Rabauw - Scars of Penelope


Don't have much time to produce these days, but this one came out over the past week. First song of 2007, dark electropop. Your honest comments appreciated! Cheerz!

What more remains when you’ve been deprived
Of the colours of life
Withered and torn you lie down on your death bed
Pale-faced, with darkening eyes
A life so rueful
Time to say earth goodbye

(chorus) "Rise a pendragon!
Someone to guide me on my quest for happiness
I feel like I am lost
I’m living in doubt
What to do – can’t figure it out
Surrender myself to you, promise you will help me through"

You promised you would help me through...

No they won’t mourn you
No they won’t miss you
You’ve spent your days serving and crawling
What was it worth for?
Knowing the truth hurts so much more
The biggest regret is this wish you had...

You promised you would help me through...

What more remains when you’ve been deprived
Of the colours of life
Withered and torn you lie down on your death bed
Pale-faced, with darkening eyes
You promised you would help me through
No they won’t mourn you
No they won’t miss you
You’ve spent your days serving and crawling
What was it worth for?
Knowing the truth hurts so much more

Nothing remains
In your final hour you just woke up from the nightmare
Left disillusioned, the tears mirror your pain
Only yourself to blame
The beauty in their smile was crooked and vain

Forget a pendragon, no one will guide you, no!
Blackness for happiness, all are forever lost
Most are dead at birth
Fooled by the scum of the earth
I’ll never surrender to you
To myself I will stay true

You promised you would help me through...

    hey nice, good old wavy 80's...
    cool with the chorus and the pitchy break around 3:25
    again: great lyrics!
    (+very much like the synthsound at the end)

    bandarlog [be] - 15 years ago

    Wowawiwaah!! :D Get yourself a nice dark costume and go spread your darkness! this is guuuuud! Your voice is really suited for this kind of music. maybe bring up the high mids and highs in your voice a bit more upfront. And you need a dirtier and harder snare but apart from that: this is the shit in that genre!

    Distreality [be] - 15 years ago

    i love it !!

    great oldschool feel, good compo, good lyrics....

    maybe here and there u could put some delays on the end of the words....

    great stuff !!!

    Notip [be] - 15 years ago

    Good work ;)

    Sapaj [be] - 15 years ago

    mec c'est un TUBE ce morceau!

    KWeN [be] - 15 years ago

    yes, really nice voice !!! i can only encourage you to continue in this way, real real good ;)

    You should have kept this for the dark contest I think ...

    Rabauw [be] - 15 years ago

    Thank you all so much! your comments are heart-warming!
    @ Funky: yeah 'cold' that's exactly what my music is about, my style has been described before by people as 'coldwave' which I think suits the music perfectly. And yeah I know you usually prefer warmer/more optimistic music, it's an acquired taste after all. cheers for your comments (and all the others too of course)!

    AudioCrack [be] - 15 years ago

    not my style but i have waaay respect for lyric writers ... i tried it several times before and find it a very hard thing to do ... always have a text but putting it decent in your track is hard... you managed to do that proplerly... very dark song, like that.

    Falcon030 [be] - 15 years ago

    nice crude voices and absynth !
    drums need some more push ore brightness thats only my opinion ?

    good work rabauw

    reaman [be] - 15 years ago

    what more can i say?
    i like most of your songs (still being a metalboy) but this one of the better ones...

    Rabauw [be] - 15 years ago

    Yeah, my metal background obviously carries through in all the other stuff I make. I personally agree this is one of my better pieces.

    Bedlam [be] - 15 years ago

    awesome !!!!

    Erophin [be] - 15 years ago

    chap chap ... grumpf ..gretig aan men volume knopf pullend ... sound is goin deep into thewalls of my dungeon ...

    Erophin [be] - 15 years ago

    nice !!

    Anonymous [be] - 14 years ago

    Rabauw [be] - 14 years ago

    mange tak min norsk ven! :)

    SandwichGarnier [be] - 14 years ago

    Yeah! Bauhaus rules :-)

    yenneman [be] - 14 years ago

    Muahaha, this song...it grabs you, haunts you and teases you. I'm sorry my comment comes this late, mr Rabauw, but music wasn't exactly my priority the past 6 months.
    This must be your best song I've heard 'till now -danceable, great vocal effects, nice details and weird sounds-.

    Makes ya feel eeeevvviiiilllll.

    reaman [be] - 14 years ago

    once again, really great track

    Rabauw [be] - 14 years ago

    Thanks a lot! Personally I find this one of my best songs too.

    SylvaindeMerode [be] - 14 years ago

    At the first sight, it was not my kind, but what the hell in here ! O_o Simple melody and very efficient lyrics and effects on the voices. Soucis du détail et tout et tout. I like it.
    Et on fera, 100 X plutôt qu'une, pampou sur la boite et la petite villa...

    Rabauw [be] - 14 years ago


    Gogole [be] - 13 years ago
