Description
I used drum core, and alchemy, powerful tools, I wish I could have gotten the phrasing better in my vocal delivery. Thanks and hope you enjoy

Lyrics
Coming around the corner
its been building in the air
kind of soothing chaos
the powers seize the air
the giant web collapsed
while we were running up the stairs
the soldier in the middle is yelling out commands
the watchtower still prints
but no one even cared
the radicals burn their sheet
while sitting in their chairs
the passive and the meek
silently watch
and keep a stare
the numbers they are growing
getting bigger every week
someones got to sing it
someones got to speak
so playing is for nothing
as the hours pass for weeks
nothing could be coming but
I would never speak
the end it might be coming
so I give thanks for today
the numbers they are shrinking
if your holding your beliefs
someones got a basket
with bullets and receipts

the plot is getting thicker
the song is getting deep
everything is allright
if everything ok
say nothing in the meantime
say nothing in the day
everything is allright
and everythings a fight
its not getting useless if you keep up every night
nothing could be coming
but I will never speak
the end it might be coming
so I give thanks for today
the numbers they are shrinking
if everything is ok
someones got a basket
they hand it to your hands
and when everything is allright
they give you a command
the plot it gets deeper as the hours pass for years
and everything is allright
if you got nothing to fear
coming round the corner its building in the air
kind of soothing chaos
the powers seize the air
the giant web collapsed
while we were running up the stairs
the soldiers lift their guns
they keep yelling out commands
the watch tower still prints
and no one even cares
the radicals burn their sheets
sitting in their chairs
the passive and the meek silently watch
and keep a stare
the numbers growing
everything is getting weak
when everything collapsed
they keep sending out the sheep
but
no one ever got it
when no one ever speaks

everything is allright
when everything is ok
say nothing in the mean times
say nothing in the day

coming round the corner its been building in the air
kind of soothing chaos
the powers seize the air
the giant web collapsed
while we were running up the stairs

the soldier in the middle is yelling out commands

I'm diggin' this
This is real interesting musically and lyrically. I like the line "no one ever got it when no one ever speaks"I do hear the lennon but also a touch of the clash in the way it musically grooves along yet it's totally original ... and the ending is pretty cool.

Feels like those lyrics are charged up with the commando raid that got OBL. Very cool. Synth textures add to the dreamy atmosphere. Bass notes hold it way down.

I like all the ways in which this song is different from the rest of the alt rock masses. Cool vocals, burbling guitars, everything is clearly thought out. Very nice.

What a clean mix
I like the way you can hear your vocals up front. I think most of the time you try to hide them and I can hear the confidence on this song. Cool tune and some cool lyrics. Enjoyed.
