Description
This is a rough mix of a song from The Eli Wise Band's upcoming album. The song features Damon Waitkus on piano and backing vocals, Luke Seldon on Bass, and myself on guitar and vocals. I'm very excited about sharing the work from this album with others and welcome your feedback! If you are interested in a downloadable version, please email me. I'll be updating this page in a few weeks when I have the final cut.

Lyrics
Sailing from the west by the light in the fire
Waiting for the boys to drop
Sailing from the west by the light in the fire
Waiting for the wars to start
See you little solider tall against the night sky
Look how the great wheel rocks
See you little soldier your eyes pale like the devil
When you see the great wheel stop

Thrashing through brush through the dust and the darkness
Didn’t know I would be this close
Thrashing through the brush through the dust and the darkness
As we walk half men half ghosts
Say you see a thin line god and the devil pull
Who do you trust the most?
Say you walk a thin line earth, hell, heaven, time
Turn away bled free of remorse

Who will be the sacrifice to the dead
Who will be the one who remembers?
To tell the stories left behind
Embers to ashes
Drain your glass of wine

Flash back to innocence your girl made little sense
Ready to feel the burn
Flash back to innocence your girl looks a little tense
When all her gifts turn to coal in your hands
Everything is fuel to burn, a fire spin, a war churn
Time to say goodbye
Everything is fuel to burn, a fire spin, a lighting storm
Sighted in the eastern sky

Night falls every hour then rushes away
Dreams aren’t for this world I say
Night falls every hour then rushes away
Dreams aren’t for this world

Very well written tune! Lots of great arrangement and subtlety. This is a top notch tune, can't wait to hear what the final version brings!!!
p.s. This reminds me of that movie Wicker Man.

dreams aren't for this world...
This is a great song! I like the guitar instrumental and really nice keyboard parts sprinkled in there just the right amount. The melody works really well. I agree with blindsidepoets about the wicker man ref. though I wouldn't have thought of that myself.

cool
enjoyed your song!
the chorus reminds me a bit of Neil Young circa "after the gold rush".
I like the way you fit words to a melody, or vise versa... "prosody" I think they call it? anyway, you're good at it.
look forward to more!
