Lyrics
(this ain´t backstage, isn´t it?)

you can top your neighbours car, the house, the pool the wife and the kids
and with the last bill from the surgery
your wife could easy top the ****

of all the models that are out there
in the spotlight virtual world
where they sharpened smiles at beautyfarms
and where they swear there is no dirt...

no drugs, no sex with under-aged
no cheating and no lies
everybody´s happy there
and everybody smiles...


and you watch your livestyle magazines
and you try to be like them

a kind of a spiritual suicide
does´nt matter - if you´re in...


in this land of PLASTC RAINBOWS
where everybody smile
you may find a VIRTUAL RIVER
where you can drown your gloomy life...

you´ll be reborn ther with more muscles,
you´ll find a girl with perfect thighs
and you´ll have kids so smart and clever,
well educationed, brave and fine...

(and the insurance-man´s a friend of you -
YES HE CAN fix everything -
broken mirrors and those seven years...
this tale just makes him grin...)


and you watch your livestyle magazines
and you try to be like them

a kind of a spiritual suicide
does´nt matter - if you´re in...

there´s love around...
everybody´s happy there...
everybody smiles...
oh, watch the flowers grow...
everything´s so neat...
everybody´s happy there and
everybody freak out...
cos´ of love...
(c´mon, we show you, how we feel...)

What's up doc?
YOU are! What a fabulous tune man. Love your vocals throughout. (Just a hint of Richard Thompson.) The arrangement is cool and Floyd-esque. Just brilliant.

Enjoyed VERY much!

Enjoy the show
I seem to always do just that. Another great song Doc. The chorus shines. Simple and powerful. That's the hook. Great drum work. Good lyrics, as always. Wall of sound at 4:00, yes. The picture ... umm ... not so much. Hahahaha.

This is amazing... complex and simple base on just a few chords. Steve (Psalms Progressions) turned me on to this... I cant say enough of how great this song is.

a girl with perfect thighs
great job mixing the vocals, love the deadpan delivery on one side vs the singing on the other, the laugh sample is brilliant. mix is spot on. pink floyd meets pearl jam, cool stuff.

Very nice!
It's nice to see a guy doing every instrument in the mix on his own, really cool work. Makes it very personal too. Good chord changes, smooth transitions.

Really strong vocals
And a well-crafted arrangement! (I hear the Richard Thompson and Pink Floyd resonances here as well...)

You really did this on Audacity? I barely got it to work on my laptop before I converted to Logic and Mac.
