New Release from The Silence Noise – Lost in the Storm

Lost in the Storm is inspired by the /r/songaweek theme of “Sorry.”

Lyrics:

The sorry came too late
It should have come before the bomb
It should have come before the kill
It should have come before I was gone

The sorry came too late
I could have told you before it was dead
I could have told you what’s stuck in my head
I could have told you what all of this meant

The life that we used to dream about
The fears that we used to talk about
The hope that we used to want to share
The love that used to fill the air

It all comes apart
We all come apart
Nothing is forever
Words lost in the storm

The sorry came too late
I know I could have been better
You know you should have known better
But all we had was faith

The sorry came too late
I never had the strength to give
You never had the trust within
And now it’s so far gone

It all comes apart
We all come apart
Nothing is forever
Words lost in the storm

New Release from The Silence Noise – Right Back to the Middle

From Black to White is inspired by the /r/songaweek theme of “Key Change.”

Lyrics:

I wanted to take a little time
To feel things out
I wanted to take a little time
But you wouldn’t let me

I really didn’t ask for that much
I really didn’t ask for too much
I really didn’t want that much
But I’ll take it

Why did you let it go this far?
When either side leads right back to the middle.
I knew you wouldn’t like who you are
When either end goes right back to the beginning

I really didn’t ask for that much
I really didn’t ask for too much
I really didn’t want all that much
But I’ll take it

I wanted to see
If you believe
I wanted to see if
You have seen it – can you see it?

Why did you let it go this far?
When either side leads right back to the middle.
I knew you wouldn’t like who you are
When either end goes right back to the beginning

Give me a little time
I still need a little time
Give me a little time
Have you seen him?

New Release from The Silence Noise – From Black to White

From Black to White is inspired by the /r/songaweek theme of “Color.”

Lyrics:

Hear you coming
Your feet are pounding
My ears against the floor
My head is aching
My mind is racing
I can’t take any more

The door flies open
My heart is broken
I don’t know what I see
The pain, the torture
Soon to be over
The ghost of what was me

I see your eyes
Turned black as night

I hear you move just one step away
I feel your breath just one inch away
I see your eyes
Turned black as night

My eyes grow wide, just one quick mistake
My hands to fists, just one move to make
I see your eyes
Go black to white

And I know I’m done

I know we’re done
Why do we do this to ourselves?
Who have we become?
Where are we even going?

I see you fading
I see you fading

What do we even want?
Who are we becoming?
The dark places we have gone
I don’t know if we can come back

I see you fading
I see you fading
I see you fading
Becoming something worse

New Release from The Silence Noise – To Fill The Holes

To Fill The Holes is inspired by the /r/songaweek theme of “Major.”

Lyrics:

Wander through the wasteland of my memory
The holes inside my past phase into reality
The home we knew is just an empty space in the ground
Now it’s left to me to fill the hole

Now it’s left to me to fill the hole

Withered tree we climbed still standing strong
Echoing the verses to our favorite songs
Living in the fear that something or someone’s lost
Now the present brings the past across our atmosphere

Now it’s left to me to fill the hole

I don’t even know why I still feel this
Don’t even know why I still see this
Don’t even know why I still want this
Don’t even know why I pretend…

Now it’s left to me to fill the holes

New Release from The Silence Noise – Let’s Go To War

Let’s Go To War is inspired by the /r/songaweek theme of “Minor.”

Lyrics:

Let’s go to war
I think you’d like it
It’s just the perfect thing
To feed your insanity

Lets go to war
I think you want it
Just by listening to
The way you talk to me

Heaven forbid I’m the one who wanted to love you
To actually forget the things that you did to shame you
Thankfully words aren’t bullets or I’d be dead
But years full of memories are something I won’t forget

Lets go to war
Lets tear each other apart
Lets go to hell
Lets give into the madness
Lets live in fear
With the corpse of that which we call love
Lets stay right here
Since the future requires us to grow

What’s this fight really all about?
Whats the pain that led to all your doubt?
Why do you try and fight me
When all I want is to give you peace?

What the hell is wrong with me?

Live Mix Breakdown – Factory of Hope, Mechanism, and Virus

 

Breakdown of Factory of Hope, Mechanism, and Virus.

I’ve been sick the past few weeks, which means a lack of content coming out of The Silence Noise camp.

I tried to make up for this today, spending over an hour providing some deeper insight into my track this week, Factory of Hope, as well as the previous instrumentals Mechanism and Virus.

In particular, Factory of Hope was a deep mixing process with a lot of different instruments in the mix fighting for space.  The track includes three sets of vocals, acoustic and electric guitar, double bass strings, a violin section, piano, drums, and much more.

In the other two releases, the songs based around the themes of “Analog” and “Distortion,” are shorter and were mostly generated from my phone and tablet before finishing them on the mix station.

Happy to share this breakdown with you!

New Release from The Silence Noise – Factory of Hope

Factory of Hope is inspired by the /r/songaweek theme of “Digital.”

Lyrics:

My dreams are in a machine
Downloading hope to a factory
Assemble my life from a template
Of a man to whom I don’t relate

Lost in the wave of technology
Dead to the world outside of me
Living in a cold blue gloom
I yearn for a future outside this room

I can’t breathe
I need air
I can’t see
My eyes are so tired

I can’t believe
With all this information
That I still don’t know how to live

I know so much but care so little
Always searching for the newest arrival
Mind is full of clicks and buzzes
Wishing I could ever fall asleep again
The day I waited for so long
Seems like it has come and gone
The day I waited for so long
Now what’s left to do but remember the pain?

I’ve waited for so long
I’ve waited for so long
I’ve waited for so long

Now I want to give up on this dream
Now I’m fully part of the machine

Remastered from The Silence Noise – My Feet in the Mud

A brand new remaster of My Feet in the Mud.

Why did I do this?

There was recently a deal on Izotope Ozone Elements which led me to revisit some of my previous mixes and creations throughout the Song a Week process.

Ozone Elements features a mastering assistant with an EQ, imager, and maximizer that can help add some depth to the track.

Since this track was developed earlier in my songwriting process there were many issues with the mixing and editing choices – particularly with the guitar, vocals, and drums.

Instead of just cramming it all through the mastering process, I went back through and cleaned up and distinguished many of these elements with the new skills I’ve developed over time.

Lyrics:

Have you seen the man who’s lost his dreams?
Have you found the boy who holds his wonder?
If your once upon a time seems ever further
If its twice as far as you would ever wander

So much for the man who sells his dreams…
Good luck to the man who sells his dreams…
The profit was never worth it…
But I bet you’ve made a fortune

Hey there, you there
What’d you do with the buck you made?

Blank stares, lost cares
What’d you do with the heart you drained?

Rain, rain
It’s raining thoughts
Don’t mind the fog… You’ll find your way

Rain, rain
Your search for God
Was not in vain… You’re on the way…

I gave you a gift from the bottom of my pocket
Did you see the effort it takes me to find it?
The lazier, the holier, the crop corrupts the cream
Your dark dream now I own it all it seems!

I’m taking up a residence in most expensive places
I’m planning on all the luxuries, amenities, and favors
You’ll give to me all of your energy
I’m taking up a residence in a neighborhood that I will call your soul

My heart is too afraid to show itself today
My heart is too afraid to let you see me
Trickling down, I hear the vultures
They’re coming to pick the corpse clean

Rain, rain
My feet in the mud
My God, my God… We are lost

New Release from The Silence Noise – Mechanism (Instrumental)

New Release – Mechanism for song a week theme, “Analogue.”

This is a bit different from the normal since I’ve been sick the last two weeks with bronchitis and unable to sing.

The track features all analogue instruments created in Komplete’s Retro Machines package tweaked to my liking.

The composition was primarily on my phone and through humming.

The vocal sample is from the assistant of Alexander Graham Bell as he discussed the invention of the telephone.
