Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

Think I may have said the wrong word in a few places on the demo - if there's a discrepancy between what you hear and what the lyrics written out say, the demo is the one that's wrong, haha. This song feels just a bit too sweet for my tastes, but maybe that's just my own bias. The challenge was fun, anyway!

Lyrics: 

Didn't I tell you
It's all about the angles?
Didn't I tell you
When the wire untangles
It's gonna leave it's mark
In the shape of every part
Of the square that didn't fit through the round hole?
It doesn't make much sense,
The worst things never did
That's how you know you've still got your soul

Hold your ground, you're not what needs to break
In a better mold, you're the perfect shape

Didn't I tell you
You can be tired with me?
Didn't you tell me
Drop the mask till I leave?
So many things were made
By people who were afraid
That they would never get what they want
So never feel guilty
For getting what you need
Because you'd give the world away if it was yours

Hold your ground, you're not what needs to break
In a better mold, you're the perfect shape

Didn't I tell you?
What did they tell you?
What do you tell you?
Didn't I tell you?

Hold your ground, you're not what needs to break
In a better mold, you're the perfect shape
In a better world, you're the perfect shape

the melody is so pretty, the song couldnt help its sweetness. also, the sentiment is pretty sweet. i like how you use a lot of different shapes in the beginning, then you get to te heart of things with your advice to srop the mask, and dont worry about the molds you dont fit into. just be yourself.

"in another mold you're the perfect shape" -- what an encouraging and hopeful line! Beautiful melody.
Great writing all around. Could listen to music like this all day.

Mold is what you did with these lyrics. Love the way they flow into the music. Nothing wrong with a bit sweet, wasnt over sweet to my taste. Really enjoyed this!

Very nice take on the challenge here. "In a better mold you're the perfect shape" is a great line and theme. I don't find this too sweet (imho). The first verse is a strong lead into the chorus. I like it.
