorations but a bed and a desk
Just instruments in this room
And in the kitchen, if you open the fridge
All condiments and no food
Your degradation rolls right off of my chest
And evaporates with the dew
‘Cos my interpretation is that you lack happiness
And the pity is aimed back at you
If you lock up that open windowsill
You may find out it’s you that time will kill
I’m ensuring that all my attempts are not in vain
No, not today
I may be pauper, but I sing the night away
‘Cos that’s the good life
Go ensure that all of your attempts are not in vain
No, not today
Find your constellation, and do whatever it takes
Don’t fear the good life
Your inhibitions keep you locked in a cage
Of what you think life should be
A stubborn subscription to traditional ways
Or just whatever’s easy
This expedition that defines our days
Should brim with realized fantasies
So choose well your mission; let things fall where they may
I’m wishing you godspeed
If you swallow the keys to magic doors
You won’t truly know what you’re living for
Working file contains all raw and effected vocals stems as well as my music edit. Oh, and first one to catch the Fight Club reference wins a pony!
