So the new EP, "the beautifulside of ugly" is in production right now. And it turns out, I need some help.
I wrote this song called October Sky (not based on the movie, FYI) and I composed this part that sounds really good...just not if it was rapped out.
So here's the idea: I need a really talented female singer (who knows what they're doing) to sing this part. Here's the lyrics with the part highlighted (copyright MC Larny...no biting)
Watch this empire crumble underneath it’s own weightTrying to prevent the inevitable, fighting a war against fateIt’s the end of a dream, dying in my handsA lifetime of hope that slips like time’s sandsI knew today would eliminate tomorrow by designI could’ve prevented this, but I was delusional, at the timeWith all that’s transpired, I just want to expire with my disgraceFade out without a doubt in my mind, I’m not going to see the end of this race
(chorus)And this ghost of you haunts me, underneath the October skyI can still see this all, in the back of my eyeI wish you would leave, believe that I don’t care for youBut my lips can’t be trusted, and these careless whispers are untrue
The silence is deafening, and I am without my sanityMy reflection distorted, no honesty, just the picture of vanityA picture of everything that could’ve been, should’ve beenThe fact that I threw this away on a whim, for something where victory is so slimThis reflection lies to me, at the moment I need that truth, that proofThat where I’m going does not include us, just myself in solitudeThe disconnection is so abrupt and sudden, it could be rudeBut I have to, for myself this time
(chorus 2) x2Where have you run to, where have you gone?My fears have come true, we won’t be together for long
Standing over the mess I’ve created, I hate itEvery inch, every second, I look back and I flinchIt was never supposed to end like this, I whisper to a chorus of ambienceAnd then, this decision all makes senseThis city is so beautiful, especially in the nightIt looks so much more wonderful, when it’s burning so brightAs I see everything I care about leave my life in minutes of ignition that loses controlA ghost rises from the ashes, that has become a parasite, feeding off my soulAnd now the memories are the poison, I fear I can’t find a remedyWhen the October sky hangs overhead, I hear the ghastly melody
(Chorus 3)And this ghost of you haunts me [Where have you run to…]underneath this October skyI can still see this all [where have you gone…] in the back of my eyeI wish you would leave [My fears have come true….] believe that I can’t care for youBut my lips can’t be trusted [we won’t be together for long] and these careless whispers are untrue
Sounds good? Then here's what I need:
- Record a demo version of just the highlighted parts. Do it the way you feel would be "best" for the song.
- Sound quality isn't an issue. If I can hear you, then good.
- Email it to "m.c.larny at gmail.com". Subject Line: October Sky Demo. Have a return address included, and if you have a MySpace or another website to display your music, include that in the email.
- If it sounds like what I'm thinking works, I'll contact you and you'll be invited to record.
