Here’s another demo for the new Cenozoic album, Lemonade. This one has a really dark feel to it. Can you believe that I was unhappy when I wrote it? I’m going to keep the dark edge as I turn it into space rock. I’m adding lots of restrained, shimmering cymbal washes to the drum part. It’s taking on an almost-but-not-quite, unattainable kind of sound, which is apt when considering who it was written about.
I’m basically happy with the lyrics. I get a little uncomfortable listening to them, and that’s good. They’re very direct, pull no punches, and leave little to the imagination. They came from a real emotional place (I was so screwed up over her), so that’s appropriate. I had no questions about what I was feeling. I may change one or two things, but you’ll have to wait for the album to hear them.
