Quoting Wiki: "Triskaidekaphobia (from Greek tris meaning "3", kai meaning "and", deka meaning "10" and phobos meaning "fear" or "morbid fear") is fear of the number 13."

Happy New Year - 2013 is here.

The silly wizard wannabes are at loss again,
The Indians ran out of space on that rock.
The aliens do not want humans on their ship,
The angels don't want us trashing the place.

Chuck rang God and said, move the party date,
But this year's number will sure be a charm;
Now to frighten the silly folk again,
Bring out the glorious number of doom.

Stevie got it all wrong;
When all else fails, superstition is the way.

Azi abuses keyboards, the cheap Ibanez and SM-57.
Starring: Cubase 5, Garritan Personal Orchestra, Miroslav Philharmonik, Kore Player, Hypersonic II, Amplitube 3, Voxengo Crunchessor, CSRHall, TRacks3 670 comp, TRacks3 EQP 1A
Also starring some excellent Freebies: DigitalFishPhones Spitfish & Endorphin, TubeDriver 0.88, Nanotron

Cheers Matt
Every time you use autotune, God kills a kitten.

evo2slo - Closer to the Sun Part II - The Mission of Today

it's getting colder
the longer that we stay
the days are shorter
the light is further away
mother nature
is spinning in her grave
father time
is slowly slipping away

woke up and realized
i've been dizzy all my life
my body is in orbit
spinning circles around my mind
a beacon shining darkness
in an ocean full of light
the waves come crashing down
hold your shadow tight

the mission of today has just begun
to bring everyone

looked out of the window
the sky was on the ground
stepped outside still don't know
if i fell up or down
the planets they're all strung up
on a string like tiny pearls
who on earth could wear such
a necklace made of worlds

the mission of today has just begun
to bring everyone
closer to the sun

Instruments: u-he Bazille, Agile Telecaster, Fender P-Bass, Steven Slate Drums, Vocals

This is a sequel to a track I submitted last month for the Bazille one-synth-challenge.
