Plucking the String

This damn song took way, way too long to come into being.  But that's pretty much my own fault, so hey.  The lyrics are from about six years ago(!), and I did have the guitar part for a couple of months... but of course I got it into my head that I should try to use the computer as much as possible in the production.  No, I don't know why.  I'm obviously a bit of a masochist, what can I say.
        And then I had it!!!  And then the effects pedal broke.  So that one pushed me back until finally I sat the hell down in front of the computer, got the intro down, recorded the rest, then the vocals, got the outtro, and boom.  Here ya go.  Yeah, the voice needs work, but I kind of like the raw, tired quality.  So... neener, ye naysayers.


Lyrics
Shut the door, you're in control
Close your eyes, you're on a roll
The time is right, now take your stand
Precious souls are in demand

The time is right
Terror stalks the night
Take your wings
Destroy your precious things

Don't try to run
You can't get away
Mental health is running stray

Now sit right back
And give on in
Find your vengeful self again

The time is right
Terror stalks the night
Take your wings
Destroy your precious things
