hey pit

well my band is recording in 2 days, but we just realised that our best song, which is called 'They Want Our Souls', has some hidden meaning that we did not intend. (say 'our souls' a few times).

until we change this, we cant take this song seriously as it complete changes the meaning and makes it sound more like a homoerotic rape fest than anything else. so pit i ask you, do you have any ideas? atm the chorus goes:

they want our souls,
for what we do not know
they want our souls
and will drag them down below

I don't think anyone else would have realised if you said our souls really fast it sounds like assholes.

I think you should call it 'they want arseholes'. That way, you avoid any ambiguity.

Your band has been living a lie. Do you feel free now?
None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.

I like it the way it is. Don't let an inside joke between you and your band mess up a good song. But if you're really serious about changing it, just change our to your. One little letter change eliminates the "arseholes" sounding line.
Out here you've gotta know where your towel is!

Best thing all day.
I say keep it, or maybe slow them two words down, or if not, emphasize the word "souls" (say it louder, or with more punch, or maybe more gently, whatever fits in), so it splits it up.

New version:
"They want their souls
Which is quite understandable really"
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.
