Thanks for the comments folks. Tyler and Yuri, I sing brilliantly in the shower or the car but i'm not going to be committing crimes against music on the internet for all to see! Check out the original song or the album it's from (Disintegration) as both are faves of mine. Melodic alternative goth pop.
