Description
A long tune i wrote that Gaylen made a mix of, then i put it all back together again.
Been a long time in the mix, so once again i am asking if all is well.
Thanks Gaylen, Reg and Billy for all your help and support.

Lyrics
i was born with a gun
tied right to my hands
and sweet whispers of prayer
they shoot right out of me
i march on like I dont even care
but at the end of the world
it's just you and just me

hey you my flaccid angel
you're going down
slow down
Hey you my vapid angel
you're going down
is there room for two
hey you my lonely angel
we fall down
we come to anger
we fall down
we fall we fall down
we fall down

rise or falling
either way Im coming
savior to the world
could I be the answer
to all the fallen

you've touched me in ways you dont know
but its all in the past
out of mind oh
now the price that I've paid
its etched into glass
I hold all of the blame
and I'm fading fast

baby we know
hard comes the answers
and maybe we know
it's never quite over

rise or falling
either way I'm coming
savior to the world
could I be the answer
to all the fallen

when i stare at the sun
through the holes in my hands
you stare right back at me
you march on like you dont even care
that i gave you the world
that i gave you everything

I love the mix. It is much more comprehensive than my cut and paste. The vocals sound better than they did on my end. The new stuff you added drums, keys and guitars all sound fantastic. Thanks for letting me in.

Guys, this is excellent. Sounds epic. It could be part of a conceptual album about ancient gods. Full of movement and unexpected turns.
The voice is awesome: powerful and expressive. I specially like the children-like back vocals.
Those synths, bass and guitar sounds surround and sound inside my head.
Love it.

What a pleasure to have met you too.
Billy has been an enormous help through out this song.
He has given me advice with the mix and given me many more new ideas
on production and mastering.

Big thanks for all your time and help man.

Seriously powerful
One of your best, Sir Steve. Love the composition. Outstandingly restrained guitar work. Very tasty. Gaylen adds his unique style and energizes the chorus with those megapipes --- cool harmonies, too. Not sure I understand the lyrics, but then again, I'm not too bright. Some of the quieter vocal phrasings remind of Tears for Fears. Love the synthambient breaks sprinkled in here and there. The outro is a nice winding down. Smooth. You guys work magic together.

Sir Reg
Tears for Fears, yeah could be, i did like their stuff.
Just love the lyrics, again it smacks of the Mindcrime time i mentioned before, i think there is a connection lyrically to me, between this and farriage. Thanks Reg the mastermind.

Dramatic
to say the least and a wonderful performance and mix..... Gaylen you are such a great performer that I can almost 'see' this song... it's like a modern Opera.... definitely should be part of a stage Rock Opera...... excellent lyrics and you sing them with the right amount of tortured feeling.... love those well timed discords in the chorus. I can't say enough about this.... it's wonderful, regards to you, bothTokai and Gaylen, regards M

Steve,
Sorry if my comment seemed more aimed at Gaylen's performance (forgive me), but believe me I do appreciate your part in this collab..... it's a wonderful piece of musical art and an excellent collab on both parts. Thought I'd set the record straight in case it came out wrong, regards M

Nice work you two.
Very interesting piece of art rock. At least that is what I would consider it. Very experimental but very cool. Elements of 80's music, Goth, Hard Rock etc. Enjoyed it.

The mix sounds pretty good(listening on headphones). It might have been nice to brighten up the EQ on the vocals during the verse. Some epic art rock.

Yeah the end, it is a bit of a rip of my favorite song of all time, that part is in DADGAD. Pt, i have been listening to a lot of their stuff at the moment maybe it is rubbing off.

Creativity explodes from this
Steve's music is a mini-rock-opera score, and Gaylen's lyrics and vocal performance just elevate this to "arts eclectica". The combination of words, singing style, and dark moody music convey brooding imagery of an apocalyptic relationship. Excellent work to all!
