Have You?

Saturday, February 28th, 2015

A heavier, more industrial track for FAWM 2015. Despite spending more time on this than some of my other stuff it feels less finished. This is the best attempt at more aggressive vocals I’ve done so far.

The more repetitive lyrics are a bit different for me as well.

Lyrics

How’ve you
Stopped it going
All this time?

How’ve you
Stopped it all inside?

How’ve you stopped it
From your mind?

Have you stopped it all now?
Have you stopped it all now?
Have you stopped it all now?
Have you stopped it all now?

How long have you
Kept it going?
How long have you
Kept it going?
How long have you
Kept it all inside?
How long have you
Kept it all inside?

How do you keep yourself alive?
How do you keep yourself alive?
How do you keep yourself alive?
How do you keep yourself alive?

How do you keep yourself alive?
How do you keep yourself alive?
How do you keep yourself alive?
How do you keep yourself alive?

How long have you kept it
In your mind?
How long have you
stayed alive?

Have you
Kept it going
all this time?
Have you
Stopped it all inside?

You haven’t kept yourself alive.
You haven’t kept yourself alive.
You haven’t kept yourself alive.
You haven’t kept yourself alive.

You haven’t kept yourself alive.
You haven’t kept yourself alive.
You haven’t kept yourself alive.
You haven’t kept yourself alive.

You haven’t
Kept it going all this time.

You haven’t
Kept it all inside.

You lost yourself you are not alive.
You lost yourself you are not alive.
You lost yourself you are not alive.
You lost yourself you are not alive.
You lost …

Lyrics

Kneeling down
Driving around
Further and back again

Shimmering down
Shimmy around
Clambering out of here

Pouring around
Clanking it down
Spilling and mopless

Shimmering down
Shimmy around
Clambering out of here

Mollified crown
Arrested and drowned
Under and always away

Shimmering down
Shimmy around
Clambering out of here

Out of a sky of plasma
A sinking miasma
Streaking across the sky

Shimmering down
Shimmy around
Clambering out of here
