"An epic tale about a man."

PS: This track actually has a meaning.

[LYRICS]

Once upon the time
before the time even existed
there was a man,
who was not a man,
with ears
bigger than, well, everything.

Inside his left ear
lived a tiny blue creature
(named Carl, btw)
that just couldn't stop talking
into the ear.

But one day
the man,
who was not a man,
got tired of the creature
and threw it away
straight past the horizon.

From that day on
everything was silent
and because of this
the ears shrunk and shrunk
until they almost vanished.

...

However,
as the ears shrunk
so did the rest of the man
and soon he found himself
sitting all alone
in the middle of nowhere.

The Little Man

I love this song! The story actually has a meaning that I understand (or at least I think I understand it) and the accompanying music is positively unique. I love the crazy effects you put on the voice, not only because they sound sweet but because I can still understand what he's saying.

Very interesting song, not something you hear every day. I like the moral of the story as well :D Work good the up keep!

ReFreezed responds:

Well I definitively think the voice turned out much better here than the last time I used my own voice for lyrics. (Thinking of "The escape"...) Glad you enjoyed it. :)

As for the story, it's somewhat related to humans and that if we stop listening and learning from the environment then we'll become both less intelligent and more deaf/ignorant, thus making it harder to begin listening again the day we realize what has happened, and by then it might already be too late. (Longest sentence ever?)

Actually, I didn't come up with this until after the song was finished. lol

Review the for you thank! :D
