retro sounding, hopefully not overly political rant over the state of the world.
re-edited and sung in an attempt to take on board various much appreciated comments esp. Daugin.

we were walking in the sunlit uplands
hand in hand
a new enlightened day had come at last
but hey! that was just a dream
.. just a beautiful dream…

we are living in the haven of
our walled cocoon
no strangers here, just our clones
but hey! that is just a dream
.. just a terrible dream…

leaders that feed our nightmares
just to get their way
they give us answers
but they’re only as real as dreams…

please! let us wake to see
the lies, the hate and the dreams
.. the terrible dreams..

dream 2
Most elements are working pretty well, now, Donald. The mix has some nice space and quite good balance. The timing still seems a touch off mainly due to the delayed drums, I think. They just seem to be lagging the rest of the band a bit. It does provide a spacey, laid-back vibe but I still find it a touch distracting. The vocal work is okay but perhaps have a look at re-singing "leaders that feed our nightmares..." where the vocal probably strays a bit too far from tune for comfort. I know you are new to all this and we have all gone through the steep learning curve ourselves so I am very sympathetic to your plight. Persevere. Improvement will definitely come with reading and practice. Youtube is a great source of information to explain home recording processes and terminology. Take care, Peter.

oh no!!
You're right, the drums are out at times, back to the drawing board! I dont understand why I dont hear these things until they are pointed out to me. I must be getting habituated to the off sound. I guess the answer is to get these things absolutely nailed down right from the start. I also think the vocals are lack lustre and want to have another go at that also.I really appreciate the feedback, advice and support thank you so much for taking the time.

i like the looseness of this. it's kinda lazy and 'i don't care'....which is cool. i really like the construction where you drop in and out in places. your endings are nice. i like how the noodle on this pans across.
