Dead of Night

After posting Lovelorn Wasp performed by Coughing Cooties last Sunday, there were requests to hear something by Violent Phlegm, another virtual group that collaborated with AWB to form Coughing Cooties. Dead of Night is Violent Phlegm’s first single.

Dead of Night
Words and Music by Timothy Price
Performed by Violent Phlegm

Still standing I’m bleeding in the dead of night
Battling daemons ’til dawn’s early morning light
Reaching for the future, tried shaking off the past
Following ambitions holding dreams were fading fast
Wading against the current, I stood against the wave
Control-alt-delete, I refuse to be a slave

Tumbling through the ether in the cold and dark
Social media’s shadow leaves its ugly mark
Cyberspace warriors fight by fiber’s light
Daemons call me out in the dead of night

Control-alt-delete, I refuse to be a slave
Wading against the current, I stood against the wave
Following ambitions holding dreams were fading fast
Reaching for the future, tried shaking off the past
Battling daemons ’til dawn’s early morning light
Still standing I’m bleeding in the dead of night

Tumbling through the ether in the cold and dark
Social media’s shadow leaves its ugly mark
Cyberspace warriors fight by fiber’s light
Daemons call me out in the dead of night

Still standing I’m bleeding in the dead of night
Battling daemons ’til dawn’s early morning light
Reaching for the future, tried shaking off the past
Following ambitions holding dreams were fading fast
Wading against the current, I stood against the wave
Control-alt-delete, I refuse to be a slave

Tumbling through the ether in the cold and dark
Social media’s shadow leaves its ugly mark
Cyberspace warriors fight by fiber’s light
Daemons call me out in the dead of night

  1. You are a very talented man, Tim. Always enjoyed the songs from the AWB but the first single Dead of Night from Violent Phlegm rocks too! You rock, my friend!

    • Thank you so much, Angela. The song reflects the daily battle with junk in our webbed in world. I would like to think it will become a classic among VP’s virtual fans and groupies.

    • Thanks, Tiffany. I’m happy you liked the song and the guitar. It was a fun song to do.

  2. A very fun song, Timothy! Your guitar is my fave part, however, guitar is my favourite instrument. One night I’ll do some Crazy Free Art to one (or 2) of your tunes. I might be partial to Freaking on the Food Chain. I might loop it! 😀

  3. You’ve got some serious lyrical thoughts, Timothy ~ great guitar solo at the end as well, it is good to get to see another creative side of you.

    • Thanks, Randall. Search for music, and you’ll find several more original recordings.
