about

The form of this one is a basse danse, a kind of Rennaisance period IDM whereby a two part melody ending in a I-V-I was played over a steady prominent drumbeat. Contemporary recordings of these throw in a variant theme, pack a few in together or add a breather section but the dances themselves could go on unchanging for as much as ten to fifteen minutes. They weren't intended to be listened to like chamber music. If you have a rudimentary knowledge of western musical structure it's not hard to come up with one. Hopefully, mine is a keeper. You and history must decide this.

lyrics

PROCESS
Pass through the yawn, blood red and torn.
Stand for your pace, scream into the race.
Bludgeon to the lead, glory in your bleed.
Battleflag unfulred, welcome to the world.

All fear allay, call the end of day.
Mon chic ma chere, tomber dans l’enfer.

A, B to C, warfare at three.
Torture at the sink, forward with a wink.
Squeeze on to the cart, hunt your counterpart.
Fitness in the dark, run and leave a spark.

All fear allay, call the end of day.
Mon chic ma chere, tomber dans l’enfer.

One leads to fun leads to shun leads to none.
Armored to the sun for a battle not begun.

All fear allay, call the end of day.
Mon chic ma chere, tomber dans l’enfer.

Riches for all but not those who fall.
Upon their sinking sides up to the light we stride.
Bear unsmiling truth and the mockery of youth.
Bend ye now with pride. Sink into the tide.

All fear allay, call the end of day.
Mon chic ma chere, tomber dans l’enfer.
