Backwards Song About a School



This is the first backwards version of a song from a new album I've started working on. It's an album about a fucked up school.

Crows Know Everything



CR0WSKN0
This week's song is called "Crows Know Everything." It's a song about how crows actually know everything in the universe, and us humans are all dumb, in comparison. The narrator of the song is all sad about missing people who are dead; so, she's trying to get the crows to tell her stuff about the afterlife.

Weird Crows Know
Here's last week's song if you turn it around backwards.

The lyrics are:
Crows know everything, that's why they're singing, cuz they know, cuz they know everything.

I asked the crows what happens after we are dead.
They said you people are dumb and it is over your heads

Crows know everything, that's why they're singing.
Crows know everything, that's why they're singing, cuz they know, cuz they know everything.

I said but I miss some people who are gone
They said you'll see them soon enough when your life is done

Crows know everything, that's why they're singing.

The crows that I saw they told me that they are from something called the void
It is something you cannot understand because you are a dumb humanoid
I wondered why would they tell me about this thing in the first place
They said it's because they like to fuck around with members of the human race

Crows know everything, that's why they're singing, cuz they know, cuz they know everything.
Crows know everything, that's why they're singing.
Crows know everything, that's why they're singing, cuz they know, cuz they know everything.

One Zwark




Here's another backwards-song with a nice, backwards crow in it. It and the forward version I'll be posting next week are less on the dark side than what I've been posting lately. It's more jolly. It's about crows.

I'm posting it a couple days early cuz I dunno how much time and where-with-all I'll have what with that Thanksgiving holiday coming up and all the travel involved.

The Rose In Black



"The Rose in Black" is about the depressingness of now. See, this song came to me in a dream, the night after a day of feeling particularly bummed out. It's, essentially, a song about how depressing it is to live in this world, and how it kills your soul.

I can tell that some of the lyrics are heavily influenced by Mike Shinoda. I've been listening to his album, Post Traumatic a lot.

This is last week's song if you turn it around backwards.

Here're the lyrics:

I can't be here anymore / there's no place for me
This is not my world / it's not where I want to be

I used to dream the rose in black; it's coming back, it's coming back

Eternal burning eyes / look so far away
In the burnt sunrise / It is where I guess I'll stay
In the dawning of the day / that never ends
The clouds are gray / and you can't go home again

I used to dream the rose in black; it's coming back, it's coming back

John Trudell, he said it well, when he said this world is fucked
It eats your soul and it spits it out / and it's trampled in the muck
I said it long time ago / singing in my purple cave
What do you do when you have no clue / and there's no soul left to save

I can't be here anymore / there's no place for me
This is not my world / it's not where I want to be

I used to dream the rose in black; it's coming back, it's coming back

Cabnimuk and I'm in Hell Again


CABNIMUK
This here backwards song sounds to me like the song that'd be played during the closing credits of a movie.


HELLAGAG
I'm including a bonus track. See, I had this song, where the conventional-singing-part sounded like shit, but I liked the rapping part. I got all sad, thinking about how I was gonna just throw this song away, when I liked the rap so well. So I re-did parts of the conventional-singing-part, and now I like it better.

I dunno why I'm breaking my rule, where I always post a backwards version before the forwards version. I think it's cuz I'm lazy. So I included it as a bonus track instead of backwardsing it.

The lyrics are:

Worse than anything's ever been: I'm in Hell again

I got stuck inside the middle of the mess
Making dumb decision that never were the best
Stupid dumb eternity in my living room
Making a quaternity in the shape of doom

Eternal damned donut is what I have become
Got a hole that is inside me in a universe that's dumb
I'm a torus in a forest of striking demon death
When it's later, I'll kill masturbators
And I'm darker than Darth Vader
Turnining loose the alligators
In the land of Satan Seders*
And official regulators**

I am stupid and I'm stuck under the bottom of my thumb
Getting drunk on beer and whiskey, but I never drink rum
When you ask me what time it is, I say it is not now
I'm a devil getting drunk off of the sweat of its own brow

I wish I were a kitty cat cuz they are really cute
But I'm spending all my time inside a demon suit
Evil, bad, and stupid is what I have become
Going round blind corners in a universe that's dumb

*Okay, yeah, what's a Satan Seder? It's a concept related to last week's "devil's pope" reference. See, a Jewish boyfriend of mine told me Satanism is actually an offshoot of Christianity. Like, he basically said Satanism is the Satanic version of what Christianity would be if it was Satanic.A Satan Seder is a meal made by a Jewish person who became converted to Satanism, but still wanted to prepare a holiday meal. The Satanic version of a holiday meal. See, this Jewish person practices the Jewish version of Satanism, much like my ex-boyfriend stated that Satanism, in general, is the Satanic version of Christianity (or the Christian version of Satanism? I'm not sure.)

**I realized, after the fact, that the rap would be better with one more line. So, I broke my rule of doing a rap in one take and punched that in. Yesiree.

Post-script: I remixed the Hell Again song, but I'm not sure what mix is better.

And He Chews You

CHEW2MIX
This is a song I got from a dream. This older African American gentleman was singing it in a bluesy fashion. It's a song about getting chewed on by the devil.

Weird and he chews you
This is last week's song if you turn it around backwards...although I had to change the timing of the vocals and stuff relative to the rhythm because it was a teeny tiny bit out of sync.

The lyrics are:

And he chews you.
Can this be a good thing? To hear the devil sing?
It's a song that makes you pray that he is here to stay.
And he chews you.
In a little bit, you'll think about how much closer you are to a rout
smoking in the devil's den can get you away from them

Getting inside the bad things are hard and it makes you sad
An envelope filled with poop delivered to your front stoop
Yesterday was good and dead. Stupid and dumb delivered to your bed
You cannot get out of your head. Was the devil being fed?

Maybe it is what you hope, to feed the devil's pope
And tell the rest of them, "nope"
Climb to Heaven on your rope.

Ooyswhich



OOYSWICH
Whoops, I accidentally drew the illustration for next week's song. My sense of time is all fucked up cuz I thought it was next week. This is one of those backwards songs that's got a different mood to it than the frontwards version. This one is all spacey and dreamy sounding.

Yay, I finally got to say livedd. Y'know, that's what "devil" sounds like backwards. This song also has the word "poop" in it, because "poop" is in the frontwards version, and poop is the same both ways. Yay, me.

Sad Demon-Man Song



SAODEM0N
This is a song about a man, at the end of his life, who is sad because the most-importantest-people-to-him are all dead. And he's sitting there, looking back at all his regrets. See, an element of my unconscious came to me and told me he'd like me to record a song from his point of view. I did.

Here's last week's song if you turn it around backwards.

Here are the lyrics:
   
I stole things from my mother / I took a feathered fan
The people said, “oh brother / why can’t you be a man?”
I took it cuz I miss/ the people who it’s from
I know the world got pissed/ and they think that I am dumb
I’m a worthless liar / and I have red hair
Disappear into the mire / in a life that isn’t fair
I’m a demon who is screaming / sowing seeds of yesterday
Need a password to go backwards/ so you’ll never go away

Why did they die I am a mess
Stupid dumb demon in a dress
Why did they have to go away
I cannot stand my life today

I’m a spider that’s caught in the web that it spun
I’m sitting in the dark cuz I’m scared of the sun
Down in the dirt I cry a lot
But it don’t hurt if I smoke some pot

The rap/weird poetry part at the end is the same as the first one, except that "life that isn't fair" is replaced with "world that isn't fair."

Shit, I'm realizing I probably should have drawn the illustration of the guy with him wearing a dress, to go with the song lyrics. Oh, well.

Turd In It



TURDINIT
This is another one of those backwards-songs. I called it "Turd In It" because the word "turd" presents itself in the song. The picture of the demon-man will make more sense when I post the forwards-version next week.

And here's a link to the comic book I just finished writing. Woohoo!
The Adventures of Jesus and Chief Running Dog: Sunday Depresso, Part 1

Here's what the cover looks like:

It's a book about 2 depressed guys, and you only see them on Sundays, being depressed about having to go to work the next day. 

Daisy Charles is my nom de plume; I named myself after my cats, Charlie and Daisy.
Charlie and Daisy want you to buy this book.

Song About a Bug Getting Stoned



This is the next song in the continuing series of songs sung/rapped from the point of view of my shadow (see entry from September 20 for an explanation of what I'm talking about). This song is about the part of my shadow complex that's an annoying, buzzing insect. See, in the song, someone is smoking weed, and a bug flies into the smoke and gets stoned. That's what the song is about. It's about a bug that accidentally smokes pot.

Note: when I use the term, "rap," I'm usin' it loosely. I'm not sure if those spoken-word parts of the songs are actual rap, or if they're just weird poetry.

Oh, yeah, and in case you're wondering why the same comic strip characters keep on appearing in the song illustrations, those are the characters in my graphic novels.

 Here's last week's song if you turn it around backwards. The rhythm of the singing part is kinda different from the regular version.

Here are the lyrics:

You flew right into the smoke! Oh, shit, you just took a toke!
You are a bug who is stoned. And you can never go home.
You flew right into the weed. Now in your brain, there's a seed.
Mental direction you drift. It caused a big, mighty rift.

I am just a stupid, buzzing bug, blind as a bat, shitting all over the rug
And I'm stupid and careless, and no one gives a fuck,
When I'm burned down to ashes, swimming seas of bad luck
No one remembers that time of year, when mosquitoes painted rainbows inside their ears
In the days, when their heads were in the clouds
Grinding over timeless, purple shrouds.

Backwards Song About A Bug



This is the backwards version of a song about a bug. You'll get to hear the forwards version next week. The word-spewing nature of this song sounds demonic almost. Or I might be wrong about that.

Wearing My Reflection



I finished reading a book called Owning Your Own Shadow by Robert Johnson (1991, HarperCollins). It's a book about how there's this Jungian concept called The Shadow, which everyone has. The shadow is comprised of the parts of oneself that one has disowned. Some of it might be evil and/or mean, but there's also a lot of good stuff that people tend to end up disowning about themselves. 

Well, anyway, after reading that book, I decided to let my shadow write some songs and stuff. This is the first of the songs that I let my shadow write. It's written by the part of my shadow that's a naughty cat that pees all over the house.

(It's not necessarily the one in the picture. It's a good picture cuz it's a reflecto-kitty picture, all reflecty, like the song).

Here's last week's song if you turn it around backwards.

And here are the lyrics:

I'm wearing my reflection
How did this happen to me?

It is something similar to me
But it makes me inside out, you see

Maybe I am just a stupid dream
Middle aged and running out of steam

I am gonna pee all over the place and I am a reflection of your face
And I am a reflection of the sun and I am gonna pee all over everyone
Do not try to stop me, nosiree
You cannot stop reflecting the naughty tree
You cannot stop the person who has come as a cat
You think I am stupid but I'm only fat
