This sounds great!
The sound on this is great. Nice lush mix and you have some exciting things and some interesting combinations of sounds. You got ripped by a couple of voters. It deserves a higher vote than what you got.

Here are some songwriting tips that I have learned through years of listening to music as a music director at various radio stations and by making my own songs on GarageBand. They might help you with your compositions.
1. Structure. There are various ways to construct a song to keep it interesting. One way is the create a "verse" (the "A" theme) then a "chorus" (the "B" theme) then perhaps repeat the A and B themes the create a "C" theme (some people call this the middle eight because it is often 8 measures long and is often the guitar or other instrument solo) then usually a return to the chorus to the end or sometimes a return to the "A" theme then the "B" theme. The different "themes" can consist of different bass lines and rhythm feels in addition to different melodies. Often it is interesting to change the key of this ending part ... maybe up a semit tone or two to make it sound fresh. Another way is the A-B-A form. Sometimes the "B" here is just a "Break" of a few bars.
Another tip is to use a "build" in the song to keep interest. Ad harmony in the second "verse" ... add a new background instrument, maybe double up a part an octave up from the original. Add more percussion or some changes to the percussion track by doubling it up a beat apart. All of these things keep the listener hooked into an instrumental song 'cause just about the time the listener thinks "I've heard it all on this song" you add a little surprise.

Listen to almost any of my postings here and you'll hear these techniques 'cause I'm pretty much a traditionalist and really not capable of doning anything too complicated. ;)

Hope these simple tips help you with your songwriting.
