new song and recording: "Prayer (Say Nothing Again)"

This new, original song is called “Prayer (Say Nothing Again)” and was written in May 2016. The recording and lyrics are given below. Tablature and composition notes will be posted as soon as I finish them.

Recording


What It's About

The song is nominally about giving God the "finger". But it actually is about a crisis of faith which I have mostly resolved. However, since this is (sort of) punk music, I needed a rude image such as the middle finger rather than a sappy metaphor to portray the crisis.

Tablature

Tablature will be posted as soon as I finish it. For now here is a snapshot of my bass notes:

Lyrics

I just want to say nothing again
I just want to say everything again
But you won't listen anyway
But you won't get it anyway
So I'll just say nothing again

I can't let her go right now
So what the fuck do I do?
Trying to find a way to leave the situation
Trying to think of every way to get her attention

'Cause I just want her to stop ignoring me
And if she's not going to talk with me
I need you to explain what's up
I need you to explain what's up

I just want to say nothing again
I just want to say everything again
But you won't listen anyway
But you won't get it anyway
So I'll just say nothing again

Maybe it's slightly obsessive
But its probably real love
And I just want to share it with her
And I just want to spend time with her

So I'll just give you the finger
And say nothing again
But I really want something new to happen
Really want you to explain it to me
Really want you to explain it to me

I just want to say everything again
I just want to say everything again
But will you listen?  I know you get it
But will you listen?  I know you get it

So I'll just give you the finger
And say nothing again
