Just a song written and recorded while I, noticeably, had a bit of a cold. Sorry about that. It's also a bit quieter than I would have liked.
Tells a bit of a story that you can interpret for yourself. Lyrics are below, but I usually like listening to songs before reading the lyrics. It's all about the unity.

Lyrics:
Took a walk to the shore,
Trying to find my way back home.
Came across a group of men celebrating life,
but mostly death.

Saw a young boy in a coffin
Fading into dust
He looked me in the eyes and said:

Follow me, follow me
Follow me, follow me
I go where no man dares but we all want to be
So follow me, follow me..

Took a step in his direction,
His lifeless eyes gazed back.
Said "Hurry up, they are waiting,
and you've come too far to go back"

I grabbed his hand as it crumbled,
Looked down and saw myself.

Follow me, follow me
Follow me, follow me
We go where no men dare but we all want to be
So follow me, follow me..

All that I am has been fading so fast.

Enjoy the interweaving of the melodies my man. Nice open ringing chords as well. I like a nice "sad bastard"-esque tune. This fits the bill nicely.

Cheers!

Cool and interesting story! I like ending part, it's nice, and great guitar work! Are Sin Fang Bous and Seabear influences for you?

Thanks! I've never actually listened to them so maybe I should get on that..

Nice lyrics. Some good guitar playing. Recording sounds like a live performance.
