This song is not in a battle


A cover of the iconic song of the 90's by Harvey Danger. This song brings me great nostalgia from my childhood. Every time it would come on the radio, my mom would turn it off, because I would sing along to it, and she didn't like me saying "god damn you" at the end of the second verse. I just bought a bass guitar, so I wanted to find a song with an easy bass line to do my first bass recording.

Lyrics:
VERSE1
i had visions, i was in them
i was looking into the mirror
to see a little bit clearer
rottenness and evil in me

fingertips have memories
mine can't forget the curves of your body
and when i feel a bit naughty
i run it up the flagpole and see who salutes
(but no one ever does)

CHORUS1
i'm not sick but i'm not well
and i'm so hot cause i'm in hell

VERSE2
been around the world and found
that only stupid people are breeding
the cretins cloning and feeding
and i don't even own a tv
put me in the hospital for nerves
and then they had to commit me
you told them all i was crazy
they cut off my legs now i'm an amputee, god damn you

CHORUS2
i'm not sick but i'm not well
and i'm so hot cause i'm in hell
i'm not sick but i'm not well
and it's a sin to live so well

BRIDGE
i wanna publish zines
and rage against machines
i wanna pierce my tongue
it doesn't hurt, it feels fine
the trivial sublime
i'd like to turn off time
and kill my mind
you kill my mind

VERSE 3
paranoia paranoia
everybody's coming to get me
just say you never met me
i'm going underground with the moles
hear the voices in my head
i swear to god it sounds like they're snoring
but if you're bored then you're boring
the agony and the irony, they're killing me

CHORUS 3
i'm not sick but i'm not well
and i'm so hot cause i'm in hell
i'm not sick but i'm not well
and it's a sin to live so well

Hey your vox are improving all the time.

Can't pick out the bass very well, how are you recording it?

Great drums.

Nice job
