Lyrics
Round in Circle

When I look at the picture
I see something I can’t describe
Now I’m older, no richer
There’s nothing I haven’t tried

Round in circles, no need for all this panic and pain
Round in circles, let’s not give up on this wonderful game

When I look into the mirror
Exploring the back of my mind
I struggle hard to remember
Memories I’ve held inside

Falling again

Round in circles, no need for all this panic and pain
Round in circles, let’s not give up on this wonderful game

When I think of my old dreams
And what we all have become
We don’t know what we’re doing
We don’t know where we’re from

Falling again

Yes the production is really good on this song. I really like that saturation effect at about 2:40 or so.

Very cool song.

Too early to look at that picture for too long
but the song sounds great. Indeed there's really good definition to the mix. Nice work with the synth textures or flanged guitar - not sure which. Good use of strings too - and a really sweet chorus. Excellent post Dave.

I agree the production is so clean! It seems wider and deeper than your earlier work. That's just the impression I get from the way it sounds. Vocals right up front. Great job Dave.

This was a fun listen. The bass line kept everything gelled, and your guitar tracks were tastefully done. Thanks for posting.

Lamp
Wicked little detune intro.
Guitars are subtle and nicely played especially the lead work which I'd really effective.
The bass in the verse is one if my favourite elements. Solid drums propel this along nicely and the vox are suitably great. The backing/echoed vox aren't immediately noticeable, almost subliminal but now I'm focussed on them I'm noticing how effective they are in the song.
Smart arrangement too!

Scratching the surface?
I'll let you in on a little secret; I can't sing. And I'm surprised when I can get it to be passable. I think the ceiling has been reached as far as my vocals, but thanks for the vote of confidence. lol

Hope you liked the song.

good bass. what a cool chorus! like it a lot.
i would bring up that rhythm guitar's volume in the left ear a smidge. real fine job of putting yourself totally into the vocal. "no need for all this p & p, lets not give up on this game" - my favorite line. i enjoyed your efforts, anne

Great hook
Reminds a little of XTC which is no bad thing.

Production is excellent. Clean and everything in its proper place.

That picture is something else as well!

yo, mick
as in Jagger. that verse is very mick-ish, i dig it. great phrasing. i like the off kilter chorus too, although it took a listen or two to get used to it - really like the soft rock quality, that was a cool compositional choice.

is messing with my mind. That freaks my eyes out. Cool laid back rock vibe. Would like to hear a harmony or two on top of the vocal double in the chorus. Cool song. I enjoyed it, especially the bridge.
