15 I Won’t Remember

Fires of Bangkok - 15 I Won't Remember

15 I-wont-rememberOnce I played with a bad guitar cord. It made the guitar have a strong high end sound. After I replaced the cord the sound became warm again and I was bummed because of this. On this track I was trying to get that sound again. In the next few days I think I will try to write a few songs that feature this sound.

Instrumentation:
Guitars, Vox: Fires of Bangkok

Lyrics:
Turn off the bad dreams,
I don’t remember, I won’t remember them.
Turn off the bad dreams,
I won’t remember, I won’t remember them.

Forget all the bee stings,
I don’t remember, I won’t remember them.
Turn off the bee stings,
I don’t remember, I won’t remember them.

This is my body this is my soul.
This is my body this is my soul.

Forget all the bad things,
I don’t remember, I won’t remember them.

11 The Mess

Fires of Bangkok - 11 The Mess

11 The-MessWanted to make a really messy song that could hardly be understood but still have a leg in pop…

Instrumentation:
Drum Programming, Maracas, Bass, Guitars, Vox: Fires of Bangkok

Lyrics:
What’s the commotion, doesn’t make sense.
Why all the vultures, making a mess.
What will you do with your bullet defense?
Taking something when nothing is left.

How do we start making a fence?
What do we do with our bullet defense?
It’s no good, when nobody’s left.
Devil know when we do it to death.

What is devotion, does anybody care?
What is so gripping about despair?
Well that’s easy nobody cares.
Everyone’s blinking they’re all too scared.

07 I’m Alive

Fires of Bangkok - 07 I'm Alive

07 Im AliveI wanted to do a song that was embarrassing for me forcing me to make a fun song rather than being so serious. I wanted to add one of those Jackson 5 style speaking parts in it to accomplish this… So Tim and I took a few shots to loosen up and allow the inhibitions to go away then we started recording. Its excruciatingly embarrassing to me but after letting a few friends hear it they convinced me to get over it.

Instrumentation:
Drum Programming, Bass: Tim Delaney
Drums, Guitar, Vox: Fires of Bangkok

Lyrics:
First there was darkness, then there was light.
I’m sending you visions tonight, and all the girls with the Cadillac eyes.
This town’s gonna crucify me, but I’m alive, and I will survive,
In the spirit.

(talkin’ crap)

I know you’re a sinner, I know I’m alive.
I’m # 7, but you are space # 9.
I will survive,
In the spirit.

(talkin’ crap)

I will survive, in the spirit.

Fires of Bangkok - 06 Say

06 SayAnother shot at a pop song with a raspberry beret beat.  Reminds me of middle school for some reason.

Instrumentation:
Drum Programming: Fires of Bangkok
Guitar, Bass, Vox, Maracas: Fires of Bangkok

Lyrics:
Well they say anything goes,
and we know this.

And they say anything goes,
and we know this.

And its alright there’s no need to fight,
And it won’t, and it won’t stop tonight.

And if its not wrong then why is it so dangerous,
dangerous for you,
and me.

Don’t be discouraged,
don’t be discouraged,

What we got to do is, survive.

Instrumentation:
Guitar: Fires of Bangkok
Vox: Fires of Bangkok

Lyrics:
There’s a bird,
outside my window,
when it rains,
her friends don’t answer…

There’s a bird,
outside my window,
when it rains,
her friends don’t answer…

When the lightnin’ flash,
and the thunder clap,
no matter how her heart reacts,
she’s still in my window…

 

 

03 So Far

Fires of Bangkok - 03 So Far

03 So FarThis is a shot at writing a song in a genre that I really love.

Instrumentation:
Drum Programming: Fires of Bangkok
Bass, Guitar, Vox: Fires of Bangkok

Lyrics:
Not today, maybe tomorrow…
I don’t know why, Its the least I could do.
Taking our time, but don’t take it for granted…
I don’t know, I don’t know what else we could do.

And I know its right, and it feels so right…
But I won’t follow you so far from home.

Today the pain, is meant to be borrowed…
At least they were lies, and now that they’re gone.
We’re back to our senses, and nothing is wrong…
Light as a feather, what could be wrong.

And I know its right, and it feels so right…
But I won’t follow you so far from home.

A knife in the side, a break in my spirit…
Something dies, and we never look back.
Waiting for something, something we lack…
Like we never knew things could be so bad.

And I know its right, and it feels so right…
But I won’t follow you so far from home.

01 Something Without Wings

Fires of Bangkok - 01 Something Without Wings

01 Something_Without_WingsInstrumentation:
Vox: Fires of Bangkok
Guitar: Fires of Bangkok - Birmingham Alabama Yamaha Acoustic with high E to B string substitution…

Lyrics:
We watch our trinkets,
they wash upon the shore…

And we dream of the day,
I won’t see the law…

The law has guns,
guns kill people everyday…

Darkness carries me,
darkness scares me…

We watch our feelings,
walk across the floor…

And we weep for them all,
as they head down the hall…

They all have wings,
they fly by people everyday…

Something carries me,
something without wings…

28 what’s left stands

Eric Balint -28 what's left stands

whaslefti initially was going to have a lot more layers going on in this song, but i really like the sound of it stripped down like this…i guess because it allows the drum part to come through more…
…also, it’s 11:55

the idea for the lyrics sprang from watching people in a restaurant from outside.

instruments:
guitar: zanny’s generic classical
bass: beat ass harmony
drums
vocals x’s 3
hand claps

lyrics:
i watched you through the glass
but it should have been a screen
you all looked just like
actors in a movie scene
laughing it up
dressed to the nines
young and fit
raising your cup
saying your lines
with charm and wit
wide eyed and blue and silver toned
the crowd holds it’s breath
and shivers to the bone
for what you might say next
from outside
the motion’s slow
the meaning’s deep
but i don’t
really know
i’m not in this scene
there is no such thing
there’s no fire
or hero’s cape
there’s no last minute escape
when broken down
and barely there
what’s left stands
true and bare
