Liner Notes: 

Skirmish prompt of "Sleep"

So I don't think this is a lullaby kind of song - I went for more fantasy gothy heavy rock - well not sure it's that either, but it's heavyish rather than sleepy soothing. I mention the word "Sleep" in here a few times, that's my tenuous connection to the prompt.

Lyrics: 

(No Sleep) If the 7th Halo Falls

When the night falls
You close your eyes
The wind crawls
And the demons rise

Monsters walk this world
Your nightmares are real
Every footstep heard
Wake up and squeal

If The 7th halo falls
No sleep till the fights done
If The 7th halo falls
No sleep for anyone

The world has turned black
Blacker than the night
Rest in your bed
Prepare for the fight

Crazy times ahead
Sandman wont show
The darkest hour shines
In a hellish glow

Rest your weary head
Your eyes so tired
You cannot sleep
Your brain is wired

The halo must fall
We fight to the end
The halo must win
There’ll be no sleep till then



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Not "tenuous" at all - Lots of references to sleep in the lyric, which is dark and heavy! Smile Awesome guitar and music in general

All this in two hours?? Great work! Awesome guitar and vocals and I think it fits right in with the prompt, in that darker aspect of the sleep theme.

Awwww yeah! This one just feels so right. It must be my current "f*** everything" mood. : ) That guitar is just so brash and in your face. I dig it!
The lyrics fit the music so well. Damn it Sandman!!! I need to sleep!

This rocks. Reminds me of a guy I used to know whose catch phrase was "Nobody Sleeps" as he is driving us to a club volleyball tournament at 6am playing Frank Zappa full blast. Hokely Mokely!

Terrific! I like the dark flavor and the sense of a world I don’t know about but that has its own rules that *must* be respected, no matter the personal cost. Awesome job on the instruments!!

Monster guitars, and some killer lead lines. Great hard rock/metal groove and I like your vocal a lot too. The lyric is totally appropriate the prompt.

Whoa! The guitars on this are so incredibly awesome!!!! I love the music and the vocal delivery of these deliciously dark lyrics is fantastic! Love that hook too! Brilliant take on the skirmish prompt!
