Here's some new lyrics, I'll probably get a video up when my guitar gets here.

"I'm an innocent victim
of a blinded batter
The confetti falls to the ground
I'm hanging from the tree
where you strung me
my colours blowing in the wind

But I won't let you bring me down
this time around
But I won't let him bring me down
this time around

Just watching the sunset crawl
Waiting for the light to fall
Old Scratch is bringing me down
He says that I'm not allowed
To kick and scream and shout
when I need a hand

But I won't let him bring me down
this time around
But I won't let him bring me down
this time around

Sitting on that cross stitched line
the trains gotta on time
I got up and fell on my sword
I've learned there's no sweeter sound
than one lost and found
A sinner coming to the Lord

I pray to the angels
to come take me home
I pray to the angels
to come take me home"

Heres a little insight to what its about (from my perspective)

Verse 1:
Its about a relationship i was in awhile ago using the image of a pinata, I never really got over it properly and lots of stuff was left undealt with, left "hanging where you strung me" she didn't really know what she was doing (like most teenage girls i guess) hence "blinded"

Verse 2:
this verse is more spiritual, "Old Scratch" is an old folklore name for the devil. sometimes he brings me down and tries to stop me from calling out for help.

Verse 3:
"Cross stitched line" is a train track, if you didn't catch that. to "fall on your sword" is a way of lightly saying suicide. I think it's interesting because that phrases origin is biblical, which goes along with the theme of the verse.

Really good I like it, before you started singing there was a moment I felt you slowed down slightly then sped up to catch up to the beat. But it was still good, I'd rather hear someone play something with a lot of feeling than like a metronome at its upper limits.

The lyrics were great as well, nice work.

I really like the song! Best of your arrangements so far. I think your voice has a great potential, but you still need to work on it. But do a few exercises on a regular basis and I'm sure it will be really amazing!
Thumbs up!

Thanks!

I'm pretty okay with my voice, I know it could use improvement, but most of my favourite musicians, the likes of Conor Obest, Tallest Man on Earth, Bob Dylan, etc, would be frowned upon by "Proper" vocalists. I don't want to be a prettyboy singer, I like rough edges. If a song is about suicide I don't feel it would be right to sing it perfect
