why did you take clarity?

Okay, so I’ll admit it, everything’s that’s been sitting on my harddrive/in my head, wanting to be posted — is finally getting posted. \o/

This was written in late 2013, but sat for ages because I was so unhappy with my mixing and the way it was sounding. I re-recorded it a second time in 2014; still nothing. Finally, I came back to it again this year — this time, I realized that part of the reason why the sound was so “off” is because of how I was singing it. I kind of find that my voice is generally evocative and full — but this song required an airy, almost lazy tone to match Foxes’ vocals more closely. That, combined with autotune (which I’ve never used before), finally made the vocals have that almost-whiny, robotic quality to them that the song desperately needed.

Clarity

League of Legends/Zedd feat. Foxes parody

High dive in with Sweeping Blades and a Jax who’ll never die
I thought we might have a chance, but you make me wanna cry
Try hard just to CS creeps ’cause we both know how this ends
Can’t run from the ignite tick and you start to feed again

‘Cause I am your ADC, you need to peel for me
Chasing despite my pings, get caught and we both just die

If our lane is 0 and 3, why did you build Malady?
And our lane’s a travesty, why did you take Clarity?

(Hey-ay, hey-ay-ay. Hey-ay, hey-ay-ay. Hey-ay, hey-ay-ay. Hey-ay, hey)

If our lane is 0 and 3, why prolong the agony?
And our lane… (*facepalm*) /ff gg, why did you take Clarity?

Keep trying to make some plays, but it all comes at a cost
No wards at the Baron pit, time to give it up for lost
Jax clears out the creep wave top and we all try to push mid
Can’t burst through the exhaust pop and their Jinx escapes again

‘Cause I am the ADC, you need to bring the CC
Chasing relentlessly, ignite, but she never dies

If our lane is 0 and 3, why did you build Malady?
And our lane’s a travesty, why did you take Clarity?

(Hey-ay, hey-ay-ay. Hey-ay, hey-ay-ay. Hey-ay, hey-ay-ay. Hey-ay, hey)

Why did you take Clarity?
Why are you my enemy?
Why did you take Clarity?

If our lane is 0 and 3, why prolong the agony?
And our lane… (*facepalm*) /ff gg, why did you take Clarity?
