Description
An uplifting song about narcism, perversion, selfishness and moral corruption :).. with a leaning reference towards a polarizing personality. Should be clear. Thanks for giving it a a listen.

Lyrics
Have It All


Verse
The celebration of your life
It’s never ending, you’ve paid the price
The adoration is getting thick
You know you can’t get enough
Chorus
Yeah you think that you know, got it all figured out
Blood on your hands, and a gun in your mouth
You say “don’t judge me, I’ve had a bad day”
Verse
Congratulations, you win the game
But all your money can’t buy your shame
Self-medicating, it makes you sick
But still you can’t get enough

So how’s the family, or did you know?
That dirty secret left you exposed
Oh Mr. Allen, you “stole the show”
You know you can’t get enough
Chorus
Bridge
Do you really need to have it all?
Do you really need to have it all?
Do you really need to have it all?
Do you really need to take the fall?
Verse
The celebration of your life
It’s never ending, you’ve paid the price
The adoration is getting thick
You know you can’t get enough
Chorus
So you think that you know, have it all planned out
You’re slipping away, but times running out
Yeah, you think that you know, have it all planned out
Blood on your hands, and a gun in your mouth
You say “don’t judge me, I’ve had a bad day”

Yo Chris! You just plain rock dude! Great vocal! Awesome tune, reminds me of a dude that opened for Delbert years ago, dang I can't think of his name, I'll dig out the cd! :-) My fav of yours by far to date! Jd.

Don't Judge Me
The idea ya focused attention on this guy knocks me out. Character matters, that's the point here. Yer production is solid and the mix is great. Perhaps a surprise middle eight where Woody's nose gets a reflexive wack would have helped my sense of justice. The guitar ride out might have been angrier? I don't know... Woody, and the culture and worldview he represents have been lawless too long.
The idea people like him can be punished by proxy helps a lot... the emperor's new clothes.

Dead on man, to watch this guy skirt the law and general consciousness is just asinine. This song picks on him a bit but has other references that pertain to some other local (to me) incidents as well. Thanks so much for the thoughtful listen and comment!

Like you, my musical consciousness came to life in the 70's. This one had a bit of a Tommy Shaw, Styx influence. Although know one can sing anywhere close to that guy, some of the phrasing is similar if you listen closely. Thanks again!

Awesome track! So well written. And the vocal is outstanding. I know how humble you are about your voice.......but Dude.....you could totally be out there fronting your own band. Digging the main riff. Cool guitar tones and the organ is a nice touch. The whole package strikes me as your take on "Born Under a Bad Sign." Downloaded!

Love "Born Under a Bad Sign"...especially Pat Travers' version. This vocal fit right in my wheelhouse, and trust me, that's a small wheelhouse. But, this is the timbre I use when singing live, so it was comfortable. Thanks my friend!

Have it all
Good structure to the song - the riff is a strong one, the variety in the arrangement means the song is more than a plain rocker. Plaintive yet powerful vocal. Good soaring solo around the 2:38 mark and at the end of the song. You're a talented man, Chris!
rok41 said 1191 days ago (February 17th, 2014)
Philip
All of my songs are generally "riff" driven. I am a child of the 60's and 70's when the signature sound was all about the riff. Much appreciated my friend.

I love this riff driven style-and you captured it perfectly! Interesting that I also thought of Pat Travers while listening to this. But nicely done all the way around.You do cut yourself short on your vocals-you can sing bro. Cool to hear your guitar work too-sounded great. Production is wonderful of course- love the mix! Aside from the music-your lyric writing has really come around.Really nice flow and storyline! Great job brotha!!

You know, the mixing/mastering thing makes me crazy...I sometimes feel like I'm painting in the dark, just clueless. Soon, I hope to be upgrading to Logic, possibly adding a mastering suite of software, to make things happen a little easier. It's nice to know that the mixes I have done have been getting better, and I appreciate the support, as always. Now, when are we going to do one of yours?

Cool tune. I like it. The singing is very good, and so is the playing. Production sounds good too, on the tiny computer speakers I'm currently using. My jury is still convening regarding the message. :)

Chris, your vocals are the star here in a song that oozes quality at all levels. They are fantastic rock vocals. Since you have really started showcasing your own work over the last couple of years my respect for your musical abilities just grows and grows. Great riff groove and the drums/bass provide the swagger and muscle needed to back it up. Extended applause. Thanks, Peter.

These "solo" projects are all about growth, and extended myself. The vocals here were sung similarly to how I sing i a live setting, more push. Up until now on MJ's I have sung in a lower register, so it was fun stretching. Now, my dogs, were wondering why I was screaming in my room! Thanks again Peter, means a lot.

I'd say the mix is exquisite! Wow!

It's tough to leave anything specific to say when all the elements of a song - including its production - are as good as this. I could easily have bought music that is like this song. A solid rocker with meaningful lyrics - kind of like a good Don Henley song. Dloaded of course, with thanks.

Styx and Stones May Break...
... his bones, but songs will never hurt him. ;)

I can definitely hear the Styx vibe in here Chris and you do an excellent job in expanding on it in this scathing song. Excellent work all the way around, from music to vocals to production.

Lots of interesting twists and turns in here and very entertaining. ;)
