    This is a song idea I had dormant for a while without vocals. I finally figured out something for the vocals and recorded them did a rough mix. I tried out EZX Metal Machine on this and think it works well.

    Feedback welcome on the mix and/or sound.

    JONATHAN LINTON – THE SYSTEM
    (Words by Jonathan Linton, Music by Jonathan Linton)

    Those in power have us under control
    Live mindless souls livin’ in a fishbowl
    You can fool some people some of the time
    You can’t fool all people all of the time

    The time has now come
    Enough! We are done
    Social media’s won
    Change has begun

    We will fight against
    We will oppose
    We’re tired and we’re worn
    But we’re fighting the system
    Broken bureaucracy
    We will dispose
    A new day will dawn
    From fighting the system

    Enjoy your fat happy life while you can
    Beginning of your destruction has began
    Smart phones in hand, there’s a wildfire protest
    Burning desire to not be oppressed

    The time has now come
    Enough! We are done
    Social media’s won
    Change has begun

    We will fight against
    We will oppose
    We’re tired and we’re worn
    But we’re fighting the system
    Broken bureaucracy
    We will dispose
    We’re tired and we’re worn
    But we’re fighting the system

    SOLO

    We will fight against
    We will oppose
    We’re tired and we’re worn
    But we’re fighting the system
    Broken bureaucracy
    We will dispose
    A new day will dawn
    From fighting the system

    I don't know man, it sounds like it has phase problems in the Highend. It can be soundcloud's convertion... (wouldn't be the first time)
    Other than that, the guitars are nice the song seems a bit slow for the vocal.. or is it that the vocal need more agressiveness ??
    Nice song, try to find out if your version sounds anything like soundcloud's
