Lyrics
Frustrated by human kindness
Subjugate your kind to blindness
Fail to see what you won’t see
Can’t you be what you must be

Take my soul and hide behind it
Break the mold while I’m inside it
Hide confusion deep inside
Hide the rage behind my eyes

Am I free
Am I free to be
Am I free
Am I free to be
Am I free
Am I free to be
Am I free
to be what they tell me

Free us from
prosperity
Free us from
responsibility
Protect yourself
Fear our brothers
guard our kind
from the others

Free to choose
the choice they preach
Free to learn
what they teach
Light a fire for all to see
Spread the flames that set us free
Am I free
Am I free to be
Am I free
Am I free to be
Am I free
Am I free to be
Am I free
to be what they tell me

Marvellous synths!
Really cool track, great drumming and synth sounds. My
only crit would be that the vocals sound a little mixed
back and overwhelmed at times. This would sound
awesome with some vocal harmonies added. Great track

Marvellous synths!
Thanks stevel! This is still somewhat a work in progress. I can't seem to get a
balance in the vocals that I like. And i agree, it could use some backing vocals,
but again, I haven't really come up with anything I'd call a keeper yet. Thanks for
thaking the time to listen and comment. I'm glad you enjoyed the tune.

Some people are like big children, harming others without even seeing it. Staying angry with these fools is like being mad at fire because it burns.

Up for collab?
This tune has great potentials! The melody, the
arrengements and the synths are awesome. This vocals
are too, but as previous poster mentioned, they could be
brought forward at times. I also think that the synths
could be more in the center at times rather then the
drums. This is a very cool concept however, native indian
drumming vs. Ultravox? The lyrics and the overall concept
of the song is brilliant. Like you say yourself - semi-
angry - I don't per say her the anger so much but much
more of friustrations. If you'd like any collab going with
this song, I am all yours. Awesoem start that could grow
and become more awesome!!!

Thanks,

Mikki

PS. I already posted my votes earlier but got interrupted
and had to get back to give my comments.

Great set of lyrics. But calling this semi-angry is kinda like
calling someone semi-pregnant.

Yeah, I guess it is a little angrier than I originally thought. There seems to be a
lot of stuff that makes me mad these days. I can't wait until I can buy my on
planet and move there. Thanks for taking the time to listen and comment. I
appreciate it.

you are free
to be man,
liked the synths and the vox,
drums are working,
i did not like the mix all that much.
the drums are too loud and the synths
need a little more "beef", just my
opinion, still a cool tune though.

cheers

Thanks, katchoolik. Yeah, the mix isn't great. There's another mix coming,
hopefully it will be better. Thanks for listening and commenting. I appreciate it.
