Started around 3pm finish around 3 am. :P
A new indie trance song My friend and I did. He did vocals and I setup the rest of the song.
We payed the person at a coffee shop $2.75 all in pennies and that's how the inspiration for the lyrics came about.

There will be one more edit to fix the peaking in the vocals at 2:34 - 3:00.

Lyrics:

I strive to standout not because I need attention,
but because I need to demonstrate my ability to stand on my own.
I pay with exact change because this world has already counted me out they are exactly the same, I am exact change.
-------------------------
-------------------------
-------------------------
-------------------------
-------------------------
--------------
Open the door, and then step in the line.
Got my bag full o' coins and I'm feelin' fine.
Got a great plan that I'm gonna use this time.
Got my change in my hand and the world is mine.

But then something happened, so unexpected, and
nothing turned out as I'd projected.
My coins on the counter lay uncollected
because exact change remains rejected.
-------------------------
-------------------------
-------------------------
-------------------------
-------------------------
--------------
Stand out in a world of my own,
I live amongst them, but I feel all alone.
I try so hard to live and just stand out,
I'd give you my change if you just stuck your hand out.

I'll give it exactly, I won't ask for some back,
'cuz I'm leaving this world, I won't ever come back.
'Cuz I know when I leave here it won't feel so strange,
'cuz they stay the same and I am exact change
-------------------------
-------------------------
-------------------------
-------------------------
-------------------------
--------------
I strive to standout not because I need attention,
but because I need to demonstrate my ability to stand on my own.
I pay with exact change because this world has already counted me out they are exactly the same, I am exact change.

Epic Piece

You know, songs are like poetry, and what that means is that this is just completely outstanding.

Excellent

Excellent

Ok,i said i'd check this out.

Really catchy song for sure. Got a cool beat, got all the aspects of what a techno or trance song would have. Deffenatly can hear your own vibe in it. Some really good stuff though. I'm not hearing anything for improvement. I can hear alot of emotion in this tracfk as well wich i feel more music needs to have in it. Lovely lovely stuff.

Nice beat

Really catchy beat, the song's great. The vocals could use a bit of work though, the voice of your friend seems a bit clipped and doesn't feel all that melodic in comparison with the song when he sings, the part where he just talks is loads better.

The ending also seems a tad abrupt, I think it would sound better if you just fade it out at the end instead of having that bell sound.

good

nice!! the guy in the song needs to take a breath lol!!
