Description
I never really wanted
a normal life
not what I saw
on television

I wanted something fast
I wanted
my life
to mean something
when it's gone

Now i'm barely holding on
Barely holding on

Every day I can
feel myself
slipping
away

Slipping away
Huntington is calling me
Today

I see my mother's
dead eyes
staring up at me

The last day
she was alive

Staring up
as if she was still alive
her brain destroyed
from the inside

Nothing inside
Just an empty shell

And they want me
to believe
in heaven
and hell

I'm barely holding on
I never wanted a normal life
Not what I saw on television

I wanted something fast
I wanted my life to mean something
when I'm gone

Now I'm barely holding on
Barely holding on

Every day
I feel myself
slipping
away

Huntington's is calling me
today
Calling me today

I see my mother's dead eyes
staring up at me
the last day she was alive
staring up
her brain destroyed

I like this...
... but let me say - bring up your vocal (confidence?), which I like. I think that would work for the better. Kudos...

sounds like a very good experimental style song
need a little more power with your vocals...

I like
that backwards sounding effect of the main music. But man, reading the lyrics and listening to your delivery made me sad as hell! I mean seriously. Are things ok?

Yes my friend
Thanks yes, I did this one like a year and a half ago after my mom's funeral the song is about what she was going through when she died from Huntington's disease. Thanks for the listens and concern!

Now I
see. I can tell you, you captured a pretty intensely emotional moment. It totally seeped out from the music.

Woah!
This is incredibly sad. It sounds like you had trouble delivering the vocal, which, given the subject, you most likely did. I lost my own mother three years ago. It's a terrible thing.

Excellent sir and much kudos for doing this.
