Group #2 of the MUSC 141 class. We did some very interesting recording techniques on this one, like one ribbon mic for the piano, putting a sweater over the snare for a more muted sound, and hitting the bass drum with a makeshift mallet while recording from inside it with a condenser mic set to omni.


Young boy,
Heart ate his head,
Nothing much left,
Just a bunch of what's said.
The fear,
Lived in his heart,
Was to blame from the start,
Yeah we blamed the start.

The girl,
She was born,
In a breathing space,
Of immensity.
Far beyond,
This colorful form,
That I surrendered to,
Long ago.

In her smile,
She knows,
But those words don't,
Leave her lips.
So in,
Her tunneled eyes,
I will dive past,
The web of her,
Entangled mind.

Here I,
See the sage of life,
He's in a cage,
He has no wife.
We say please,
Give us one more try,
Give me one more try or,
In hell I'll resign.
