"Terra Angelica"

slowly i go, with this aura about me
while far beyond me you lose sleep
gently you whisper in my ear
and you keep my fearless here
all these years you've lost sleep over me
quickly i stride across a plain of delusion
towards a house, in a field, where all wounds heal
but my patience thins, the walls come caving in
gving me new eyes that can detect lies
but all the while, i'm wondering
"is it worth it?"

oh, nothing is without
a single shadow of a doubt
that never really means never
and she paces gracelessly
making tedious footfalls
exhausted and sly
and she walks slowly
as she walks, she flies

Probably my favorite from you. :)

Gunshy responds:

Oh wow, thank you so much. It's probably mine too :))))))

I enjoyed the song and heard some nice influences.

The only thing that I felt that was too familiar, was the beginning sounding like "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" I liked the general setup though.

Gunshy responds:

hmmm yeah i hear it, i hear exactly what you're talking about... in my defense i think it's JUUUUST different enough to retain legal distinction, but yeah at best it's HIGHLY HIGHLY reminiscent of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" there in the 1st verse... the 2nd switches it up enough, with the melody, but yeah that 1st verse is a little troubling. thanks for the 9 despite it though :)


Damn near perfect. Reminds me of The Smashing Pumpkins, love the progression, it's very original

Gunshy responds:

(thanks you!)


i first heard this song about 3 years ago

i don't even come to newgrounds anymore but i keep coming back to listen to this

Gunshy responds:

thank you much for comin back for the listening! thanks.


I think the lyrics could use more work like try writing about events in your life and things that matter to you.

You have a great voice too and all the instruments fit in nicely.


Gunshy responds:

hey hey, this isn't totally useless... it's a fuckin 9 after all...
to be fair, these are half the lyrics of the original version, which would have been twice as long. at the time i cared about song length... but, to be blunt, this song IS about something that matters to me, a dead friend. i just hide the real meaning behind all this imagery. at the time of writing it (about 6 yrs after the friend's sudden death) this was still all i could say about her, about how i felt... about how i was dealing with it, still... and it came out in this dreamy super-saturated metaphor, with so many esoteric and/or freudian symbols, he'd have a field day... now if i wrote this song i'd probably go the other direction with it, turn it into a story about some other girl, her death and 'walking as she flies,'
etc... anyway, thanks for the compliments on the vox and instrumentation, much appreciated, as well as the favoriting.
be well.
