Burning Out (ft. PrinceWhateverer & Drummershy)

about

SInce 2018 I've been a little bit obsessed with the Dark Souls video game series by FromSoftware...

Dark Souls 3 in particular (probably since it's the newest) always struck me visually and after doing Video game covers almost exclusively for a couple of years I figured I would do an original. After changing the key a billion times and struggling with how to make the song interesting, I finally hit up PrinceWhateverer to help me out since having another voice in there really helped the song flow.

Also that last held note was hell to record.

lyrics

Hollowed husks of those who can't die
Left to rot by the fading fire
The fear of Darkness fueled the lie
That more souls should burn on the pyre

Chorus
Embers glow as they hang in the air
Sunbeams glitter off the ash
The world has folded at the seams
Seeking the warmth of a fire that won't last

A thousand years have gone
Just like the millenia before
This fire has burned so long
Who can find the will to care anymore

Chorus

Nothing lasts forever
Not the dark nor tended flame

***
Continue the cycle or usurp the flame
become a god or just another link with no name
***

Embers glow as they hang in the air
Sunbeams glitter off the ash
The world has broken at the seams
Seeking the warmth of a fire that won't last
