Lyrics
Fears, confusion, frustration, holding me down.
Doubt, illustions, my convictions, hitting the ground.
My tears, are burning me, the pain, is too much to bear.
In here, walls are crushing me, break the dreams in my head.

I can't Breathe, when you're here, constantly.
I can't speak, any words, honestly.
Why should my life be just like your life, I've got my own ambitions.
I can't breathe.

I wake, with this feeling, suffocation, air is so thin.
Keep, my emotions, my comforts, locked in a tin.
My ears, hear your reassurance, my eyes, see whats within.
I reach, for the bars that hold me, will my strength, make them bend.

Builds to flames
Thanks for posting I really enjoyed this tune. The emotional outpouring is honest and clean. Put some ideas into things and we are there.
The dry house sound here might be better with some reverb? Just a touch on the vocals.
The guitar was refreshing. Great job all the way around.

Thanks
Appreciate your kind comments. There is reverb and delay on the vocals, but just subtle. I don't like too much. But it is probably down to preference.

I was very happy with the guitar sounds here, and my vocals. My bets production so far I think.

Atmospheric opening drew me in, Adam. Perhaps the guitar/vocal balance needs to tilt more in favour of the vocal at the start? When you come in full bore vocally things seem to even out a bit. Powerful, emotional song. I like the dynamics of the arrangement and the guitar work. Drums sound good, too. Fine post. Thanks, Peter.

Thanks
Appreciate the comments. Glad you like the drums too, they are a midi track, I struggle with drums sometimes and this took a few attempts to get right.

Breathe
An effective straight ahead treatment of an uncomfortable theme. It comes off as honest (as Daug says) and heartfelt. Guitars sound good, and the dynamics work well. Fine.
