Part 4: Our Upcoming Debut


Okay, then. Looks like our first *real* show will be this Saturday, the 17th, at Doc’s in Muncie (see the happenings calendar for more info). Cheap white russians and cheese pizzas, two fellow bands that sound pretty good (James Brown Car Alarm and Know More Robots), and good times for all concerned.

Also, here’s a crappy concert poster. When we get my little brother designing these for us, the quality and creativity will shoot way up.

In other news: we finally have a song up on MySpace: the first we wrote, Ghost. The sound quality is pretty bad because it’s just the audio track ripped from a camcorder recording us playing at the Zombie Dance Party. It feels like we played this song slightly faster than we normally do, but you can at least get the gist of our sound now. MySpace!

Also, because I’m a lyrics guy, here’s a transcription of the lyrics:

one last breath as i slowly slip away
one last step into permanent decay
lying here in my hospital bed
the darkness surrounds me, i’m dead… deadeadeadead!

no where left to run
on a double dead end drive
a cemetery’s so alive your blood runs cold
and i’m told that when you die you don’t cry
but my tears keep falling

no time left to beg or borrow oh woh oh oh
i’m the ghost of tragedy, haunted by my memory

CHORUS:
mourn me, forget me
i’m lying in my bed as i walk amongst the dead
regardless, i’m nameless
another casualty among the bodies on the scene, woh oh

nothing’s left, only hopeless thoughts remain
nothing’s changed yeah but nothing stayed the same
on and on like a voice in my head
the echo of knowing you’re dead…. deadeadeadead!

standing all alone
on a double dead end drive
you’re left so suddenly filled with regret
and all you get is paradise for the price
of your second chances

no time left to beg or borrow oh oh oh
i’m the ghost of tragedy, haunted by eternity

CHORUS:
mourn me, forget me
i’m lying in my bed as i walk amongst the dead
regardless, i’m nameless
another casualty among the bodies on the scene woh oh

BREAK (sung by Foster):
you’ll find relief in the things you believe in
but don’t you believe what you’re told
it’s more realistic that you’re a statistic
whose soul has already been sold
[[choir ahhs ]]
(please remember me, if just to forget me
please remember me, i’m begging you please)

CHORUS:
mourn me, forget me
i’m lying in my bed as i walk amongst the dead
regardless, i’m nameless
another casualty among the bodies on the scene woh oh

mourn me, forget me
i’m lying in my bed as i walk amongst the dead
regardless, i’m nameless
another casualty among the bodies on the scene, woh

I should make mention of the fact that Ghost is the second song in a seven-song storyline. This is the song in which the protagonist, fed up with his seemingly meaningless life and the way society apparently manufactures us to all be the same, kills himself. I don’t really agree with the views of the story, but the songs are fun to play!
