This demonstrates where the lines go. Singers can use this as a guide. The melody is not specified. However the lines were written specifically to line up with the music as here. Placement of instrumental parts, such as intros, solos, etc., is beyond me.

Hi, before I heard this I was thinking that your lyrics spoken, as opposed to being sung, might work. I think your voice sits well with this.

Maybe you guys would prefer it to be sung though ?

It really has something when the lines are spoken, and your voice really works quite well. Thanks for the guidance! There are a few places, though, where I think that it might work sung better than spoken, e.g. on "retribution.... (long pause) road". To me it sounds as if you'd have to give up on the exact rhythm when performed spoken, or rather sing it with somewhat more emphasis and dynamics. I would like to contemplate a spoken verse/sung chorus structure as well.

Oh no! I hate my voice. But I like the idea to a point. You have rich and wonderful musical interplay. I?m afraid it would be reduced to background music for a poem. However, a speaking voice used sparingly could add interest. -You can create a bridge simply by doing verse 3 In spoken word. - Additionally, the chorus repeats twice. It can be sung the first time, then have a speaking voice mixed in underneath to build intensity. (Just ideas. And please use someone who specialized in narration - not me.)

I agree, I will have to restructure the song to a degree making space for either sung or spoken words but since there is still some repetition in the arrangement that can be thinned out, I'd like to think that balance is achievable. Good ideas on the arr - will consider. And no worries - I won't put you on the spot as a singer! :)

Sometimes I have no idea what I?m talking about. Disregard half of what I say and ignore the rest.
