My wife's brief interest in becoming an occupational therapist ended abruptly when she was assigned to one particular patient. He was a musician, about my age, and was struck by a drunk driver while riding his motorcycle. He lost use of his entire body with the exception of his left eye. That was it. One blink for yes, two for no. No other way to communicate. Had he lost his mind along with his body, one could argue that he wouldn't know he was suffering, and it wouldn't be as bad as being trapped inside a completely non-functioning body, utterly dependent on other people and machines to keep him alive.

She mentioned to me, several times, about the intensity in his gaze out of that left eye. She said it was like a fire burning within, full of rage and frustration and horror. She quit the program soon after, and I would have done the same. It's taken me several years to put this horrible tragedy to music, and my thanks go out to John and Dave for making this very personal song something quite special. Hope you enjoy it. Thanks for listening.

Jay

I can't tell you how touched I am that you asked me and let me in on this deeply personal project of yours Jay. I know how much this one means to you and I've just gota say I think you wrote one hell of a song here, congratulations. Dave M, you totally nailed this and made the lyrics shine. The stars are for your patient work seeing this track through Jay and I'd give you 10 if I could.

Amazing song. I love everything about it. Drums, guitars, bass, keyboard...and vox...oh my God that voice smiley

Simply Awesome....all the way through...also perfect to let the tune calm down again after that mind-blowing part where I thought my head was gonna drop to the floor after too much headbanging.

I love it. If this song doesn´t end up as #1 in about 5 minutes I´m gonna get pissed.

WoW , This is magnificent . When i started to read your description of what happened to the musician it over whelmed me! To listen to your music and read your words left me with a feeling of sorrow. To me, that's how music should be. It should always touch you in a way that makes you feel either happy, sad, etc. And for that reason, the three of you shine on this track. This is now my favorite of all songs on this site. Great Work. GHOST

Amazing song, incredible vocal performance.

My only cooment of this song is the drum loops .. in the quiet sections, the loops lack the feel of a real drummer... more of a comment on the limit of the use of loops. A real drummer would have made this song perfect in everyway, but a stand out track on icomps.

Guys I have to say that this is just stunning, such a sad and moving story, Dave's vocals really lift the emotion of the piece to incredibly high levels. To criticise this would be churlish and the only thing I could even comment on is that a real drum performance would be more sympathetic to the highs and lows of the song. Top notch musicianship in every way but by Dave's vocals are the absolute standout for me.

Masterful vocal work again, Dave! The song is great but I think your voice is a perfect match for this piece. Great dynamics, inflections, holds and slight grunges used where needed to work with the tune.

Who programmed the drums? I don't think I would have thought them loops or totally programmed without the mention. A real musician or drummer, probably knows? smiley

Great playing from the rest, too! Another favorite in my list. smiley

Thanks, everyone, for the warm fuzzies! I couldn't think of two more qualified artists that would have captured the passion and energy that this tune really needed. What gives me the feeling I'll never be able to collab with Dave again, since he'll have so many others wanting him to sing on their tracks? As it should be! Hats off to both John and Dave for their work. Had it not been for iComp, this tune would have never left my head, so there's a bit of cartharsis in being able to share it with you. Appreciate your comments! Jay

I usually avoid the Top Ten because I stopped trusting its value.
But I accidentally saw the big write up as my cursor hovered over the song title and here I am out of curiosity.
I must say the performances are fantatsic and the song is really, really excellent.

As to the background story...
The way I see it, I guess there's a very good reason why medical interns sneeringly call motorcylists 'organ donors': The guy wasn't the drunk driver; the truck driver was - yet who ends up paying in buckets of pain...? The guy on the motorbike. See, I'm really prosaic and it doesn't turn into a song, but with you, you've made the same material into a riveting song, so props to you Ignoramus!

This has to be the most downer song I have ever heard; and in lesser hands would have been a total pain to listen to...Because you have taken the care to execute the song so well and professionally, you have elevated the material to an illumination on the human condition, and how the hand of fate can touch anyone of us. In rare cases, art and music transcends earthly limits, and falls into the realm of magic. You have created some powerful, sorrowful, painful, tragic, magic that deserves respect, contemplation, and perhaps most of all, a prayer for the soul of the person you are singing about....Peace, Norman

Absolutely wonderful. Truly a professional work. I'm genuinely moved. It's a true testament to all of us here on iComp that we are able to write music of such a higher calibre than most of the crap that's pumped into radios and music stores.

I love the bridge section. The song is a genuine journey. It's also unique in it's sound.

Definitely one of the best songs on the whole site.

Time to listen again, and again.

Is there some reason why, through the difficulties of others, or our own, should we even end up capable of expressing them, form the basis of the most amazing stories we could hear? Whether the stories are spoken or sung is irrelevant. This is simply an amazing one that I have finally got around to listening to. Frankly, I was too 'embarassed' of myself to do so before. Now, I can only thank you for putting this before me, for there, but for the grace of God, go both you and I, my friend.

repetative? my @SS! my @SS! my @SS! my @SS! my @SS! my @SS!

this song was everything that it should be, and drives the point home enough to almost make a desensitized MF such as i feel moved. not by the story, but how devoted everyone seems to tell it... the PASSION!

quality stuff, the whole way round, you get a favorite for a wonderfully produced and played lament. QUALITY.

Life is so precious....as is this track. I nearly died bodysurfing and can relate to this (tears swell up as I listen) I was in hospital for a long time and was told by many that I would not walk.....here I am walking. Beautiful track!!

the first thing I notice is the passion in the well sung vocal... and the story is well told... and a little hard to get through, as it should be... this is not a quality issue... it's a humanity issue... I can't watch any of those shows where people get injured..

the "mental inventory" section is terrifying and perfect... I can feel the silent scream rising...

then followed by complete resignation, as the song winds down... ouch

excellent

I just came across this thanks to offbalance's link in the forum. I can really relate to this as I am an Occupational Therapist working exclusively with people who have suffered (often severe) brain injuries. It can be very challenging to try and help people (and their families) through the immense sense of loss that accompanies such a life-changing event. I can understand your wife's decision that O.T. was not for her, although it can be quite rewarding.
Enough of my baggage, though. This song is very moving and well performed, and I applaud you for taking on a tough subject matter. It was tastefully done.

Thanks to Maco for steering me this way on the chat line. A profound tragic tale and a moving expression through music. Emotional impact elevates art to the level of the sublime. In reading through the comments I see people not only are coming back time and again, but leaving their comments--a measure of how moving the song is.
This is a case of Locked In Syndrome. There was a book and movie called "The Diving Bell And The Butterfly" where a former French fashion magazine editor, Jean-Dominique Bauby, is stricken by a brain changing event. He wrote the book one painstaking letter at a time by blinking when the correct letter was reached when being recited by his scribe. Like this song it is an amazing book. We should all appreciate all that we have!
