[Eleanor Forte/Luka] One Minute Winter - Flags Will Fly [HAPPY HALLOWEEN]


#1

LYRICS:

It’s almost my birthday, tons of games are nearing
Finding out more game days, streets no longer clearing

You should do a song about Ed, he was a legend
Everyone feels like at world’s end, ticking by seconds

Finals are a calling, everyone’s a steering
People gather falling, in line for the cheering

You should get a savings instead, mind your own health and
Way early on just go to bed, better your stiff hands

Flags will fly, now keep your head up high
Flags will fly, have your knees bent to the lie
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Flags will fly, now keep your head up high
Flags will fly, have your knees bent to the lie
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

We all know all these flags will fly
World comes to blows these battles rise
We all know all these flags will fly
Pick your battles and choose your side

So who are you cheering for?
Why are we all gearing more?

Stop watching that dumb little game, you’re gonna just faint
Everything’s a tunneling mess, don’t make those constraints

Only this team can set the league free
Keep the steam and run the scoring spree

Why don’t you go get some shut-eye, you’re gonna need it
You don’t wanna let someone die, they’re gonna feed it

Flags will fly, now keep your head up high
Flags will fly, have your knees bent to the lie
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Flags will fly, now keep your head up high
Flags will fly, have your knees bent to the lie
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

We all know all these flags will fly
World comes to blows these battles rise
We all know all these flags will fly
Pick your battles and choose your side

Out of the clouds
Back down to earth
Where you belong
What you deserve
Is this the end or a new start?
Will you amend or break their hearts?

We all know all these flags will fly
World comes to blows these battles rise
We all know all these flags will fly
Pick your battles and choose your side


Happy Halloween everyone! Although I don’t really celebrate Halloween, my birthday is just two days before Halloween every year so my band and I opted to do this song in honour of my birthday. ^-^

Guitar tone was achieved through the Darkglass Alpha-Omega 900 amplifier which is more commonly used as a bass amp, but after seeing Erik Arko getting guitar tones out of the same amplifier and seeing how some of the other YouTube users got their guitar tones out of their own Alpha-Omega products I finally gave it another try and this is the best result I’ve had so far. ^-^

The guitar I’ve used is the RG9QM Black Ice loaded with a single EMG 909X pickup (yes, that is a 9-string guitar) but this might be one of the last times I use this guitar for a while, as I recently bought a Legator Artist Signature LM-9 (also a 9-string guitar) to add to my arsenal, which is getting new strings installed as we speak. ^-^

Bass was Solemn Tones Loki Bass with the tone being a combination of Neural DSP Darkglass B7K Ultra and the Neural DSP Parallax.

Drums is the usual GGD Periphery IV, Taylor Larson Luke Holland Drumshotz, and 3 Sigma Audio Top Shelf Drums combined to make one super sound.

We also got Soundtoys Decapitator which we used on everything.

Special thanks to StellularFruit for suggesting this combination between Eleanor Forte and Megurine Luka! One of these days I’ll have to go as far as attempt buying CeVIO but…
