Song: Diggin' Out – “Reflections on being buried alive”

Liner notes

I think the chords came first here... after the general idea of what the song was going to be about, that is. A pretty dark chord progression, I guess. I don't think I've ever written another song that used only minor chords.

This was really hard to play on the guitar. It's full of bar chords and I hadn't been playing a lot of guitar before... so the guitar tracks are taped together somewhat haphazardly. The vocals, on the other hand, despite not with very good technique, are exactly as I envisioned them: weak in the beginning, desperate/breaking in the end.

The mix is completely free of reverb.

Eyes open, no light It's darker than night How did I get here [I was asleep] My mind is not clear [still counting sheep] No diggin' out No one's about And no one can hear me shout Walls closing in I cannot win And tomorrow won't begin It won't begin Buried in the ground My heartbeat, no other sound Wood all around me [in coffin shape] Airtight completely [I can't escape] No diggin' out...

I'm not asking you that because I'm so incredibly vain... honestly! It's to prevent generic spam machines from unloading their freight here. Your feedback will only be accepted if you answer this correctly.
