Burn - Ethan Mask (first written in 2008)

This song is about burning out and how those close to us are affected. It's about people and the ways in which we cope--writing this song being one of them.

I'd describe my music as hopeful, and that's how I hope you feel after listening. It's my hope this music can put you in a better head space, as writing it did for me.

First basic mastering attempt.

This is a new take on an old original--welcoming the baritone guitar to the family. Really like the change of atmosphere playing a baritone can provide.

Home recorded live with an AT2035 and Apex 435 through a Lexicon Omega running into Cubase 5. Guitar is an Alvarez Baritone.

Hope you enjoy,
Thanks as always for listening

lyrics

Burn (Lyrics/Poem)

"Hello there,
at least you're sober this time

Hand over,
the keys--like this,
I said you can't,
you can't drive

Oh well,
it's awesome how you twirl me around

Oh well,
it's awesome how you burn me

Oh well,
it's awesome how you turn this around

Oh well,
it's awesome how you burn me,
down

Oh...

Hello there,
at least it's over this time

Pull over,
like this--I said you can't,
you can't drive

Oh well,
it's awesome how you twirl me around

Oh well,
it's awesome how you burn

Oh hell,
it's awesome how you'll turn this around

Oh well,
it's awesome how you burn me,
down

Oh...

And it's burning,
and again and again

You are turning,
all alone in your head

It's concerning,
the time that we spend

To taste it,
and waste it,
to start over again

You can burn me all you like

I won't fall

I won't break at all (break it off)

I won't fall

Hello there,
at least it's over--

This time."
