Lyrics
Is anybody in there
Do you hear me speak
Can you feel me near to you
Can you be what I seek
Are you that emotionless
Were you aware you cringed
When I sat beside you
Did you mind become unhinged
Did you know you made me sad
Did you know it hurt
to watch you all locked up
When I’d seen you flirt
Are you truly without emotion
Do you know I bleed
When you cannot see me
Do you know my need
Did you ever feel me
If only in a glance
While our minds were elsewhere
When we did that dance
Did we breath together
One night in our sleep
Was there some confusion
Now baby - did it feel too deep
Are you that de-sensitized
You cannot look me in the eye
Is it really that time now
for us to say goodbye

Now that's soulful! The backer is so thick and smooth. Nice vocal layers. I like the echoing background vocals. Great production and mix. Downloaded!

Thanks Alackbass ....
... the backer IS thick and smooth ...I think there are others who are gonna have their own little "tinker" on it ... I can't wait to hear how others will interpret Tokai's piece.

Very cool song. I love all the whispered lines. Steve is the man! His backers are always top notch. Great job Alannah, always love your vox!
Alannah said 2443 days ago (January 16th, 2011)
Thanks Carrie ....
... the whispered lines were representative of all the external stimuli that people with autism live with all the time and which they cannot filter out .... and YES Steve IS the MAN !

Excellent
I am really happy that you choose that subject matter and put a vocal to this. I love that photo too, powerful and provoking like the lyrics. The contrast between the spoken and sung words works well.

Powerful
Powerful song Alannah. The layered vocals and whispered lyrics really shines a spotlight on what things must be like for people living or working with individuals with this condition. Steve's complex sound bed supports the song sentiment perfectly. Congratulations. Regards, Peter.

Alannah said 2443 days ago (January 16th, 2011)
yes Peter ....
I tried to capture a lot of the elements of autism in this song ... some are obvious ... others are sort of melded into the piece as a whole .... and are perhaps a little more interpretative ....

Touching
Steve's track is just hauntingly beautiful. Alannah, your idea for the song is a great one. Sad, especially that so many can relate. Terrific vocals too, great stuff!

Thanks Ravens ....
... I know many people with Autism ... some children ... some teens ... and some adults .... and from all ends of the Spectrum from extremely high functioning to severely impaired .... it's almost become a phenomenon how many people are now being diagnosed in the Spectrum .... there are many articles which blame vaccines ... but I don't believe that vaccines are responsible ....

It's true ....
I was definitely hearing those little Jefferson Airplane bits in there myself (white rabbit) which is likely why I took a shine to it right off the bat .....

Moody and atmospheric. That verbed bass washes across the whole composition. If you hadn't said it was about autism I would have thought it was about a garden variety insensitive guy. Great backer, well sung.

what a wonderful blend of sound and talent. This is excellent.
Alannah, killer vocals. The backing part at 2:20 - 2:28 was very cool.

... I will need to re-visit 2:20-2:28 and see if I can put more of THAT in other tunes that I do ... hahahaha
