Lyrics
Fiji
I’ve been waiting all my life just to tell you yours is a lie
I’ve watched you on television, seen your birth and seen you cry

But now it’s likely
You could spite me
Never was on time anyway
That was yours and mine… always

Lights are falling from the sky and you don’t even know why
You wake up your father’s gone and plots dictate when he’ll arrive
I hope the muses stay decisions of who will live and who will die
Dad comes back the marriage lacks and all you think of is an island

But now it’s likely
You could spite me
Never was on time anyway
That was yours and mine… always

Lost at sea your vitamin D supplements the real sun
Unos pro omnibus, omnes pro uno
Maybe we’re all just characters prisoners sail off into the setting
and resetting sun, On the Santa Maria

I’ve been waiting all my life just to tell you yours is a lie
I’ve watched you on television seen your birth and seen you die

But now it’s likely
You could spite me
Never was on time anyway
That was yours and mine… always

For starters...
I don't care for the mix...vocals are too far back. I would also like to hear a little more work with the guitar sounds...they don't blend as well as they could. All that said...I LOVE THIS SONG. Seriously, you guys have something here. Why it would be easy to say you're just following the current stripped-down rock trend, you do it well. This song should get you noticed, and a good engineer and producer could put you on top of the world. I'm going to listen to the other tune you've posted. Good luck, guys. You've got something special.

RE: For starters...
Yeah, we recorded this in one take live, and mixed both songs in 10 hours, so it
obviously is far from perfect. We were kind of pressed for time because we had
to record a demo for a local festival that we wanted to be considered for. In a
while, we will maybe rerecord, but definitely remaster and remix it.

Great song
The recording/mix is pretty rough, too boomy, a little overdriven on
the bass & vox (even though the vox was a little too far back.) The
guitar and singing could be tuned a teeny bit...

BUT...

the songwriting, song structure, lyrics, choice of chords, drum-playing,
layering of instruments, cool synth parts, fun ending... this is a gem of
a song, really could be awesome if recorded & played more cleanly. It
reminds me a lot of Electric Light Orchestra, so, I like it :-)
ttfn,

Post prom
you guys are playing at post prom right? It'll be cool to see you all preform live. how many songs do you have in your set?

Post prom
yes we are playing at post prom.

we have many songs, but it looks like to fill our time slot, we will only play 6.

most of our songs average between 4 1/2 and 5 minutes long.

they will be the best 6 songs of your life.

i would tell you the set list, but that would just ruin all the fun, wouldn't it?

and by the way, who are you?

Rough mix is secondary
to the song itself.

Nice David Burne meets ELO. Jams!

Rock On!
