A song about people coming to your door and you can't hide from them. Then they drag you away.

Heaven was coming down to get me.
For a heathen like me man that's got me in a jam.
They say come down and find out who I am.
Concrete steps lead all the animals up to my door.
I don't like this free for all because I can't touch animals
Lest I anger them. When can I trust one.
Either way I don't want to hurt one.
Animals make me wary and in that shape who can talk to one of them.
I lock the door on them:
I turn off the TV to cruise my house one last time at all hours
I look out the window and guess what at last
They've crowded around me, the animals.
Wallpaper's brown, ants they're dragging me
to pay the price at the ruins symbolically
I've been cornered I wait breathlessly,
Heaven. Heaven.

You have a very distinctive use of vibrato that I quite like. It's sort of what Bob Marley used to do, but without the tone modulations, just the wailing. In the first verse is more noticeable, the second one is closer to a normal vibrato.

The breaks and the changes always come in unexpected places and go in unforeseeable directions and I quite like that as well. Is refreshing to hear someone playing what they want to play instead of trying to adhere to regular song structures. Kudos for that, lhude sing cuccu.

This threw me for a loop a couple of times -- 1:15-ish being a noticeable time.

I'd like to hear your voice out front a little more, I think -- you remind me a little bit of Jean Smith from Mecca Normal (video, for example), in attitude if not timbre.
