Description
Song about loneliness due to circumstance also about being the last survivor on earth after a massive disaster...I got the idea from an episode of the original twilight zone.

Sounded the best on my AKG cans...might wanna try headphone for best listening experience>?

Hope you enjoy!

Lyrics
VERSE 1

Everyone has gone away
Happiness is laced with pain
I feel like I'm in a sea of faces, but no ones really there
I'm living in torment, locked in a cell
Please god help me, I'm living in hell
Alone in this world, Alone in this life
Alone with myself, The last one to die

CHORUS
How would you feel if you
Were the last one alive?
All of your friends are dead too
No one to tell good bye
Alone as a Lone man can be
You're the last one to die

VERSE 2

The world lies in Ruin, set ablaze
A smoking, lifeless mess
I walk the streets, hungry, in a DaaaaaaaaaZE

I'm stuck in limbo
I'm wasting away
Got No sainted angel
And No time to pray
Hung out to dry
They left me to die
Alone in this shell
I am lost in their eyes


C H O R U S

VERSE 3

Hopelessness Envel-O-ping
I need this all to end
I cursed them all away but now I'm stuck without a friend
Alone in this world
Conviction is shame!
Alone in this world
with no one to blame
Alone as I lived
I'm a ghost in this life
A tormented shadow
The last one to die

end

Cool concept. I'd be driving me some Ferraris!
Tight playing, nice guitar tone. Lead break sounds good, but it's a little low in the mix.
Vocals are strong.

Nice work
Nice work CH. Like the idea behind the song. Like the guitar tone and the riffing as well. Your vocal work suits this musical style. Agree with Dave that the lead break needed to scream out of the mix a bit more. Take care, Peter.

I am glad you liked the vocals, its honestly the hardest part for me, but I think this one turned out pretty well.

Great mix. Love the stereo delay on the guitars, fills the space well. The cymbals might be a little bright and the vocal a little muddy. Most guitar players, me included I might add, tend to mix the guitars hot and the vocal low. I always have to remind myself to bump 'em up. A/B-ing the mix to some of my fav pro production CD's is always a wake-up call. All in all cool song. I think I know the episode you're talking about in the lyrics-- is it the "broken glasses" one with the librarian?

Thanks RR
Yeah, I always feel like the guitar isn't present enough so I jack it way the **** up, lmao. I struggle getting my levels right, but learning more everyday. Thanks a million for the input, it means a lot. Yeah, thats the episode. I get really strong feelings from episodes of old TV shows...its almost nostalgic for me, even though I wasn't even a twinkle in my fathers eye when they were aired, who knows....but it inspires me to write music so thats a plus.

Hmm
That was a really good lead into the song. Well organized and the instrumentation is spaced out just right.

Im wearing my Sony MDR-V700
sounds very cool on my headphone, I like the phrasing in your singing, to be honest I wouldnt mind being the last one alive but unlike the twilight zone episode I would have an extra pair of glasses. BTW the leading is tops, your a great guitar player!
