This is my band the Pyramid Scheme. This song was pieced together from several different ideas I had lying around on my hard drive. Various GarageBand endeavors that produced a few riffs here and there that all came together to become this song. It's about how much I hate living in Dallas.

I sing and play guitar in this song.

Food for thought eaten alive by live wires,
A proper introduction to the world I seldom cared about,
Go on take it all away, there's nothing I can't live without

Oh how you love to make us laugh
With your witty retorts and news reports
Boredom works turn off the t.v.,
Only 13 channels work,
If we can't afford an LCD screen
Throw out this technology

But don't throw me away
Don't throw me away
Because I'm not garbage
Just another animal
I swear that I was born here
Just outside the city
They told me not to go there on my own
Because there really isn't much to see

There's weather in my neighborhood
It's cold and then it burns
A heads up on this would be good
Turn on the news and what do I learn?
It's raining hard, the ground is cold
Guard the infants and the old
That's all that's going on around my city
Oh dear Lord, I think it's finally hit me

radiohead " ok computer" verse with "pablo honey" guitar flurries. I sometimes feel the lyrics somehow drag a little along, but this is a pretty intense, impressive song.

This is well produced. LIke the fact that you took the parts and made something so well put together. Alot of energy in this. Excellent!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think there is very good production in this song. I am particularly fond of the guitar sound. In terms of mix, my ears were a bit surprised by the guitar part before the "there's weather in my neighbourhood..." - perhaps a bit too loud on my speakers. Well balanced mix otherwise - well done!

nice indie alt sound you have. the oooohs in the background really warm it up. Your vocal is great. The guitars sound big, and you come up with some great meshing chords on the chorus. Drums are steller!

Nice fist in the air
My East Tennessee is your Dallas. Meet you up north in YankeeLand one day. This has a nice, sharp avant garage construction - but not in a trendy way, it's good powerful rock. Plus the passion equals a hit IMHO. thanks for the DL.
