Lyrics
Wake up.

your life are no longer what it used to be (about)
remember the apple, and all forgotten dreams
and all the books, and new countries to read (about)
so many burned letters that none ever wanted to read
wake up just a little
nobody wants to find a dead bird in a fish tank
nobody wants to feel anymore
nothing is what once was or meant to be
that's how it is, and has always been
no need to look so deep into that old white room
filled with old paintings, all mirrors of you
wake up just a little
wake up….
nobody wants to find a dead bird in a fish tank
wake up just a little
wake up.

Sounds like you've been,
getting in touch with the inner self Mikki, and I like what you found there.

I like the theme, "Wake up!". More people need to wake up to being alive and vibrant. Life is so worth living and investing in.

Nice track man. great message and feeling. Like the little change up at about 3":30

reminds me of John Lennon
this reminds me a lot of solo John Lennon, though it's a lot more groovy and in some ways dissonant and actually very different. The ending is really very odd. Very cool! Are the backing vocals all you with some effects added? Whether or not they are, it's really well done.
And I certainly don't want to find a dead bird in my fish tank! Yipes!

Classy pop
just a little off centre :)
Love the initial harmonies (was Yoko free?), and the way you play with sounds. As usual, a really interesting post that doesn't really fit the way I think music. Nicely recorded too.

this morning, I begin my day by listening to your song. I like what you have made here, it's very nicely done and you have a very original style.

This song has a much happier
vibe than a lot of your stuff. Love the dissidence when you say "Fish Tank" between the piano and vocal harmonies. This song actually takes a detour toward Bob Dylan sound. Very Cool.

wake up
good advice indeed.
I really like the kind of psychedelic/soulful vibe.
songwriting, production, and performance are all right on.
agree with the others that the backing vocals really make it special.
good one!!!

remember the apples
sage advice dude. love the airy backing vox in the verse and the dylan phrasing followed by the simple minds type of arena chorus (although sung quietly, a cool contradiction). this tune really is like a really quiet arena burner, reminds me a bit of bjork in that way.

My absolute fave EVER by you Mikky (So far...lol)
This is not just good...It is subtily brilliant. The lyrics, the sound-bed, the vox, the harmonies...Everything herein works to these jaded old ears.

Enjoyed just a tad more than the law allows. Go figure!

Be well friend!

Thank you all
For listening and commenting. I am unfortunately a very busy man these days, and can not seem to find time enough to comment back on each one of you individually. However, all your thoughts and words are worth gold in my temple. Thank you very, very much, and, walk in peace.
