My friends.

Now that I'm back to my lil room studio. I've had a lot of time to work on music. Too bad I was having writers block. Fortunately... I find that in these times, I often make my best work. So out from the ashes... this song was born. It started with me playing with some vocal effects and applying them to an old song I was writing. After a while I had completely transformed my work into what I feel is one of my most impressive songs to date. I'll leave the lyrics open to interpretation, but I feel I should also make a music video to this, just to give the visual I was feeling when writing it.

Anywho... since you're probably listening to it already. You'll likely want the lyrics...

-=Verse 1 =-
Live Strong
Run Free
Die Well
But you cannot escape

This is where we cried
Tombstone of a
The sky is set in
Shades of gray
Cause here you lay

Even if I was the key
I could never set you free
The sky is set in shades of gray
Cuz here you lay

-=Verse 2=-
Broken lives
and tainted hearts
I Can't go back
To where it starts
I Can't go home
Can't go home

This is where we cried
tombstone of a
The sky is set in
Shades of gray
Cuz here you lay

Even if I was the key
I could never set you free
The sky is set in shades of gray
Cuz here you lay

Here you lay


wow good song

good song i had this on repet of about 10 times maby or a bit moreand it help me out a lot i love the song good job

Very good

Sounds very good in general, and it has a beautiful intro
Too bad It has some minor points though :/
I always loved the "chaos" in quite a lot of your songs, but it has never been this much :S
There's too many vocals, repeating everything you sing first.
And the piano is sometimes a bit too much..

But It's still a very good song,
Another congratulations on this new submission :p

Did you write the lyrics?

Did you sing them?

Instrumentation was spectacular. There were some parts where it sounded.. a little off tempo or something...
Some of the vocal parts had a little too many effects on it.

I think you should lengthen this by about another minute.

Have your ending become the bridge..
"Here you lay
repeat this a few times and come back into the chorus, another verse then end with the chorus followed by the trailing : here you lay ooOOOoo's again.

This song is great, maybe a little whispy, and the verses are not too great, but everything else is good.

Pretty good

Your right that the voices are slightly whispy but it's still a good idea
