This song is about demons and self-defeat and the world that we create for ourselves. I really enjoyed creatiing this one, I think the sound of it is the most successful for me with garageband so far.

down on me
the haunting burdens that I breath across my life
for thirteen dollars tried some peace through a sharp knife
the shattered pieces all around me
down on me
the toxic dressings of these wounds that I have made
the broken back from placing stones upon my grave
I load the weight that falls down upon me

It's a mad world, oh that I seek
these habits that I feed
It's a mad world, oh that I own
paid my flesh and bone

Down on me
hallunications of the ghosts that hold me back
the broken tunge I tie at all that I do lack
I let it all down on me

Down on me
let it rain on me
let it burn around me
as long as I am free
let it fall down on me

This is a wicked great tune and I immediately fell into it! There's a sort of Lennon-esque quality to it, dreamy-yet-dark. Your voice is just wonderful, the harmonies, both parallel and backing, are superb. Production is top-notch. IlLove the line "broken back from placing stones upon my grave." This is a great subject and you handle it with a quiet, reserved intensity that really fits well with the overall mood. My one critique involves the bridges ("it's a mad world") - to my ears, they don't resound melodically like the rest of the song does. The chord changes and harmonies are killer, but the melody, to me, seems unresolved, and your vocals don't sound as sure-footed here as they do throughout the piece, where every note seems woven into the fabric. The bridge is a kvetch, because this tune really knocks my socks off! Keep up the excellent work.

thanks for the comments, I found it really interesting what you had to
say about the song. What would you suggest be subtley different for
the chorus? I am pretty into it, but I would like to know how it was less
resounding than the verse. I think I do need to play with the backing
vocal levels and blends for the chorus and maybe add some more
instrumental transition into them. thanks again.
