about

this song is about a few girls in my life that either pooped on me or i pooped on. not literally, but metaphorically. i am sorry to each of them for writing this cringy song about them but music is an outlet for me and i actually like this song quite a bit.

this was the first song i wrote/recorded in The Great Ass-Getting-Up-Off-Of of december 2018. i tried to get off my ass in early october and i recorded this and it was great but i accidentally closed ableton without saving the project. so i lost all motivation AGAIN for a couple months. yes, this song is the song that delayed the album 3 whole months. whoops

the acoustic guitar was recorded by having a REALLY HOT SM58 5 feet away from me panned to the left (or right? i cant remember) channel and then the acoustic plugged in direct to the focusrite in the right (i think?) channel. it's a pretty cool effect. the vocal effect is caused by me duplicating the vocal track, pitching it up an octave, and bitcrushing it a bunch. i think it's pretty cool.

lyrics

city girl you ruined my mind
i wish i was told it was a waste of time
city girl you ruined my head
it was a long while i wished i was dead

really girl its the same as before
and im sure you'd do it again
what can i do
where can i go
how can i sleep
how can i dream

hippie girl its truly a shame
for you i think i take the blame
sadly girl it would've been nice
i still think about it even these nights

really girl im sorry for it all
but maybe girl its not all my fault
what can i do
where can i go
how can i sleep
how can i dream

sorry girl but its just how it is
there must be more to life than this

city girl you ruined my mind
really girl you wasted my time
hippie girl its quite a sad sight
all the world would tell me im right
what can i do
where can i go
how can i sleep
how can i dream
