The Sunday Songwriters club is a stretching exercise for your mind. Arpeggios for the brain cells, so to speak. After all, writing is like playing - to get better, you have to practice.

Below are the words
[V1 Melody ]
V1
I thought...
I think...
There's more..
More what?

V1 [repeat]
I thought...
I think...
There's more..
More what?

[V2 Melody ]
V2
How? What?
am I?
I am?
I am! I am! I am.

[V3 melody]
V3
I think.
I am.
I am...
Alive
I am alive

V3 [repeat]
I think.
I am.

Alive
I am alive

Lead guitar is playing melody line. In places with words I am singing a couple octaves lower. There is also rhythm guitar doing 4 muted 1/16 notes on low E string then G on low E string then 4 muted 1/16 notes on low E string followed by A on the low E string. I have also using large band used a simulated beat machine to add some percussion tot he mix.

I look forward to your thoughts and critiques.

Hmm interesting. Im sure Descartes would have approved maybe his ghost does too :D .
For me this song has a Digital Birth theme, attaining life/knowledge if you will. I see it as that of a ghost becoming self-aware within the digital world of music, and therefore hits the brief, well done. In terms of a song you might want to make your fundamental point a little more explicit though, if its too obscure you’re in danger of losing your audience. Keep up the good work
Cheers
Paul
