Unyielding

Description
Brand new version of my "Unyielding" song with me on vocals/synths/bass. Followed everyone's advice on here and other places. Added more reverb to the vocals, fixed the synth's bass clipping, and other tweaks. I think I finally got the post production right. Big thanks to everyone who has commented! Was going to use the vocals as another instrument to counterpont the others when I started this song, but decided to make the vocals the centerpoint instead of another instrument because people here said the lyrics I wrote/sang were powerful and should be heard. I think they are right. Hope you like it! -Chris

(This is a song about having thoughts of suicide every day but not giving in to them like so many of my friends have, being "Unyielding" to the thoughts. I don't usually do vocals songs but this poem had a lot of meaning to me when I wrote it. Lyrics are down below so you can read while you listen if you can't hear them.)

Lyrics
"Well I've been holding back all these tears
for all these years
and can't hold back much longer
i'm about to let it go
but I never give up
I am unyielding

Every day I see no empathy
no sympathy
from the humans
I try my best
but they don't listen
to me

Now i'm starting to see
the truth
everything our fathers told us
was a lie
the older I get
the more i realize
nobody knows what they're doing
and neither do i
neither do i

Not sure what i'm doing
on this planet
any more
I'm about ready to leave
but only if she comes with me

The only one I've ever loved
blew what i had with her long ago
she doesn't know
what I'm feeling now
because I drove her away
with my anger
and my rage
and now she's turned away
now she's turned away

Every day I add another pill
and lose more of my will
to stick around
been looking for an answer
and nothing is found
all I have is my sound
that is my life
the space between my ears
where I create love

Nothing else matters to me
I'm running out of time
to finish my symphony

Every day I notice my brain slipping
away
but it's getting easier
to stay
because my love for her grows
instead of fades
maybe if I write a song good enough
she will come back to me

Chorus:
I never give up
i am unyielding
i never give up
i am unyielding
never give up
i am unyielding
never give up
i am unyielding
never give up
never give up
never give up
I am unyielding"
