9. The Day we All Fell Down
washed up on your shores as the shattered hull of dreams goes down this castaway of love seeks shelter in your arms on this dusk more than light is lost as night deals out its black card WON'T YOU COVER ME FROM THE COLD IN YOUR WARM EMBRACE I FEEL ALMOST HOME WON'T YOU SHELTER ME FROM THE WORLD WITH YOU I FEEL I CAN'T GO WRONG
I think the metaphor is pretty self-explanatory.... When your ship sinks you hope you wash up somewhere. And when you do, you are probably going to curl up on the beach in the first warm spot you can find and wish the world would all go away. On this song I used a lot of echoes and reverberation to give a sense of motion that is hopefully similar to what you hear when you are on the beach: Waves crashing and reverberating, sea gulls crying, etc. It might even have an underwater sort of a feeling, which is also ok because there is always the risk of drowning. I used an organ on the chorus to give it an almost funeral feel. It was a crappy low end Yamaha keyboard and I don't play piano (yet) so who knows how effective it was.
