Lyrics
from the salt mine to the sidewalks
shuffle up and down the block,
tangled up tube -shaped
loops and grooves,
local spacetime
rabbits in the backyard
ants are working so hard
youre digging up the ground on your knees all around
the foundation
middle class, middle class
gotta keep fighting to stay middle class
a note in the mailbox saying "we don't like your grass"
are you kidding me?
meanwhile down the street they're building a black castle
i got a secret wish
live on the beach n offa the grid
pass around a bony fish
to my dirty wife and kids around the campfire

Nothing brings me MJ joy like a new Relic tune. Digging how you chain together the various grooves and moods. Really love the section at about 1:02 and 2:23 where it goes all XTC-like. Cool guitar tones. They may be amp sims but I swear I can smell the tubes glowing. Downloaded!

thanks
thanks for those kind words andrew, there's a few of those Guitar Rig tones that I tend to gravitate to.
I'm still looking for a bass tone that I'm happy with though...

A masterpiece of groove collage
just amazing - from beats to melodic references - you are so on it with this tune. Killer - and extremely impressive accomplishment. A big bow to you sir.

glad you liked ego, it's a bit of a dog's breakfast but I think or at least hope there is some kind of internal logic to it...

Such an amalgam of influences... This certainly took me on a trip. I wasn't sure what to expect at the next turn. So well put together. That house must sure have grabbed you and spun you around. Amazing. Thanks, Peter.

the castle
this house is big, black and looms ominously over the quaint little homes on either side.
I keep expecting the Eye of Sauron to appear over the top of it.... if someone in the neighbourhood doesn't torch it first.
thanks for listening Peter!

Man this is great!
I have to agree with Char in that there's touches to this that have a Beatlesque woven into this--like the completely unexpected break, which fits beautifully but sends me into another mood, then back again. The lyrics truly set the mind to thinking, but in such a way that every listener may have a slightly different interpretation than the next, but they are all related somehow. As I've listened to your work here and the past, with all this talent on display (all of this is so professional), I'm firmly convinced you have to be somebody of note, but just coming here for a lark (I ain't kidding!) Excellent work you've given us here, thanks!

aw shucks
very kind of you Michael, I really appreciate it, especially from someone with actual pro chops such as yourself... be cool if I was someone of note, but I assure you I ain't!
