Liner Notes

I couldn't figure out if this one was going to be deep or trite, and in the end it landed somewhere in-between...

I like the guitar part but not the lyrics, and the demo quality is rough - 1st pass for guitar and vocals and 2nd for the overdubbed arpeggios - but that's what FAWM is all about, right?

Lyrics

I’ve been told I’m unusual
I’ve been told I’m unbearable
I’ve been told I can be intense
I’ve been told I’m not making sense

I’ve been told I need to get out more
Then I’ve been told not to slam the door
I’ve been told we all have a choice
And my teacher said don’t use passive voice

OK, active voice then…

People say I’m often out of line
And they tell me I should take more time
To think before I embarrass myself
Still others say I’m too hard on myself

So tell me, what’s on my mind?
Can you tell me how to feel, do you have the time?

Now I can tell you how to make the grade
And I can tell you how napalm’s made
And I can show you how to build a car
Though I can’t really promise it will take you far

So tell me, what’s on my mind?
Can you tell me how to feel, do you have the time?
Now tell me, is there something wrong?
‘Cuz we’re running out of time, it’s the end of this song
