Lyrics
light of a new day
let me decorate my dreams again
and show the next step down

drawing thoughts with pumped blood
playing games of madness gods
smiling eyes behind the walls

deeper scars in every soul
long the wait lone the void
dissolution ever so close

[chorus]x2
and i can't offer to you
nothing that you don't have to lose
my pockets are full of holes

days in a new place
makes me feel i'll never fall again
i keep alive while i change

matching words as puzzle grows
feeding lies that cause the wounds
burning hate behind the doors

sadness sickness addict brain
never ending bitter rain
thanks for making me feel this way

What a fantastic time we had with this Mike!
And we could not have had better teamwork! I loved this progression the moment I heard it. Just inspired Nacho and I both to add our parts. You notice we didn't have to change the arrangement at all. We just tuned into what you wrote and did a little bit of mixing! The piece just sort of wrote itself! I am positive this is the first of many we work on together... Thanks for letting us join you on this! Love it!

You are the man! Fantastic drumming and equally fantastic production. I owe the quality of the final product to you and Nacho. You guys made this far better than I could have alone.

I am very grateful for that.

First of all, top lineup. Very strong. Compliments to the "Author music" Michael, and the guitars and synths sound terrific. Drums and mix up to the usual high Loob standard. I think the vocal performance has that Cobain feel, as others have already mentioned. A little billykirsch flavor, too. But they are distinctive. I really like the harmony bits. Finally, so nice to have a new one from the mighty finkeldink. Good to have you back. Digging those string synths.

I'm actually hearing shades of Liam Gallagher in the vocal style, with almost a sneer in the singing. Really cool song. That said, there's of course a massive grunge pull about this and it packs a punch in an almost understated way. I love the rattle of that guitar strumming at 01:23. The solo is great and I can almost imagine it on a 12 string to add an extra top layer to it, but very cool as is. Hey Freddy, is there a genre you haven't done yet?

That is one guitar I don't own yet.
I think that I'm going to have to get a 12 string eventually.
Thanks for the kind words.

That vocal is on the money! Nice grunge/metalica intonation complements the song nicely. Felt like the guitar should've been a big fatter, more metal like in places, but that's just a small criticism. Good work.

I've been trying to mix it up a bit more lately and make some music that will appeal to a broader audience. That's not too easy to do for me. I'm so used to writing for the underground- a far more select audience.

However, I will put up some annoying tracks soon as well. Don't you worry about that. Ha Ha!
