 :) I  have finished my musically poem recite.
About the performance: I do not claim that it wants to please the masses.

@Mo   at 5 minutes & 40 seconds it's a long song, but you put in enough changes in the music to keep a listener's attention. I admire your drums in the mix, something I don't do well.

You start the song with "a thousand pieces of rope"  Americans have quite a few different expressions using rope. "Give a person enough rope to hang themselves"  , "at the end of their rope " "throwing a person a rope (or lifeline) for example. I interpret your song as throwing a person a life line who refuses to be pulled to safety, yet to be so caught up in emotions that there is the risk of being dragged down and lost to yourself. So you have to let go and it hurts.

Maybe someday (for me) you will sing this in German. I think it would give it much more power. although it's powerful as it is because you seem to lay your soul bare. To me songwriting is having something inside you that just has to get out.

Really very creative @Mo - it is almost like three songs beautifully woven together...  with the return of the Banjo instrument providing the thread of continuity... I really like the strings at the start - the low pizzicato basses are a real (and lovely) surprise following the quite jarring start. This was an emotionally interesting and enjoyable journey with you.

Thanks for listen and comments, @Vince and @Tolo! :)

As was stated already in the lyric section the lyrics were already a kind of collage, so I thought a musical collage would fit then too but I wasn't sure if it would work as a unit.

Ok, I did NOT expect a banjo intro, and certainly not one played like that!  Are you the one playing?

Wunderbar @Mo
much agreed with @Knate  that the banjo / Japanese Koto? intro is a very stylish surprise.
And I'm with @Vince - would be interesting to redo it in German.

Thank you very much for listen!

The banjo / Japanese Koto sounding instruments is a Chinese Pipa which i play as a touch instrument at my Iphone as I do with the most other instruments  like here with the strings etc as well.

I wonder what you would expect from a german redo @oorlab?  Just a hypothetical questionn coz I don't think I will do a redo.

@Mo - I guess a version in another language could have another 'musical' effect. Not expecting too much, just curious.
