A song about the human condition

Lyrics
Bosses and slaves

You know in times like these
It is hard to get by
You will never live at ease
No matter how hard you try

And the guys at the top
They know the grabbing won't last
So they don't hesitate
Gotta work real fast

A fancy house, a swimmingpool
Luxury cars, a lot of blingbling
Now tell me who's the fool
When you can buy anything

Take what you can get
The heart full of greed
One man's fortune
Makes other people bleed

All men are equal you say
But I say there's bosses and slaves
You're just born this way
From the cradle to the grave

And Standard and Poor
What's in a name
They decide who's rich, who's poor
It's a f***ing shame

(KC april 2012)

One of my favs from you ... Love your talking vocals ... what a great groove underneath ... feels reminiscent of an old Eric Burdon and war ... spill the wine feel ... just a little. I love your keyboard sound. I have mentioned that before, but I really do. Bass and drums are groovin' and that fuzzy guitar solo! Excellent piece Cees, hey, that rhymes.Strong lyrics ....
Great sparkly clear mix!
Cheers

You Hit ....
The Nail On The Head.....
Cool track, nice feel tough lyrics but true.....Well Played....

The picture only depicts one kind of slave, but at this point in the game
everyone that is not rich and can not live with out the system, is a slave to
the system....The rich can afford to live out side and even lend the system
money when needed...
So If you've got a bank lone your a slave or you work for a wage your a slave

Not a nice thing when you look at the hole picture....... :-)

Peace....

Well done......

This is fantastic, Cees. One of your most original, and best, compositions. The two basses really work well here and the restrained vocals, guitar and sax work allow the lyrics to shine. An eye opener. Thanks, man. Peter.

Brutally true with a kewl groove to back it. I love my anime and this reminds me of the hip series Cowboy bebop. They have great music and this piece would be absolutely perfect for it!!

That sax really adds to this nicely. Great feel and a fantastic array of instruments, nice one
Loob said 2027 days ago (May 7th, 2012)
Has a Bill Withers feel with
that funky clav and baritone sax. Love the spoken word vocal KC. Little bit of Robbie Robertson Lazy River feeling too. Mighty cool here buddy! Well done!

Cool lyric, and the matter-of-fact vocal delivery underscores the message well. Great rolling groove. I like the electric piano (clav?) line and horn fills. One of my favorites from you.
