I travel down this darkened road not knowing what I’m thinking.
Carrying this heavy load, all by myself.
I’m looking for something; I’ve seen it in my dreams before.
Why I feel nothing, even from myself is….

A shame; All Ashamed
You’re better than that.
Ashamed; All Ashamed
You’re better than that.

Show me all your tears so I know what you’re thinking.
Tell me all your fears, I need to know today.
Just sit next to me and gaze up at the sunshine
For days upon days, when you face me now you’re still….


In a distant dream, where memory is gone now.
I feel so supreme—you know who I am.
You point and you tingle when I get near to you.
I’m everywhere. Just turn around and now you’re…

Wanting me, needing me, feeling me and I am
Walking free, seeing me, praising me, and there I go.
It’s there I go.

I turn the corner I’m walking East past 8th.
Looking past the water it’s there that I died.
No wonder you never saw me. My assumptions were all wrong.
I’m less than free here; please do not be…..

Good song; good singing; great strumming. For my taste
the guitar FX are a bit too much - they kind of kill the
shape of the song; this song has a pretty neat structure
but I think that gets buried under the wash. But buckets of

Seems almost too effected, less wet more dry.... Good little
song, vocals are unique and in spots are really nice, and
other spots seem to be overly done (dunno how to say it-

Good piece all in all.

Yes---there is a point too where I notice the vocals being off like you say. I'm meaning to fix that. :) Thanks for the comments.
