Lyrics
I walk down the gravel road
And cross the swollen creek
One step becomes another
A day becomes a week

I'm so tired of the world
You know it treats me like a slave
Here trees sing to me
Play their strings for me
A song for everything I gave

The water cools my mind
The sun. it warms my heart
The stones hold me like a lover
Why do we have to be apart

Stars burn into my soul
Clouds call to me in sorrow
You know I'll take them when I go
When I leave tomorrow

Soul.
And this piece has it. Reminds a bit of Lenny Kravits, and a little bit like Stone Temple Pilots. The vocals are great, and the playing is solid across the board. Only thing is that i feel the mix is just the teensiest bit thin. But that's just me--I like a lot of bottom end.

This is a great track that more people need to listen to.

thanks
Thanks Pooey! Yeah, my mixing is a little all over the map. Man, you can mess with stuff forever. I may try a remix to take your advice on the bottom end. Appreciate your comments, and critique. And you have the unprecedented honor of being my first fan. Just started on this site last night. MacJam is a cool spot.

more
Vic,
Yup, more coming soon. I am remastering a couple things. I found that my mixes are a little quiet compared to other stuff I have heard on this site. It seems GB (it looks like about 3/4 of the folks use that app here) mixes things VERY hot. I am also kickin up the hi and low end EQ of a couple things. Still taking notes and trying to learn, ya know?

...Very much! This tune flat out rocks! Nice vocal harmonies. Love the way it started of with the acoustic bits and then, just ripped. Good job. Love the album art too.

Three fans! That's criminal! Well add me to a short list with great taste! This rocks with a singable pop melody. Reminds me of the Meat Puppets! Great production and mix!

I went to school for the fine arts, painting, and taught that for a while, but I am now a graphic design executive by day, and a musician most the rest of the time. I play guitar and bass mostly, do midi synth stuff, use drum machines ... [see more]
