Description
Gaylen kindly gave up his time and creativity to spin magic once again. A massive thanks again to you mate for you help.

This was caught up in the crash, I had to rework it all to get it back as near as I could to the original with a lot of changes too. Tricky to mix this one so any advice would be nice!

Lyrics
Theres no living with you
Theres no living without you
am I dying without you
I'm beginning to doubt you

She wears her make up obscene
it hides her mothers eyes
but as a favour to me
clean with reluctant sighs
now with her fragile hands
and a list of my demands
she'll make a meal out of me
and suck my sympathy
shell curse her fathers breath
and kiss the rosary
as she thumbs through the sins
she counts down on her knees
she asks herself
can she cut away this disease
she'll make a meal out of me
and suck my sympathy
can she bang on
can she bang on the cage
till its open
can she bang on
can she bang on
till its broken
she cant change her name
to make it all go away
so maybe shell find her answer
at the grind stone
Did you discovery your anger
in the mouth of a stranger
they wont let you close your eye
and forget the world you so despise
oh sadly there's a reason
for the raging nights
for the hypocrites
and all their itchy appetites
whoa the world is blind
to whores we keep as starving pets
that we bury deep in the breast
of our mothers fondest regrets
Theres no living with you
Theres no living without you
am I dying without you
I'm beginning to doubt you

Well done
I like those lyrics. The vocals may need some adjustment. For some reason it does not seem to completely fit. I think the parts with the effects work well, but the first verse kinda stuck out.

Fantastic vocals .. and some strange but interesting harmonies.. . lots of feel. Fantastic music .. nice up and down dynamics. Like the guitars around my head and what you've done with the drums... cool cymbals about half way into it. The whole mix is well done ... you don't need any advice. It's hard when you are so close to it. You can't hear it anymore. 6 minutes went by quickly.

The subtle sexual imagery in the lyric builds & holds interest. The spacious backer with airy synth tones allows plenty of room for the vocs to wind up and soar.

Storytelling
Like a character/concept track, mood drives this. The more layers of mood splashed across the 3D audio field the better. In my ears, the vocals can get too loud in spots. And the relaxed spaces could be filled up with a few more details. For me, there is a lot missing from this story. But I remained intrigued, its an interesting intuitive and conscious streaming feel.

Tasty
Your considered licks are the opposite of shredding. You have a cool style and kind of use your guitar skills to dance around rather than lead the song. Makes for an always interesting listen for those that lime to really tune in to what's going on. I dig this song for that reason.
As a whole it's very interesting as the combo of the backing and gaylens great and unexpected vocal ideas work into a piece of music which really holds your attention. I keep thinking about this tune.
Cool stuff
