“Tourniquets & Windmills” song and video

By , 23 March, 2010, 8 Comments

For this one I did two live takes from two different perspectives and then laid down a couple voices for the chorus and a string backing. So it’s live with some post work.

The clapping is to help me sync the audio (recorded on the pc) with the video (recorded on a Vado). Also I love clapping, regardless of how bad I am at it.

Lyrics:

Oh I never said this
my life is always ending
I built a little village
then burned it down

All along the edges
of fire and such inventions
like tourniquets and windmills
I saved the town

Hold to the body
As we swing from the stars
Hold to the body
As we swing from the stars

I’ve got a shoebox
of worn out believers
We’ve traveled so far
But we can’t seem to get here
Just like followers of a not yet born universe
Just like followers of a not yet born universe

Life in outer space
Is like laying in a coffin
An eternity of darkness
Without a sound

Only little children
dismayed and lightly wounded
can build a better rocket
and leave the ground

Did you know…I need a job?
