Lyrics
A DANGEROUS LIFE

(Chorus):
Can't you feel, you've gone too high
You're running out of air supply
Take the wheel, but you cant fly
You wanna steal, but there's a private eye

You know that its a crime
You gotta wear your dark shades
You wanna hit the big big time
Gotta have the ace of spades

Your gun is stainless steel
Take the risk on a high wire
Every dinner may be your last meal
You love to cross the line of fire

(Repeat chorus)

Ignore a dangerous climb
Always a new height to invade
But you seem to have lost the rhyme
You gotta sharpen the bloody blade

You seek some domination
It's a thrill of the game, yeah
You made the provocation
You're at the crosshair's aim

(Repeat chorus)

(Bridge):
When will you start believing
There's no end to this journey
You walk a road of glass and thorns
'Til the day you are reborn...

Ignore a dangerous climb
Always a new height to invade
But you seem to have lost the rhyme
You gotta sharpen the bloody blade

Your gun is stainless steel
Take the risk on a high wire
Every dinner may be your last meal
You love to cross the line of fire

(Repeat chorus 2x)

Back to the 80s... in spades
What a trio of big name talent... Love the guitar work here, high-octane music writing, and those vox are always "out-of-the-park". Top-notch mixing here, everything is super-crisp... love the synth work sprinkled into perfect spots there too.

Listening to it with huge speakers, and this mix certainly is a big step up from the last one. The instrumental mix and production are excellent, while the vocals has a live rock stadium texture and quality to it. Definitely my way-up thumbs up to this, Michael!

Hey we're just three guys making music and if it sounds "retro" then so be it (like they say - "nothing has been done that hasn't been done") I'm not trying to bring back to 80's on the contrary, I am making music for today that has a flavor of the 80's from my soul that I can't help but to project in my songs. I appreciate your comments & listen and thanks for making me open up a bit to express my opinion.

Props to Michael
THE Michael V. House did the mix. We did have a back-and-forth emailing over how to optimize the vocals. But especially when it comes to instrument mixing, Michael's got to be one of the masters! And Ric Stehman's guitar can walk on water, as far as I'm concerned. Those guitar sounds are almost not human. :-)

... I wish I could figure out how to record vocals like this (inside) ..... this seems to be only something I have managed to mess around with (live) so far .... sounds GREAT M ! And Leon has managed to pull it off again .... but I think he knows a thing or two about mixing and compression too .... but yet .. he still MUST be belting it out inside his house ..... !!!!! You guys have definitely found the MAGIC mix of people here for sure !

I dig the tight chorus, the punchy rhythms, the crunching guitar. Not enough classic rock being done today. There are always new heights for the genre.

I was actually a Private Eye for 3-4 years in the middle 80s. I dug the dark shades/ace of spades rhyme, made me smile. The vocals sat just right. Nice track.
