Won't Get Better Than This
Won't Get Better Than ThisWritten, performed and recorded by Norm "Denormalizer" Vilmer. Guitar is Schecter C-1+ w/mod - Seymour Duncan '59 humbucker in neck; JB in bridges (tone piece to test new pickups). Don't matter what you do or how you do it. Don't matter who you're with or where you are. It won't get better than this. It just won't get better than this.
DriveWritten, performed and recorded by Norm "Denormalizer" Vilmer © 2012. @1:54 - Musically stopped at a traffic light with signal on, then accelerate and drive Walk away, walk away to the street. Find the keys, unlock the door empty car, empty seat. Sat alone, sat awhile before I drive, before the drive. Engine idles, depress the brake, signal clicks. ...and then I drive. The fog and beach remind me empty feeling, empty seat. Gonna say, I'm sorry gonna head back soon gonna buy the stone gonna rent the room gonna play with fate gonna be there soon. after I drive, after the drive.
Bad KarmaHere's my stab at some lyrics. Intro: until bar 12 Verse 1 starts with do’s It's starts again another day, no change. Been here before don’t like the question not going to answer. Instrumental Bridge: 8 bars from 21-28 next verse starts with piano What's the problem so what, its what you want you think its better now but it goes on you watch it happen and don't even look away Then I think you just don’t get it how many more times will it take. Chorus: starts at bar 40 It goes on it goes on and on it's in me, it's in you when it comes around don’t let it come around around and around again -- at bar 48 Bad karma... bad, bad karma again and again and again bad karma... bad bad karma it's in you, it's in me -- at bar 56 What goes around comes around our fate, our pedigree before and again -- at bar 60 It comes around don’t want it to come around going to get back to you -- ending Bad karma... bad, bad karma what goes around, comes around (repeat for the rest of the song)
