Description
I posted this song ages ago and really rushed the mix. It ended up sounding like a stereo playing in a tin box. So, I promised myself one day I'd take my time and do a proper remix/master, and this is the day! This is quite the Flaming Lips ripoff, and though it's 2 chords over and over again and again, it remains a personal favorite of mine. It's meant to be a hidden track tongue-in-cheek kinda piece, but if you read the lyrics it's actually a pretty sad song.

Lyrics
The Last Chorus (You Can Have it All)

Someone grab me by the feet
And pull me dowwwwwwwwwwwwwwn to Earth
Cuz I've got one thing left to do here
I'm not ready to go... oh, no

Heaven's gonna have to wait for me
a little longer can't they see?
I'm not ready to leave... just yet

I have got this one last song to sing
Then they can give me angel's wings
And I will fly to them.. and then

You can have it all

I'm coming to the last chorus
And after that it's time to go
But I will leave you everything
Everything I've got

and as I take my final bow
I can feel them hovering around me
They are waiting for the last words
that I have to sing.... and here they are:

You can have it all

I'm leaving but don't you worry
Everything will be okay
I'm leaving but my soul lives on
I've left it for you in this here song

You can have it all

Cool tune
Sounds like the drums may be a bit hot though. They seem to be overdriving. But other than that, the singing and songwriting are as always, excellent. Loved it.

hot
thanks. i guess I should have mentioned it in the description cuz I figured it would come up - i ran the drums through the CamelCrusher plugin to get that overdriven hot sound, so it was intentional. i guess it's not everyone's cup of tea, but it's exactly what I was going for. glad you dug the song anyway though and thanks for the feedback!

flaming feet
i agree it's always worth the time to go back and reappraise some of the older songs. trippy textures and effects add a nice touch

bzzzz
I always like songs with radical sound choices. So that does it for me. Great lyrics as well.

Nice picture. both a fight and a dance.

I can hear that. Words are really cool here.

Marvelous stuff

A touch of
...Sparklehorse here too. Very nice. Vocal choices are excellent and the new mix is very sweet. It makes me consider going back to some of my older stuff and start experimenting.
Top tune as ever Ridd.

ahhh
the revisit. Look at all the "w"s in the lyrics. I've said it a hundred times, but I love when the sad mood of lyrics doesn't match up with the tone of the song. It's the musical equivalent of a Poe story. The horror and chills in a setting of a party or carnival.

I don't think it's sad at all
in fact, I think it's cool, in a not-gonna-go-quietly kind of way: Heaven's gonna have to wait for ME, 'cause I have one last song to sing. You tell 'em, Ridd. Cheers, Richard
