Description
This song was recorded back in 2003. The quality in production may be lacking but I think everyone can get the ideal of the song. I wanted to write something with a Floyd-esque feel to it. Hope you like it. It's better on big speakers or headphones. Still very hot, tried to calm it down but this was the best I could get it. Lost the original file.

Lyrics
Pathetic and Poetic

It’s pathetic and poetic
My heart is the machine
That drives for love
To no end

Sympathy, apathy, what do you get from me
Pain and the passion
There’s no frame for this kind of action

Berate me, then hate me
You love me then loath me
It’s all been the same to me
At the end

Take me, don’t break me
Forsake me, don’t rape
Oh why don’t you just
Let me be

You kick me, you bite me, we fight
Maybe we should just try to turn off the machine

The machine drives (repeat)

Why you don’t you let me be
Why won’t you set me free?
If not just out of sympathy

My heart is just the machine
That drives me to the extreme
And there is no end again


The machine drives (repeat)

Nice one Anthony. it shines when it kicks and gets heavy, love your vocal projection during that section. You definetly captured that floyd feeling in my opinion.

Hey
I thought I had poetic pathetic down. But, there you go, coming out like gangbusters! You are like a force of nature, Anthony. You should give this one another shot to clean up the buzz. It would be worth it. :)

I love the heavy Floyd vibe. But I do agree with char. Back down a few levels, maybe some compression on the master track. The clipping gets in the way of what is otherwise and excellent post.

I'm a dumb ass
Had I read the description more carefully I would have realized the reason you haven't already remixed this was because the original file is missing. Sorry man! And I agree it is worth sharing in spite of those minor technical issues.

Yeh, I definitely want to redo this one and many others I have. Most of my old track files were lost when my old computer crashed. I lost most of the files to my old songs but because I have them on CD's I have been able to keep them all. I want to post all my old recordings and get feedback and try to do them better. Thanks for commenting, your a very talented musician and your comments are always appreciated and wanted. Thanks again.

Like the passion in the vocals, a number of elements here are very reminiscent of Floyd. I'd say you hit the target squarely. Enjoyed despite the production problems, hope find the file.

Thanks Dave, always a pleasure to hear from you. I want to redo it so I can get a cleaner sound but I wanted to hear what everyone thought about it, whether it was worth redoing. Thanks again Dave.

word
personally, I like bass guitars hot. This sounds pretty cool. Digital clip distortion ftw. Even with the flattening, you're still getting a weird kind of clippy punch on the drum hits. It's positively delectable, and way better than Pink Floyd. Maybe I'm just saying that because I'm bored with them, I dunno. Regardless, this is a definite fave!

I want to redo this song with better clarity. One day. I think it's reminiscence of early Floyd. Roger has gone to new levels that I don't appreciate as much as their earlier work. Still love'em though. Thanks for listening and commenting.

Yes, it was one of my first recordings so I wasn't very knowledgeable about sound levels and was always in a hurry to get a song done. I am still learning. Thanks for the comment. I appreciate you listening.
