Just Coffee Posted February 8, 2016 Report Share Posted February 8, 2016 (edited) This is for the callout. Original post: I focused on the arrangement first, then lyrics and vocals as I'm pretty bad at the latter two. I couldn't really do much with the source since it's just a 15 second loop but that riff is too sweet to ignore. I'm still working on it to add more elements like toms, rides, pads(maybe?) for sure but I'd like to know what you guys thought of it and also I'm taking this opportunity to invite anyone available to sing the vocals. I'm pretty bad, you'll see what I mean. Update 1: Added more elements and tweaked drums to sound more organic. Also added a pitched layer to vocals so the right notes can at least be known: singer position still open. https://soundcloud.com/justcoffee/wip-dd2-no-violence Update 2: (2/11) No vocals for arrangement critiquing purposes https://soundcloud.com/justcoffee/dd2-no-violence-no-vox Update 2: (2/14) Newest version Final arrangement (unless someone wants to provide better vocals) https://soundcloud.com/justcoffee/double-dragon-2-undersea-base-remix-no-violence Lyrics: My mind it longs for paradise Not long ago, I realise I must have no one that I'm sorry for my actions in life My anger loves my enemies And anger leads to destruction (their life in my hands) But I know I can prevent it for the peace of my mind (So I say) No violence can rule me No violence I swear No violence, control my life But violence, it finds me And violent, I can be Like fire, it burns up my life And my right to say no to a fight I understand your frustration (your love has been taken) You fight for love and you'll go (and I'll help you I know) By birth and blood we are brothers my strength is yours But words are equal in power (and can also be stronger) By force you take down their numbers (my words are a loss) Must violence be the answer My mind bears a cross (But I say) No violence can rule me No violence I swear No violence, control my life But violence, it finds me And violent, I can be Like fire, it burns up my life And my right to say no to a fight (But I say) No violence No violence No violence, control my life (But I say) No violence No violence Like fire, it burns up my life And my right to say no to a fight Source: Feel free to PM me or Skype me if you're interested in doing vocals. I would really love to submit this with better singing in time for the deadline.
