Lyrics
On the road to deliverance
I don't have time for the sublime
We're all born with a death sentance
So please don't waste my time

On the road to elation
What is the point of "Why"
Stripped down to the essentials
Leaves only You and I

So I want Your love, my baby
I want Your love

On the road to infinity
Devoured by the sun
Grand things turn insignificant
All that was said and done

On the road to elation
What is the point of "Why"
Stripped down to the essentials
Leaves only You and I


So I want Your love, my baby
I want Your love

Like it lots!
What timing are you using - 6/8? Sounds jazzy in places. Like a clean Tom Waites meets R.E.M.

Unusual and it works.

Thanks for posting this.

Thanks for Your kind comment. Well I don't really know, thought it was 4/4...:-) I'm not really a musician. Just felt it swinging... Thanks again for Your comment, much appreciated.

stark
it is memorable and uniquely catchy. the drums, guitar, and singing are distinct and sharp. the lyric is powerful. but it is not direct. the drum rhythm is unusual and retains interest. it is well crafted music. 0x0

Not sure what You mean by the lyrics not being direct, is that good or bad? Thanks for commenting, much appreciated!

clarification
"On the road to infinity

it is not obvious or direct. it is poetic. it is good. direct lyrics are often uninspired. much thought went into the wordcrafting. 0x0

This epitomises the genre to me
I was wondering what "Pop (Alternative)" was going to sound like ;) This is just so off-beat (in the "unusual" sense rather than the rhythm sense, although the rhythms are also "off-beat" in a very good way). Lots of aspects are just that little different from what you'd expect: the drums ; the bass runs; the lead guitar; your harmonies and main vocal.
This really is a good little song - I'm impressed.
Cheers,
Neil

Thanks!
Well, I always find it hard to choose genre. Would You have chosen another for this song? Hard to believe I'm really a metal-head, right? Thanks for Your input, much appreciated!

unusual ..
.. in the good sense. No fear composing here, great
ideas: particularily like that very tricky (and adventurous/passionate) vocal line that goes from up high to down low-very passionate and a hook too, gave me a twinge of "Atomic Swing", also similarities with English pronounciation to him too and I like that ..
adds character. Good lyrics, I particularily like the
"we're all born with a death sentence, so please don't waste my time" line. Crisp guitars and nice little
groove. The vocals are perhaps a little over-effected, creating a kinda Chris Isaak feel throughout, combined with the low vocal verse and 'high' chorus and general tempo. Glad to hear you again, don't worry about the
6 months lead-time my friend.

Thanks!
Yes the vocals have a heavy 50's sound to them. I wanted to create a "spacey" sound, there are even some synthesizers floating around in the background.
Thanks for Your input. As always very much appreciated.

nice
the lyrics and the vocals are great... The song is very nice... Love the chorus vocals... Well done... Maybe the bassline is a bit to loud...

Well I'm conastantly having trouble with the bass. Since I usually work with headphones It's hard to get the volumes right.
Thanks for the input!

agree
Nice bass sound..But I thought the bass could come up a bit
Great production otherwise. I agree with the Tom Waites meets R.E.M.
comment. very nice job on the Vocals. Maybe a little roxy music mixed in there also. Great job!!

Roxy
Roxy music is of course one of my favourite bands. Didn't realize that it would show, though, but I'm not dissatisfied with that comparison ;-) Thanks for Your kind input,

Cool song
I immediately dug that cool syncopated beat, and the melodies are perfect in their simplicity. I especially like the way you're singing the choruses.

Chorus
Thanks for the input. I seldom have much time to work on my melodies but sometimes i seem to ge it to work anyhow. I kind of like it myself (can You say that in public ;-)?
