Song: "Secret Origin"

Inspired by the secret origins of superheroes, the speaker in this song decides to start over again but not tell anyone about it, except, of course, the listener of the song.  On the recording, it's just me on guitar and vocals and smacking a chair for the beat.  It slows down and speeds up, but if you come to this blog, you probably aren't the type of person who wants your music Auto-Tuned anyway.  Lyrics are below and you can download the MP3 here.  It's the same deal as always.  If you like a song, then feel free to cover it if you're in a band or whatnot.  I love to hear covers of my songs, so please let me know about your version.  If you start making money, then send me a check/we can work out a deal.  Similarly, if you want to use a song for your Youtube video or whatnot, then just let me know.  It's usually fine by me unless it's a commercial product or whatnot.  Find out first though.  Write me at wredfright ATATAT yahoo DOTT com.
 
I've never had a dying alien give me a magic ring

I've never been splashed by chemicals and struck by lightning

I've never had my world explode and my parents send me away

So don't tell anybody but I'm starting over today

Starting over today

Starting over today

I'm starting over

It's my

Secret Origin

I've never been bitten by a radioactive spider and had survivor's guilt

I've never had my heart beat only because of the armor I've built

I've never saved a boy's life and been caught in the explosion of the gamma ray

And if I want to dress up like a bat then I will dress up like a bat

And if I want to dress like a cat then I will dress like a cat

And if I want to wear a Robin Hood hat then I will wear a Robin Hood hat

And if I want to dress like that

Yes that

Then I will dress like that

I've never been the subject of a secret government experiment

I've never developed mutant powers and had to wonder where all my friends went

I've never had my mother get so lonely that she sculpted me out of clay

I'm starting over today
