  1. Success? (2020)

A completed version of a song I'd originally sketched out in a hurry for The Motion Pictures back in 2008.

Returning to it in 2020, I was shooting for a slow-burn tension on the front, building to a gigantic wall of guitar exploding in the second half.

Did I succeed?

Lyrics

Gotta wash away the tears now
Gotta wash away the pain
Gotta wash away the tears now
Gotta wash away the pain - today

Gotta wash the tears with the rain now
Gotta wash the tears with the rain
Gotta wash the tears with the rain now
Gotta wash the tears with the rain - for a day (at least)

I wish you success (x4)

I wanna see you smile

Try and cut some hope with the pain now
Try and cut some hope with the pain
Enlighten up or go down the drain now
Enlighten up or go down the drain - I pray

I wanna see you smile

It’s gonna be alright
It’s gonna be uptight
For just a little while
Are we headed for a breakup?
Maybe it’s just a breakdown?
Either way, I wanna see you smile

I wish you success (x8)

I wanna see you smile
