  1. Hey again, thank you for your critique. Got to Got to, got to get right, Got to, got to get right, Got to get to you, To help me pull through, Breath in, to block it all out, Breath in, to end this long drought, Do not to freak out, Breathe in and shout, Yeah, Drink this, to drown in the night, One more to, vanish your doubt, Out comes the clues, I don’t remember those shoes, Yeah, Got to, got to get right, Got to, got to get right, Got to get to you, To help me pull through,
  2. I'm happy and sad to read that. I'm sappy. Thanks, I apologize for my humor.
  3. Thanks mate, Mike said...
  4. Hey again, A new demo recording including the additional verse, and some more minor adjustments to the lyrics. Thank you all for your contribution. Pep talk Calling all stations to gather your men, and tell them to prepare for the worst, the enemy's coming, he knows where we're hiding, our lines have already been crossed, our lines have already been crossed, Take this dear minute, reflect on your choices, forgive everyone you have known, you will all be heroes, when this is over, we'll say you courageously fought, we'll say you courageously fought, Now pick up a shovel, a stick or a stone, and stand for the cause that remains, our faith has been handed, but our minds are free, to act out our ideals till the end, act out our ideals till the end, Over the wire, an ocean away, a telegraph boy taps his hand, the words he is pumping, were ‘here by’ dictated, by men who have gone home to bed, by men who have gone home to bed,
  5. Revised lyrics. 18/6/17 Pep talk Calling all stations to gather your men and tell them to prepare for the worst, The enemy's coming he knows where we're hiding our lines have already been crossed, Our lines have already been crossed, Take this dear minute reflect on your choices forgive everyone you have known, You will be heroes when this is over we'll say you courageously fought, We'll say you courageously fought, Now pick up a shovel, a stick or a stone, and stand for the cause that remains, Our faith has been handed but our minds are free to act out our scene till the end, To act out our scene till the end, act out our scene till the end, Over the wire an ocean away a telegram boy moves his hands, The words he is pumping were ‘here by’ dictated by men who have gone home to bed, By men who have gone home to bed,
  6. Hey Mike, I think that's a great idea. I will try to work that in. Cheers
  7. Hey Jenn, Thanks for that, I kinda' like 'act our scene' but I will give the line another look over. I agree completely with your remarks on the sound. I will need to add more dynamic to the song. Thanks again
  8. Hey Philjo, Thanks for that, I will fix the beejesus out of those mistakes.
  9. Hey Pahchisme, Thank you for your critique, I really appreciate it. I like 'pep talk' as a title for the song I think it's a good contrast to the real subject. I repaired my grammar mistakes and I really like the line with 'Courageously' instead of 'Bravely'. Thanks for the lesson, and suggestions, Leo
  10. Hey mate, May I suggest a four track app (many out there) or even an actual four track tape. That will allow you to record the guitar and the vocals separately.
  11. Hey there Wallabie, Those are some pretty strong words for a small- or mid-sized macropod. Jokes aside, I like the flow of your song, and also the message. I can say that for me it stayed a little bit on the surface and I'm left with a desire to go deeper into the matter. Perhaps with an evolving chores ?... As is I think the chores can contribute more to the song. I enjoyed reading your song, thank you.
  12. Hey folks, Thanks for your critique. Temporary name - song is not about tiger balm... Tiger Balm Calling all stations to gather your man and tell them to prepare for the worse, The enemy's coming he knows where we're hiding our lines have already been crossed, Our lines have already been crossed, Take this dear minute, reflect on your choices, forgive everyone you have known, You will all be heroes, when this is over, we'll say that you bravely fought, We'll say that you bravely fought, Now pick up a shovel, a stick or a stone, and stand up for the cause that remain, For our faith has been handed but our minds are still free to act out the right scene till the end, Act out the right scene till the end, act out the right scene till the end, https://soundcloud.com/leosherman/tiger-balm
  13. 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,
  14. 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
  15. Hey Ruiqi, I would love to take a shot at it. Ill send you a first draft as soon as I can. Cheers
