Vlayman: “The Dark (I Taste)”

The Dark (I Taste)
c. ’14 Vlayman

All your well-earned politesse ain’t mean nothin’ to me
‘Come on now baby”, I said
“And we’ll see what there is to be”
“We’ll be the biggest and best
That’s what I see”
But you never wanted to rest and then you moved on and left me.

But you left your mark, and I taste the dark

Now alla yer wealth and taste didn’t mean nothin’ to them
“Come on now, my followers”, I said
as I tried to lead ‘em
And I lead em I did right staright into yer hands
And you took the lives of every child, woman and man

And you left your mark, and I taste the dark

Solo

Yes, you left your mark, and I taste the dark
Oh, you left your mark, and I taste the dark

Solo

Spanish is the language of lovers but you only ever whispered to me
In a guttural moan that made every thing you ever did seem
Like I could never get enough, could never wait to get laid
But I reckon I got too much and here I am still afraid

Yes, you left your mark, and I taste the dark
Oh, you left your mark, and I taste the dark

Vlayman: “Left Us”

Left Us
c. ‘ Vlayman

Four horsemen came, just dropped by to say hello/
And when they left, I was bereft/
Four horsemen came and it never was the same/ and I was sad to see you go

Into the hills you went and left us
you went and left us
And I was sad to see ya go
Into the night you went and left us
It wasn’t right you went and left us
And I was sad to see ya go

Three headed dog, he just came along
And when he left, I was bereft/
Three headed dog, Three headed dog/ and I was sad it was so wrong

Across the river you went and left us
you went and left us
And I was sad to see ya go
Into the hills you went and left us
you went and left us
And I was sad to see ya go
Into the night you went and left us
It wasn’t right you went and left us
And I was sad to see ya go

Vlayman: “My Black Dog”

My Black Dog
c. ’14 Vlayman

Ask the first dog you meet, on the street
Ask him what he done to become complete

Oh-ho

Ask the first cat what about that
Ask him what he done to become so fat

Oh-ho
My black dog, My black dog
My black dog
He’s been alone so very long

Ask the first ugly duckling who she’s been f***in’
Ask her what she’s done to become such a swan

Ask the last dog you’re about put down in town
Ask him what he done to become about to be underground

Sepak & Vlayman” “I Blow Time”

IBT
c. ’14 Sepak & Vlayman

No matter how I try to get it all, all happening right
No matter what I do, I mix up my day for your night
I see you and I blow time
I blow time
I can’t seem to stay in line

I blow time
I can’t seem to stay in line
I blow time

It ain’t a question of meter, tho’ that’s still runnin
It ain’t a question of my intent, you know that I just ain’t comin’
to hang around you know I want you for mine
I want you for mine
But I blow time all the time

I’m gonna try and be steady girl
Steady just for you
Keep my big hands on yer little ones and
Always tell ya true
And baby when it happens and I go off line
Ya know I ain’t mean it, no
when I blow time

Tick-Tock
Tick-Tock
Where’s my socks

Lemme show ya my best face, the one you can always read
Be it light or in the night, I want ya to see me
See me when you need me, I’ll always hold the line
I wanna be the one that you can always rely on

Woman of Mine
c. ’14 Rick Sepak, Vlayman

I been taking all my troubles back to you
You been tellin me sompin’ I ain’t wanna do
Don’t try and ¬† ¬†change my mind
Don’t think you can change my mind

I been taking all my troubles back to you
You been tellin, me sompin’ I ain’t wanna do
And now yer outta t-i-i-i-iime
Are we just runnin’ outta time

I been taking all my troubles back to you
You been tellin, me sompin’ I ain’t wanna do
You gone over line
You gone way past the line

So you decided to leave me.
Lemme change yer mind
Let me change yer mind
This ‘ll be, this’ll be the last time

So I dun took my trouble back to you
And you told me a buncha shit you want me to do
It would be a crime
A mother-fuckin’ crime

Sennheiser MK 4

I like this mic on vocals, a lot. Sennheiser now being owned by Neumann, I’ve read that there is some definite TLM influence on the MK 4. I don’t know about those mic’s, but this one has a very expensive-sounding low end,a flexible proximity effect, and a nice clarity to the top, with no distortion when a pop filter is used. It’s not hugely different than an AT4040, or a Shure SM27, but a nicely different color, very natural, sounds much more expensive than it costs, German and not at all Chinese.

Vlayman: “The Fear (Saw Me)” w/ link to mix yerself

The Fear
c. ’14 Vlayman

Down on Halsted I brought my money
I was only lookin’ to doya a solid honey
I brought all I ha-a-ad

They told me it was bad
They all called out to me
They said the fear saw me

I didn’t want to think about that
I didn’t know what to do about that
But there was nothin’ to be done about that

I was running scared I admit
I was running scared I had no choice in the matter
I was running scared for you, that’s a fact

I made it outta there, it’s true
I ran my ass off tryin’ to get back to you
And they followed me, you can see that’s a fact
