(I know it's a long song, it starts out slowly, at least get to the guitar solo before you cast your vote, please)
A song about a robot who wants to be human to be with the human girl that he loves

If I had lungs then I could sing for you
If only I were human, then you could understand how I feel
I would slow the world down for you

And If I were a space man, i would steal the stars for you
Tear them right from the heavens, Put them right into your eyes
And If I had hands then I could write a song for you
If i could play the guitar, then this is what i'd do

And if I had the talent to make
you mine, Then you would be trapped forever
And If I were the man you wanted
I, I swear I could keep you happy
And If I had the lungs to scream then
I, I would ask you to sing for me
Sing a song that means youd stay here
My broken heart of stone is yours now

I would slow the world down for you
So you can take time to enjoy it

Crap...It's too epic for me...Dude, this is epic win!

A masterpiece

This is one of the greatest songs I have heard in awhile, meaning I like it a lot (lol)! Few songs are able to be this long and keep the listener's attention the entire time. It just gets better as it goes on, especially at around the halfway point. It is an interesting study into our own psyches and what goes into our daily routines. The differnet kinds of instruments used at 2:02 are also a great turning point. You have made a really emotional song, but have not tried to make it whiny or in anyway silly.


Loved it, the sad style, the guitar solo, everything! =] It just goes a bit weird for the human singing bit, but weird is okay!

I would make a flash, but I don't have the patience to do one without a tablet, which I'm getting for my birthday, which happens to be July 10th. So would be late for robot day.

Reminded me of a song I saw on You Tube, by GiR2007 : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MT_OwJ tEybc

Just cause of the chords and robotic voice.


totally awesome man

seriously power.

though the man part where you start singing human is a bit off key, the guitar solo and the lyrics totally make up for it!

very awesome, and fav'd

merlin responds:

Wow, thank you, MindChamber :3

now this is music

it doesnt have to be 'super' it doesnt have to be 'pro' as long as its innovative and take you on a trip trough a story.

merlin responds:
