Creative Brief

We've about completed the music.  Warm up those vocal chops and get funky and creative!  Lyrics are below.

The song is in C#

I'm playing guitar in DADGAD tuning dropped 3 semitones.

105 bpm

Have fun, anything goes.

Learn to Shine

He s got no notion of what it means to be alive
Faith and devotion,  have got him by the fly
Oh how my time has, wasted away
I ve got no clue of how to straighten this life of mine
So we add to the ranks of the modern depleted
And that smell is the rank of the spiritually dead

Can I learn to Shine, Learn to Shine
Can I learn to shine, learn to shine
I m a bit afraid now,  just a bit afraid now and I am on the line
Can I learn to shine,  learn to shine.


Monday his one day, his only chance to be a live
Wednesday is friends day,  his only friend,  prescribes pills for his last day of being alive.
Thursday his rank of depression is transient and holding at bay.
Because he is me, and I’ve got no clue how to ween,

from this sanctified moonshine.
So we add to the ranks of the modern depleted
and that smell is the rank of the spiritually dead

Can I learn to Shine, Learn to Shine
Can I learn to shine, learn to shine
I m a bit afraid now,  just a bit afraid now and I am on the line
Can I learn to shine,  learn to shine.

Thirty years later, he finds himself, down on his knees

His flickering faith scurries off with his hypocrite needs.

Raising his fists to the heavens he finally finishes prayer

Left on the floor with the notion,

that all of his life was a tease

 

Learn to please
