I am trying the RPM February Challenge in which I have to write and record a whole album (10 songs or 35 minutes of music) this month. I hope I can do it.

The first two songs are pretty synth-y, and yes I know.. this is not ultimate-synth.com. I just wanted to share some new stuff, even though guitar is more in the background on these tracks. This Fade was done in two sessions, and Cyclops was done in one. This Fade is serious and Cyclops is quite silly though the music is serious.

Lyrics:


Cyclops


you got a round eye in the middle of your forehead
you're 11 feet tall and you smell like death
but somehow you seem to have taken a shine to me
i'd let you kiss me but I can't get over your breath

you're a cyclops!
what do you see in me?

you're just too damned tall to sleep in my bed
don't even get your hopes up, there's no way I'd let you in
i know you must need affection, you won't get it from me
call me heartless, you can call me anything
but the fact stands:

you're a cyclops!
what do you see in me?

do you envy my two eyes
and the way I don't scare people away?
It must suck when they run screaming,
"AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA CYCLOPS!!!"

you're a cyclops!
what do you see in me?

This Fade

when the notes and the letters stop
and there's no message on the phone
he longs for the day she comes around
and wakes up
but he knows it's all in his head

it's too early for this fade
the song's not long enough
it's too early for this fade

he bites his tongue, but cruel words come out
always pushing everyone away
he thinks.. they'd be better off without him
lighten the load
but strangely, some want him to stay

it's too early for this fade
the song's not long enough
it's too early for this fade
the song's not long enough

the days go on, and he's more confused
will it always by this way
he wishes he could be somebody else
someone better
but he stays here and wastes another day

it's too early for this fade
the song's not long enough
it's too early for this fade
the song's not long enough
