Lyrics
In my mind I have a vision of a world that's free and true
Gonna be a real transition, It's gotta start with me and you

In the city there's a fountain, nature's mirror looking down
Different colors in the water, Different people all around

Showing off to boost their egos, peacock people in the rain
Why can't they all be like Jesus? Why they all be the same?

Love the music. That guitar has a wicked edge to it. Drums and outro sax both sound great. Good mix. Kinda scratching my head over the lyrics, but I'm not too bright, so no matter. Nice work, gents.

He did seem to wander a bit.... about to boost their ego. Not sure how he figured that into this, but I got tolerence and ethnic diversity from it. Glad you enjoyed it.

Reminds me...
...of Dire Straits. That guitar evokes emotions like their song Brothers in Arms does. This is great composition all around. Vocals and harmonies and the instrumental arrangement are all great.

Fred, pull out more from the archives ... this is some sweet playing. Alan's guitar tone with that incredible sustain sends me floating ... no I haven't been smoking anything. This is a nice tune and some fine playing all around. Good mix Freddy ... lots of feel in this tune ... I like the way the smooth sax takes it out ... should have ended with a cymbal crash at 4:14 ... doesn't feel resolved at the end.
Great job !

Nice_____
Great job (from the archives 2008) I would push the vox up a few db for my taste but the mix was pretty good Freddy. (this must be SLOW song week - this is the third one in a row I've listened to) It's all good.

Enjoyed - Thanks for sharing,
