about

This is a new thing we're trying in Vocallective. Sometimes people will send us songs with their own processed vocals. While they're not synthesized, they produce results that fall in the same ballpark, so we're accepting them from now on. This one features Elisile singing himself.

It's like instead of building from the ground up, you are reverse-engineering it, obtaining your goal by substraction rather than addition. With vocoders and other vocal processing tools, you can achieve results that you wouldn't be able to from Vocaloid/etc and that's pretty cool.

Track Name: Now That I Know
(Verse 1)
Hello.
I think we've made a really big mess of ourselves
but that's okay 'cause they'll clean it up.
And if you can't breathe, then neither could I.
Just hold your breath, kid, and you'll be fine. 

You don't need to breathe our air;
you're only the future, how could you dare
to waste that oxygen reserved for us?
We bought that right while we burned your trust.

(Chorus)
Now that I know
when they fire the starting gun,
if you just take a step back 
while the others all run,

You will have crossed the finish line
before the rest have even begun.
But then be honest with yourself, 
have you really won?

(Verse 2)
Alright.
We think you've made a really big mess of yourself,
but that's okay 'cause we'll sweep you up.
And if you don't breathe, then neither should I.
We'll drown together, kid, and nothing is fine.

You don't need to breathe our air;
we've stolen your future, how could you dare
to ask for anything back from us?
We'll fuel that fire by burning your trust. 

(Chorus)
Now that I know
when they fire the starting gun,
if you just take a step back 
while the others all run,

You will have crossed the finish line
before the rest have even begun.
But then be honest with yourself, 
have you really won?

(Bridge)
Alright runners,
get on your marks, 
get set, and
GO!

*Breakdown*

(Chorus)
Now that I know
when they fire the starting gun,
if you just take a step back 
while the others all run,

You will have crossed the finish line
before the rest have even begun.
But then be honest with yourself, 
have you really won?
Track Name: Every Time
(Verse 1)
I see you
You're standing there
Staring at me
Without a care
In the world.

What do you want?
Do you wish to see in the dark?

Well then find a light.
Emit from yourself.
You're the only way out of this hell
You created
All by yourself,
To live for yourself,
Away from anyone.

(Chorus)
Every time I see your face,
It reminds me of our stupid love,
Just like every time we put on this disguise. 

(Verse 2)
You're missing, 
You're all alone.
No one to help you,
And no one to call home 
On a broken payphone. 

You paid with your life.
You should have taken their advice.

And now you're broken.
You're in denial.
You spin and spin that old radial dial,
But no one answers. 
'Cause no one's home.
So you leave your message at the sound of the tone, it goes:

(Chorus)
Every time I see your face,
It reminds me of our stupid love,
Just like every time we put on this disguise.

Conceal the light between your eyes and their mind.
Lie to them, say that everything's alright.
How do they know you anyway?

(Bridge)
When does all this stupid pain just start to fade away?

(Chorus)
Every time I see your face,
It reminds me of our stupid love,
Just like every time we put on this disguise. (x2)

Conceal the light between your eyes and their mind.
Lie to them, say that everything's alright.
How do they know you anyway?

(End)
When does all this stupid pain just start to fade away?
