Description
Where have all the good mimes gone.
Not a slam on mimes. i had a friend who was a mime back the the 70's and early 80's. then he went into stand up comedy. sorry he was no robin williams.

Lyrics
i'm possessed i confess
i'm knocked down i am hexed
some times life ia a mess
what the hell i'm not blessed
always struck blindsided
when one ends one begins
i am paying for all my sins

chorus
i'm just a unemployed mime
i do nothing but whine
i'm just a unemployed mime
i do nothing but whine
brother can you spare a dime

i won't try to fool you
understand when i'm mute
in a cave in my rage
in my chains in my cage
shade of light even at night

chorus
i'm just a unemployed mime
i do nothing but whine
i'm just a unemployed mime
i do nothing but whine
brother can you spare a dime
i know you've heard that line

cynical of myself
in a funk wrap it up
i am tired of all that stuff
i complain how insane
realize just how insane
chorus
i'm just a unemployed mime
i do nothing but whine
i'm just a unemployed mime
i do nothing but whine
brother can you spare a dime

Cool concept...
and nice sounds. Gritty rhythm guitar is a delight. Awesome yet
understated leads. I really enjoy your vocal harmonies. Parts of this
remind me of the Kinks. One slight nit: seems like your timing is off in a
few places. Apart from that this is a fine piece of rock!

Be well!

Cool concept reply
thanks. this is my first attempt at a 7/8 verse with a 4/4 chorus and
trying a eastern feel. i definately needed a second set of ears. with the gtr
pedal synths it gets a little swirly in the head so i couldn't quit figure
where the glitches lay.

Very creative idea. I like the way it builds and you've got cool tones on
the guitars, rockin drums too. The eastern (middle eastern?) melodies in
the riffs are refreshing. Other than some hiss in the opening, solid mix
and production.

Thanks! i think the hiss might be on my vocals. i'll have to check that out
and add a gate. or maybe i have a hissy voice. i also realized a cymbal
crash has some hiss. thanks for being a second set of ears.
