A goofy little melodramatic song that I wrote. I love how ridiculous my vocals are, particularly towards the end.

Lyrics:

I don’t want to be a snail
But this is what my life is like now
True love won’t find me in the end
And I can’t walk the cow

I woke up this morning
Sleeping in my bed
Under the covers
Thinking about past lovers
I tried to stretch
I couldn’t feel my hands
I didn’t understand
I woke up and I was a snail

I don’t want to be a snail
But this is what my life is like now
True love won’t find me in the end
And I can’t walk the cow

Jesus does not have eleven syllables
I woke up and I was a snail
What am I supposed to do
I can’t eat salt ever again
As far as I know it isn’t my fault
Maybe I made a wizard angry
Maybe a wizard cursed me
That is why I am a snail

I don’t want to be a snail
But this is what my life is like now
True love won’t find me in the end
And I can’t walk the cow
I don’t want to be a snail
But this is what my life is like now
True love won’t find me in the end
And I can’t walk the cow

I wish that I could break the laws of the universe
I wish that I could do anything I’d like to do

The instrumentals are nice - I particularly enjoy the lush layers of synths throughout the song. The melodic motifs, such as the one starting at around 0:12, are also nice. Both of these aspects combine to create this sort of melancholic atmosphere and vibe to it. Instrumentally, it's quite good and it works as a melodic expression of melancholy.

Lyrically and as a concept, the song isn't bad and I could see it working. However, as a whole, I have mixed feelings on the track, which for the most part can be attributed to the vocals. I understand that it's likely intentional, though for me personally, I felt like it was a bit grating to hear, especially considering the length of the song. This isn't to say that I don't think this sort of thing can be done well. I think the juxtaposition of this sort of vocal style with the more melancholic instrumental could definitely work in a goofy/comedic sense, but in this particular track, I personally don't think it does.

Regardless, the song is compositionally and conceptually interesting. Keep it up, and good luck on your future endeavors!
