Spectrals - 'Karaoke'

Gone so soon - this is Spectrals' epitaph

I'd always assumed the line "I don't think I was really cut out for this" was one of those things musicians say but don't mean, like "I am the eggman". Turns out he was sincere and this melancholic number is Spectrals' actual epitaph. Whatever his reasons – and however divisive the second album was – it feels a bit soon.
