about

Original by Inverse T. Clown. Recorded as another quickie challenge (completed in just a few hours and as few takes as possible).

The song challenge can be found here: todaysthedaycovers.blogspot.com/p/about-this-site.html

The covers themselves (currently there are eleven) start here: todaysthedaycovers.blogspot.com

I made a super-quickie video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=xqMYzEOmjCE

Update: since I made the first quickie challenge version, I have updated the track a couple of times, first with a better guitar solo, then adding bass and changing up the drum breaks, as well as tweaking mix levels and mastering settings. The audio in the Bandcamp version is no longer identical to the one used in the video (but audio on YouTube is horribly compressed, so if you're looking for the best audio version you should be listening to this one anyway...)

lyrics

I had a dream last night
In which everything wrong in my life went right
And much to my surprise
It was a quick transition
It played out so vividly
That's it's hard to describe what it did to me
Suffice to say I took it
As a premonition

Today's the day I get a move on
Today's the day I change
Today's the day that I improve on
Who I am and everything I do:
Today's the day that I break up with you

Just stop and think about
All the times I gave in so that we'd work out
If you look at the score
I think I tip the balance
But you prob'ly think that's great
'Cause you take and you drain and manipulate
I guess every succubus
Is gonna have those talents

Today's the day that I get angry
Today's the day I fight
Today's the day that I harangue
The telling-off that's way past overdue:
Today's the day that I break up with you

Don't look at me like that
With your cute pouting lips and your big, sad eyes
You're pretty, but you're pretty much a bitch

It's time for you to see
That the world is the world universally
And nowhere does it say
That you can run my planet
So you take our history
And your need for control and co-misery
And brace yourself real good
Then go ahead and cram it

Today's the day that I'm the victor
Today's the day I win
Today's the day I do your sister
Here's a toast to starting life anew:
Today's the day that I wake up
It's time to say I've had enough
Today's the day that I break up with you
