Description
Hi there!

Another one of my Lucky Ghost album, Network Stars. This one inspired by those old Hardy Boys stories, even though I never read any of them. A semi-whimsical take on kids who have seen too much too soon.

Best,

Seth

Lyrics
while we wait for cause of death
let's sit back and take a breath
think about his or her life
about her husband or his wife
the dog or cat that lost an eye
the baby born that wouldn't cry

stranger is as stranger does
and what you do I just can't trust
it is against all natural laws
and what I've seen I can't un-saw
we lost our nerve at sussex falls
I made the grade, you made the calls

it would be such a sweet relief to learn the photographs were faked
like the time we caught our teacher throwing apples in that lake
I get so tired of all the drama that my hands begin to shake

we've got parents just like you
but every word ours' said was true
how there are some you just can't save
the things you'll find inside of caves
how every christian is a jew
you see they had adventures too

it would be such a sweet relief to learn the photographs were faked
like the time we caught our teacher throwing apples in that lake
I get so tired of all the drama that my hands begin to shake

'cause every time we intervene
it scrubs our hearts and makes them clean
we saved our uncle from his smoke
comediennes that can't write jokes
robbed from peter, gave to paul
and never once complained at all

it would be such a sweet relief to learn the photographs were faked
like the time we caught our teacher throwing apples in that lake
I get so tired of all the drama that my hands begin to shake

reminds me of "guided by voices" a bit.
catchy, well structured, interesting...
like the build up on the bridge section.
I'll look for more of your stuff.

for another listen. Already downloaded this tune. I love the vocal melody in this piece. I like the chorus a lot. The intro guitar lick is new and interesting. The verse guitar riff I am so-so about, it is fine, but I think it could be better. And when you come back to the third verse after the musical interlude, something more is needed there. It builds up and then dies back into what we already heard twice. Perhaps more excited vocals or extra instrumentation. Thanks for sharing this.

this sounds great, and is a great song. that bass is really nice sounding, and your voices sound so warm. that's not a USB mic is it. damn that intro/repeating motif is cool. really nice tune man.
