Description
A song about the daily f-ing way of living, where we so easily forget about life, fun, and dreams. I play all instruments except the drums as usual. I put some extra time into the mixing of this one, kind of needed it. Let me know what you think. Thanks.

Lyrics
[ burn ]

i look at you
i look at you and I see
i look at you
i look at you and I'm blind
i look at you
i look at you and i see
i look at you
i look at you and i feel

let's burn the ground
let's find the sound
let's play again
let's burn the ground before we go insane

i look at you
i look at you and i dream
i look at you
i know how you feel
i look at you
you wanna be free
i look at you
now you look at me

Blast from the 80's
Great track, strong retro feel to it (early Brian eno-sh?). Lots
of energy.

wow...yeah, Eno-ish
Another great track from Mikki! You've got a distinct sound and tend to put things together really well. I liked this one a lot as it's got a relentless chugging that is quite addictive. I thought the break broke it up nicely, but I was thinking some sort of intense buzzsaw guitar soloing over the last round of choruses would have pushed it up to another level. The ending pretty cool.

Top stuff...
Excellent post punky kind of feel. This has a great energy
to it. Nice guitar sounds. Great use of the drum track. My
only suggestion is that the energy might feel slighly more
intense if you shortened it a little; I'm not sure it needs
the piece immediately before the end where you do the
call-and-response type vocals.

Thanks
Your comments are very much appreciated as always. Brain
Eno, uh? :) Yes, perhaps shorten it some is a good idea,
thank for the tips! Perhaps also adding a guitar solo at the
end, hm... Very good ideas...

Good Sound
This is sweetly reminiscent of early Brian Eno pop and
some of his early productions (like the early Talking
Heads). Very well performed and excellent production. Oh
... and as I listen here comes the warm ... U2 guitar sound.

Excellent
Very lively and compulsive, and all the instruments
go together really well. I love that bass sound. You do
have a distinctive style going here ... this is really
good stuff.

Very catchy energy. Me likey. Having Talking Heads and Eno
mentioned earlier I can hear it too. Overall your music style
is very unique but it does have similar personality to Eno and
David Byrn. It's your own sound, and it is great. The simple
lyrics on this song work alright, though I think they could be
better, more thought out.

Definitely has a retro sound
Love the sound and the new wave pop feel of the tune.

Thanks to all of you
Eno, Talking Heads and U2, that's great things to
mentioned together with... I've honestly never been
listening to TH, or Eno (other than something he did
produce, perhaps what you mean, uh).... I am just trying
my best to "find a sound" and the sound happens to be
very different between the songs, or in different periods of
my creativity. To me it has more and more become very
important not to be afraid of styles, but rather try to do
music that comes directly from within me. Tell a story.
Communicate a feeling.
The lyric where done in this simplistic way because I kind
liked doing that with this song. I am still unsure about
whether they holds up or not. I like to explore simplicity
and lmost end up being naive at times. It's an interesting
game! :)

Thank you all for listenting!

very good
i am especially impressed with how you put all various
aspects of this song together ... pieces of puzzle FIT! ...
panning of sounds is very pleasing, drums in particular ...
minimalist lyrics seem more detailed than they are on
page because you sing them well ... last part of song
seems just slightly long ... but this is small gnat ... this
also reminds me of my father's old The Kinks records! ...

Thanks
That's kind of where I was heading with the lyrics, to make
them very simple (of course every word is still very much
chosen), but to let the music bring them up as well as my
voices. Kink's awesome! My dad used to listen to them as
well...
