I see crabs at night
*

This song is not in a battle


This is for a thread I am posting called FIRST and WORST, where some of the songwriters around here that have been writing long enough to have a pretty deep catalog at this point can have a laugh about their very first and their very worst songs. In many cases they will be the same song


http://forum.bandamp.com/The_Pit/22290.html This is the thread if anyone is interested


Anyway, this is my WORST song, recorded in 2001 sometime. It's about my uncle with Parkinsons. He, apparently, saw crabs at night. Which was the original lyric, but I chickened out at the end because I realized how stupid a chorus that went "I see crabs at night" would sound. In retrospect I should have left it in, at least then people might have thought this song was a joke

Edit: Jesus, OVER SIX MINUTES! I am offering cash prizes to anyone who can get through the whole thing.


edit 2: I think these lyrics are worth a look.


Sleep is my dream
Eve haunts me
feel the cold embrace
of obscurity
so I look back
on my tender days
before I was consumed
by this gray malaise

....But I see them at night
my love, they're coming from the walls
there goes Roger, Jim, and John
by now you know I've named them all and
when they're looking down at you and
me I know I'm wearing thin
I just want to find a place where
we can live in peace again

lines on your face
drawn upon my grief
I hunger to heal
as I crave release
but I can't leave you
with this image torn
so after all, forget this face
and remember how I was before

....But I see them at night
my love, they're coming from the walls
there goes Roger, Jim, and John
by now you know I've named them all and
when they're looking down at you and
me I know I'm wearing thin
I just want to find a place where
we can live in peace again

Pretty good for a worst song. I actually like it quite a bit. Like if you cleaned up the vocals a tad and recorded it now I think it would be a really sick song. Back up vocals give it a cool sound too. even though they're kinda out of key it sounds neat. Maybe its just cause I'm a stoner, but I think its pretty sweet. lyrics are pretty cool too. Solo was tripped and the tremelo/wah at the was sweet. Even if you didn't mean it, you impresse dme with this song. Keep up the good (err... or bad I guess???) work.
