It's really a bit to early in the process to post this but I'm so excited I can't help myself  :D :D :D
Loads of work left to do, things need to be re-tracked, mixing, ec. But still, there is a great song in there imho :-)

I can see why you're excited Jambrains - very catchy tune.. Sounds great for early in the process (and even later!!)...

Can you please post the lyrics so I can have a read...

Love this so far - what are you using for the instruments - so many of you are accomplished with virtual instruments, I'm always curious as to what you're doing. Love the piano and is that a xylophone too?

Fantastic stuff!

Thanks Zedd! This is actually the english version of that Swedish song I posted a while ago. I got some help from a guy in the US with the English lyrics and once done the melody was changed a bit, the break became a solo and so on. So it's more than just an English version but not quite a new song either.
The piano is EZKeys from Toontrack, a great,great tool for quickly getting some keybords parts going. Takes a fiar bit of tweaking after that to really fit the song but still much less consuming compared to learning to play the piano properly  ;D
The glockenspiel was a preset in som sample player which I partly played and partly programmed (the solo).
Drums is driven by JamStix (great tool once you figure it out and still needs some major tweaking from time to time) and sounds is from Steven Slate Drums.
Guitars and bass are the real deal  ;D

RUN UNTIL THEY CATCH YOU

You can run until they catch you
Doesn't matter in the end

Verse 1. 
Life don't take no prisoners
no mercy to be found. 
no remorse, no promises
Just our boots on the ground. 
   
The cold moon shines upon us
with eyes that cannot see.
Indifferent to the suffering
of the likes of you and me

CHORUS:   
You can run until they catch you
Doesn't matter in the end
You can hide but they will find you. 
to their will we all must bend.
 
So, draw that precious final breath
as your  life comes to it's end.
Ask yourself how you lived your life
What message did you send?   

Verse 2
We don't dare ask or question
what it is we're fighting for. 
They tell us what we "need to know."
They tell us nothing more. 

So, waste no time on bitterness. 
Don't think about revenge. 
And don't believe in anything. 
That your soul can't comprehend. 

CHORUS: 

SOLO + BRIDGE: 
For we are only soldiers -
our lives they can forsake.
And we're not allowed to ask
if there's a principle at stake. 

You can run until they catch you
Doesn't matter in the end

CHORUS:
Ours is not to reason why. 
Ours is not to ask. 
We are duty bound to keep
our eyes upon the task. 

So draw that precious final breath
though you know it goes to waste. 
How bittersweet the irony
of that final breath you taste.

Wow jambrains, I'm impressed! Very, very catchy tune, beautiful arrangement (like the guitars and piano), nice message in these great lyrics. Great singing and backing vox! RESPECT!!!
I have no suggestions on the instrumental parts. I have some suggestions on the singing. You have a nice sound in your voice, really recognizable, unique. So that's good. I think the english pronunciation could be improved. The backvox sound perfect to me. The lead vocals could use some variation in my opinion. For me they are too layed back, a little bit more excitement in this vocal part would help I believe.
Hope this gives you some hooks to work on. But man! You drew my attention with this song. Great work buddy! Go grab a virtual beer from me! MM
I'm proud of this track, check it out! https://soundcloud.com/martimedia/dreams

WOW JB! This is very impressive! I can see why you're excited about it :o If my finished versions were a good as this sounds, I'd be very happy :)

I love the intro and the chorus is very catchy :) Brilliant lyrics...very thought provoking :)

I would love to get hold of that EZ Keys software, as well as the drums...they sound great  8)

I can't wait to hear the finished track  :)
