  1. Just Let It Go

    OK I've been messing around with the intro on this tune. They're each only 26 seconds long so if you have a little time, please let me know which one you like better. Thanks - Randy If you don't want to post could you possibly just like one of the two on SC. That would suffice. Thanks again. https://soundcloud.com/just-1l/jlig_1 https://soundcloud.com/just-1l/jlig_2 Just Let It Go Randy Drilingas Just 1L ©2017 What a strange way To start the morning. A little bit of salt Laden tears for those in mourning. Find a space and keep what’s real Right next to you. When you can no longer take it all. The savior in the mirror looks kind of like A beat up drum. Let it go. Just let it go. When the brain drain Becomes less warming. Attention spans gone. Trick the pain With something alarming. It’s a damn shame This I know. Go back a space and lose one turn. Then watch and wait to find a cure for all. With hated breath. Let it go. Just let it go. Something doesn’t feel the same. Bearing the weight of others pain. 24/7 every day. Peace of mind’s been led astray

  3. Watershed

    Damn. Just realized I clipped a few seconds off the beginning. Since I'm working on it, I'll leave it for now. I finally got around to redoing this 2011 song. I've got some ideas on what I might do with it but wanted a few opinions first. Lyrically, I was glad to find it out it is still as relevant today as it was when I wrote it. There are a couple lines I'm so-so with so if they get pointed out, I'll probably change them. Probably will regardless, I went with the lines that sounded better, not necessarily the one's that would work the absolute best. It may or may not matter. Overall I'm pleased with it, but also think maybe the third time may be the charm. Chow. Watershed Just 1L, Randy Drilingas 2011 I fear we'll never get another try. Gone are the days, we could do as we like. Seems like everything we do Hurts another side. Can't seem to find a plot of common ground. Sides are too far apart. Lands too unsound. Sit back and join the fight that's going 'round. And that's no damn good. (2x) We keep pointing our fingers At the other side. Never once do we ask ourselves How it might affect the others plight. It's just "Mine, it's all mine. Stay away from my side or I'll desecrate your freedoms tonight." I love it when we're told "Comply!" Or else we're wrong. Sarcasm aside, many freedoms have gone. Shit like that makes me think We'll never get along. So we keep living making livings Trying to find our way. We get used to the change. Does no good to complain. Often glancing back at What we call the "good old days." And that's no damn good. (2x) We used to think that the Watershed Would give us life. It did that. It did more. It also taught us we all know how to fight. My gains what you despise. The watershed turns to bloodshed in the blink of an eye. Used to think that the Watershed Would give us life. It did that. It did more. It also taught us we all know how to fight. Their gains what you despise. The watershed turns to bloodshed in the blink of an eye. And when somebody pulls their gun. Everybody's on the run. The watershed turns to bloodshed in the blink of an eye. And so on and so forth ,,, yadda yadda yadda, and the songs over.
  4. Burning Seed

    Okay, here's my first song post. I'm attaching an MP3 below. I guess I should get a Soundcloud link. Anyway, this song needs something. Maybe a guitar, keys. Or maybe not. It kind of goes with my vision but still feels like it's not quite right. My vocals could be better. Maybe give it a more punk feel.Tell me what you guys think. Updated: Soundcloud link: Burning Seed I got what you need, I'm a burning seed I can give you such a blast, I can make it last. You can run with me, you'll be safe with me I can take you to the end where we can start again. It comes from way down deep, the fire in my keep the pulse of my heart hammers out the beat It drives me to the edge, propels my dreams, I take the sacred box and kiss open the seams. I got what you need, I'm a burning seed. I will fire up your brain and light your soul aflame. I'll destroy your silly thoughts, make you really feel; I'll give you what you want, a real sweet deal.
  5. Bits and Pieces

    This is a new song I started about a month ago, and finished recording today. Any and all comments are welcome. Bits and Pieces Bits and Pieces Did your condition last longer? Than you had time to spare. Did your minute last an hour? Were your senses unprepared? Bits and Pieces going forward You don't remember being whole Now your virtue's gone forever And you're stuck in this hole Fly a little higher To rise above the flames Try a little harder To go against the grain Did you look into the mirror? (or) Were you forced to look away? Is your shadow edging closer? Than the price you meant to pay Fly a little higher To rise above the flames Try a little harder To go against the grain Paint yourself into a corner Use a darker shade of gray Feel the brushstrokes getting harder To cover black marks that you create Acquiescent to your reason Faith had no place at all Did you trade innocence for silver? While bits and pieces fell apart Fly a little higher To rise above the flames Try a little harder To go against the grain Cry a little louder And try to purge the pain Fly a little higher To rise above the flames...

  7. Granite Walls

    I recorded this over the weekend. It's the last song I can do for a couple weeks because I have to pack up to move. I will redo the chorus with harmonies after I move; this is a rough mix. Any and all comments welcome. (Tear Down These) Granite Walls TC Perkins V1 Sneaking down the corridor, Light steps sound like thunder Stand before your granite door, Like a beggar at the altar I know you’re in there, Like a thousand times before Lurking in the darkest corner, Afraid to face the coming storm INSTR BRIDGE V2 Ear down the corridor, Hear the sound of screaming silence Voices that I’d known before, Disappear in tranquil violence Feed the monster, kill the light Justify some dark desire Remolding truth to feed the lie C1 Tear down these granite walls Leave no stone upon another Tear down these walls and climb outside Stand upon the sea of glass Cast your crown upon the altar Tear down the walls and say goodbye Leave the shadows far behind Breath the truth, exhale the madness Tear down these walls and face The Light V3 Symbols in the corridor Lambent words disguised as wisdom But we've seen it all before Keep you safe if you sell your freedom Feed the fever, Starve the cure Justify some dark desire Remolding truth to feed the lie C2 OUTRO INSTR (verse)
  8. Down We Go

    Testing out my father-in-laws GoPro camera. It fell off towards the end so I had to improvise. One of my more recent songs. I had added some guitar fills but it just felt to "not needed". Not sure if it needed them or not. DOWN WE GO Randy Drilingas - Just1L ©2014 I get so tired of shit these days I feel like getting lost Bombarded with so many tragedies. I wanna turn 'em all away The future's come to save me Grab a phone But it only seems to drain me Here we go Where're we going? Where're we going? I just don't know Where're we going? Where're we going? I just don't know Drove myself to work today Thinking I had it all Then I lost my job to the “new” way What a kick in the balls The future's come to rape me and send me home Once it automate's me Down we go Where're we going? Where're we going? I just don't know Where're we going? Where're we going? I just don't know
  9. Hello everyone, just wanted to share a song that I wrote few years back. Recently I just finished composing and recording everything in the song. Any feedback would be appreciated. Morning Rain (New Beginning) Music and lyrics by Jon C. Am I the only one who enjoys the morning rain? The great big sky that helps to ease the pain Dreams you have, the life you've got They ain't gonna be the same I can't help asking myself Where's my soul right now? Am I the only one who hides behind my memories? I replay all the pieces just to escape the reality Days go by and I realize It's not about the destiny but a beautiful journey Say goodbye to the dark nights I am gonna get through it one more time Falling down, from thousand miles to the ground Let the rain turn into rivers Flow away yesterday Moving on... I gotta leave it all behind Gotta rediscover my soul This is my new beginning with the morning rain Am I the only one who trapped inside my fantasies? What it seems don't always match with what it means Days go by and I realize It's not about the things you see but the choices you're making Time to stop asking myself where I'm going right now Falling down, from thousand miles to the ground Let the rain turn into rivers Flow away yesterday Moving on... I gotta leave it all behind Gotta rediscover my soul I'm gonna find a new beginning in this morning rain
  10. I'm doing a project by myself. I simply need to find someone with the right voice for the music. This won't really be a band. I don't know about doing performances or anything like that. I just simply want to put some music out there that the singer and i can be proud of and satisfied with. As far as the vocals and lyrics go, we can work on that together. There's a certain theme that i wanted for the lyrics that i'll explain if you're interested. If you're into underground alternative rock/hardcore, this might be up your alley. There're a few songs that i want to put out. I'm thinking of doing a small album or something. So, just send me samples of your singing if you think this is something that you want to do. If you'd like to include your age, that would be good. I'm 24 Here's the first track so far which is still a little rough. It's also still unmastered right now. I'll take care of that when the vocals are recorded. I also added a little clarification via comments throughout the track. http://soundcloud.com/cresshen/please-do-not-comment-on-this Just send a private message. I'd rather not talk here. Thanks, Andre

  13. Stranded

    Here's a rock-n-roll duet called Stranded. The recording is still being tweaked, but we're pretty happy with the song itself, and would love to get some feedback. http://soundcloud.com/ofcoursenot/stranded This is my lucky day Take me far away If you're playing, I'll go first This is my lucky day (For sure) Nothing's gone my way But I've seen things go worse Could you stay awake just a little longer? Feels like I'm drifting (Don't you go drifting) I'll rest for just a while Don't you disappear, don't you leave me here Well, I feel closer every mile We're in the same boat now I'm as happy as I'll ever be To live inside a tragedy The same boat now And as long as this thing's sinking... I'm keeping you with me!, I'm drenched from head to toe right now Freezing from the inside out It's ironic, but the rain comes down The one time I don't need it I need, I need, I NEED to know... How can I eat this slice alone? Let it be, let it be Your luck just seems to Kum And Go We're in the same boat now I'm as happy as I'll ever be To live inside a tragedy The same boat now And as long as this thing's sinking... I'm keeping you with me!, Tell me, when's the last time you weren't singing AT THE TOP OF YOUR LUNGS? Fortune's decided...I'm stranded and I LIKE IT. We're in the same boat now I'm as happy as I'll ever be To live inside a tragedy The same boat now And as long as this thing's sinking... Take my hand, I'm sinking! Let it be! This is my lucky day! This is my turning page! Don't leave me AAA'd! 'Cause it's my lucky day!
