Plucking the String

Date: December 8, 2006
Genre: definitely surreal


        Yeah, I know what this seems to be about... but it isn't.  No, really.  ...Okay, maybe it is.  A little.  Sssshh.
       Just another experiment that turned out a lot weirder/freakier/"wtf"-ier than I'd intended.  Luckily I really enjoy that.  And then to further the oddness, I played around with the music a bit more and pitch-shifted my voice for the "male" version.  ...I like them both.


Lyrics
If you speak
Speak to me
If you talk
Let me hear

If you walk
Don't walk away
If you go
Don't stay away

What is it like
In the dark
What is it like
In eternal light

What's it like
In the dark
When you're walking away

If you speak
Then speak up
If you talk
Talk to me

What's it like
In the dark
When you're walking away

What's it like
In the dark
What's it like
On its coldest days

Where are you
Gonna go
When it's all over

Speak
Speak to me
If you talk
Make it awful things

Tell me everything
Where you've been
What you've done

What's it like
In the dark
What's it like
In the coldest days

What's it like
In the dark
Is your blood the same

If you speak
Speak out loud
If you talk
Then talk to me

What's it like
In the dark
What's it like

What's it like
In the cold
What's it like
Making the darkest days

What's it like
In the dark
As you're walking away

Would you walk
Do you walk
Would you stand
Would you stay

Don't go further
Don't go further
Than I can reach

What's it like
In the dark
What's it like
On the coldest days

What's it like
In the dark
As you're walking away

When you're walking away
Walking away

What's it like
In the dark
What's it like
On the coldest days

Don't be afraid
You can tell me
Don't be afraid
Of all detail
