Lyrics
hey hey another messy day
one more of these and i'm on my way
system shocks are just surface waves
promise you're not gonna leave me
let's go out and fly my kite
but i won't complain if I break it
we'll just call it the wind's mistake
promise you're not gonna leave me
sprawled out on the couch
and I can't look around
bombs are blowing up, I'm shutting down
all these people breaking loose and
taking off
i hope we got it better than they do
don't you think so
hey ho, everything i know
and all of my faith and fixations
essentially imagination
promise you're not gonna leave me

eXcellent
Don't know what to say. Just very cool attitude in the vox, a pure rock tune. Gnarly guitar work. I never use that word btw. (until now)

This ain't no relic!
This is rocking! Yeah, I agree with what someone else said, you have a low key attitude in your vocal and somehow so does the instrumental work! This is topflight, very professional work and I greatly enjoyed feeling it out. Don't ask me how I know, but that cartoon panel was drawn by John Romita, who used to illustrate the old Spider Man comics for Marvel when I was kid. Great work and I feel I should pay something to listen! Michael

I prefer Ditko
It doesn't surprise me at all that you knew the panel artist, thanks for providing the credit as it was just a random google image to me. Ever thought of going on Jeopardy? :)
Re the low key vocals, it may be a function of my age and the fact that I am singing while kicking back on a swivel chair in my basement.
Thanks for the kind words MJK!!

For all
the troubles mentioned, this still comes across as a light-hearted fun song...... love the vocals and the almost plodding rock beat.... kind of Beastie Boys style do you think and good with it, cheers M

thanks
Plodding and fun were exactly what I was going for so thanks for the nice comments! I like the Beastie Boys, but to really cop their style I would have to rap it in a Three Stooges voice. :)

Love it!
Man it's like Joan Jett meets ozzy and then Sloan shows up for the chorus. Sweet, sweet stuff! That solo is the coolest thing I've heard in a long time dude. Noisy goodness! Happily downloaded, this one's going to Texas with us.

Joan, Ozzy and Sloan
I'll gladly take all 3 of those comparisons! The solo was a bit tossed off and probably identical to solos in at least 3 of my other songs, but glad it sounded OK. Thanks for checking it out and have fun in Texas!

Ms. Jett
would like to sing this. You rocked it from your swivel chair and for that, you deserve praise. Thanks.
