The Atom
By: Alexx Pacifici

you only know that you're alive
when you realize you're going to die

you only see it being built
when you see it coming crashing down

my pulse is beating
my blood is flowing
and it is scaring me

my heart is pounding
my lungs are breathing
and it;s scaring me

this world's a set up
it's almost impossible

i wish a was an atom
going on forever

i wish i was something small
something really really small

this world's a set up
it's almost impossible

good thing i have you
to keep me away from these fears

good thing i have you
cause you always hold me dear

very nice lyrics. train your singing, it needs it(not like an insult or anything)
this could have turned into something amazing. But nothing happened. I was waiting for the breakthrough, but no. nothing went up no trums or bass. I realise that this song is not meant to go "thump thump" but something intresting must happen

muy bonita

Quite pretty indeed. Love how you can make something so simple turn into something so powerful.

Soundshifter responds:

thanks a lot :)

its ok.

it kind of reminds me of champagne supernova, but i think it could use more than just the same sound over and over again. like ... some guitar or something toward the ending to express a bit more mood... but it was pretty good and could use a little bit improvement, but, it was ok overall :)

touching a bit too... i love your lyrics btw.

Soundshifter responds:

thx for a good review.. i like your input.. i will add to this song for sure. thx again :)

hard to find the words

the song is sort of bland but i think you made it that way. It lacks emotion and the music is basically the same through the whole song and by the second last verse it is just dragging. It is a good song, don't get me wrong , it just needs a little work thats all. You could make the music pick up around the 5th verse because i expected somthing and it was a little bit of a let down. Anyways a little more enthusiasim in the voice would be more likable but no worries. if you ment to sing it like this then you did a pretty good job keep up the work because i would love to hear more.


Soundshifter responds:

hey simon, thanks for giving me a full review. the reason being for my voice not being so hot is because it is a depressing song and i'm not a singer. mostly cause im not a singer lol. i've been thinking of adding harmonies as well and maybe another guitar, but for some reason i like it the way it sounds now. thx for the heads up. :)

pretty darn good

Idunno about the "yeah"s after each verse, they don't sound exactly enthusiastic. I do like the lyrics and the instrumentation is nice, good job.

Soundshifter responds:

thx dude. the yeahs are there to reinforce the statement. they're said without enthusiasm because i dont want to accept what i just said. maybe that helps. thx for listening :)
