Description
This is the same version of the song but Sammy did a vocal for it. The song file from logic has bit the dust after my mac went down. The files were corrupted and couldn't be copied across to the hard drive, and therefore had to be binned. I lost 2 other tracks. A 4 year life span for a mac?

So, I wanted to fix a few things on this tune like the sound of the solo and drums, but alas that can't be done. Sammy kindly took on the mixing duties using only the mp3.

Cheers Sammy, another very talented musician that has really helped me out. Thanks for this and all your help.

Lyrics
BLACK

One minute you know what we're here for
Next minute, we leave you with doubt
come with us, we're the ones to follow
don't fight it, we'll help you now

like sleeping on satin, black pillows
a comfort awkward, but sound
venomous, poison-like shadows
dance slowly within this house

we have everything that you want for
we can fill your needs

but first,
there's something that we like to know...
something that we'd like to know...

something more
something more
we need to know

you'd tell us, but you don't have the balls

leave the light
leave the light
leave the light

come join us in the night

but you don't have the balls

is it our countenance that push you away?
let us get closer, we just want a bite
it won't take long, maybe you'd like it today
we'll make you forever, we think you'll be surprised
it's an in graven fact we'll leave you alive
nothing above us
come join us in the night

I really like what Sammy brings to your tunes Steve. Your parts and his just seem to lock and grow together. You have to be smiling at this outcome, it rocks. Sorry to hear of the crashing Mac.

Very Kings X! And that's a very good thing! Love the guitars! Sammy's vocal fits the dark vibe perfectly. There's a cool Axl Rose vibe in the vocal harmonies!

Killer riffage!

Killer solo work too!

A song with protruding canines
A song for our times, no doubt. I think this needs a video to go with it. There's a story there. Signature tokai double rhythm guitar grind, split left and right. Sam's vocals try to hide the underlying menace. They sound pretty in places, but we know better than to trust that. It's just a lure. I ain't falling for it. The distant screams around 2:20 are more believable. Guitar leads sing out strong. Drums are packing a punch. My rock sensibilities just got double-teamed and thrown to the mat. But soooo good.

knew i couldn't fool ya... doing these rock tunes are really torturing me. i feel like a prisoner of the city life. i'm almost physically aching to get on a stage with NO restrictions and just screaming my ass off! the way i feel now, i'd prob blow a speaker or two.

I've worn this one out
Loved the instrumental version, but this is off the charts now.

What a great combination, the two of you.

I must have spun this at least a dozen times.

Great rocker
Love the guitars in this. Fuzzy goodness. Sammydix did a great job on the vocals too. Great job!

BTW, it is likely the hard drive that has failed. ATA drives are great in the cost/space department but not so great in longevity.

Excellent piece ... great crunchy panning guitars. Sammy's voice ... has he been hangin' with Ozzie? Excellent Sammy and I love that lead guitar part that kicks in at about 1:46 and that's pretty creepy at 2:17 ... that wicked laugh. Excellent mix and nice job of the drums!
