Island

This song is not in a battle


Island is the German name for Iceland... and Island in English has another meaning... but I think the title fits no matter how you twist it.

This is a place for an empty space
so wipe away the tears from your face
to save your wandering through the haze
This is a place for an empty space

I don't care what the others say
I won't fold my hands to pray
you may cry when I'm far away
I don't care what the others say

On steaming ground is where you go
liquid soil down below
walking on air
under a burning sky
five friends
for a life

It's in your soul the cry for hope
psychotropics in a snowstorm globe
where dragon and spirits spread their lopes
It's in your soul the cry for hope

Choosing you wasn't sane
but who am I to blame?
solitude is not a shame
Choosing you isn't sane

On steaming ground is where you go
liquid soil down below
walking on air
under a burning sky
five friends
for a life

Your guitar playing is very nice and melodic...Your vox need a bit of work...don't try to hide so much behind the effects..

I really like your lyrics...but I am left wondering what is a "lope" ?("where dragon and spirits spread their lopes")  Dictionary says : long-striding gait: a relaxed and easy gait with long stride    -    hmmm...not sure if that's what you're going for.

Good work Amused

Well, I definately think your production value is improving in huge leaps.. I like what you did to the vox, I think the vibrato/tremolo effect is well chosen. This is almost a happy tune... Not your usual style... But very well done...

Lyrics are very good too... They tell a real story... Not sure about the lopes indeed, but hey what gives... It's a great feeling in this tune...

Good Work Yeah!

Not so keen on this one, mainly because of the style though.

It's recorded well, and the playing's pretty good, although the guitar sound is a little unmelodious to my ears (both the more gentle acoustic type, and the distorted guitar)- it sounds a bit out of tune too.

Vocals suit the song's mood - they're actually pretty good really.
The synth bass is a good sound, and fills the track out nicely when it comes in.
