HOUSES OF FIRE is the 3rd single release from RENDER, which will be coming to Noisetrade.com soon.
HOUSES ON FIRE: Although the title is never said as it is written in the song (Why can't you see that your house is on fire?) I titled it HOUSES ON FIRE since it had better imagery than just one house on fire. I wrote it about a musician that I used to work with who was extremely talented but an extremely, huge pain in the ass. High maintenance personality, drug user, etc.This single version was remixed and edited since the original album has the word FUCKING in it and I cleaned it up for this single release just so it wouldn't be offensive to those who can't handle "language".
THE WORD LONELY: This is essentially the same song that was included on the previous EP but in a shorter form. Slightly remixed but more or less the same.
DANCE ME TO THE END OF THE WORLD: This was written and recorded shortly after the events of 9/11 took place and while it doesn't reference the event it's about being with the one you love until the end of the world. This is the edited version of the original song which runs over 7 minutes.
LOVE IN THE TIME OF CHOLERA: An instrumental which was inspired by the novel by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
TIME: A song that was written a few days before Christmas 2001. Thinking of mum and religion and the meaning of mortality. It was originally titled ONLY TIME but because Enya had released a song with that title a earlier in the year and it was big hit I didn't want anyone to think I was trying to steal her thunder. The album version features some ambient effects that open the track which were omitted for this version, which is also slightly remixed.
