Description
originally this song was done 2 1/2 years ago with Tim (Egobandit) Tim had posted it and a couple months later had deleted his account. So, I have been thinking of reposting for some time. Since E.B. is out of commission for the time being, i thought this would be good time to keep him in our minds.

originally this was titled words of victory, so a little title change can't hurt

i did do some additional tweeking and effecting, mostly on the vocal tracks this week.

Vic:
vocals, tons of guitar tracks, odd effects

Tim:
bass drums, percussion, guitar, more odd effects

Lyrics
The Calling

sometimes I crawl like a beetle in the dirt
sometimes I 'm crushed underfoot
like a butterfly with torn off wings
I am so grounded over minor things

revolution calling
desperate measures
words of victory play in my head
words of victory I rise from the dead

avalanche of fears threaten to descend
if I lose my ways and my pretty things
I see to many people live in the dark
if I build it up they'll tear it apart


so many holes the bottom never ends
careful what you say you don't want to offend
be careful what you whisper the walls have ears

revolution calling
desperate measures
words of victory play in my head
words of victory I rise from the dead

Words of Victory
Wow Vic,

I don't remember this great song! It's a perfect example of two very different artists stretching their abilities and complimenting their styles to come up with something very unique and very original.

This is a scorcher! You really surprised me with this one. Vocals are tops.

Excellent stuff from both or you.

Thanks for the download.

i don't think very many people caught it the first time around 2 1/2 years ago when Tim posted it. unfortunately Tim had deleted one of his accounts. it's to good of a tune to leave in the layers of dark folders.
