Description
"Although more than 3 out of ten soldiers meet the criteria for a "mental disorder", fewer than half of them receive help.... There is no well-coordinated or well disseminated approach to providing behavioral heath care to service members and their families and relatively few high quality mental health programs in the U.S. military... there are approximately 700,000 children in the US with at least one parent deployed on military service .... 4 out of 10 army and navy positions for active duty licensed clinical psychologists remain unfilled .. and only 10-20% of the military's clinical psychologist are trained to deal with post-traumatic stress disorder.... suicide and divorce rates are at concerning percentages."
American Psychological Association (APA)
"DoD is Neglecting Troops Mental Health"

Many thanks to michael2 for helping me find completion here. Michael added the wonderful bridge solos and other instrumentation on this version and was a real joy to work with. Indeed thank you Michael!

Tobin Mueller is also owed thanks for making me want to try a little harder.

Lyrics
Angst

my love
she talks to me
as i am lost inside the "want to be"
and it's closing in on me
why can't i be
what she wants to see

it's a mystery

she waits
so patiently
still the words don't come you see
now her silence returns to mine
and tells me
i have lost this time

it's a mystery
please don't leave me

don't leave me
i'm still here
i swear to god now i'm still here
you can't see me
because i hide
don't know why i'm so lost inside

it's a mystery
i'm so damn sick of me
please don't leave me

as i am lost inside the "want to be"
Powerful emotional stuff.

Thanks for this touching piece of work. The music and the samples are pretty stunning. The spaciousness of the instruments works well with the mood. The kids voice is a killer.

Your voice is excellent.

I'm sure it will effect all that hear it.

this turned out great, i had a lot of fun playing with your files, but you did all the hard work. really like the cinematic feel the samples give over the bridge. just a great song, it's like a sad Nillson song (only all you). anytime you want to bounce ideas off me, I'm game. great job.

Man, I am blown away by this
This is great. Your vocal performance on this is outstanding - you express the lyrics beautifully, with all those potent images and lines ("I'm so sick of me") The instrumentation is excellent - love the piano, and the percussion is very effective, not overdone or in the way. Great song, brilliantly executed. Kudos, my friend, and bows to Michael. Nicely done, gentlemen. Peace.

Spot on
Jack, I think you had the original posted at one time. It was powerful then, now it just really moves. You guys did a really fine job here. This song reaches right to the heart. It also sounds like it touches really close to home too. I guess all of us know at least one person so afflicted. Back in the Nam days it was all too common. Your writing and performance here make the song.
Keep the faith Bro,
Stephen

Angst. Very good.

Hi
my imagery is that the mind speaks but the body is weak it brings very sad images of a catotonic ? Skitzephrenic poorly person sat slumped in a hospital chair.-and someone is trying to comunicate with this poor wretched soul.

don't leave me
i'm still here
i swear to god now i'm still here
you can't see me
because i hide
don't know why i'm so lost inside

Peace
Dee

Very compelling....
Well done in all aspects... of all the recent songs about war I don't know that this issue that affects survivors has been addressed... Amazing that for all the things we do well how many other things we let slip through the cracks... gotta wonder why this isn't part of the plan...

Great job with the music and vocals guys!

drakonis said 3509 days ago (March 9th, 2008)
Ugh
Heavy hitting, really excellent work here. The music has an almost circus-like feel, an irony in itself... and the part that brought tears was the "Daddy? I love you daddy..." your singing and lyrics pull off the resigned weariness and desperate helplessness, but with a wish for help, that is heartbreaking. And it wouldn't be so bad if it weren't for the cold hard facts that this is so prevalent. And worse, that war has been doing this to people for thousands of years... so... there's no sign of let-up. Wow. Very powerful work Jack & Michael!
ttfn,
Drakonis

Jack - your originality and inventiveness
never cease to amaze me. The emotional message this song carries is so powerful and yet you manage to find a vehicle that delivers it without judgement or prejudice. That's a really rare quality and a special gift that you have. Hats off to michael2 for his contributions - he's an extremely talented generous spirit. I like the bits of orchestration and sound effects and the little gurl's voice works without being too much. A really well crafted tune you got here - and an important message.

incredible description
Sounds sad that there isn't enough help. My daughter is the manager of a social agency in Hayward Ca. and is upset with the government for not giving enough funding for the mentally disturbed that are walking the streets with out any help. Or in other cases very little help. She just received a big promotion to manager. It is interesting to hear how things are operated in these agencies and it always is very pretty.

Great pic!
