My linksite:


Traveling on my personal journey in NLP and Meditation over two years now, I have found the door - door leading to the room of serenity in my head.
When grasping the fact of me being able to just boldly be me, this song - Get A Life - came out and literally used me as a device to make itself heard.
Let your own voice out - You are Special, You are Enough, You are allowed to be You.
Listen to your inner self as it speaks to you and deal with it properly.

Get A Life - lyrics

Video Intro:

It's your Mind here.
Realize, you are important.
You shall not be undermined by anyone.
GRASP the following.
...Injustice...Inequity...NOT present in your dice.
Release and let go. It's your birthgiven right to

Actual song:

Here again behind this wall of pain
My thoughts been thrown down to the drain
There you stand blaming me, the things I’ve not done
This is the moment showing me what’s wrong

What in hell should I supposed to do
Listening to a jerk who don’t have a clue
I gotta get out, I gotta get a life -

You just don’t have any grip on me
I can’t say I’m sad now when I leave
Starting now, I rule my life
My own life -

This world ain’t made to serve just only you
I’m not one of those you treat as slave
The bad spotlight, it shines now straight on you
Be my guest, clean your own mess

Beware the fury of a patient man (Quote from John Dryden)
That should be clear to understand
I’m out, I own my life -

Chain, torture, destroy, but you just can’t
imprison my mind – Yeah, Gandhi was right
I released it all, I gotta get a life
Get my own life -

During Solo:
... Oh Yeah... Watch it...
... Ha Ha Ha...
... Oh Yeah... Eat this...
... Ha Ha Ha Ha...

Knowing how sweet it feels to be free
How long it takes all others to see?
Just let go, release and get a life -

Never again there’ll be a strain on me
I’m ready to stand on my own two feet
Released it all, I’ve got a brand new life
Now I own my life -

I hope you like this tune! More shall follow in future ;-)

Be the better version of You every morning - and -
Be Grateful about the new day you have received.

The "personal journey/meditation" references set me up for something less aggressive, less angry, less dismissive and more compassionate than the lyric combined with music offer.
I also expected you to play bass but you've opted for BIAB to do that.
There're a lot of "slant/imperfect rhymes" in the text some work well other seem a little forced.

A solid song, the band is well augmented by your input - giving some more life and colour.
The video was disappointing. I had thought it'd be something else I suppose but a lyric video is fine and dandy.
You should pots this in the User Showcase section. You'll get more views and comments there.
I would suggest you visit prior to posting and listen/comment on a few people's work so you set yourself up for success.

Hello rayc!!! :-D

You reside approx. right opposite side of the Tellus than I here in Northern Europe.
Nice! Now I've been heard "all over the world" :-D

Thank you for your comments.

This Meditation etc. stuff I've done, has made me realize a lot of things in my life.
Eg. what has happened and why, on certain surroundings I've been.
I have not been "holding my side", I've let others to lead me too much.
So, that is maybe the feeling of "anger" you felt in lyrics.

Well, as said, this whole song just came through me - in just three days it was ready and canned.
One perspective that obviously is one driving force in this song is my friend, who died because of indifference and injustice of people around him.
That left a sort of anger deep into me. I've realized it now during the meditations I've done.

no more about that issue.

I didn't play the bass on that tune, because - in my point of view - it would have not brought any "added value" to the whole. The BIAB generated bass was very good already.
So, I opted to play one more extra guitar into the mix.
That sounded quite good in there :-)

About the rhymes and so...
As my mother language is not English, that probably brings some "weirdness" into lyric output. That sounds through my singing/pronouncing also, I believe. And yes, "Rock Brookhill" is my artist name, not my real name. It is actually a pretty direct translation from my real name - from Finnish directly to English.

What comes to the video, I've never done those before.
I searched and found OpenShot s/w from the net to do the necessary tasks.
As I don't have any equipment to do "moving pictures" nor any exellence in that area, I did the video like that.
Maybe later I learn and do real music video :-D

Like mentioned earlier, this is just my first everything - first "all done by me" recording, video, the whole song itself etc. and on top of that all: my first ever post in any forum ever :-D

Well, it all took me only nearly 60 years to get into this point... :-D :-D :-D

I'll go to see the User Showcase section as you suggested, rayc.
Do you think it would be ok just to post this same 1st post there?
