Lyrics
For the Children

Waiting for silence though the noise still consumes my ears
More and more violence waging war for the selected few
'CAUSE you can't take away all those profits
For THE few that have more than they can use
So crawl around stick your head in the ground
Will you let them run all over you...Yeah

Mortar flying right over their heads
Are those commies faces RED
Bullets count and how many ARE dead
Could this be the sixties all over again
Please excuse me I would like to know
Who made up those lies and told those folks
Go out into the fields hang tight to your gun
I need to fill my pockets son...

Throw around the constitution like it was some kind of solution
The wrong revolution more pollution to cover what's at stake

Just say No! it's not your game turn away from the daily fox
They got you covered over your head over your eyes
Can't you see their raging mad

It' s time to take a stand teach those around you to understand
Yes you can to make a difference and kick their cans you American

They got the FOOLED into believing an old rule it never worked out
Yet they throw it back don't you know don't you have your doubts?
They're giving it to you

Power to the people not those aristocrats who take it all and it
never trickles back what they tell you is not real just a bad deal...

Good ringing guitars, (both the acoustic and the lead electric) steady drums, the vocal delivers the message with commitment and emotion. Excellent work!

Thanks for listening. I just discovered that the acoustics seems to sound better through a mic than direct in. Enjoyed your tribute to the festivals as well.

The guitar feedback at the start really grabbed me. Settled nicely into a powerful acoustic rocker. Powerful lyrics and one of your best vocals! Great lead playing. Excellent production and mix.

Cool protest song, definitely emotes that feeling of angst and frustration that was so prevalent then and now. Nice progression and melody, just a cool cool song.

it's political, but very good
the more things change the more they stay the same?

reminds me of
It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no senator's son, son
It ain't me, it ain't me; I ain't no fortunate one, no

great song
thanks

Go political
it's one of the many things music is good for - and I'm all for it. Great track - love the intro and the roughneck guitar tone on the leads. Nice use of the spoken break - cool stuff.

I like that. We need to bring those jobs back! Thanks for the commentary and I'm especially happy that you approve being the protester that you are. Love Trickledown Blues, I really felt I was on the receiving end.

In coming!
Screamin' guitar mortar in coming opener. I like making the words of politicians like lobbed incoming grenades. Nice attitude rock. Dug it.

Can't wait to meet you in the green room back stage. (Or is the green room that paisley Volkswagen van?)

I particularly like...
...the acoustic playing on this one, John...There's a bit of a lick in there that sounds really good...You also seem to have nailed one of the signature psychedelic sustaining guitar tones for the leads... Has a bit of that Youngbloods vibe to it...

I discovered the tracks came out pretty clean when recording the ukulele through a mic so I tried the acoustic guitar and was pleasantly surprised that it sounds much more natural than plugging the onboard pickup directly into the interface. Not only does the acoustic sound more natural but it's more forgiving and doesn't capture every little mistake I make. The electric was a setting in logic, I'm really happy with the sounds I'm getting out of that program. The beginnings of the song were worked out on my hand-me-down iPad using garage band but I quickly realized that I would need to use a desktop in order to get the sound I wanted. Thanks for the comments and I'll have to check out the Youngbloods.

woodstock children
nasty intro tone. then really lovely warm acoustic and vocal that really works. cool lead tones and playing. nice arrangement. I like this tune a lot. has a feel of professionalism and accomplishment. Not entirely sure about the last section with the gunfire etc. I would possible re-do this as the rest of the song has been so well done. cool stuff. cheers graham

Thanks for listening to the song. I appreciate your positive input. Professionalism... that's to kind and I like it. As far as the end, you're right it was an after thought... accidents happen so I thought it was cool and I left it in there... The tune could definitely use a re-visit

Definitely has a Hendrix hanging out at Neil Young's house vibe. Great sounding guitars as usual. Like the spoken word/rap section. Your delivery fits nicely in this tune.
