 This is square in the category of tracks that I describe as "the song I'm 
currently fighting." The day started off with recording my backyard. There 
was no wind and the birds were going nuts at sunrise.

Started off doing some sort of ambient wash thing and put effects on the 
bird. Loaded a drum loop and it went into piano territory. Then I found 
another drum loop that was cool and angry and a guitar riff came into my 

Then it all became a mish mashy thing that I'm unhappy with, but here it 

 I do like the energy of the drums and guitar. For what it's worth, I think it 
works better as an instrumental. I left the vocal chorus in once for 
reference, but then did another chorus with just the guitar. I prefer the 
latter. Don't like the lyrics, don't like the performance...

This is also where I run up against my limitations as an engineer. I just 
don't know how to get what's in my head out and into the mix. Can't get 
the levels right and everything's competing.

So... it's not good, but it's done. :-)

I'm gonna lose my mind
I swear I must be blind
Not to have Known Your Kind
You hurt me

You got into my head
I started seeing red
Things better left unsaid
That hurt me

It's time to disengage
It's time to lose the rage
It's time to break the cage
That hurts me

I'm sick of secrecy
Wasn't your enemy
You're not my legacy
Can't hurt me now
