Look At Me

Crafted with @bassfiddlejones for round 2 of NGADM 2018. This time we brought my wife in to sing this punchy orchestral metal song.

Lyrics:

Captive by your insecurities
And you keep passin’ me by
Locked inside this unseen grave
An’ there’s no reason why

No sound escapes my lips
In the silence I digress
This is the prison I call home

But you hold the key
To set me free

Chorus:
Can’t you see me standin’ here?
Have I really disappeared?
In the shadows, far behind
Clearly screaming “Look at me!”
How long must this go on?
Til’ the day the sun is gone?
In a void of endless night
Clearly screaming “Look at me!”

Verse 2:
Cast aside like I’m an afterthought
No tears left to cry
I even miss the days when we would fight
Now you’re bleedin’ me dry

But you hold the key
To set me free

Bridge:
Am I just another pawn in your political scheme?
Or the squeaky wheel spinnin’ in a broken machine?
Think I enjoy second fiddle playin’ too hard to get?
Take a look in the mirror, still haven’t found me yet

Will you notice me when I am gone?
Will you miss this chance before it all goes wrong?
Could you try a little harder maybe just to relate
Instead of thinkin’bout yourself and all the plans you made?

Good lyrics

Some really nice lyrics and the vocals accent it well the guitar stuff was just as amazing and I have to say it all came together well with some good quality and just plays well and I honestly can't think of anything to change on this it was a beautiful piece of music and glad I had the chance to review your work here today
