Relative filth - a slow, sad song for Glendon.
Info: A song about being over-optimistic with society. Questions statements that make us seem good. There'll allways be sin on this earth, it's just a matter of opening your eyes to find it.
[chorus] (6) Beautiful things in life, 100101 (8) are they as big as we make them? 010-----? / 10010010 (6) Beautiful things in life, (8) What is the motive behind it? 10010010 [v1] (9) Are we wearing rose-tinted glasses? 8? How distorted do we want our view? / is our view? (9) we all have (beat) selective senses (maybe 100110110) ( ) filtering out what we dislike ?chorus? [v2] (9) Dulling our senses with painkiller (4+4) coz the truth hurts, yeah, the truth hurts. (9) (8) chorus [v3] (9) Disposing trash in beautiful bins. (8) Doesn't change the fact that it's there. (9) Bins can't have true inner beauty, (8) It's what's inside that makes it count. [bridge] (9) Dressing up in our favourite mask, (101001010) (7) Just building a grand fascade, [echo:]it's an illusion. (9) Masters of deception, we all are. 10) Only in Heaven there'll be pure truth. 1001001001 (8) We're livin' in (pause) relative filth. ((0101-1000 OR 0101-1111) also slowing down) [v4] (9) There's only one way out of this mess (8) to be freed from this world of trash (9) ... washed in the blood of the Lamb / (8) who was slain... [ending, maybe with chorus?] [scratchpad] Why would anybody want to live here? ideas: (Sinful core, whitewashed tombs, looking good on outside, choose not to see bad, bad can be seen if looked for, always there.)
