Started this in a late night drunken stupor, finished it with the intent on playing it for my songwriting class. Had to get a bunch of lyrics through stream of conciousness journaling.

Pay attention to the lyrics and not my singing(if possible). I know my voice is...well...yea

Here's what I came up with:

Amidst the mountain side
beams of light cloud my eyes(it's no surprise).
Legs fall like the finest wines,
Flowing though different phases of time.
Rain spawns from out of ice icy air.
Howling winds can lead anywhere.
Stop to think, and become aware.
Uncertainty is a powerless affair.

Stop to think, and become aware.
Uncertainty is a powerless affair.

Tell me what you think :D

RyeGuyHead responds:

Cool, I'm gonna submit an instrumental version tonight


I loved the intro sine-like synths--it conveys a very calm and relaxing atmosphere.

Ignoring the vocal factor, I really like the vocal melodies though! You may want to put in some delay on the vocals to create a more flowing feel? Just a thought ;)

The break at 2:25 followed by the synth "solo" was awsome!!!

But I agree with the previous reviewer, it feels incomplete and needs some tweaks here and there.

Overall, the track is very soothing and can actually make me fall asleep (a good thing) haha

RyeGuyHead responds:

sweet, glad you liked it.

I know this one needs some tweaking, as do most(all?)


It certainly has potential, but for me it sounded like it's the B├ęta version of a demo.

What I liked about this song is the background music, it's smooth, calming and a bit gentle. But, as you said before, the song needs other vocals. Not that I dislike your voice, but it really distracted me from the message of your lyrics.

What is that message, anyway? I tried to understand you're lyrics twice, but it doesn't seem to make sense for me.

Anywho, keep making music.

RyeGuyHead responds:

yea, this song is in no way complete

The message involves the fog as a metaphor for being uncertain about things


(female vocals would work best, but does ANYONE want to record over this?)
