 My real problem would be with the squeaky bits that you've got going along with
the massive guitar thrummy stuff. They just don't seem to be part of the same
song. I like the massive guitar thrummy stuff... the other sounds throw me
off. Maybe if you were to morph between the two somehow or toss in a
transitional sound?

 I like the song... I've been in more of a feedback/early Tangerine Dream mode
myself lately but I think what  you've got is put together really well.

 See these tears so blue. An ageless heart that can never mend.
 Tears can never dry. A judgement made can never bend.
 And I've been putting out fire with gasoline...
