Description
I am back again! Here is a song I wrote about lost love and video games...or something like that. I got my hands on slightly better equipment this time around so the sound quality should be improved...although I am a bit unsure about the mix so let me know. I am proud of this, I hope you like!

Lyrics
My ears and eyes are burning,
I don’t know what to say.
There’s a giraffe on the boulevard,
coming into west LA.
The Laundromat is on fire,
and my clothes are wet.
Playing Pacman at the liquor store,
sucking candy cigarettes.
She chewed rainbow flavoured gum,
bite my tongue.
Let’s walk along the scattered roads,
talk about when we were young.
Despite my supposed expertise,
and my philosophy degrees,
I haven’t learned enough to see
through the hypocrisy.
Oh oh oh oh
Was it better then?
Oh oh oh oh
Can we breathe again?
The fire siren is swimming
in a traffic jam,
and the light bouncing off the glass
looks like Disneyland.
The machine is flashing
electronic fruit.
And her eyes like space
so far above it’s beyond compute.
She chewed rainbow flavoured gum,
bite my tongue.
Let’s walk along the scattered roads,
talk about when we were young.
Despite my supposed expertise,
and my philosophy degrees,
I've never been in love before
what a strange democracy.
Oh oh oh oh
Whas it better then?
Oh oh oh oh
Can we breathe again?
Oh oh oh oh oh
We were younger then.
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh.

I like the electronic sounds you use this song. Sounds good with the bassline and your awesome harmonies.

There are some parts that I wish there wasn't so much reverb on your voice. It works well in the chorus parts, giving it that sound I think you're trying for, but some parts it sounds a little too far away.

I like what you're doing.

Cool
great synth sounds, songwriting. Very very cool.
agree the vocal treatment could be improved. it's a bit loud in parts, and reverby.
really enjoyed the song though!

excellent
great track, lyrics, harmonies and I too am loving that synth. i agree about the reverb, but that's nitpicking. this is just an awesome song. it's like the Kinks jamming with Black Moth Super Rainbow. very cool.
