Lyrics
Driven By Desperation
by Silver & I. Spike

droplets of sweat trickling down
clenching my teeth, hard to swallow
skin cold to the touch
but I’m burning up
oh what have I done
my poor little one

driven by desperation
my heart wants to explode
driven by desperation
I have nowhere to go

allontanati... fammi guardare...
sono solo parole... non parlare...
lascia me controllare... so di te... delle tue parole...
allontanati... fammi guardare...
sono solo parole... non parlare...
allontanati... fammi guardare...
sono solo parole... sono solo parole...


heartbeat of steel, rumbling breath growl
shadows consume, hard to swallow
groping with dirty street fingers
and blinking with neon caked eyes
I’ve come undone
my poor little one

driven by desperation
my heart wants to explode
driven by desperation
I have nowhere to go

allontanati... fammi guardare...
sono solo parole... non parlare...
lascia me controllare... so di te... delle tue parole...
allontanati... fammi guardare...
sono solo parole... non parlare...
allontanati... fammi guardare...
sono solo parole... sono solo parole...

Before I listened...
I faved. You guys are what's known as a "can't miss". Massimo, the musical foundation you provide and other-worldly production skills are spot on as usual... but, man-- YOU SING TOO! You'll put us all out of work!

Steve, another stellar vocal performance and some great lyrics- Right up there with our pal Elvis Costello.

Most excellent, dudes!

Thanks...
I appreciate that, especially after we just went on and on about how much we lyricists. I was really happy with these lyrics, but it all comes from the inspiration of Sil-VER's tracks. There's some kind of built in urgency to what he does that is very tantalizing...

Gosh, this is good....
Adam says it just right... you really are a 'can't miss' team...

Sil-VER, your mixes are just mind-blowing to me... They are loud, but they have space, and a full spectrum of frequencies... The drums are always incredible...

And here, that vocal over the top of everything is stunning and a perfect match to the musical foundation...

Terrific...

awesome
Brillliant, guys. Brilliant.

It was only a matter of time that you two would team up. And that we'd finally hear the voice of Mr. Ferrusi.

Congrats on a SMOKIN' collab!

Pro-duction
This is a very cool track. Your production skills are probably the best I have heard on MacJams. You vocals are ace--you should be proud not modest. It moves through some intense passages and shoots out the other end into a slinky smooth groove,,,,then wham bacl out again into the storm. A fav, and a download.

So matter-of-fact... good driving song, as others point out about the great drums on it, i.Spike vox is great.

oooooWEEEEE
major monster music! i love the contrast in the different sections. the sexy slower verse exploding into the driven by desperation part is killer. lead vocal is great, full of all sorts of wonderful flavor - the deeper twinned voice was a great idea. fabulous energy - sweet job! anne

Viva la Sil-VER!
Okay, so here's the story from my end...
Sil-VER was looking fro absent Spike and when he finally found me he wanted to send me another track to sing on. Well of course I said yes, because as we all know Sil-VER's tracks crush beyond all recognition!!! So I worked with the track and was really happy with the verse and chorus, but try what I might, I could not come up with anything I liked for the other section. I suggested to Sil-VER that he have someone else come up with someone (it was onesweetworld actually), but her voice is not feeling well. So what does Sil-VER do? Steps up, sings the part himself and in his native language! Sil-VER it rocks so hard I LOVE IT!

You've done it again!
Another brilliant SIL-VER collab. Massi, I really look forward to these! Each time you get together with someone new you produce another monster. Your production is second to none here at MJ, and it astounds me how you wring so much dynamics out of everything you do. Steve, this is also a great performance from you - and an outstanding melody line. Massi, good to hear you singing too. Now a CD of SIL-VER colabs - that's something I'd like to see/hear.
Peace,
Neil

Spectacular
This track is completely irresistible. Such a great combination of expected and unexpected, comfortable and jarring, Steve's vocals and Massimo's.

Satisfying on every level. Just a great piece of music. Congratulations, gentlemen.

Give up your day Job.
Jeez, does I Spike have a day job - how do you find the time to write so much great stuff? This is a really intense little ditty, with lurvely production, and some fantastically thought out little breaks and changes. The two choruses here work really well. I like the way you sing the verse -really sleazy. I chorus in Italian is a wonderful mix of intense music and chilled kinda vocals.
Fav track of the year so far.

Took me a while...
...to finally comment on this - but better late than never, right?

This is such a cool collaboration, you guys. An excellent, groovy beat, I. Spike's vocals are terrific as always and what a surprise it was to hear you in this one, Silver - a pleasant surprise, I might add!

Definately a download-worthy track!
Mighty fine work!
