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

Don't listen to TheMaskedJew... he's an idiot, you just keep on writing your music.

Haha don't worry about it... guys like him give me someone to make fun of.

Thanks for the review.



Pop for me is not a best field i can work although i had my influences when i was much younger...However your song is not as much as melodical as i always like to .. But i still give it a 10 because it has a very good recording and vocal melodies.. DUDE seriously your Vocal recording is awesome. the way you used back vocals to kinda make the whole sound is very inspiring to me. Continue the good work , And send me your studio, damn it! lol

That's What I'm Talkin' About!

Just Great! you have talent there bro!
