Moonlight

Track 6


From my 2019 album Moonlight

I hope you enjoy it!


Thanks for listening


Close the door and turn a blind eye

A disguise

My eyes in the wreckage the outline

Of my mind

The trust, lost in time


From now on in

Hold the line, the crime

No more laughs, no more collapse

Of my mind

No more time to give you all

Just a thought of mine


We sat in that old park

Eternality of mind

We gazed into each others eyes

For a truth we couldn't find

We struggle with our enemies

Many now have been slain

We struggled with our fathers, and we shared the blame


Can you hear me call out your name

Feel the warmth not even shame

Remember that thought that past to your mind

Is it a crime that I want you to hear

All of life, day and night around us

From now on in


If the way i going never leads back to you

I carry on this servitude

With everything i do

To say that i'm crazy, that i've lost my way

don't say i wasn't there for you

That the price is still unpaid


From now on in

Wow! boy... I love it. This is very profound shit.... It's pure Pink Floyd if Sid was with us. It touched the place I thought it was long gone. I can't express to you how much I appreciate that anyone would make music like this nowadays.

OK, as for technicalities, the lyrics are great, but I can't understand some of it. Enounce? "To say that I wasn't there for you, but the price is still unpaid?" Awesome! but I'm not sure I got the words just right.

I like the rhythm guitar, and the transitions from major to minor. Kind of like Sid Barrett would on Emily Play, or Bike, or Interstellar Overdrive. Lyrics themselves are great, perhaps, just as a suggestion, maybe should be more directed to the audience, and less to self.

Instrumental, it's good production, but I would add more synth layers to fat the whole thing up.

Most importantly, a great piece like this really begs for a great guitar solo in the middle. It would pump the fuck out of it, and enhance the message.

If you are ever up for it, I would do collab with you on a song to two. Not to self promote, but my guitar is above average. I could add ye guitar parts to your lyrics, like no one else.

in any case, it is great to see you on NG. This kind of vibe is exactly why I start making making my own music, cause no one else would. But you are doing it, man.

Please keep it alive!

Wow I'm not sure what to say dude, really appreciate that! like... a lot!
So this is the only track on the album I collaborated with a good friend of mine (he's not on Newgrounds) The concept for this song is like new years resolutions, I wanted a track to confront the "If's" and "maybes" and say No, from now on in, i'm going to...... etc

so I approached him with the track pretty much complete and told him that concept and told him to write the lyrics for the choruses without telling me, which he sings and I sing the intro and the bridge and thats the way it sprung into life being a conversation back and forth in my head as the basic idea.

"Don't say I wasn't there for you, but the price is still unpaid" is the line your referring too
Il'e be totally honest, I've really not listed to much of Sid's material - Obviously appart form the main ones that are played often - Fun fact, with this being a concept album all the tracks speak with each other so as I said this track is a new years resolution type message of internal dialog which ends in G major. Track 7 which follows is about my view on the world outside my head and its depressing nature which is in G minor so i have a major becoming a Minor. I uploaded that this afternoon which I think you'll like.

In relation to the synths, yes I have many demos with varying degree's of 'over' production instrumentation but I felt it lost the narrative so I stripped back the synths to create a very unstable-esk dreamlike feel to help create the internal dialog theme.

In relation to whopping big fat guitar solo xD - well see Track 7 - The Blood On The Hands, I do think you might like that.
I have 10 tracks in total from this album so I have 3 more to upload as well as the 7 currently online, I like to use instrumentation to narrate just as much as the lyrics so you'll find many little and, indeed BIG solo's in my tracks. The solo I ended the album with on track 10 Is a big special one for me, tonally and compositional.

I would love to colab one day! for sure!. at the moment Im working on some new material and working out what I am doing with all my social media channels and stuff like that so at the moment my attention is not quite ready but, one day, for sure! Ile defo drop you a message

again thanks so much for the feedback and sorry for this massive reply but hope it answers your questions a bit. :)

Congrats on the frontpage :)
