    Oh i see. Since you know mods don't look at harassment in a good light, you're going to pretend you don't get a kick out of calling me a whore.
    Anyway, Of course i'm amped.

    I'm digging the new guitar sounds with the long, ringing notes during the intro and verse. Not sure whether that'll be reflective of the album, or if it's a gimmick to sound "futuristic," given the title of the song. Other than that, it sounded like typical Offspring fare. It definitely didn't sound bad, but I'm not as excited as I was when I heard the early demos of "Hammerhead" and "Half-Truism."

    I guess I can hear similarities to Rise Against, but I wouldn't have noticed them on my own. At least it doesn't sound note-for-note like a specific song of theirs. Kind of like Nothingtown doesn't sound like any specific Green Day song, yet sounds like something that they might do.
    "LIVE OR DIE, MAN??"

    "DIE!!!!!"

    "WRONG! HOOOONK!"

    It does sound somewhat similar, then again, I don't really listen to Rise Against, and if I heard "Savior" before "Future is Now" I'd have said that they sound kinda like The Offspring. 'cept for the vocals, their singer isn't bad but ain't got a unique voice like Dex.

    The breakdown (in Savior) is totally like the intro for Hammerhead IMO.

    Will you take what's in my head
    And erase me when I'm dead?
    'Cause the future is now
    Now, I disappear

    Now take ?????
    Save me from the light
    'Cause the future is here
    This is how I disappear.

    Money down the spiral
    With the lie, a better man
    Shouting promises tomorrow


    Yes. I think it's "glass will grow" "Why?", you may ask. Well, Dexter said "glass" and it almost makes sense because in a city made of diamonds, maybe glass would grow.
    I think it would be cool if the title was "how I disappear" too

    Edit: another thing I've noticed is that Dexter sounds sooooo good on this one. I think he's not trying too hard with a damn good result. the more I listen the more I'm into the song

    You're totally right, teachers aren't allowed to have really shitty laptop speakers I normally hook up my external speakers when I really want to listen to stuff, but I wasn't about to do that to listen to a one-minute live clip. :P I will most *definitely* bust out the speakers when the album drops, though!

    Listening to the new clip that was posted, and with my headphones on, this is what I hear with the two clips compared:

    Will you take what's in my head
    And erase me when I'm dead?
    'Cause the future is now
    Now, I disappear

    And now day has turned to night
    And saved me from the light
    'Cause the future is here
    This is how I disappear.

    After listening to the clip, I'll get around to revising my lyrics later today or tomorrow.

    Here's an update on the lyrics, more importantly the chorus and second verse

    This city's made of diamonds
    And tomorrow grass will grow
    All the freedom that divides us
    They're coming after me

    Flashback 1984
    Now who's, knock knocking on your door
    .....starts a riot
    They are coming after me

    Now! Life is not the same
    I'm one
    Sparks turn into flames

    Will you take what's in my head?
    Erase me when i'm dead
    The future is now, now I disappear
    Now day has turned to night
    Save me from the light
    The future is now, This is how I disappear

    Running down the spiral
    With the lie, a better man
    Shouting promises tomorrow
    Take one last look and see


    Now you see me now you don't
    .....no last string of hope
    ?????
    They're coming after me

    Now, life is just god's game

    As I posted in the other thread, I combined the two videos into one audio file and cleaned it up a little bit for everyones listening pleasure.Download the mp3 file here (I did not feel like converting it to a video for youtube...)

    http://www.mediafire.com/?6wyate0c4cor98e

    And as should be known, the audio was taken from these two videos:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JzS9gNbOrtQ
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_U5bMzcGF0s

    Also, here is what I hear from they lyrics after lots of audio editing, removing noise, slowing it down/changing the tempo, etc. See the other thread for more details


    The Future is Now

    This city's made of diamonds
    And tomorrow glass will grow
    All the freedoms that divide us
    They're coming after me

    Flashback 1984
    Now who's knock knocking at your door
    The ____ ____ starts to riot
    They are coming after me

    Now! Life is not the same
    I am one
    Sparks turn into flames

    Will you take what's in my head?
    And erase me when I'm dead
    ‘Cause the future is now, now I'm disappearing
    And the day has turned to night
    Can you save me from the light
    ‘Cause the future is here, this is how I disappear

    Running down the spiral
    With the lie, a better man
    Shouting promises tomorrow
    Take one last look and see

    Now you see me now you don't
    No foul play no string a throat
    The hero yet to light us
    They're coming after me

    Now, life is just God's game
