Liner Notes: 

I wanted to take part to the week 1 challenge Biggrin

It is what it is.

Lyrics: 

"Don't go, don't go"
I sense this plea inside of me
"You're strange, you're wild, you are filled with desire
Come if you want to be free."

I know, I know...
Every step it's fighting me.
"Your hair, your style, your ageless spite juvenile"
Where am I in this haze?

I am empty
I am empty
Journey with no traveller
I am empty
I am empty
Fire in a fuelless domain

"Don't go, don't go
There's so much we have yet to see.
This time you'll feed on everything you can dream
Let's write some history"

I know, I know...
Nothing here will leave me be
My bones and my flesh can only hide the excess
And this is all there's left

I am empty
I am empty
Journey with no traveller
I am empty
I am empty
Fire in a fuelless domain
I am empty
I am empty
A body with no controller
I am empty
I am empty
Fire from beyond domains

There's a lot here, intriguing juxtapositions. The varied and impassioned styles of the bridge and outro combined with the line "a journey with no traveller" seem almost ironic, and the strange and wild creative force declaring itself empty prompts questions about creativity itself. Good stuff

At times you seem to be channeling Eddie Vedder. Strong lyrics and vocal delivery and a unique musical middle section. Isn't 50/90 cool?

Love the guitar. That first break is pretty great. And the lyrics,and your vocal delivery are spot on also.

Powerful lyrics with grit and insight. Beautifully delivered with a pared down acoustic style that I really like as it lets your vocals shine so beautifully. I love the emotion you deliver in this song.

The song starts and I imagined how it would unfold and then it went into something unexpected, which is awesome! Great vocals and melody on this track, very cool chord progression and feel. and then that intense marching Metal acoustic riff going in the first instrumental break, awesome. I think it takes some work to make a solo acoustic song pop and you certainly did that on this track.

I love the instrumental breaks and how it contrasts with the strong vocals and lyrics.

The intro had a Simon & Garfunkle Sound Of Silence vibe for me, for some reason. Love the guitar work & the simplicity of your vox coupled with the acoustic. This is a great tune that, I think, asks more questions about you than it answers for us. Good way to leave the audience wondering (and wanting more) Smile

See You In The Shadows…

Intense! You have such a powerful, cinematic and almost operatic voice. And you do some incredible things with the guitar - solo acoustic prog metal. Wow!

Oh my, those first lines have a lot of impact and are full of vocal attitude.
Great write and great lyrics. Love the way you arranged it, and agree with Chip re operatic shades :0

This is very evocative and full of emotion. Your vocal really emphasises the lyrics in it's cadences.
