Plucking the String

Date: February 16, 2004
Genre: punk-ish


       
I blame this entirely on... somebody else.
        Alright, I guess it's my fault.  I took one of those stupid purity quizzes, and the results prompted me to comment, "I'm a lustful heretic!"  My Live Journal friends certainly didn't help matters, giving me encouragement and all.
        I made one very crappy sounding recording of this basic concept in May of 2003 and presented it to people, who seemed to have liked it.  This version finds it discovered by a very glorious and talented musician Jason May, who helped me to complete the guitar portion.  So I may have come up with the basics, but he perfected them.
        As for the voice... apologies in advance.  This was recorded after a week's worth of coughing, and you can definitely hear it.  My voice is not capable of tone after a big cough-week, apparently.  But that's okay, it sounds more punk this way.  I'm still proud, dammit.
        Ramones, eat your hearts out.  Uh... the living members, anyway.


Lyrics
When I die
I'm going to hell

I'm a lustful heretic
I'm a lustful heretic
I'm a lustful heretic
And I don't care

I'm a lustful heretic
I'm a lustful heretic
I'm a lustful heretic
And I don't care

I'm a lustful heretic
I'm a lustful heretic
I'm a lustful heretic
And I don't care

I'm a lustful heretic
I'm a lustful heretic
I'm a lustful heretic
And I don't care

And I want it
I want it
I want it
I want it
I need it
I need it
I need it
I need it
I love it
I love it
I love it
I love it
And I'm never gonna give it up

I'm a lustful heretic
I'm a lustful heretic
I'm a lustful heretic
And I don't care

I'm a lustful heretic
I'm a lustful heretic
I'm a lustful heretic
And I don't care

I'm a lustful heretic
I'm a lustful heretic
I'm a lustful heretic
And I don't care

I'm a lustful heretic
I'm a lustful heretic
I'm a lustful heretic
And I don't care

And I want it
I want it
I want it
I want it
I need it
I need it
I need it
I need it
I love it
I love it
I love it
I love it
And I'm never gonna give it up

So give
It
To
Me
Now
