'Flying High'
The Barefaced Cheek

Max Mayhew - Lead Vocals/Guitar
Oli Robinson - Backing Vocals/Guitar
David King - Bass
Sam Thomason (Me) - Drums

Listen to it all the way through, don't judge it straight away.

Just some general facts...
The song's a story of a girl who takes drugs to get away from her hard life (lyrics by me).
You may notice we're British. From London, in fact.
Music written by The Barefaced Cheek.
We are on Myspace. Search our name, should be easy enough.

You've had a rough day
There's not a lot to say
They're getting in your way
And nothing's changing

You lock the door
As if you can ignore
The never-ending war
But that won't help

Your mind is dead
From watching skies turn red
You're locked outside your head
You need some (closure)

Jenny felt the pressures
Of her bedroom light glow
She dreamt of life
She dreamt a dream that she would never know

Your heartbeat races
Your face is
White as your eyes
Well then it all feels better in time

You're flying high
(And there's no one here to stop you)
You're flying high
(But they're never gonna get you now)
Now as time goes by
(And there's no one here to stop you)
You're flying high
(But the future's gonna get you)

You're in the sky
Watching time go by
There's no one here to try
To try and stop you

You dance about
Shouting things out loud
Your burning cloud
It's turned white again

You trip and fall
Head to the wall
Steps down the hall
And someone saves you

But then one day
You'll get this way
Without being saved
But you don't care

Nice sound

Hey, it sounds pretty nice, I'm not used to this kind of music, but I liked your song. I think the chorus could get some tuning, though ;)

Surprising sound

Hi guys,
I've got surprised to find this sound here. I'm going to check some of your other songs now.

I think you'll get your CD on the shops! But keep the feet on Earth, and don't go mad if you become famous! Always humble.

Keep on singing.

Thanks, we're not the types to overdo it, so you can be sure we won't get too head-strong.

sticky song xP

the lyrics were simply amazing 11. this was a marvelous piece of rock
sticky, very well done AND put together as one of the coolest songs [bc of the lyrics] on NG
the only problem ive got with this is that it looks like something else
it seems like ive heard this before.. or something alike
thats why the 9/10
but still
on the other score thingy,i gave it a 5/5 =3

MathcoreMathcore responds:

Haha the score thingy's all the matters :)


This could be a commercial song, and I was about to blam you because I thought it was.Then I realized that you're Newgrounds Band and that you wrote this ossim song.
Lyrics are stellar, well thought out, and well-played this is a great song.

MathcoreMathcore responds:

Thanks a lot. It's good to see people are still listening and voting. Thanks for your support.

Very well done.

Not quite my style of music but you guys play well together and the song flows easily.

Only thing I don't like is the delay you're using on the singers voice, I find it distracting, a softer reverb would've been more suiting I think, well, for me personally anyways.

Overall it's well done! The mix is well done and everything sits nicely which is a hard feat for most bands, so keep it up!

MathcoreMathcore responds:

We'll bear that in mind, thanks.
