Frank Iero

Frank Iero, former My Chemical Romance guitarist and Death Spells vocalist, has released a new demo titled “joyriding.”

“hi…so today i ended up having a very nice conversation about music and other things with Sam Coare from Kerrang! Magazine. after i got off the phone i went down into my basement and wrote this song. Sam and i had talked about inspiration and creativity, and i told him i go through periods of making things and then a week later hating everything i’ve made and destroying it all. i told him i’d like to try and experiment with creating something and releasing it before i have a chance to hate myself for making it. so when i wrote this song it almost seemed like a dare…

joyriding. (demo)
i’m not sure what they said, but if it’s true i’ll bet
it’s just one more thing i’ll regret.
i hate my weaknesses, they made me who i am.
‘yea it’s cool i’ll be ok’
as i felt your pain wash over me, so i dry your eyes and hide my shakes
because i hate that look that’s on your face.
these things inside my head, they never make much sense.
so i wouldn’t hold my breath…
i hope i die before they save my soul.
‘yea it’s cool i’ll be ok’
as i felt your pain wash over me, so i dry your eyes and hide my shakes
because i hate that look that’s on your face.
don’t hang up, because i don’t have anyone left here
don’t give up, don’t hang on to anything i’ve said.
i hate my weaknesses, they made me who i am
it makes no difference, i’m insignificant.
‘yea it’s cool i’ll be ok’
as i felt your pain wash over me, so i dry your eyes and hide my shakes
because i hate that look that’s on your face
and this is not the end for us.
