Lyrics
Tick Tock-

Tick tock ..........
Time is running out
You’ re traveling to the dunes
Yet there’s no way out....

For what you’ve done
You show no remorse
You’ve got to pay
That’s the only recourse

Running running running
Running for the dunes
Running running running
Trying to catch the moon

We've all done things
That we regret
We try to escape
And yet...

Tick tock...........
Time is running out
Tick tock.......
Time is running out

The moon knows you’re coming
Knows you’re far away
The moon knows you’re coming
She’ll keep you at bay...

Tick tock........
It’s time for you to pay
Running, running
The moon can’t keep you at bay

We’ve all done
Things we regret
We try to escape
And yet....

Running running running
Running for the dunes
Running running running
Trying to catch the moon

Tick tock
It’s time to pay
Tick tock
It’s time to pay your dues
Tick tock
It’s time to pay
Tick tock
It’s time to pay your dues

I love the way your clean strat tone slaps you right in the face. Great electric piano sound. I love the way you achieve a bluesy feel while using fresh sounding chord changes. Great production and mix.

I like the strat to sound clean, had a lot of guitar effects when I was younger, but nowadays I like it clean :-) Thanks for your kind words!

This really has a nice vibe to it. Kinda in the vein of the Dire Straits, especially the vocal. Really great production as all your stuff seems to have. Great job here!

Although some instruments like the keys are virtual I always choose the same sort of keys, grand piano or fender rhodes, oldschool keys :-)

This is very impressive! The whole production is very good, with very fine playing/singing here. You sound a little like Mark Knopfler, but perhaps even more remarkable is that this song reminds me of Jiguma's music... similar somewhat-dark quality, high production values, and raspy vocals... Good work!

Thanks for taking the time to listen.

Existential
I more than liked it--I loved it Cees! This is another of yours that goes into my Mp3 player so I can listen to it anytime (and I'm rather selective about what goes on that thing!) All around excellent abounds on this (and special nod to Mary for the fine, moody lyrics, which you brought out beautifully). Full marks on this on Cees--thanks again!

Nice____
Tick____Tock____Time is running out.....Not for this. This is a solid blues style number. Love the electric piano right and the compressed strat sounding gtr on the left. Nice loop and most of all the vocal delivery - "Time to pay your dues" - THAT'S RIGHT!

Enjoyed - Thanks for sharing,

this may be the very best production I have heard to date here, and I've heard some pretty amazing productions, but everything is Steely Dan good, with such clarity, perfect mix, so clean and your voice is like butter, perfect for this song, Mary came up with a great hook and excellent lyrics,
I love that clean Strat guitar tone!

I wouldn't bet

Sometimes a mix works out great with little effort, sometimes it's a pain in the A** ! :-)
Thanks for your kind words though....
