Reaper

Liner Notes

Hopefully my songs aren't too much of a bummer listener. I think the main point of this song is that time is short so try not to waste it on waiting for death... or something like that.

Lyrics

Reaper

Bet on your life
The reaper will get you in time
Bet on your wife
The reaper will get her in time

Time is all we have
yet we have so little time

Bet on your life
All children will meet him in time
Bet on your life
Nature will meet him in time

A strong message that you put over really effectively. I love the simplicity of the repeated chorus and way the whole thing builds. Sounds a bit Bowie-esque to me.

Enjoyed the way this builds - gets quite intense towards the end. I really like that chord change on the line 'yet we have so little time'

Loving that flanger/phaser effect. Great psychedelic prog rock vibe with cool vocals. Nice arrangement that grows in a subtle manner.

Something hypnotic about that beat. I like the chord choices. I guess I must enjoy sad songs cause I enjoyed this. I liked the pain in the lyric. :)
Nice work. Simple but effective.
