Lyrics
You...

I feel my pulse is slowing

And I feel my mind is slipping

Into the numbing darkness

That consumes my very soul



This weight of black compulsion

On my chest is so oppressive

That the air is thick with blood and

All my guts clench tight with holes



I feel that it's going nowhere

This road is all we have

We bear our cross to darkness

Nails take our hope away

If love was not the answer

I know not where I stand

My heart's a bleeding question

I hold in dying hands



I never thought of what "could have been"

If I just closed my eyes and didn't let it happen



Death becomes me now

I don't feel ready

I can't imagine how

it would become me



(I never thought of what "could have been"

If I just closed my eyes and didn't let it happen

I never thought of what "could have been"

If I just closed my eyes and didn't let it happen)



I put my heart up for an auction

wrenched it out of my own chest

Tried to bleed out all my sickness

Give my pain a final rest



But the highest bidder slashed it

Let the pieces hit the floor

Cut it up to tiny fragments

That he's nailing to the door



Never once imagined

As the blood seeps through the wood

This noose I've tied around my neck

Has never felt so good



I'm letting go of all my reasons

Dying out the final flame

My lips are turning violent blue

They stutter out your name



Your pretense cut me open

And exposed me like a knife

The coldest perfect surgeon

Who would slice away my life



This excuses nothing

As the air gets thick and cold

My lungs are freezing up now

And I'm choking from the mold



Breathing out, breathing in

Singing out my eulogies

For seven deadly sins



It's the hearts you break

It's the life you make



I feel that it's going nowhere

This road is all we have

We bear our cross to darkness

Nails take our hope away

If love was not the answer

I know not where I stand

My heart's a bleeding question

I hold in dying hands



I...

Have resigned

My love to death

There is no repentance here

I lay on an altar

Of whores and souvenirs

Scars made into keepsakes



You will never see these tears

Rust and dust hide memories

Pain erases all me fears

Drowning in these agonies



(If love was not the answer

I know not where I stand

My heart's a bleeding question

I hold in dying hands

Singing out my eulogies

For seven deadly sins

It's the hearts you break

It's the life you make)

No rest for the wicked
This song is kickin some serious mood ring vibe. Red, red, red...the power of the voices blending is a bit frightening. Scary fun

Re: No rest the wicked
Yes, Addison's lyrics are so descriptive and such! She has great talent when it comes to writing! And I think her vocal work on this song is great! Thank you so much for listening!

Outstanding arrangement and production. Great use of dynamics. Killer drum track. Very original and well written song.

I like the vocal and the lyrics. I'd prefer to hear Addison without the pitch correction, other effects, and low screaming. It's clear she's an excellent singer and I'd like to hear her explore the natural musical quality of her voice.

But keep in mind those are just my opinions and I'm very old.

Re: Eulogies For The Sinner
Thank you! And I can understand the autotune being a bothersome point. I tend to think it's cool here with the screaming. The raw hardness of the screaming with the very sythesized non-organicness of the autotune is a very interesting combination in my mind. But these are all just our own opinions, which nobody should look down upon. We are all allowed to think whatever we want. Opinions make the work go round! Thank you for listening!

I like the imagery in the lyric "My heart's a bleeding question". The backer sounds good, nice job on the drums. Vocs/harmonies sound great.

pretty crazy heavy stuff but really likable and well written, vocals are cool and fit great. great feel. would have liked to hear a solo but not a full on shred solo just one that repeats the vocal harmony or something similar. enjoyed it. cheers.

Re: sinner
Thanks! When you say solo do you mean like on a guitar? If so that is an interesting idea... Hmmm... Well thank you for listening!

singing and screaming
Hahaha. Yes. A big production. The vocal melody is really nice. I can hear what you are going for here, but the basic idea is obscured by the overactive drum track. It's very good, but it doesn't seem to suit the song. I know you don't want to flatten the drums completely, and make it into a pop tune. The drums can still be rocking, but a steady groove during the vocal sections would help bring out the melodic goodness. Also, I think you could improve this by eliminating the autotune pitch-shifter thing on your lead vocal. Some of the echo effects are well done. Good composition. Keep up the good work.

Re: singing and screaming
Yeah, this one took me a while to put together... Addison on the other hand? She whipped up the lyrics and vocals in less a than a week! Maybe just a weekend? I was quite impressed! And honestly, I think the drums are fitting for it. We wanted a really heavy intense feel for the song, and I think the drums help give it that last step that it really needed to get there. Thanks for the feedback and for listening!

Nice Work
As usual, I LOVE your voice, Addison. Your lyrics are awesome. I'm the second person that is going to point out that "my heart's a bleeding question" is an excellent line. I'm a singer and a songwriter, so of course, the first thing that I noticed were the interesting arrangement of words to music. Very cool. I was wondering if you've ever listened to a band named Kitty. I know I'm about 8 years your senior, but when I was around your age, they were pretty popular. An all female metal band of sorts. This reminds me a little of them. Great job, Jess at arranging the back track. I'm obsessed with drums myself, so I greatly enjoyed that part as well. Addsion: Ever heard of Opeth? These lyrics remind me of some of theirs...of course, most "death metal" lyrics are pretty descriptive and bloody. This song fits right in! I wonder, does Strains of Caine (this is your band, no?) do more stuff like this?
StrainsOfCaine said 2449 days ago (August 11th, 2010)
Re: Nice Work
I own all of Kittie's albums, and I am also a huge fan of The Agonist and Otep :) Opeth is pretty awesome. Thank you for your positive critique!! And if I had any sort of musical talent aside from vocals, yes, I wish Strains Of Caine could do more along the line of death metal.

Re: Nice Work
Thank you! So glad you liked this! And even though Addison's more of the one with the knowledge of such bands, I actually have heard of Kitty... Somebody showed me some of their stuff on a bus ride to some pep band thing I could've cared less about. Thanks for listening and commenting! It means a lot!

THANK YOU JESS!
I am so thankful I got a chance to work with you on this! It turned out even more awesome than I could have hoped! :D I love the effects you put over my vox to make them "grittier"... ad I think the drum track is killer! Thanks so much! Can't wait to do more.

Re: THANK YOU JESS!
No problem! This was so much fun to do with you, and it was a great achievement for the both of us! I can't wait to do another as well! Thankfully today is my last day of work for the week... *sigh* So hopefully I can pull together another piece. Anything specific in mind? :)

Wow!
You gals really tore it up on this one. Addison you really do have a gift! That is awesome. I really really like the harmonies; they are a kind of split personality type of thing. That is great.

Really cool backdrop too. The drums are kicking. Nice work!

I'm glad that I didn't miss this one!
