Description
This is another tune Gaylen and i have put together. Spent a lot of time mixing it.
Any thoughts? Thanks once again mate for your help, here is to a few more.

Gaylen sent this with the lyrics.


ìTrinityî is my exploration into the idea of the mind, body and spirit as separate entities and how they have the same resolve. I admit to enjoying this lyric more than I should. I let myself be consumed by the language. So I will briefly summarize it for you.

In the first stanza, I explain that the mind is like the yin yang. One good half and one bad half that work symbiotically. The search for some great unfound wisdom being its inevitable demise.

In the second stanza, I try to address the fact that the body has a short life, therefore it has the objective of reaching out for experiences; some beyond itís control. Again, to an inevitable end.

In the third and final stanza, I speak of the eternal battle waged by and against the "spirit or soul". It too, although eternal, defines its end.

Lyrics

Fathers to this sinners machinations.
Oh, holy lords of my divinations.
Lo! They great slaves to grave inclinations.
First, antithesis to that wise beast.
Last, lone patron of my festering mind.
Both, prove divisive to utter demise.

Sinister skin, akin to ministry.
She regards kings of supernatural things.
Whores flesh to every sensitivity.
This mortal shell, fares well
It bends and bleeds with insatiable needs.
But this draining husk, must be the death of me.

Ah! Spirited spin of spiraling sin.
Sparkle from within, illuminant friend.
Wage wars paramount to pious purposes.
Sate the godly bidding of eons old.
My devotion, though fostered by fire
Kindles the undoing of my soul.

Mix
The bass in the track sounds kind of boomy in places. Maybe tighten it up a little, check for creepin frequencies from other tracks. I think that is about the only thing.

Many thanks for the comments, you are right about the bass i think. That will serve me right for doing the mix in the headphones.

Yeah I could
see this song breaking some back windows in some cars with boom boxes.

I think that this is one of my favorite Gaylen songs. It has some really great hooks. Crazy panning- i listened with headphones which is something I normally don't do. I'm glad that I did. It's a trip with the phones.

Outstanding backdrop by tokai.

Great stuff.

Man, the backing track is a trip. Lots of space with those tasteful little touches of guitars and synths. The bass is digging into my brain.
Gaylen singing awesome as always. The new mic makes a big difference.

That's quite a polysyllabic forest to put across in a musical format. Well done. I'm all in favor of addressing serious subjects. This is the new tokai sound then -- minimalist serious dark soundscape with a groove. It's extremely effective here. Great work.

Not sure I have permission to address Mr. West by his first name...but this is another great one. The lyrics are so very Gaylen. LOL he has almost gone totally to the darkside! Seduced by Mr. West's music...most of the time anyway.

Deep thoughts hurt my brain
Very cool. I think the mixing effort paid off. I like the panning guitar scapes. The information about the lyrics was quite nice. helped me enjoy the song more and think about stuff ya know?,I like that line"great slaves to grave inclinations" Reminded me of Hemispheres by Rush, you know , the battle of Heart and Mind and Cygnus is the bringer of balance and everything. You really got to the heart of the human condition, Everyone tries to balance their yin and yang but lots of times I just let the bad side take over. Heh Heh Heh.

My favorite lines. Rush good call, the true philosophical band, any comparison to Rush is fine by me.
