Plucking the String

Date: April 8, 2005
Genre: more ranting!
Alternate Title: "The Pope is Dead, Long Live the Pope!"


       
To start off, I downloaded a lot of free MIDI drum loops from the Groove Monkee website.  After screwing around for some time, I came up with a mixture of drums that I liked... and it all snowballed from there.
        I had no clear intentions when I started off, in other words.  The guitar parts worked, came together... and I just kinda went free with the lyrics in the moment, so.  Understandably, I was somewhat reminded of the Pope recently dying and all that.  Pleasant thoughts, right?  I suppose my thoughts are pretty clear now... as if they weren't before...


Lyrics
Don't want your testament to god
Don't want your needles and your nods
Don't want your pathetic arrogance
Don't want your blindness to elegance

I
Will not
Be
Forgiven

And I
Will not
Be
Controlled

I
Will not
Be
Forgiven

And I
Will not
Be
Controlled

Knock on the door to the world
No one will let you in

You're gonna need a chainsaw
You're gonna need an ax
And you're gonna need a change of clothes or two

And don't forget that giant fucking cross
You're gonna need a scapegoat while you're there

Make sure the nails are sharp
They're gonna have go right on through
Make sure everyone's there to watch

I
I will not
Be
Forgiven

And I
Will not
Be
Controlled

I
I will not
Be
Forgiven

And I sure as hell
Won't
Be
Controlled

I will not
Be
Forgiven

And I'm never
Gonna fucking
Be
Controlled
