  1. A revision to the lyrics: Any thoughts? Motions I am going through the motions, Not quite sure what lies ahead, being pulled from out the ocean, into a soft fine graded sand, You can see I am devoted, Though I very easily break, I'm a mass in a direction, Made of many O's and H, I have come here to expand, This will never be your land, It's the runaway train game, I will change in a splash, Bet you didn't think that, Mother will strike back, I've got temper that is rising, And a belly full of ash, My heart burns with a desire, To spit out all that I have, I am toxic I am wired, To erupt at any stage, While you learn to play with fire, Let me show you how to burn, I will toast your little islands, This will never be your land, It's the runaway train game, I will change in a flash, Bet you didn't think that, Mother will strike back,
  2. Hey Jen, Here's my 2 cents, hope it helps at all. Some are natural born performers, most are not. That doesnt have to affect ones ability to get on a stage and sing. The one fail proof way to do so, and get better at it, is to perform when ever you can. I wont sugar coat it, you might fail to bring your full potential to the table the couple of first times. And you will probably have moments when you feel akward and insecure and regret the whole thing. How do you handle that? Well, accept it for what it is. It's ok to fail. You will get better and more confident. Don't care about others opinion of how well you did, those are irrelevant. Shut that critic voice in your head by telling it "well, im doing my best, go away you #/*@$&$&"). Remember you are a true hero for putting your feelings to text and have the courage to share them. Rock on... B.T.W - your music is very cool
  3. Hey Ruiqi, I would love to take a shot at it. Ill send you a first draft as soon as I can. Cheers
  4. Thanks mate, I will start thinking about more roles, rythem and such. Any one know a cool drummer in Melbourne?
  5. Thanks mate.
  6. Hey mate, Thanks for that. I am planning on re-recording the song after improving the lyrics. Haven't really thought about the production yet. I am open to any ideas. 1+1 is guitar and vocals as I learned here.
  7. Hey there, This is motions, a song I'm working on. The lyrics, I'm not sure if I have taken a good direction. Any critique appreciated, * The demo was recorded before I wrote the second verse. Cheers, Motions I am going through the motions, Not quite sure what lays ahead, being pulled from out the ocean, into a soft fine grated sand, You can see I am devoted, Though I very easily break, I'm a mass in a direction, Fuelled with many O's and H's, I can get you more than wet, You use me to take your bath, It's the runaway train game, I will change in a splash, Bet you didn't think that, Mother will strike back, Iv'e got temper that is rising, And a stomach full of ash, My heart burns with a desire, To spit out all that I have, I wipe-out entire cultures, That don't know when it's too close, While you humans play with fire, I will show you how to bake, Come to play a little longer, This will never be your place, It's the runaway train game, I will change in a flash, Bet you didn't think that, Mother will strike back, https://soundcloud.com/leosherman/motions
  8. Hey mate, despite my bad joke on my above post, it is still relevant if you are interested. G'day
  9. Hey Ken, I think your song sounds cool. I can suggest to bring the guitar more front stage. And ease a little of the affects. And also I would go for more natural singing. Best of luck
  10. It is a bit messy. But imagine if you were higher it would have hit you straight in the head.... joking. Thanks.
  11. Thats a great idea John. I love slide guitars.I'll add that on, Thanks.
  12. Hey there, Here is a 1+1 demo for the above lyrics. I would appreciate any comments. Thanks https://soundcloud.com/leosherman/brand-new/s-7XIAn
  13. Fixed, Thanks
  14. Hey Sreyashi, Thanks for your comments, Those certainly are good questions. I need to have a thinker on that one, 1. your'e definitely right. 2.Yep that sounds better. 3.I like it as well. I feel I went the 'wrong way about' with those lines. Thank you very much. There's a demo coming.
  15. Lyrics written, just now, to a melody I'm working on for the past couple of days. Thanks for listening, thanks for commenting, Brand new What ever I find, I try to forget, To wake every day, Brand new, Keeping this way, I could leap through my days, Not taking the past, With me, I used to pretend, To not miss the blues, That's why I have failed, Again and again, and here in the end, all I will say, I hope we will meet, Brand new, And time went on by, But I stayed the same, I tried to change you, You wouldn't, You kept it all, No matter how small, Rolled it up in a ball, To play with, I used to pretend, To not miss the blues, That's why I have failed, Again and again, and here in the end, all I will say, I hope we will meet, Brand new, So I take my turn, Trying to learn, To take but a piece, With me, To wake every day, and try to let go, Of worries or foe, Beat them, I used to pretend, To not miss the blues, That's why I have failed, Again and again, and here in the end, all I will say, I hope we will meet, Brand new,
