My first metal submission to Newgrounds is very dear to me, so here I've updated it. Now utilizing my newest equipment, a better DAW, and all the experience I've gathered from my projects since.

Thanks again to Tremulos, for letting me use his track again!

My first version: http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/536464


From the corners of my eyes I see you waiting, watching.
Hairs stand and I shiver, but I know you can't be real.
Sleepless nights, not a wink, that's how you came to be.
A figment of my overactive creativity.
I see you staring but I don't return the gaze, cause then you're gone.
I can't escape my own mind. I can't escape my own mind.
You keep me awake but you're here because I can't sleep.
I can't win. I'm the helpless creator, with
eyes wide open under the sheets.
I see your eyes in a distant corner.
I feel your breath against my skin.
I hear you laugh when I close my eyes.
I feel your gaze, laid upon me.
You take me away.
Take me away.

Excellent job on this. Sounds like the first Five Finger Death Punch album. But I still think it's awesome.

yo this sounds like Five Finger Death Punch xD

"I feel your breath against my skin." ...sexy :P

Absolutely badass, man; the layering of the multiple vocal tracks sounds professional as fuck. You take my music to another level.

PhallicNinja responds:

Muchas gracias, senor! I listened to your advice on the original version and changed up my panning on this one! Every bit of advice from people helps me grow, thank you!
