This song is not in a battle


I'm not even sure what the lyrics to this song mean. It was extremely difficult to make, because my CPU was having trouble with all the layered samples and effects, so the mixing has suffered.

Lyrics:
These days I feel alive
I feel better than ever in my life
And these notions that oceans
Can keep me away
Seem ludicrous, ridiculous
And insane
These days I feel in love
These explosions are in motion
Blowing me away
Yet I feel better than ever in my life
And It wonít last long

I canít contain myself now
I canít explain myself now
Was it all just for this now?
Is there anything for me to miss now?
I canít contain myself now.
I canít explain myself now
Itís feeling done
I feel that Iíve won

I never thought Itíd be this way
I feel addicted, remitted to better days
I feel so crazy, not lazy
And so much in tune
I feel fantastic, so spastic
Like a silvered spoon

And I guess that Iíve got no reason to brag
ĎCause Iíve had more things than anything else ever had
Used to care for, not dare for, a better life
Something greater, and superior
To what I had before

I canít contain myself now
I canít explain myself now
Was it all just for this now?
Is there anything for me to miss now?
I canít contain myself now.
I canít explain myself now
Itís feeling done
I feel that Iíve won
These days I feel alive
I feel better than ever in my life
And these notions that oceans
Can keep me away
Seem ludicrous, ridiculous
And insane
These days I feel in love
These explosions are in motion
Blowing me away
Yet I feel better than ever in my life
And It wonít last long

nice vocal effects, full and warm sound, too bad the base drum isn't audible
i know about cpu's getting troubles, so i make a mix of some parts which i record on one track with all efects etc. so that gives room to new tracks and effects
nice song btw, could use a break somehow somewhere imo

I agree the vocal sounds  lava like & I like .This is a really cool song mtv clipable:)
Sub mix may be the next step,bounce groups in solo so not to push cpu then open new mix and import those mixes to fresh slate.
If you run virtual instruments they very harrahetta hungry.You probably hip to that anyways.
Excellent

Neat song - the lyrical content doesn't have to mean anything. Great thing about songs is that it means something to everyone, and something different too.

To me, this song is about a person who is happy to be happy, because he doesn't know how long it'll last. Great philosophy, to really allow one to feel at peace.

I think the song can be touched up somewheres. I know this is probably a first draft as I am about to post mine for commenting, but thought I'd put in my 2 cents. 

1. "Can keep me away" - you omitted the word keep - which I think would fit real well into the song. Probably just omitted when sining, I make the same mistakes . Just in case you meant it - I feel the 'can' really shows that the character depicted can go above and beyond any obstacle.
2. "Silvered spoon" - the word silver could be smoother, it felt rushed in terms of tempo.

Overall - it's a great song. I love the rhythmic rhymes, one of my fav techniques .

Please do keep polishing this song - it's just fantastic! (not spastic?)

Disclaimer: I always feel bad critiquing other's work because it's not my work, and we all have different styles. All my comments are strictly constructive - the song is great the way it is :.

This is probably the best vocal performance I've heard from you, well done!!

I like the chorus, it's quite catchy.

The vocal really makes the song, perhaps you dont need so much music and effects backing you, it may take less strain on your PC too.

re: Fantastic
hey this is great............I listen in amp 5+ times

vocs well at the front of the mix .............. a real lesson for others listening........
voice over guitar

fantastic wide sound.....but could be wider using panning

as it is so trippy perhaps the vocals could 'move around' in the panning?

Tecky mix stuff....

the top end of the mix sounds pushed in

top end missing to a degree

the cymbal sounds are reduced/compressed to a tick no clash----ride

song sounds like its driving down the middle of the  road????

all centered

play with eq and panning next

enuff

LOVE THIS TRACK

Great track with limited issues.Drums a bit buried and many guitar layers spread out with many clashing frequencies.On the good side this is quite an awesome song with some real good ideas.I really enjoy you writing ability!!Keep them coming!
