Description
Michael2 (Remember Michael?), the song originator, sent me the music to sing to 2 maybe 3 years ago, and I'd completely forgotten I did this.
I re-found it by when he mentioned it in a recent FB comment. I doubt he has the stems anymore, so I updated everything from scratch and sang new vocals.

Michael Marquesen: original composer.
Me: Synth (all sounds made with xilsLab Poly KB III)
AD2 prog, guitar, vocs.

Lyrics
Myopia
Michael Marquesen/Sam Dixon 2017

I could have been the
eyes sitting upon your face
fractured and blurred
I don't know

It may have been my mind tricked
into a display of utter illusion
Still don't know

I got no time for sorrow
dripping from windows
Still I don't mind
'Cause I don't feel a thing

And I won't wake up
turning the light s on
Don't make sense
since it's already bright

Can you feel it all come soaking in
Through the moist, silken lens
And don't know whether to close my eyes once more
When you look at me the way you do
I see it's true

I blame it on the near sight circling in chaos
like small bits of sand in the wind
Like some distant object faded to background
mirrors of death
And I'm leaving all the details to you
My myopia

Thanks Vic
Strange to hear 'Soft Cell' style associated with me. But I did try a completely different route with this song. Xils-lab synths are the first ones I've heard (though I haven't used THAT many), that makes me actually want to use it. And boy did I use it on this song, so I hear what you mean.

Very nice lyrics and your voice and synth set just the right mood.

I tried
to keep Michael's original feel, which was spacey and eerie. Everything else is different though. Well, the bass line is recognizable to the original.
Thank you bronco.

Eerie stuff, Sam. Not a dub follower but good music is good music in any style. The synths sound great and your trademark vocal layering and harmonies are classy as. Seriously impressive. The chameleon of MJ strikes again. Talk soon. Thanks.

Hey Peter
I've been messing around with keyboard sounds more and more. Learning a few things. I'm pretty sure this is about the most all synth song (tho I did add some 'chuck' and verbed guitar) I'll have for a while, but I enjoyed the experience.

Hi Char
Michael commented on a song I posted to FB, then mentioned that we had done a song together. I was a little baffled because I had no recollection at all. Then he directed me to his SC page to hear it. I remembered after that, and thought it was worth an update. Thus...

That was awesome, gentlemen!
I love dub, and the way it's handled here is excellent. I also dug the vocals, and the open feel to the structure. Nice work!

That's
very cool to hear, Bud, because this was my first attempt at the style. I wasn't very sure at all how it would come across. Michael's great at coming up with all sorts of odd, experimental sounds, but I hadn't really messed around that much. Gotta put your foot in the water some time.

I use
use an ancient history Oxygen8 for a keyboard. Just the right size for my one finger playing. Glad you listened, Tim.
