Lyrics

You are not immune
You'll find another tune
To keep you up at night
And when you turn around
To face the battleground
Remember to hide your face

When you leave, don't forget your keys
The locks are changed when you are asleep
And when you leave, the memories are free
To turn into another distant dream

Don't follow me too soon
I'm lost inside the Moon
And the stars are really bright
And if you run aground
Just listen for the sound
Of fireflies in outer space

When you leave, don't forget your keys
The locks are changed when you are asleep
And when you leave, the memories are free
To turn into another distant dream of me

This song has such a cool kinda creepy vibe - the organ synth (and pitch changing), the dissonance, the ascending and descending bass, and your vocal melody. It's giving me Phantom of the Opera vibes actually. Almost like it is intended to trick the "you" in the song. Really interesting tone and vibe - quite captivating. It is cool listening to the instrumental track and picking out the sounds that gave it this vibe. Your vocals are fantastic - love your tone and vocal styling. I also like how you placed the vocals in the mix. It is also so cool watching you play! I really enjoyed your song.
