the doorgunner's song (by the hamlet machines)

Description
At some point we tried dabbling with electronic sounds. The opening sound on this one immediately triggered the topic and the lyrics where written in five minutes (its shows a bit). Could be better sung, I guess.

Lyrics
Peace and love sign on my helmet
Wearing rounds and rounds of bullets
Shooting blind through the jungle
I do no count the ones I kill

I ‘m flying over vietnam
flying away from home
On a cloud of napalm
Further away from home

I’m the doorgunner
I feel the monsoon air
On my thousand yard stare
For ever and ever

I picture you as you lay there
Hit by friendly fire
Looking up through the shattered green
Your limbs so full of gangrene

Great sounds
Nice guitar (and other!) sounds. I like the guitar twinning the vocal. Could be better sung? Maybe. But I think you can always think that. To me, the vocal is effective, but could be a little more up in the mix. Nice work. Peace.

vocals
I think your voice sounds its most natural (pretty), and agree that I would like to hear it more in the mix. Reminds me of *Apocalypse Now* - that helicopter/gun shooting sound. And that guitar that twangs around your vocals makes the point where the friendly fire comes in sound like a beautiful sadness. And oh, the sad voice and sad sounds mix with the cruel helicopter/gun electronics.....such is war. Song has some emotional power.

the end
Indeed, I had the beginning of "Apocalypse now" in mind. I'm glad you found this emotional, because it's rather a string of clichés, until the change of perspective and "shattered green" image which is a bit more concrete.

Electronics
Very effective use of these electronic sounds. As estellie said, it makes a helicopter sound that adds to the imagery of your lyrics. I too find it a very sad and beautiful song.

imagery
it came from the sounds indeed. When Brentfod sent me this, I don't know what he had in mind, but I was "there" in five seconds,and could almost feel the stifling breeze on my sweaty face. I hope the song somehow conveys a little bit of this sensation.
