Description
I posted this song a while back when I was still working on it and I just realized I never posted the final version so here it is.
This song is sort of part II to Down Time.

Lyrics
REPEAT THE SCENERY
©2010 Ray Kainz

Down time
Been hangin’ ‘round for a long time
It’s about time
To lose your hang-up about time

Pick up the pieces
Carry them around
Deepen the creases
Of your friendly frown

You're always moving
You never get far
Cuz circles only take you back
To where you start

Round and round and
Round and round
The days go by and by
You see the sound of the storm
Within the eye
You tug the strings
Of the puppet in the sky
And you really don’t know why

Well I’ve made some bad decisions
I make them over in my head
They follow me wherever I go
They’ll haunt me till I’m dead

If wisdom comes with passing years
Well I’m living irony
I’m traveling in circles
Repeat the scenery

Pick up the pieces
Carry them around
Deepen the creases
Of your familiar frown

Will we spiral out of control
Will we someday finally be free
As we travel in our little circles
Repeat the scenery

Round and round and
Round and round
The days go by and by
You see the sound of the storm
Within the eye
You tug the strings
Of the puppet in the sky
But you really don’t know why

So can we just start over again
We can make it you and me
As we travel in our circles
We’ll paint the scenery

oh yeah i remember this one. love this ray. there's a build leading to 'I've made some bad decisions', but when the line comes it would be more interesting dynamically for something to announce it. that's the only thing i thought needed developing. love the section at 2.20...just you and that cool open guitar chord. lovely. round and round is a fantastic hook to come back to. fantastic ending. you rock ray.

Time on your mind
"I'm living irony." Nice. I dig the alternative pop rock thing. And the final lyric, about painting your own scenery, lending a sense of hope you can break free of the cycles and paint your new surroundings. Or just cover over the old ones? Sometimes the delusions we paint are the best starting points for the rings within rings we live. Or the best way to try out something new to see if we want to go there instead. This is a radio ready track, clear and fresh, walking the nice tightrope between hip and true.
