Default The Operator


You had no time
To keep it down-time,
I was waiting in line
Fighting back...
From the outside.

Some of our friends
Said you had loose ends,
So this love is not made
For you and I.

Chorus
Itís a long way to go
Before we get home,
Iím hanging from a rope
With nowhere to roam.
Well, I seem to always
End up on your ground,
Such issues remade
Into a mountain of ice,
Living is harder...
When youíre stuck
On the outside.

Hey there operator,
You made your mark on me
Never underestimate the
Very best I can be!

chorus

It doesnít get better
Oh, maybe youíre just
As sick as me. (x4)

Chorus

Yeah a lot less abstract than some of your stuff. So a dunce like me can digest it.

'maybe you're just as sick as me'

To me it's like we latch onto people who are just as fucked up as we are, anything else is a mismatch. Be interesting to see how it is put to a beat -- modest-bot.

no i don't record stuff lately... but i have a mild melody for it. kinda edm, kinda sweet. thanks for reading guys!!!

@john c, that part about people's flaws... just matching ourselves with messed up folk turns us into less messed up folk, if only by comparison. i think that's why we keep them bitches around.

Look... the thing is, with digital media, the whole thing is time stamped. Nobody could steal your stuff without eventually paying for it. Okay, they could variate your concept, but that would imply your concept is stunningly original. I have known maybe a thousand working musicians in my time, and I can honestly say there wasnít one who was ďstunninglyĒ original.

So... I think you should post something. Just pull it from SoundCloud into an AAV file and Dropbox it. That way only we can hear.

There's always a chance someone will try to lift your work. It can happen at any level.

The chance that the idea somehow becomes a song that gets a significant audience is slim to none -- and that's the only way you would ever know about it -- and then the process of showing plagiarism is long and expensive.

It's pointless to worry about it -- especially if you're just posting it here from google drive or if you post it on YouTube and make it so it can't be searched.

I just wrote something and added a rolling farfisa organ rythm part. Without thinking, I just automatically sang over it in a baritone. Then I was like, oh shit, I just did a Doors song...
