Anticipation for the Flames

The Lyrics

It’s so cold
I won’t mind
when I’m burnt
by the flames…
thrown into the pit

Here I wait
Here I sit
I’m waiting, I’m wondering
I want to die in a horrific way
I want to die today

I’m waiting, I’m wondering
When Death will reach
and grab ahold of me
It’s so cold
Cutting right
into the bone

Where Can We Hide When Our Defenses Are Down?

“Where Can We Hide When Our Defenses Are Down?” is a more complete demo compared to “The Grass is Sometimes Grayer on the Other Side.” However, in no way is this demo yet complete. For instance, the Synth Guitar will “probably” be replaced with a real guitar for live shows, an acoustic guitar could dampen the mood a bit more, and lyrics will be written and they will be meaningful. Enough said. Enjoy!

Update – Synthtron version available

Okay, so we had several legit complaints. A couple individuals were displeased with our choice of electric pianos. To please these individuals, we provided them with a synthtron version of the song.

Cyborg Cassowary hopes they and you enjoy the new version of “Where Can We Hide When Our Defenses Are Down?”.

Mistaken for Strangers

Lyrics

You have to do it running but you do everything that they ask you to
‘Cause you don’t mind seeing yourself in a picture
As long as you look far away
As long as you look removed

Showered and blue-blazered
Fill yourself with quarters
Showered and blue-blazered
Fill yourself with quarters

You get mistaken for strangers by your own friends
When you pass them at night under the silvery, silvery Citibank lights
Arm in arm in arm and eyes and eyes glazing under
Oh, you wouldn’t want an angel watching over, surprise, surprise, they wouldn’t wanna watch
Another uninnocent, elegant fall into the unmagnificent lives of adults

Make up something to believe in your heart of hearts
So you have something to wear on your sleeve of sleeves
So you swear you just saw a feathery woman
Carry a blindfolded man through the trees

Showered and blue-blazered
Fill yourself with quarters
Showered and blue-blazered
Fill yourself with quarters

You get mistaken for strangers by your own friends
When you pass them at night under the silvery, silvery Citibank lights
Arm in arm in arm and eyes and eyes glazing under
Oh, you wouldn’t want an angel watching over, surprise, surprise, they wouldn’t wanna watch
Another uninnocent, elegant fall into the unmagnificent lives of adults

You get mistaken for strangers by your own friends
When you pass them at night under the silvery, silvery Citibank lights
Arm in arm in arm and eyes and eyes glazing under
Oh, you wouldn’t want an angel watching over, surprise, surprise, they wouldn’t wanna watch
Another uninnocent, elegant fall into the unmagnificent lives of adults

I’m Afraid of Everyone

The Nationals Cover by Cyborg Cassowary. Lyrics included.

 

Lyrics

Then I’m radio and then I’m television
I’m afraid of everyone, I’m afraid of everyone
Lay the young blue bodies with the old red bodies
I’m afraid of everyone, I’m afraid of everyone
With my kid on my shoulders I try
Not to hurt anybody I like
But I don’t have the drugs to sort,
I don’t have the drugs to sort it out, sort it out

I defend my family with my orange umbrella
I’m afraid of everyone, I’m afraid of everyone
With my shiny new starspangled tennis shoes on
I’m afraid of everyone, I’m afraid of everyone
With my kid on my shoulders I try
Not to hurt anybody I like
But I don’t have the drugs to sort,
I don’t have the drugs to sort it out, sort it out
I don’t have the drugs to sort it out, sort it out

Little voices swallowing my soul, soul, soul

An Ambient Demo Track composed with Violin Echos and iPad Apps

This is the third time that Kate and I got together and we recorded a very short ambient demo track. We successful composed it with Reverse Echo effects on the Violin with the Line 6 Echo Park meanwhile utilizing the Nlog Pro played via Soundprism Pro on the iPad. Currently, there is no title to the demo track recorded on July 5th. Therefore, the track will be called Demo Track July 5th 2014 until Kate and me reach a final decision on the title.

Instruments and Effects for Demo Track:
