Description
This song began as a music bed for a video contest created by someone dear to me. The experience inspired me to create a complete version of the song with the subject matter about the Possible Future we could have.

Lyrics
Imagine everything has changed,
A world no longer constrained.
It's not the same.

No goal impossible to reach,
There's no horizon at sea.
We've become free.

And so, we pass from day to day,
We mold the future our way.
We start today.

Your hand extending out will be,
The vine that holds onto me.
You're here with me.
You're here with me.

If you're far away,
You will fall away.

A curious display pervades
Beyond the boundaries we've made.
They have decayed.

It's more than vision we perceive,
In time, we'll find more than peace.
We will believe.

We'll pass through into the sublime,
We fall away and in line.
We have the time.

And light will guide us on our way,
Your path, your future remains.
We're okay.
Just fall away.

Here with me,
We can do anything, do anything.

Here with me,
We can do anything and everything.

Superb!
This is to me incredibly accomplished and pro-sound! Great song & vocals and the fuzz guitar/synth during the later part is just the perfect icing on the cake. At 5:08: Wow!

nice one
man this is put together so nicely. the production is blowing me away. really interested in what you are using. the kick sounds perfect and the panning percussive sound is really nice. some cool synth sounds too. Kind of reminiscent of old bands like Depeche Mode and Erasure, but I can also see this appealing to fans of bands like MGMT. very cool stuff.

I'm using Logic Studio 9. I've found it can produce some really good results for me... when it comes to rhythm, I usually compress every drum sound, use the space designer instead of the other reverbs and often layer drums on top of each other if I'm looking for a particular sound. I've just started mixing with studio monitors... I was pretty late to the game on that investment. :P

Great post!
Good to see you back around the place :)
Lovely production and performances on this - Bowie-esque, or more accurately, Iva Davies-esque..
Cheers from Oz,
Love it!

Thanks Neil!
Yeah, I keep going through periods where life gets quite busy on me and I lack the time to relax and play with composition so I was happy to be able to snag some time and work out another tune. Glad you dug it!

back with a bang...
Excellent to hear new things from you again... your future remains here, we're ok. Excellent "soft 80's" style music with a strange chord twist, alluringly expansive lyrics, just love it. Coolness here.
ttfn,
Drakonis

I wonder how many of us old timers there are 'round these parts anymore... I tend to disappear and pop back in when I've actually completed a song, heheh!

Cool lyrics and really like the way you sing them. You have that 80s techno feel to this. Great composition, and your pieces of synth sounds are well placed. Great production! Great tune!

Loving the Retro feel to this!
Awesome nostalgic feel to this piece. Lovely pads with driving bass line, brings back so many bands that were great in that era. Great build-up at the end, to make me snap out of it and bring me back to the present time :)

Thanks so much for sharing this!

Take care,
Patty

I'm glad it brought those emotions out of you... my goal was to create a song that converted overtime into the "inspirational"
