My first release in a long time, this is the opening title track from my upcoming EP 'The Cross'.

Lyrics:

You’ve put walls to stop any help from coming build them higher won’t let us in at all
The problem being that through this you are setting yourself up, yourself up for a fall

There’ll come a time when you realise that you go nowhere through this your life slows to a crawl

We’re out here praying, you hear us saying, no hope in staying, to fight this sense of loss
There is no trying, we’re slowly dying, so stop your crying, I say get off your cross

The cage you live in is self-enclosed it can’t be easy to live in this pantomime
You can’t see beyond the four walls that you build oblivious, blinded to this pain of mine

We’re out here praying, you hear us saying, no hope in staying, to fight this sense of loss
There is no trying, we’re slowly dying, so stop your crying, I say get off your cross

I like the groovy guitar riffs and bass line. Mix is loud and clean, although I think the effects on the vocals were a bit excessive. It sounds like you they were electronically harmonized with a chord, and I thought that was a bit much. The mix is also a bit overly compressed to the point that there's not a lot of room for shape and musicality. Lyrics are probably my favorite part of the piece. Relatable, yet insightful and poetic. Fun track overall. I remember listening to some of your earlier tracks a few years ago. The mixing has totally stepped up since then. Keep it up, man! ^^
