Lyrics
Omega

blue sparks
fifty foot long blue sparks
jumping like lightning
from the high tension wires to the ground

jumping between the wires
slowly from one tower to the next
the blue sparks multiply

sailing to the North
and to the South
spreading through the grid
dancing across the wires

from the East
to the West




she looks at me with her steel blue eyes
a hint of a smile
but mostly
concern
in those eyes

the lights have been out for days
no word
on when they might return...

the world has stopped
there's nowhere to go
and no way to get there

chat with the neighbors
and check what's left in our fridge

and when it gets dark...
it gets dark.
darker than i've ever seen before

and the night sky is ablaze
with planets, stars and galaxies

it's all we have left

(c)2008 Bill Grundmann

I think
that vocal over the top gives this great sound a context for us to focus on. The original is fantastic and I think you've only added to this; it sounds great. Just the right tone in your voice, regards M

the words for this simply tumbled out.

i turned on the recorder and spoke extemporaneously.

i tried tweaking the words a little, and tried doing a few more takes, but i ended up settling on using the original recording. all i did was edit out one hesitation and clipped off a phrase at the very end.

thanks

Very great song & collab
Real 'Happy'(a bit stirred) to hear this...its a strong message w great music . . as tonite(today) its exactly 5 years since Usa went into Irak it became even stronger..4000killed soldiers, here they say 1 miljon killed Iraki People.. Ofcourse its much more if You see to ALL - People who die 'indirect' of the war..its so unbeleivable what the World looks like,so MUCH this past week-2-I only mention this(also ofcourse Israel/Palestine is VERY bad now & the Israelis are building on there concretewall on the border..it seems so useless it makes so many People unhappy& insecure the world is in a very 'East/west'situation Tonite I was happy to read in the news that Chinas PrimeMinister(Wen Jiabao) is considering(agreeing I think but i'm not quite sure) talking to Dalai Lama:) its been the worst( need dictionary help, lol!)..revolt there for 20 years . Democroxy...wish the World had come as far as having it(!) People have been 'fighting' for it for hundreds/thousand years in some parts of the world.
ohhh i got out of line here didn't I...! Its just that we really need to see what we got we have freedom we have the rights to say what we want here(i'm in Sweden). There is so much to be thankful for that we easily take for granted ! I really enjoy the picture !! The top looks like a Lionshead with his mouth open a big 'furcollar' as the malelions have GREAT ONE : ) & GREAT SONG TX
Hey the link to the original by davisamerica is nogood the song is deleted ?
SmokeyVW said 3919 days ago (March 19th, 2008)
.
well... i guess this brought out a few emotions, eh?

sometimes the world is a scary place indeed.

i agree that the spark shape looks like an animal - i think that's partially why i chose that image.

i think the song was deleted, but maybe we can get it brought back somehow...

thank you
