This song is about the loneliness of the outsider, but I've left room for you to add your own thoughts and interpretations!
Almost all of the parts for this song came from two Band In A Box styles RealTracks as follows: Style: _SHINSYN.STY Praise & Worship Shining w/Synth Pad: Chugging guitar (R), Piano, Synth. Style: _SHINUPL.STY Pop Shining w/Uplifting Electric guitars: Chugging guitar (L), Bass, Jangling guitar
I used Addictive Drums for the drum part, and added the lead guitar solos and vocals. Soundcloud track: Here. Technical notes: Here.
The next song is going to be upbeat and happy, I promise!!

I’ve always been on my own; I don’t really mind. My journey is nearly done, my shadow is right behind. I closed my ears to the world and all its lies, When there was too much to see I just shut my eyes. Only I know how dark it feels, The pictures in my head will stay concealed.
I’m free to do what I like and say what I feel, I won’t bend to anyone: don’t expect me to kneel. I’ve done no one any harm or been the cause of pain, I just don’t understand the way people play these games. But it’s too late now, my fate is sealed. And the pain inside no one can steal.
What makes you think you can mend a broken man When so many others have failed to even understand? Who are you to say that life is just a dream? And with a touch of your hand I can be redeemed? Tell me something I can see is real: I have too many wounds for you to heal.
Wonderful. It has a Pink Floyd kind of feel to it that I adore. Muted power in backing, vocals, and lead that humanize the lyric for me. The video was a delight to watch as well.

Personally touching lyrics, I find some of myself there, also theme I have handled lyrically lately. Enjoyable band, guitars sound the way I really like. Nice intro, great soloing. Interesting chord progression. Vocals are mixed excellently. I hear several British influences from the seventies.
Every version release of Band-in-a-Box® adds loads of new features and enhancements to the program, which we're sure can sometimes get "lost" in your knowledge of the program's capabilities.
Looking to learn about new features with a specific release? It's actually really easy to locate this information!
Learn tips on the new version (2019) by visiting Help | Tip of the Day and placing a check mark next to "Only Show Tips for Version 2019" (you'll also need to select "Show Tips at Startup", if it's not already).
Access the new features list for older versions in the Help Index of the program - from the left-menu, choose Contents | Features and a list of New Features will show - all the way back to Version 7!
Special thanks to Mike and all the RealTracks Artists and PG Endorsers who stopped by. Stay tuned for our Booth Visitors and other happenings from Summer NAMM on July 18-20, 2019! If you find yourself at the event, come say "Hi!" to us at booth 234.
Band-in-a-Box® for Windows StylePicker Feature - Finding RealTracks & MIDI SuperTracks
Did you know... Within Band-in-a-Box®, quickly find styles that use RealTracks (or MIDI SuperTracks!) in a certain range by pressing the [Other] filter button in the StylePicker window and select "Styles that contain RealTracks or MIDI SuperTracks in a number range".
Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® will show you some helpful "Tips" when you start the program? What a great way for new program users to learn all the features of the program! Want to know Tips on just the latest version? This feature can be adjusted to just show the Tips for that too.
Maybe you're a long-time user of the program, and have this feature turned off? To access Tip of the Day (450+ available!), head to Help | Tip of the Day. Your Tip will appear right away - and you'll have the option of reading the Next Tip if you wanted too! Within this window is where you would also choose to "Show Tips at Startup" (if this is unchecked, you won't see them), or "Only Show Tips for Version 2019".
Here's a few Tips the program informed me of the last time I opened Band-in-a-Box®:
In the Piano Roll window, the 'Ghost Note' function allows you to view a single-channel, and see notes on all other channels display in light grey. This is useful when working with multi-channel tracks.
Want a bigger guitar display? Drag the bottom end of the Guitar Window to change its size, or press the SETTINGS button to set a custom size.
The Printout can use left and right MARGINS. This is useful to make printouts for small paper size or 3 hole paper that requires margins.
Edit | Nudge Chords/Melody. Let's say that you have entered a complete song chord progression, and you then realize that all of the chords starting at bar 23 are 1 beat to late. You can use this feature to slide your chords over by 1 beat.
Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows available in languages other than English? It's true - we have 10 other languages available for Band-in-a-Box® 2019! Head to www.bandinabox.com and you'll see a list of all our language options! This list can also be accessed by clicking on the "English EN" near the top right corner of our website.
