Description
Thanks to Dan for improving and adding interest to the percussion tracks! The drums are nicely crafted.

Thanks also to Andy for his sweet sounds! His sax seems to fit almost any situation. He added a depth to the piece and danced well with the other parts.

After having some scheduling issues, we have finally put together something truly comfortable! Thanks again, guys.

Other fixes include: Opened up vocals, pulled reverb from all but drums, sax and mains. Cut down on overdriving guitars to clean the overall sound. Tweaked the bass frequencies. Rebuilt the mix from scratch.

I'm off to a New Years party! See you soon!

Doug

Lyrics
I won't get lost
'cause I'm living in a dream
gotta chip on my shoulder
as I'm rollin' down a stream
and I'm cold and I rock
if you're seein' what I mean
but I got no way to get there

'cause I cut all the lines
and the ties with the thieves
who, to gain some capitol,
they clamored over me
and I'm barely alive
with nothing to breath
so there ain't no way to get there

I can't run
I can't hide
the things that I've seen
I won't even try
Deep in my heart
I cannot deny
But for now I'll just fly

And although through my days
getting caught up by the phrase
that I wouldn't understand
how their money really pays
and I walk for the walk
and I stumble through the haze
'cause I got no way to please them

So I'll walk on my own
and I'm never going home
'till I can figure out my route
it's an ever growing poem
it's the story of my life
it's my life that's my home
and there ain't no one to make it

I can't run
I can't hide
the things that I've seen
I won't even try
Deep in my heart
I cannot deny
But for now I'll just fly

dig the mix
Doug. like the sensitivity on the mix on the sax... not too much . not too little. And it did not overpower. I always thought that the song as originally posted stood up all by itself without any additional instruments which really honored me that you asked for sax. There is something else vastly improved on this song. The vocals and the percussion opened up beautifully. There is a killer low end.... beautiffuly done... hats off to you and Dan.

Tapestry
Love the weaving of guitars and sax on this. Great sound. The vocal is excellent - Lou Reed springs to mind (high praise in my world!) - and the mix is great - great space for all the instruments - although the vocal is stronger in the left channel (especially in the verses) which I didn't notice through speakers, but which became a little distracting on my second listen on the headphones. Excellent work. This is sweet. Nice work to everyone involved. Kudos. Peace.

Great mix on a a really fine song
I really like the vocal treatment and everyone sounds excellent. Reminds me a little of Lou Reed's Rock and Roll Heart album.

Very Lou Reed feel
to this Jack. This could have been HUUUUUGE back in the old days when every new album was new and exciting. Nice bit of collaboration with Andy and Dan too.
Great feel.
Happy 2010,
Neil

So much to like here
It sounds like you really worked the mix and I think it sounds great. Love the contrast between the rhythmically spoken verses and the psychedelic touch in the chorus. The drum track (always great to have a drummer on board!) and ringing synths work well for me here and the sax is a perfect element. Fine fine song Doug and co.

Thanks for the jam.
Doug
