Sad songs they say... This one has a little touch of my 8 year old singing on part. Brief but meaningful.

Lyrics
Im growing tired of talking to these walls
and so I call out and so I cry out
to the night
I gave you my heart I gave you my heart
you gave me doubt
and so I call out and so I cry out
to the night
why
Im sitting here picking paint peeling a hole
and all I ever wanted was a home
Ive got no heart Ive got no soul left to give
there are no words there are no words left to me
no I wont back down no I wont back down
Im digging down Im digging deep
down in the dirt
you know your words
not sticks and stones
you know they can hurt
there aint no running back to me
turn it around turn it around
turn your life around
a simple word one silly word
Ive got to be heard
and so I call out and so I cry out
into the night
why

I'm enjoying the drums here and the spacey synths. I'm missing the lyrics though, can't really tell what it's about. Interesting soundscape though.

wow, bleak
but good,nice tone to the vocals and the ambient synth backing work well...only crit..I
don't know if the drums are progged or real but a little variation now and then ..like maybe just a couple of fills or rolls here and there where appropriate.....or even filled rolls,yum..doh why do I always let myself down....Good song Gaylen, cheers, Jarvoid

Yes, get
the family involved. Wonderful singing. No, not too dark. More like a plea for understanding and closure. Nice one, very nice. Thanks.

gaylen. your stuff is so unique...challenging because of it. your voice is especially plaintive on this one...almost desperate. i loved the downtempo feel and the hypnotic bass and percussion. excellent space at 1.20. for some reason i had flashes of 'the reflex' duran duran. influence? great end. boom. at 3.25 you get away (just) with it being without any left turns.

yes
Thanks and duranx2 is a fav. It was hard "as always" not to go nuts changing keys and direction. I have been trying to truly understand singularity and the drone. I put as much into as little I can to see what comes.

Why?
Yet another really cool track! Synths, percussion, vocals all great, as I've come to expect. I'm probably the last person that should suggest this, as I seem to always mix my vocals way too high, but I think the vox should come significantly back in the mix; paradoxically, I suspect they'd have more impact that way.

Vocal harmonies/tones around 3:00 are really cool; almost sounds like saxophones!

You realy listen and that is a great compliment. Yes this tracks vocals are loud and it may swallow the mood. Ill check it out.

i really like the free-flowing way you lay down vocals, and those "why"s are definitely "cried out", everything fits together really well in this song, awesome!

Holy originality
Enjoy the heck out of this one. The sound is so original and that's one of the best compliments you can get.

Excellent vocals too.

Another ethereal
cool track. Sounds like the track is clipping (a high pitched glitchy sound) on the drum hits, esp on the right speaker FYI. I think the vocals down a tad is a good suggestion. Your vocals are very creatively written and well sung as always. Like the medley part at 3:00 a lot. Nice work on this one!
