Lyrics
[ black ]

it is a black and white photograph
it is a black and white scene
it is a black and white city
with black and white buildings in it

there's a black and white woman
there's a black and white man
sitting by a table
holding hands
there's black and white spring
screaming outside
there's a black and white lie
shaping in her mouth
her lips could be red
but they're just black and white
they're shiny when they open up
to submit a lie
with her lips she smiles
but there's tears in her eyes
she holds a cup of coffee
at the café of black and white

black and white
it's black and white

there's a black and white woman
there's a black and white man
there's black and white cars
other women and other men
there's a black and white cigarette
with black and white smoke
her heart is black as tar
her lies won't take her far
he's not white like an angel
but today it seems as if
he has wings behind his shoulders
at least that's what she sees
it's a black and white time
no colors to be found
their city is submissive
it is black and white

cold, dark emotion in monochrome
really excellent job with the chorus-a definite hook for
me, just love how it kicks in. also enjoyed the guitars. i
think if they were a little more prominent, they could
pump up the song even further. the first verse seems a
little dry compared to the rest of the song-i want it to feel
messy & dirtier for some reason, not sure why

only one real nag.. i wince when i hear those GB
loop FX-this song FAR too creative to need them! DL'd

I like this track - it feels like a monochrome photograph -
not overproduced or trying to push itself down your throat
with gaudy colours.

The chorus is really insistent and urgent. I actually like
both of the verses, and the changes of effects through
them - but as a whole the track was a little longer than
I wanted it to be.

But this sounds great.

Still think you sound like dEUS!

Thank you
I am in a song-making race again. I don't know a race
against what, but it it's a race nevertheless.

Bummer! You know -nderscore, sometimes I just throw in
a loop for the **** of it. I could make that same sound FX
myself of course, loops are just very handy and easily
accessed from the right bar. Sometimes I think none will
hear because I try to sneak them in... :) Aww, now I feel
like being caught cheating...

dEUS? I have to be honest with you, I have no idea who
that is??? It does sound familiar however... None of my
songs are in the risk zone of being overproduced that's
for sure. :)

Thank you for taking the time to listen and to comment.
Very much appreciated like always.
