A song about a man who - overwhelmed with feelings of abandonment - has become nothing more than a leech to those around him. Lacking any energy to do anything for himself, he has used the last of the good will he had with the people he knew, letting himself fall apart under their care until he started to cause their lives to fall apart, and they no longer cared.

Note: please excuse the typo in the title. It is, of course, supposed to be "carry" but i was a bit drained when i posted this and i can't figure out how to change it

Lyrics:

I tired to carry you home
But you struggled until i let go
I walk a mile at a time
eyes sharp but nothing to find

so i went blind
calling your name out in the night
reaching out for proof that I'm
not the only one alive
talking with my sickness
begging silence for a time
but the noise only gets louder in the echo chamber of my mind

Dig myself in deeper, it all ends tonight
All the senseless sensitives all begging god to end their life
can cut their wrists down to the bone with razor blades or bowie knives
For all I care I'm dead already, take me far away

carry me blind
consumed by hate and lust, I'm just a mind
drifting softly out of time
a restless, rage-filled miser draining life from anyone i can find
Though i may beg for mercy, if you find me you'd best leave me where I lie.

I love the simplicity of the chords and the lyrics, you've found a great emotion througout the song. I can feel the pain of the man in the background you've built to the lyrics, a great history and an awesome message. The only thing I would like to hear maybe is a bit more of the pads you added in the end. All in all, this is a great work, keep it up! :D

Thank you! I'd actually originally had the pads going throughout most of the song(starting at the first chorus) but it was hard to keep them from overpowering the song. I'll keep that in mind for the next track though, maybe get something a little softer throughout the whole song and have the strings pad come in later.

decent lyrics and instrument but you need to re balance the audio this is way to quiet.

Messed with the compression a bit and raised the level on the master track, should be loud enough now. thanks for the advice
