A song written for the campaign Cyberpunk Red: Never Fade Away
I said before that my writing of late has focused quite a bit on the TTRPG campaigns I’m in, and I thought I’d share some of those with you here.
Right now I’m going through songs written in-character by my Rockerboy, K2:
DemoGraphic is the first album/ep released by K2 after their debut performance at Hammer. The album is an eclectic mix of musical styles, from instrumental jazz to an industrial-metal ballad on the same album. The title comes from the fact that most of the songs were on K2’s demo, combined with the fact that the lyrics are mostly autobiographical.
On another level, the title refers to the fact that, like K2 themself, music doesn’t fit into a box but is wild, free, and authentic to itself.
Night City Jazz
This song is largely instrumental, mimicking sounds of Night City and with few vocals
Spend the night sleeping
under incandescent stars
and a neon moon
Memories come creeping
through the window, up the stairs
harbinger of doom
Time is found fleeting
like the humming of the cars
and the city’s low croon
