Song: Humanity – “Letting people suffer is good”

Liner notes

So, this started out as a track driven by classical guitar, but then grew into something with a lot more vocals. Then the electric guitar magically appeared, first in the chorus and then in the second verse.

The seed of this song was the phrase "up to seventy". I have no idea where the rest came from, but the thrown in vocals in the chorus developed very early.

Time to prepare, spectators on their way Full schedule, many folks to treat today They've been staying for so long For some reason it feels wrong But now it's time they pay Give them a show that they'll never see [again] Crank the power up to seventy [percent] They'll stay conscious for what feels like eternity But not to me You already know, it's not about the death It's about when they wish for their last breath Damnation is what suffering removes And the audience approves Give them a show that they'll never see [again] Crank the power up to seventy [percent] Most of the watchers can't contain their glee Until the salvaged soul goes free We're not cruel, we just want to make sure That he will suffer long enough so he'll become pure There cannot be another cure So we will happily endure all the screams as the seams of his dreams break apart along with his heart Give them a show that they'll never see [again] Crank the power up to seventy [percent] You're so humane in the best ways there can be There's no one who'd disagree

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.
