Lyrics
Reflections in Water Falls down
a cloud of smoke that covers sights and sounds
a torn up picture cutting my hand now
I wanna see you, i wanna feel you, i wanna be you...

The Wind is Rising (x3)
I see the rain fall down outside

Blackened decoration round your eyes
but i can see through your disguise
torn and twisted in my minds eye...

The wind is rising (3x)
i see the rain fall down outside

no more questions without answers....
no more people without laughter
no more water without drowning
drowning
drowning
drowning

i dont want this life.

Clear waters
The slower first section is fabulous. Your voice is light, vulnerable, soulful, mainstream pop in all the accessible and right ways. It is like a long recitative of intimate thought. Clean, controlled, clear, honest. The transition section when the "guitar" enters is perhaps too MIDI and would benefit from someone playing real guitar - or a replacement of the guitar sound with sounds that remain authentic (retro synths/keys perhaps). The distortion guitar solo section that follows, in my ears, is less successful, mainly becuz it is too controlled and sanitized, which is not usually an attribute of distortion guitar solos, making it less authentic. Yet, becuz of the theme of the song, conceptually it all works (a rising tide of surface image that overtakes the real self-core). Your return to the opening ambience is great, a perfect ending. Really nice track.

You have a great voice, man
Really nice vocals. - nice.

I love the melody with the prose, especially tasty at the start and the end.

tune, Obbster... your best vocal tune so far...
I like the guitar ideas, try to eventually change the midi parts for real guitar....
Love the overall feel of the song.... well done.

I like your voice
Yes. I like your voice but the melody is tired and... I'm sorry - fucking boring. Aw the best anyway.

The words deserve focus. Thank you.
