Description
Based on an interesting radio program I heard, about Carl Jung's until-recently unpublished "Red Book" or "Liber Novum".
I got the title wrong when I started it, but I'll just keep it that way....

Lyrics
I believe this should be the very last page
cuz it's getting late and I've been scribbling for ages
look at all the crzy ink yes indeed
I should stop before I sink and bleed out
this is the new book
this is the red book
it just kinda wrote itself right from the start
but what would ya think of me now
if you knew what's spilling out of my heart
you might reckon that i'm falling apart
lines and colours, circles and wheels
when you see how it looks you will know how it feels
instead of birds and trees I see big freaky eyes
its time for me to go outside now
this is the new book
this is the red book
it just kinda wrote itself right from the start
but what would ya think of me now
if you knew what's spilling out of my heart
you might reckon that i'm falling apart

Alec67 rocks!
That riff is killer, and I love the crunchy sound AND separation yer getting on those rhythm guitars man.

Interesting concept (to me, the resident bookworm anyway...). Vocals and harmonies are very cool. (Like mid-60's garage bands.)

Another great tune for your upcoming album!

Be well friend!

Jung bloods
Read about this, too. Would not have guessed it would beget THIS song in a million years. Very cool. Love the guitar harmonies/overtones. Cool melody over killer riffage. Love your brand of pop, bro!

Cool rock sound

Let's Active and dB's
for some reason I've never heard Let's Active... although I've read lots of good things about them. I'll have to seek out some of their music. I do like the powerpop.

Since I don't get Jung
this one escapes me. But the music part dose not, and that part I do understand. And this is musically very good,

Jung
I don't know anything about Jung either LOL! If I remember correctly, and what I heard was accurate, he spent years working on a book filled with crazy pictures and daydreams. He only showed it to a small number of people and didn't publish it in his lifetime because he was concerned people would think he was nuts. The story appealed to me because I don't play my songs for anybody, because I'm concerned they might think I'm nuts. That's it in a nutshell!

reckon that i'm falling apart
sloan! love that power pop sound dude but really like the way it's just a little off of bright...it's trying to get out of the garage but just...can't...seem...to...reach...the...door. jung would say that you've got more than a bit of the trickster in you. love all the raw buzzing and squealing. those sounds are what the electric guitar was made for. fun tune as always dude.

I hate
that we live in a world where record executives aren't stumbling over themselves to make you a millionaire. Killer music with left field themes. I was thinking today how I want to check out your songwriting book and steal some of what you've got going on. Inventive and tells a story, but not enough to give everything away. Makes me want to research it out, which is a favorite past-time of mine.

thanks
for wishing riches upon me. I think it's pretty cool to have any listeners at all!
"songwriting on guitar" by rikky rooksby is one of my all-time favourite books. although I hear from your recent post that writing on piano can produce great results!

elvis C ....

Paul Stanley Cool
Sometimes when you sing, I picture Paul Stanley (Love Gun Tour) flinging his guitar and looking way too cool. Yeah, it happened again, although this is no KISS song.

You have a great guitar sound and you have classic rock stylings that are everything a rock song needs.

Vocals sound good on this too. Chorus is really melodic and sweet. I was kinda kinda air guitaring to this, so I didn't really read the lyrics, but I see them.

Another download,

Thanks,

Bob

LOL
I am a middle-aged, balding, bespectacled nerd, so it is highly amusing to picture myself in the persona of Paul Stanley! but it is well known that we Canadians are particularly devoted Kiss fans....
Really glad you liked it 5extra!

What a great song idea
And like others on the comment trail, I hear a classic Elvis Costello power-pop flavoring: terrific execution on this one! I 100% enjoyed it.
