Little Strings

This song is not in a battle


I wanted to go for something simple and loud this time. I like the chorus more than the verse. I couldn't figure out what to do with that kind of chord structure.

Lyrics:
We are so blind to the little strings which tie our brains
No shame
We take these drugs to swallow down and drown our pains
No blame

I don't accept you I don't respect you
I overlooked you I mistook you
and rationalize it and compromise it
and make myself feel tall and you feel small
I think I'm better And I must sever
All my commitments To the system
Dont' understand you I can't stand you
I only look out for my own  leave you alone

I'm sick of giving to the living Self contradiction is my mission
Don't recognize my mistaken lies  I keep it all for my own; leave it alone
You can't take it you can't erase it my disillusion, my confusion
I shout loudly, I bleat proudly If I am ugly enough, then they'll think I'm tough

Great intro... waiting for the vocals to start.
Still waiting!
Ok, I want them now... and here they are! lol
A bit quiet in the mix, but ok.
This is good stuff - is there a break in the song?  Nothing yet at 1:55
Just noticed that the vocal are louder at 2:20 ish... deliberate, or accidental?
No instrumental break.. can't decide if I wanted one in there.  I think so, towards the end - keyboard not guitar.

Overall though, well performed - good dynamics
Enjoyable listen.
Cheers

Oh no, I had muted the first chorus to tweak the guitar sounds there, and then forgot to unmute it before rendering to MP3.

I agree I should have put an instrumental in there somewhere.
