Description
I suppose this song is about getting lied to or something, I don't know.

Guitar and harmonica and some knuckle based rhythm.

Lyrics
We're going down that road
Reactions are all slowed
I can't stand it
I think you know it well
When the streams begin to swell
I can't stand it
We've gone this way before
Kind of like a mental Civil War
When it gets too deep to gauge
You stab me with a trenchant gaze
A circumstance of an ugly score
You turn around and ask for more
I can't stand it
This indignity can and will not stand
I'll leave you gasping, writhing in the sand
It's like you just can't understand the truth
Your reality is crooked and uncouth
We're going down that road
Spouting things we'll never know
I can't stand it
You gesticulate with wild grace
To cover for your lying face

I love the raw sound you are capturing.
I am there with all the family jamming on the big front porch. Man this brings back memories.
The harmonica is outstanding.

I felt the groove from the first chord, and it sustains beautifully to the end. I love the space in this. Nice bit 'o songwriting, too. Cool post

raw and honest sound
this is a well-captured performance . I love your guitar tone playing but would like to heard more of it. I thought the harp was excellent but just too loud in sections. I'll be checking out your other tunes.

I have a friend you should meet!
K, I wouldn't normally drop a link in a comment, but otherwise you would not know who I'm talking about. Your stuff and his is similar in content (not the same, just reminiscent), and I think you'd enjoy it. I sure do, and likewise I love your stuff too! Keep it up, I'm very much enjoying what I've heard so far.
