I don’t mind being nobody… Song 281

The word for today is Lo-Fi. Or is that two words? Amongst the words for today are lo and fi. Loafy. I wanted to make a rock track that sounded like it was recorded in a basement in the 80’s. I think I got it to sound right. This one was more of a sound experiment than a composition. The arrangement is very simple, drums, bass, two guitars and vocals. I didn’t do any overdubs with this one. I wanted to make it sound raw. Turned out nicely!

Song 281: “In Flames”

I don’t mind being nobody
Lists of lists ignore me

But sometimes I just have to scream

I’m going down in flames tonight
I’m going down in flames tonight

I don’t mind minding my own business
Everyone has got something

But sometimes I just have to laugh

I’m going down in flames tonight
I’m going down in flames tonight

Don’t look away, don’t look away no
Don’t look away, don’t look away no
I’m sinking down

I’m going down in flames tonight
I’m going down in flames tonight
