Lyrics:
Look at me now
I've been doing well for while, somehow
everything has been going according to plan
but I'm just a man facing hell on my own
with just my two hands and this microphone
I've been finding my voice, and it hasn't been easy
Nobody's given a choice, but still the other boys teased me
For singing my songs out the best that I could
as though they could teach me, that I'd never be good

You put me down to try to rule me
but your insults only fuel me
You can't convince me that I've been fooling
myself because it's been truly
awe inspiring to see
myself improve and grow to be
the type of man to overcome
the critical reception

If you think that my songs are wasted
cause my voice is bad, and my chords are basic
Keep in mind that I do best
Though, maybe I'm not blessed with the
skill of writing rhymes that kill and
timing beats so prime to fill
dead air with master lines that
blow your mind and will
coincide with what the people feel inside

But at least I will always try,
I don't deny myself that pride
And so when people talk their shit
Spouting crit-icisms, not constructive one bit

I'll admit that it's hard to adhere to it,
hard because I feel that it
is a part of me, let free,
for everyone to see
on the internet and in the industry

You put me down to try to rule me
but your insults only fuel me
You can't convince me that I've been fooling
myself because it's been truly
awe inspiring to see
myself improve and grow to be
the type of man to overcome
the critical reception

Neat little harmonies in this one, Xack! I would personally like to hear little more texture, though it seems like you are going for a minimalist, or lo-fi production value.

Very clever lyrics, for sure. I even feel like you could go for a more upbeat tempo. Sounds like a 120, maybe go for 160... Hopefully mine is constructive criticism!

Thanks for this,
Shoham

Thanks for the feedback. I completely agree - I think that all 4 of my new uploads are a bit empty. Unfortunately, I don't have all of my equipment so these recordings are just vocals and guitar. I'm hoping to re-work them at some point and add some percussions and other instrumentals... when I have the tools.
