Hi all,

Used some lyrics I wrote for a song with different music and fit to a new song idea.  Heavily influenced by my favourite band AIC.  Feedback welcome on this first draft:

HUMAN REMAINS
(Words by Jonathan Linton, Music by Jonathan Linton)

Your metamorphosis is going to plan
Remove compassion as much as you can
Your lust for wealth’s your one true love
And the term mother ###### fits like glove

Driven by materialistic gains
There’s nothing left, no human remains
Heartless soul, ice runs through your veins
And no remorse, no human remains

How’d you get yourself in this mess
Such an #######, and such a success
All your friends you say are bona fied
When you’re in crisis will they be by yourside

Driven by materialistic gains
There’s nothing left, no human remains
Heartless soul, ice runs through your veins
And no remorse, no human remains

You think it’s just a game
But you sold your soul
Sold your soul for fortune and fame

Driven by materialistic gains
There’s nothing left, no human remains
Heartless soul, ice runs through your veins
And no remorse, no human remains
No human remains
No human remains

Not my kind of music, but I liked it. Very clever hook. Good production too. Love that bit at the word “fame” at 2:32.

Cool I like it! Kind of Ozzie meets Alice in chains.

OK Jonathan. I listened to this a while back and meant to comment but got pulled away and never did. So I’m back now and listening again. Really cool tune man. This is very heavily influenced by AIC (one of my favorite bands as well). The only thing I would be concerned about is that maybe it’s too similar to AIC, but then again this song is really cool dude so I wouldn’t change a thing. Just be ready for people to tell ya that it sounds like an AIC song!
