Lyrics
The ironic fact of life is
there's no heaven to survive in
you're gonna have to do with what you find right here

And you better should remember
since the eleventh of september
there's little sympathy for towers in the sky

We live in interesting times

The Chinese, they have this saying
so perhaps we should be praying
for it sure as hell have been fascinating years

When you lose a life you take one

To order freedom by the threat of guns

We live in interesting times

Now there's change you can believe in
if you're sufficiently naive
and you don't know about power's compromising force

Say goodbye to Texas Cowboy
it appears we have a new joy
or would you care to judge
the most powerful man on earth
by the color of his skin? no?

I say we live in interesting times

This reminds me...
Of some Chris Smither songs... Deceptively simple, and deceptively deep...

Hypnotic guitar figure.... Gets that sense of brooding dread going... On my monitors, this could stand to have another couple of dB on the guitar track or tracks....

Hi Ed
thank you. I am mixing over headphones, which everyone says is a bad idea, so you're probably right about the db. Need to get me some monitors obviously.

1 guitar part only, but it's in DADGAD tuning so perhaps that makes it sound different.
