NUR EIN XV - Carte Blanche

Post by Generic »

Carte Blanche
by Jon Eric

The fires are burning brightly
And the sirens sound so clear
Tonight
With the violence mounting quickly,
Every conflict feels so near
Tonight

They'll place their gifts at your feet
And then burn you in effigy, effigy

How can you live
With a gun in your face
And the mutilated world inside your eye?
How can you stand
Anything in your way?
Either live carte blanche or die

There's a clarity that comes
From being so high off the ground
Up here
You can feel the brink of bedlam,
How we're all so tightly wound
Up here

Our moment of reckoning
Thanatos beckoning, beckoning

How can you live
With a gun in your face
And the mutilated world inside your eye?
How can you stand
Anything in your way?
Live carte blanche

Throwing your life away
For something you don't understand
Building to something great
A master plan

How can you live
With a gun in your face
And the mutilated world inside your eye?
How can you stand
Anything in your way?
Either live carte blanche or die

How can you live
With a knife at your throat
And the scars of every injury in mind?
How can you stand
Anything in your way?
Either live carte blanche
Or die
Or die

The Lowest Bitter - Carte Blanche

Liner Notes
Spoiler
Show
I don't really like James Bond. Let me rephrase that; I despise James Bond and everything that he stands for.
This song is my attempt to write a theme befitting the obnoxious prick.
This challenge leaves a lot open to interpretation. I decided it wasn't worth trying to ape the Bond theme sound, as I'm sure a lot of people will have done that far better than I ever could. I'm really not very good at pastiche, and Bond themes are basically a pastiche of themselves already which makes aping them even harder. But I did put loads of strings in this song as a concession to Bond themes, and I made use of a drum beat in the chorus that reminded me of Bond chase scenes.
Lyrics
psychopath, wielding a gun
kill a man and make a pun
fuck a femme fatale and run
I'm James Bond,
and I'm an asshole

I'm a government killer,
carte blanche,
I do anything I want
I'm an Eton wanker,
carte blanche,
I do anything I want
and what the fuck are you gonna do about it?

I drive a shitty British car,
and I drink martinis wrong
I do anything I want
because I'm a fucking asshole

carte blanche,
carte blanche,
carte blanche,
carte blanche,
and what the fuck are you gonna do?

I'm a government killer,
carte blanche,
I do anything I want
I'm an emblem of the empire,
carte blanche,
I do anything I want
I'm the mascot of misogynists,
carte blanche,
I do anything I want
I'm an Eton wanker,
carte blanche,
I do anything I want
I'm a government killer,
carte blanche,
I do anything I want
I'm an emblem of the empire,
carte blanche,
I do anything I want
I'm the mascot of misogynists,
carte blanche,
I do anything I want
I'm a government killer,
I'm a government killer,
and what the fuck are you gonna do?
I'm a government killer

As soon as I saw the challenge I pretty much decided where I wanted to go with this. A synthwave bond theme, starring Keanu Reeves as James Bond (naturally). The lyrics come from me being uncultured and not knowing what Carte Blanche meant and finding the below in the dictionary:

"Unrestricted power to act at one's own discretion; unconditional authority"

I really liked the term "At One's Discretion" mainly because it sounded like a posh British thing to say. I also think my subconscious may have taken over and made it about my struggles with this competition. A couple of things I tried differently thanks to some great advice on the forums.

1. I reposition my condenser mic, turns out I had it set up all wrong which wasn't doing me any favours.
2. I read and re-read the brief and tried my hardest to make sure I met it (I feel like I dodged a bullet last week).
3. I kept recording the vocals until I was happy with the delivery and didn't just settle.

Regardless of the outcome, I had loads fun with this one.
you're heading for your knees
and my heart is contradictory
but then I hold this key
and the suspense is killing me

at one's discretion
we choose to play this game
at one's discretion
we choose who will remain
at one's discretion
we choose to laugh or cry
at one's discretion
we choose to live or die

you're looking for reprieve
from a sentence draw in vein
but they hold to the key
that will decide your fate

at one's discretion
we choose to play this game
at one's discretion
we choose who will remain
at one's discretion
we choose to laugh or cry
at one's discretion
we choose to live or die

Third Cat - "Carte Blanche" / shadow

can't keep on running from me forever
searching all around the world
you are a killer
and a creep undercover
oooh, you are a dirty girl

got carte blanche to do what i want
blank check for what i need
to catch a killer
no fear of the thriller
for justice, i've got the greed

we used to run so well together
searching all around the world
you were my lover
as we crept undercover
oooh you were my sexy girl

got carte blanche to do what i want
blank check for what i need
to catch a killer
no fear of the thriller
for justice, i've got the greed

Balance Lost

Night falls and crowds that gather
Are distracted by your subtle ways
The dangerous games that we play

It's only fools
Who play by the rules
Your desires come tumbling like an avalanche
Carte blanche

Free reign to do all the things you do
Don't care if it causes pain
Even the dice know the touch of a velvet stain

It's only fools
Who play by the rules
Your desires come tumbling like an avalanche
Carte blanche

extremely last minute shadow, apologies for these lyrics!
She comes home late at night
and spies a silhouette
a flash disturbs the darkness
with no time for regret

His record is untouchable
despite the blood on his hands
He cannot sleep
Yet he has carte blanche

Your conscience isn't troubled
and yet your eyes are peeled
because the second that he heard your name
you knew your fate was sealed

His record is untouchable
despite the blood on his hands
He cannot sleep
Yet he has carte blanche
His record is untouchable
despite the blood on his hands
He cannot sleep
Yet he has carte blanche

Nick Soma - Carte Blanche

You used to feel
So weak and small
Empty and useless
No power at all
But there are things
You now have learned
And so today
The tide has turned

Now you got carte blanche
You can do anything
You got carte blanche
Let this life take wing
For better or worse
Both blessing and curse
Today's the day to decide

Think twice before
Each step you take
Act wisely now
For your own sake
You're standing at
The precipice
Now you must make
The best of this

You got carte blanche
You can do anything
You got carte blanche
Let this life take wing
For better or worse
Both blessing and curse
Today's the day to decide
You got carte blanche
In this battle of life and death
You got carte blanche
It's on you to choose your path
For better or worse
Both blessing and curse
It's such a dangerous ride

It sure is tempting
To act irresponsibly
When the whole wide world
Is at your feet
You never know
Who is your friend or enemy
Don't trust everybody
That you meet
Ooooohhhhooooohhhhh

You used to feel
So weak and small
Empty and useless
No power at all
But there are things
You now have learned
And so today
The tide has turned

Carte blanche
You can do anything
You got carte blanche
Let this life take wing
For better or worse
Both blessing and curse
Today's the day to decide
You got carte blanche
In this battle of life and death
You got carte blanche
It's on you to choose your path
For better or worse
Both blessing and curse
It's one hell of a ride

When Owl made that joke about The Best Ever Death Metal Bond In Denton I couldn't get it out of my head. It's so silly but I thought I could do something with it. I also couldn't get the Cate Blanchett / Carte Blanche line out, and this song was born. Wadeye is a remote Indigenous community in the Northern Territory of Australia. My sister worked there for five years a teacher and still has very strong ties to the community, and I travelled up occasionally to work with her as a tutor. On paper it can seem like the wild wild west (except north), and a lot has been made of the fact that family factions in the community name themselves after heavy metal bands. Vice, for example, did a bunch of gross articles that focussed on this aspect while simultaneously doubling down on a bunch of problems in the community; basically they heard about the heavy metal thing, decided to write an article about it then treated their few days there as a fishbowl experience entirely lacking in depth or understanding. Wadeye, like most remote Aboriginal communities, has been very marginalised by colonisation and because of that they have lot of challenges to deal with day-to-day, along with the regular endemic societal racism experienced by all Indigenous Australians. For example, Indigenous Australians are incarcerated at a rate highly disproportional to their population: 29% of Australian prisoners are Aboriginal, but they only represent 3% of the population in total. In reference to the original song, John Darnielle talked about the "Hail Satan!" ending as being off the cuff and kind of a hopeful, joyous sentiment. I wanted to keep it there, obviously, but in the context of this story the explicit Satan reference didn't feel appropriate, so I set Cate Blanchett up as the hopeful, joyous Devil character and as such, she gets the coda. It think she'd approve.

Carte Blanche - Hot Pink Halo (shadow)

***

The Best Ever Death Metal Bond Out Of Darwin
Was a script by a kid who grew up in Wadeye
A Judas Priest Boy who also loved spies
He'd write down his stories and hide them away

The Best Ever Death Metal Bond Out Of Darwin
Starred Cate Blanchett as Carte Blanche
A villain who evolved with delight from the blank page
Quick witted and complex, she was as seductive as The Devil

That kid from Wadeye believed in his heart
He was headed for the big screen and fortune and fame
So he jumped in a troopie on its way into town
With his hopes, his dreams and a few bucks to his name

And after a few weeks in Darwin that kid was
Arrested for standing too long in the street
And they wouldn't let him have a paper or pen
But that didn't stop him from dreaming

When you punish a person for no valid reason
Don't expect him to forgive or forget you
The Best Ever Death Metal Bond Out Of Darwin
Has a brand new villain and it is you

Hail Cate
Hail Cate Blanchett tonight
Hail Cate
Hail Carte Blanche tonight

Carte Blanche
by Lichen Throat (shadow entry)

When I was thirteen years old, we visited my grandparents in San Diego. We were only supposed to stay three days, but my dad got sick and needed emergency surgery to remove his gallbladder. While he was awaiting surgery, they sent me to my aunt’s house. She had gotten some movies to keep me occupied, and, not knowing my taste, rented many more than I could watch, and let me pick.

I had carte blanche to choose
The films that we would view.
I’d never seen James Bond,
So I put that one on.
I saw A View to a Kill
As Dad was lying ill.
Then after a short pause,
We watched Return to Oz.

My dad’s surgery got postponed until later that night because of people with more urgent problems. I called my grandmother a few times to get updates. Somehow she got the idea that I was really worried about him, even though I actually wasn’t, and she became quite indulgent for the next few days, in contrast to her usual temperament, which was notoriously irritable. I decided to exploit this as much as possible.

I had carte blanche for a week;
No need to fear critique.
Ate cookies all day long
And I could do no wrong.
I’d lounge and stay up late,
Leave veggies on my plate.
I never pressed my luck
And didn’t run amok.

We saw Dad every day
In his quiet hospital room.
He was really weak, but doing okay;
Up and down the halls I would zoom.

To give my grandparents a break, Mom and I tried to get out of the house as much as we could. We kept eating at Jack-in-the-Box, which was test marketing strange and delicious new products. We drove all around San Diego, and she showed me where she and Dad married, way out in Bonita at a chapel in the middle of a cemetery that was mostly used for funerals. It was a great week.

I had carte blanche for a week--
Nothing sad or bleak.
We shopped for shirts and shoes,
And through the streets we’d cruise
From North Park to La Jolla;
It was a time of joy:
A week without a plan,
Just sea and sun and sand.

CARTE BLANCHE
by Cavedwellers

At the end of things
There is time for one last drink
You feel the sting
Into reverie you sink
It’s a fatal play
At the end of days
Speak, and death obeys

The bitter end
Justifies most any means
You choose your friends
We have chosen the enemies
And when the moment comes
Dirty deeds get done
And the blood must run

Carte Blanche: do your will
Just as long as you kill
Or be killed, your decision
Carte Blanche: all you need
At your service, guaranteed
If you serve out the mission

Carte Blanche - Frankie Big Face

Can you hear me?
Can you see me now?
I’m just beyond the shadows of your heart
Can you feel the pain?
Can you taste it on your tongue?
The race was over
The race was over before you had begun

Running wild with blind devotion
Rags and bones and veiled emotions
Sticking to the script you wrote and
Never looking back

Criss and cross across an ocean
Constant state of locomotion
Try to keep my head afloat and
Stay on track

Tricks and turns and grand illusion
Hot pursuit and cold preclusion
Fire up the motorboat and
Get the secrets back

M is for my malocclusion
C is for my bone contusion
Q is for your pithy quote and...
I may be getting off-track

Will I ever have a say in who I am and where I go?
Carte blanche to leave it all behind and exit the show?

Bleeding hearts lack premonition
And stoke the fires of false perdition
Don your navy overcoat and
Dye your blues pitch black

Nothing trumps the stated mission
Fight like hell, maintain position
Say the pledge you learned by rote and
Hail the Union Jack

Will there ever be a time when I can say what’s mine is mine?
Carte blanche to live a life of my own design?

Can you hear me?
Can you see me now?
I’m just beyond the shadows of your heart
Can you feel the pain?
Can you taste it on your tongue?
The race was over

Can you hear me?
Can you see me now?
You're just beyond the shadows of my heart
I can feel the pain!
I can taste it on my tongue!
The race was over long before I had begun
The race was over before I had begun

Writing these lyrics, I gave myself a constraint that hopefully no one will notice unless you're looking for it:
Spoiler
Show
After various comments about the prominent /s/ sounds in some of my songs, and my variously successful or unsuccessful attempts to get them under control, I decided for this round to avoid the /s/ sound altogether. That doesn't mean avoiding the letter "S" - I use it in "shadow" and "polished" for the /ʃ/ sound or at the end of words where it's pronounced /z/, neither of which seem to have caused the same issues as the unvoiced /s/.
Carte Blanche
Micah Sommersmith

There’s a shadow at the window
There’s a footfall on the floor
There’s a creaking round the corner
There’s a tapping on the door

If you hear a noise in the night,
Don’t take fright, you’re alright till the morning
When he is finally ready for you
He won’t give you a warning

He’s coming, he is coming
He’s a hungry wolf ready for lunch
Now your name’s on the menu
And he’s been given carte blanche

He doesn’t hate you, he doesn’t know you
He doesn’t care what you’ve done
He’s been given his orders
He’s been given a gun

The perfect killing machine,
He’s been quite carefully calibrated
Gleaming, polished and clean
And you know that he’s well-lubricated

He’s coming, he is coming
He’s a hungry wolf ready for lunch
Now your name’s on the menu
And he’s been given carte blanche

Oh he's coming
He’s a hungry wolf ready for lunch
Now your name’s on the menu
And he’s been given carte blanche

Moss Palace- Carte Blanche

Verse 1:
Don’t tell me where you’ve been
The whole world’s burning
Still I forgive your sin
I watch the ice melt
As it swirls around your gin
Your hands are warm, your heart is cold again

There’s danger in your touch
I never thought that I would
Yearn for it so much
You toy with me
As if I were a crush
Always loving me and leaving in a rush

Chorus:
King of broken hearts
You never fold, you never will
In loves lethal game, I'm all in but I won’t win
Against the hand that kills

Verse 2:
I can’t wait another night
Send me the word
And I’ll keep on the light
A sign from you
To whet my appetite
If loving you is wrong, I won’t be right

Who dares stand in your way?
You’ve always had carte blanche
Served upon on a tray
And God I know
that I should never stay
Maybe I’ll have the strength to leave you someday

Chorus:
King of broken hearts
You never fold, you never will
In loves lethal game, I'm all in but I won’t win
Against the hand that kills - The hand that kills
Eeep-opp-orp-opp-opp...that means I love you!

Carte Blanche
by Max Bombast

The sun never sets on the empire that I defend
And your rules have no affect
The law's for everybody else
Because I'm above the rest
You know I dress to impress
If you take aim at my white suit there'll be red
I've got gadgets galore
A billion dollars and more
And the power to walk if you wind up dead

I have carte blanche to do whatever I want
I've got a license to kill
My badge and gun mean that you cannot stop me
And we both know that nobody will

I took an oath to serve, uphold and to protect
The world from those who oppose the authority I represent
I deserve your respect
You know I dress to distress
If you take aim at my blue suit
There'll be red
Call it willful neglect
But if you try to protest
Move when I say or you will wind up dead

I have carte blanche to do whatever I want
I've got a license to kill
My badge and gun mean that you cannot stop me
And we both know that nobody will

And everyone knows
That when the gun goes off
You tried to call my bluff
And everyone knows we've got it all
Though we still want more because
The world is not enough
The world is not enough

Carte Blanche (shadow)
miscellaneous owl

He gives me deadly kisses
Love like the bullet loves the gun
He shoots to kill without a second thought
And I know that I should probably run

God help me for craving
The chance to lick the boot
Of a sharp-dressed psychopath
In a Savile Row suit

I don't need to show a badge, he says
Cause villains get what they deserve
He smoothes the creases in his cummerbund
And I feel shaken, I feel stirred

God help me for craving
The chance to lick the boot
Of a sharp-dressed psychopath
In a Savile Row suit

He's always had carte blanche
He's always taken what he wants
And now what he wants is me
I'm afraid that all I'll be
Is fodder for his myth
Just another toxic fantasy
Black ops, red flags, and one-night stands
Cock the gun, my love, and start the dance
It ends up the same way, no matter what I say,
I give the killer what he wants

Bullets are his currency
Charm is his passport
He has autonomy
To complete his secret mission

He can choose who lives
He can choose who dies at his hands
He can lie, cheat and steal
He can choose anything he wants
He can even choose what’s real

Working outside the law
And stabbing inside the shadows
For his job, to protect the crown
He’s given complete reign over

Who he kills and who he saves
What his name is and where he is from
He can choose anything or anyone he wants
He’s given carte blanch

Yet somehow he remains the same
You'll find no solace in his kiss
Just the remnants of poison on his lips

Carte blanche
His licence to kill affords him carte blanche
Carte blanche
His licence to kill affords him carte blanche
His love hits you just
Like an avalanche
Beware of his care blanche

So dance his dance
Before you die
See oblivion
In his golden eyes
The time to kill
No time to decide
Death's spectre
Walks by his side

Carte blanche

His licence to kill affords him carte blanche

Carte Blanche
by Mandibles

Too many men have held me in their arms
Too many men have fought to win my charms
Now mister man, I’ve found you here disarmed
I’ll pick your brain, and eat your heart

I’ve shaken your world
Stirred your soul
Call me old-fashioned
I’ll swallow you whole
I’ve got the carte blanche
To do what I need
When I’m at the top
You will be
The one on your knees

So many men have tried to hold me down
So many men left littered on the ground
So if you can, try not to scream and shout
The secrets that you hold so profound

I’ve shaken your world
Stirred your soul
Call me old-fashioned
I’ll swallow you whole
I’ve got the carte blanche
To do what I need
When I’m at the top
You will be
The one on your knees

There's only one who ever lived as I
There’s only one who knows this world of mine
Now I plan to have us intertwine
And in the night he’ll find it’s do or die

I’ve shaken your world
Stirred your soul
Call me old-fashioned
I’ll swallow you whole
I’ve got the carte blanche
To do what I need
When I’m at the top
You will be
The one on your knees
