I made this song for a contest hosted by SkyeWintrest named NGMT. The theme was to write a song about a world that could convey only a color (Monochromatic World) so i took a human approach to this and wrote a song about depression, how everything loses its color and sometimes people are left with nothing but rage, the color red.


I used to have a rainbow
In my head
I could see all the colors
Close my eyes and paint them myself
But now iv lost all that shine
My blank stare sees nothing but a...

Monochromatic world of my own
No more colors in my head
Lively dreams are now made of stone
And i see only a color instead...
Only red...

It is too hard
To not have any hope
Whenever you think you're safe things crumble down
Although time can try to trick you
It cant erase the pain!
It will always hurt to see where you are

Only red... x3

I would like to thank Skye, without contest there wouldn't be inspiration for the song, so thanks!

Thanks Krautergeist im happy you liked it :D

I'm not too much a fan of the vocals, might just be a personal thing but they're not for me. The guitar tone sounded a bit too cheesy too, thing you have too much of a chorus effect on it? The playing is simple, but it fits the song/theme and you do well with it. I would have liked more instrumentation as well, but I noticed that the challenge for this was to only use 4 instruments. Think it might have worked better if you cut out the solo guitar and provided drums instead. Not a bad piece, but I think it could use some variation

It's pretty awesome. Did you sing this yourself? It's not half bad. :3 Guitars sound nice and clear but like the guy below me said some percussion would have been nice.

Other than that I enjoyed this a lot, would love to hear more!

Thanks for the comment!
Yes im the singer in the song :)

Sounds nice man! Really portrays depression for sure. Only Problem I have is the lack of any percussion with this track. Some drums towards the end of the song would have given the song a little more Zazz I guess you can say that to it lol. But that kind of structure is kind of cliche I guess when it comes to clean guitar ballady songs right? Either way I dig the lyrics/progression/vocal melodies. Good job and favorited ya so I can see the next stuff you come up with on my feedz!

I made this for a contest, and the challenge was that we could only use 4 different stuff at the same time, so i used 2 guitar and 2 vocal tracks, i might end up remaking this song :)
Thanks for fanning me Jon that means a lot :D
