So lately I have been replaying the game Heavy Rain to get as many different endings as I can. And one ending, was well....Quite sad and disturbing. After I saw it I had some lyrics I scribbled down, and eventually turned into this. It all went kinda quick, wrote and recorded the whole song in about 5-6 hours, But it still came out pretty cool I think.

Musically I was trying a lot of things that don't come too naturally to me, Certain chord progressions and whatnot. And the intro solo I was really trying to nail an Akira Yamaoka feel to it (Composer for Silent Hill). And I even tried something I didnt think would work well, which was screaming/harsh vocals over a relatively soft and clean section.

Let me know what you think!



And the lyrics of course:


_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

Heavy Rain
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

I cannot believe
In who I am
I cannot believe
In anything
A thickening darkness
Is all I know
Unbearable sadness
Is all I know

Lost to the waters of guilt
I suffer alone in my solitary shell
A worthless soul not worth saving
Pathetic excuse for life

I cannot stand
This heavy rain
I cannot take
This pain
I could not save
My own kin
I cannot save
Anyone!

My mind is falling apart
Beneath the weight of this heavy rain
I cannot bear my own sin
I am simply better off dead

The sound of rain permeates the air in the city
Lying still against the ground
Lies the body of a man who lost everything

I really like it! The lyrics sound kinda weird sometimes...but I love the guitar sound, really cool to hear such a different approach.

Well the female vocals are completely synthesized, So it doesn't always get every little annunciation quite right. Few more hours toying with it and it might be a bit better.
