Dead Waiting is a rock/metal tune that uses real drum kit sounds and guitar synths. The song starts off slow and speeds up as time progresses. It would be great to use for a dark game or video where the focus is surely something dreary. The word "waiting" is used because it does give the sense that something ominous is near, and that something must be done. The intensity of the song changes back and fourth, allowing for a theme to show both climax and suspense.
