Song about those times when there's rough, but luckily you got your friends supporting you. Alright, alright, I know, that's cliché. Like reeeally cliché. I apologize for everything I have said.

About the name: I've found it really hard to talk with friends about problems. Was it small or big problem, it's absurdly hard to press the send button. I don't know about you, but firing a simple Jesus-Christ-things-don't-go-so-well -message to my best friend seems like the hardest task one could give me. And I do not even understand why is it so hard to talk. Fucked up mind gives no explanations, eh? Strings in the case means the strings of puppet show, and you're the puppet. Without strings--your friends--you wouldn't be able to do the simplest activity a human could do, walking.

Fear not, as it has gone better now and I can unleash my burden far more easier than before, but there's still that something, odd curbing feeling that ropes my intentions to speak. Anyhow, I've learned that there's nothing better than your friend's warming and soothing voice when you're flooding the floor with your tears. Jesus, I fear my moss-covered wallet won't be enough to cover our water damage. Oops!

Okay but on a serious note, that went dark.

How about advertisement about my social media instead?
That's not too dark.

Warning: shameless advertising ahead!

[MIND THE LATE REVIEW, DIDN'T REALIZE YOU UPLOADED 3 SONGS] Hmm...as catchy as ever, my dude. Something about this song reminds me of Tension, my dear, but I don't know what... *sips water* ~Skiddle

djhoneyb responds:

maybe I unconsciously did something similar?

Everything is great about this except there isn't a real Melody imo. The voices were repetitive and tried to replace the lack of a Melody and it somewhat worked. However, this song does have such great bass, percussion, and structure. With a strong lead or smooth synth that doesn't repeat too much, this would be amazing. I hope this helps :P

djhoneyb responds:

Ah, yeah. I had some problems with creating the melody, so I just kept it like that. Thanks for the constructive criticism!

Alright!!! The bass in this really does make me feel the need to headbang. Nice one.

djhoneyb responds:

thank youuuu
*headbangs back*

Second on one of my fave artists!

djhoneyb responds:

djhoneyb responds:
