Lyrics

Written by Roo

You smile and try to make me Laugh about the past Like everything is fine Exhuming tales from your selective memory When we fought side by side I remember how we faced down countless enemies You always played the clown Before you double-crossed me With a dagger in the back As trolls all cut me down Once, I had kind things to say Once, till words got in the way Once, I thought you were my friend Once, but now I can't pretend And yet I wonder What they must have offered you To make you sell me out I never took you for a rat Even the thought Still makes me curse out loud I remember how we faced down countless enemies You always played the clown Before you double-crossed me With a dagger in the back As trolls all cut me down To blood and ashes To blood and ashes I spill the dregs And shake the dust off my feet To blood and ashes To blood and ashes I wash my hands of thee Once, I had kind things to say Once, till words got in the way Once, I thought you were my friend Once, but now I can't pretend

grah3am says.. Kim, if you do an "Epitaph" version, I want in. Please. {I'm a mad keen Crim fan.)

Roo says.. Thanks, Kenneth. Let's start with rhythm guitar and then build from there.

BrKnLaw says.. Love the bass on this track! What kind of guitar are you looking for? Rhythm? Lead?

Posted on May 1, 2019

Roo says.. Yep, that's a great idea, Kim. :)

Roo says.. Thanks, Graham. The fictional story behind the lyrics was inspired by a video game (Cyberpunk 2077).

kimberh says.. Ooh Graham! You have given me a new idea for my spin-off!:)

grah3am says.. I think this would also work as a much slower song. King Crimson "Epitaph" ponderous.

grah3am says.. I hope this is a DC Imaginary Story.
