Lyrics
when you finish your school and start your career
you start seeing what you have never seen before
like how the world is full of arseholes who are
just waiting for you to fall and be a failure

your mates in school turn into your enemies
who wants to rob you and leave you in misery
they steal your job and they steal your girlie
i guess that i just dont call it a rivalry

welcome to the war zone you spawn
your new boss makes you blow his filthy horn
and if you don't, youd end up in street anyway
selling your virgin arse and getting thrown away
slap your own face with all your might
there will be no more sweet wake-up-and-shine
this is the end of the road of your puberty
this is the end of the innocence and the purity
 
i just wanna get along
i just want a place to belong
why does everything always
have to be so complicated
i dont wanna hear how
much more you make than i now
why does everything always
have to be competitive anyway
friendship is just another glass you break
 
well, i exaggerated the first verse a little bit
but you feel it that there was some bloody truth in it
growing into an adult is a pain in the arse
and you cant just wash away your scars in the bath

when i started earning like my old man used to
my old man got retired and took off his boots
but he wasnt even 60 when his company got rid of him
and just when the market crushed, we went skint

the financial crisis gave my mum a good reason
to declare a war against the man already beaten
she said that there was no love in the first place
and shed been putting up just for my own sake

when the whole world looks like a CG animation
everybody cheers with a standing ovation
what would i do to save my own arse
my life got shattered and we got fallen apart 

i just wanna get along
why cant i just be your son
why does everything always
have to be so complicated
i dont wanna hear how
you hate each other now
why does everything always
have to be torn apart anyway
love is just another glass you break

Great Title
Hey, I dig this! Its sort of punk, but with an ecclectic spoken-word twist. The quarter-note chords during the verse really make the chorus kick... and it has quite a hook! Nice guitar riffs and solo work too.

The production sounds a little muddy. I think you could bring the vocals forward a bit as well. The cymbal during the chorus sounds a little odd... maybe it just needs to be a higher tone?

I'd suggest playing with the EQ setting on the tracks a bit and revisiting the mix. Getting each instrument to settle into a frequency range will make everything sound much more crisp. A few improvements in production could really make this track shine!

Dig it.
Love the whole groove of the piece. And the sound is
perfect. It has a real (dare I say) garage band feel. Maybe
Indie-band is better.

Cool song.

friggin' great
I love this song! Some Great lyrics. Great original beat
and great instrument performance. The spoken word
parts are really well done. The chorus that you sing is
gettting too buried in the mix though, and you could do
better with your pronunciation in those parts, hit it a little
harder and tighter. The title line about the world being
like CG animation seems out of place to me and doesn't
seem to belong. I'd try to find something
more in keeping with the themes you set in the rest of the
song. I love the line "love is just another glass you break"
and the way you deliver it. I'd suggest THAT for the title.

Great Song Writing
I love the song writing on this one - thoughtful lyrics,
delivered well, very creative structure, great guitar
sounds.

Mix needs a lot of work. Maybe you were after that
distortion on the cymbal (high-hat?), but it sounds like
clipping to me. As others have mentioned, the vocals are
muddy and buried in the mix.

Hope you redo the mix, because this great song deserves
it!

Great Song Writing
thank you very much for your comment!
i totally agree with you that this needs more mixing work.
the whole thing sounds a little too muddy, i think.

a crashing sea of sound
don't know if you intended it but the chorus seems to
crush and drown out the vocals, making your voice drown
in a sea of sound - which seems to make perfect sense
considering the subject matter. i like the story and the
sound. very much. thank you.

Another Song Well Done
Rhythms, playing, singing, speaking, even the "muddy"
production (not unusual in indie/alternative rock
recordings) - I enjoyed it all.

You should have more fans!

great tune
This song is great... I love the music, the guitar
hooks, the scruffy production... the only thing I
didn't like was the fuzziness/distortion on the
vocals. It was really distracting as the song went on.
I wanted to hear the lyrics better! That's my only
beef.

You've got the pulse
Great tune. Excellent rhythmic pulse, mix of talking and
singing, great hook, cool guitar solo. You are such a solid
songwriter.
