about

This was a new experience songwriting for me. The primary bassline, drum idea, and all guitars were written by Bob Lautenbach - he sent me a rough demo of the parts and I wrote the song around his parts. I tracked the bass, vocals, and drums, and then sent it back to him for guitar work.

The final result is still unmistakably a demo, and technically it's not even a limesix song, but I'm really pleased with how it turned out, and it's what I've been working on musically, so here it is.

lyrics

All the times you said to me, "I don't like where this is going."
I couldn't tell anyone but you could feel it in the air.

Close the door behind you.
Don't let the cold air out.

Aching hearts know what they need. Salted landscapes are decisions.
And every word you hear me breathe, it was chosen for a reason.

Open up the air vents.
The gas is seeping in.
We're here for the duration.
So call your next of kin.

Limesix is a rock band, in the 90s tradition. They maybe sound a bit like Portastatic, Yo La Tengo, and Say Hi, hopefully with some sly nods to Prince.
