Two Roads

Description
Song I wrote, about 2 years ago that I've revised over and over again, both arrangement and lyrics.
Because its so lengthy and the arrangement changes so rapid, I always thought I'd never do anything with it.
But after a quick rewrite, the lyrics began meaning more and more to me.
The concept of Two Roads I've always been fascinated with ever since I was younger.
This is totally inspired by Two Roads Diverged in a Yellow Wood, by american poet, robert frost.
The lyrics are odd,
the verses are about me coping with the lost of a dear dear friend (and lover)
Hooks kinda vaguely describe what happen, how everything was a matter of circumstance.
The final verse which I call the epitaph,
is about madness... mines... and how after a lost like I experienced I was chasing destruction
IE ruins of rome etc...
...

The Mix is a work in progress,
I pretty much just loaded everything with reverb, especially the guitars. so they sound one, not sure if I dig it yet.
the vox, is kinda off and needs to be comped out a bit, and new lyrics added etc

Features all of my band mates, so its officially a "Stolen Morning" song

P.S. hasn't been compressed, so might be off in the mp3 corvergence...

Lyrics
Two Roads

Verse 1
Awakened Early by the wreckage underneath
Sunken shipwreck comes to carry me home
Drifting Slowly, In a pool of memories
Mercury falling while the angels follow along
Mercury falling while the angels follow along

Hook
two hearts lying in limbo
between the darkness and the liight
pull the strings and a symphony rises
above the dying of the night
your chasing fairy tales
and I'm chasing lies
search through the silence
can't you see whats inside by these two roads?

Verse 2
Staring blindly at the photo beside my tea
I drink the blushing red but my eyes go rushing blue
Dreaming wildly , Still I stare at the moon
the spillage of voices here runneth over now for you
the spillage of voices here runneth over now for you

(Hook) 2
Two hearts lying in limbo
between the darkness and the light
pull the strings and a symphony rises
above the pyres of the night
The taste of sick surrounds us
No redemption for these crimes
Two roads that were blurry
Have awakened just in time

Bridge
Which way to turn to escape this formal feeling?
I'll search through the silence just to find my healing
Cause all you needed was time
But time to give was not mine
And time went by
In time all i did was cry

Epitaph
As i dive into the ocean
at the bottom of this dream
I explore my wreckage of suffering
kiss the boot heels of the ruins of rome
To mend and steal one single soul
On your door step lies my diamond cutting heart
wrapped in flesh yet frozen to the touch
Just there dancing like a marionette
that's never healed from your morning theft
your the first of the fallen still I'm calling for your curse
Heaven deny me don't satisfy me with your verse
Because I will climb these two roads...
Yes I will climb these two roads...
we will collide these two roads...
We will collide
and become one....
because you are me
And I am you...
Yes I am you

Well made
I think if you do any changes with the mix you should do very little. I do think it may be a good idea to put some of the reverb out. All and all a great song with very intense lyrics.

Classic
This caught my attention from the off and kept me engaged all the way through. Really moody and sung with great emotion. Would have gone straight to my ipod if I could have downloaded it!! best I've heard today. Cheers Mark

How did I miss this!!!
Wonderful chord progression, with a feeling of flying.
Outstanding vocals, cutting back on the reverb will allow us to hear your fabulous vocal better.
Obviously a student of music, with the way to song is but together.
Wonderful lyrics . . .
