about

Written during FAWM 2016.

I picked a BPM of 162 out of a hat. I'm so used to using round numbers, I wanted to try something different.

I always start with the guitar riff, and this time, it took a few tries to get it right (10 actually, which is a lot for me). Once I added the bass, I was hooked.
Then I added the synths and I felt like I was in the band Killing Joke.
I immediately wrote lyrics and did the vocals.
I felt like I had just hit my pinnacle. It was a great place to start off February.

This song really set the tone for the rest of the songs on this album, production-wise, and lyrically as well.

lyrics

(c) 2016 Savage Vibes

Announcing the massacre of the day
Extermination proceeding in silence
Through this wretchedness
And this decay

We scoff at the violence
My inheritance becomes the bitter cold
An assault on the wicked
This irretrievable goal

I am the dawn that is rising
Adorned with empires
I am the greed in truths light
Ugly treasures that unfold

Somebody is hoping again
Somebody someday
Something is bleeding again
Giving up the living
giving up today
The darkness is winning again
giving up the freedom today

I am the dawn that is rising
Adorned with empires
I am the greed in truths light
Ugly treasures that unfold
Prepare for my arrival
Prepare for my return
I am the dawn that is rising
Ugly treasures that unfold

Fear the falling mind
fear my return

Somebody Somewhere
is announcing the violence
Extermination proceeding
through this Decay!

I am the dawn that is rising
Adorned with empires
I am the greed in truths light
Ugly treasures that unfold
Prepare for my arrival
Prepare for my return
I am the dawn that is rising
Ugly treasures that unfold

Somebody somewhere
is inheriting the bitter cold
