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.

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.

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.
