Fear

A little song about the fear forced on us by the powers that be.

I realize the repeated riff in this song becomes a bit annoying. This will be adapted/re-written in the Re-record.

Fear

1

You've got curses on you faces
Colour in your eyes
You've Shown yourself
We don't belong
We're Killers in your mind

2

You cover me with silence
With beliefs so old
You said yourself
We don't belong
You think you've saved your soul

pre

If your coming to steal me
They'll never believe me
If your coming to get me
You don't know what you'll find
If your coming to change me
Already made up my mind
If your coming to kill me
Your wasting your time
Wasting your time

ch

All you know
Is i'm a face in the crowd
Thinking out loud
Whenever i can
Whenever you judge me
I act (x2)

3

You blindfold the innocents
With one thing on your mind
Push the fear
Make it clear
We'll be left behind

4

You ride this road for centuries
With everything so clear
You give your life
Blood on knife
No-one seems to hear

pre

If your coming to steal me
They'll never believe me
If your coming to get me
You don't know what you'll find
If your coming to change me
Already made up my mind
If your coming to kill me
Your wasting your time
Wasting your time

ch

All you know
Is i'm a face in the crowd
Thinking out loud
Whenever i can
Whenever you judge me
I act (x2)

Maybe because I am a huge fan of Bram Tchaikovsky, but I hear a little bit of that drive.
If you really want to know, I donít think the riff is annoying. It certainly hammers it home.
I also think that the level of the drums in the mix is distracting the focus on lyrics and the rest of the backing.
I like it very very much. I wouldnít fool around (to avoid the other f word for the  delicate souls in da Kitchen) too much with it. I think it deserves to be left as it is.

Iíll be around later for another listen.
Kind regards, Gus

Hi @Modestmouse1965/ ( Stevy), as a bit of a guitarist and a bit of a vocalist, I can honestly say that the guitar and vocals sound find to me as they are.  As Gus mentioned, the drums are a bit dominant compared to the Vox, but this track feels fresh and alive, and as a non-dancer, it still makes me tap my foot. It has a vibe.

It had that raw energy that would work well played live in a sweaty club with everybody moving in time to the music. It seems well constructed and interesting lyrically.

My thoughts are, do it again, with a real drummer who can add a bit of real feel, but leave everything else as it is and you've got the makings of a great song. You don't need to pad it out with keys etc. and the guitar part is on-point.

Good Job

I'm with @Chris Spruit ....I LOVE it just as it is. The insistently driving beat hammers this tune home.

Love the way you sing it as well.

I really like the song, especially the vocals! I just feel that in some parts the vocals seem a bit too silent, like they are pushed too much into the background. What i mean starts around 1:00. In that part to me it feels like the vocals could use a bit more volume.

Besides that i really like the song  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Hi @Modestmouse1965/ (this nick is amazing!!)

Your song has a very recognizable and well defined style, and the rhythm catches you from the beginning without decaying. Good job. Maybe I would give the voice a little more volume ... The lyrics are good.
