Angels and Vampires

She scribbles his order down
to the beat of espresso machines
Adjusts her peroxide crown
Retracts her diaphanous wings

She's obsessive and manic depressive
Carmilla hates what she's become

Gabe looks in her stained-glass eyes
and sings his celestial refrain
Peeks through his own disguise
and gives her a chance to explain

Her defection and lack of reflection
Gabriel waits through the night

And he said that Angels and Vampires hide behind their wings
He said that Angels and Vampires hide behind their wings

They enter the cold night air
and head south on Patterson street
Climb up the cathedral stairs
propelled by the blood and caffeine

Then he mentions he offers redemption
Carmilla can't make up her mind

And he said that Angels and Vampires hide behind their wings
He said that Angels and Vampires hide behind their wings

But she's got to find her way home
But it's too late

Here are some of the tools that I used to record the track:
  1. Martin Acoustic Guitar in Standard tuning with a capo at the third fret
  2. Les Paul Studio Electric Guitar in Open A tuning (EAEAC#E) for the slide guitar parts.
  3. Washburn Bass Guitar
  4. Rode NT-3 microphone (to record the acoustic guitar and my vocals)
  5. Apple Logic Pro 7 recording software
    1. The EXS24 Sampler for the violin, organ, and synthesizer sounds
    2. The ES2 software synth
    3. Logic's included compressor, delay, and reverb plug-ins
    4. The electric guitar parts were recorded through Logic's Guitar Amp Pro plug-in
    5. The drum parts were created using Beta Monkey's Drum Werks V loop collection
