djezi: The Funk

Overkill

(djezi & Adrian Bryant)
July 29, 2008
All music performed by djezi, vocal performance by Adrian Bryant
This was a collaboration that was originally planned to be with Stuart Wolferman of Imaginary Johnny. He got busy with his "Painting Over the Dirt" album, and I invited Adrian Bryant to see what he could do with this song. This version is NOT the version that I had planned for "The Science". I was frankly bored with the version that we had worked on. It was so...procedural. This is more my style...
I can't get to sleep
I think about the implications
Of diving in too deep
And possibly the complications

Especially at night
I worry over situations
I know I'll be alright
Perhaps it's just imagination

Day after day it reappears
Night after night my heartbeat shows the fear
Ghosts appear and fade away

Alone between the sheets
Only brings exasperation
It's time to walk the streets
Smell the desperation

At least there's pretty lights
And though there's little variation
It nullifies the night from overkill

Day after day it reappears
Night after night my heartbeat shows the fear
Ghosts appear and fade away
Come back another day

I can't get to sleep
I think about the implications
Of diving in too deep
And possibly the complications

Especially at night
I worry over situations
I know I'll be alright
It's just overkill

Day after day it reappears
Night after night my heartbeat shows the fear
Ghosts appear and fade away
Ghosts appear and fade away
Ghosts appear and fade away
