about

Much like "Clamface", this was my juvenile attempt to make a "heavy" track. Point of reference for the vocals was Henry Rollins, and not really the Black Flag iteration, but more the Rollins Band in "Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3" iteration. I believe the song was called "What's The Matter Man?". It's not very good. After adding about a zillion guitar overdubs, I figured I might as well go all out and brought the keyboard to do some nasty sounding 90's synth bass. Not exactly fast, but not a slog either. I quite like this song for how odd it turned out, it was revived for 2016 sets.

lyrics

depression breeds depression
real effort breeds success
your ambition is much too low
you'll never depart from the rest

there's no reason
to ponder
with everyday to lose
when you fall
i'll laugh all the way through

sink or swim
or never find out
but the moment has passed
and you fatally drowned

so sink or swim
or never found out
but the moment has passed
we forgot about you

and when you're down
i'll spit on you
stagnation must be comfy
no doubt it'll be true
with lazy potential
of a failure's lure (to)

sink or swim
or never find out
but the moment has passed
and you fatally drowned

so sink or swim
or never found out
but the moment has passed
and you fatally drowned

forgot about you
(forgot about)
forgot about you
(forgot about)
we forgot about you
(forgot about)
oh, we forgot about you...

we forgot about you!
oh we forgot about you!
oh we forgot about you!
oh we forgot about you!
oh we forgot about you!
