Description
Scott (scofugate) and I put together this song. I was commenting on a previous song about the struggles I was having with Mr Drum Machine and Scott suggested that he'd like to try laying down some drums to some of my stuff. Here's the first go. This song was a lot of ffun putting together. I did the easy stuff; Scott is the real work horse.

Scott (aka scofugate): mix and master
Scott: drums
Scott: bass
Mike (aka fasteddie): acoustic guitar
Mike: electric guitars
Mike: vocals

Lyrics
The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier

Soldiers who gave their lives
In selfless humility
Asking nothing in return
Fighting for you and me
The struggle to bring about
The values that we believe

The tomb of the unknown soldier
The tomb of the unknown

Humbly giving of themselves
Remaining nameless
Acting with great courage
Now honored and shameless
The names are not known
But their honor is never forgotten

(chorus)

Giving their lives for us
Making the ultimate sacrifice
Fighting for a belief
Fighting for what is right
The tomb of the unknown soldier
The tomb of the unknown


On the battle field they lay
No longer with name
Brazen from wounds
But never from shame
Walking boldly in the spirit
Of the hope they freely gave

(chorus)

The tomb of the unknown soldier

Cool
vocals and well done lyrics as well. Enjoyed it! I would suggest boosting the mids on the vox a bit and raising it in the mix a tad but great tune

I agree with the vox comment ....
... vox need to be a tad louder ... mix is a little hot .. but since I am slightly drunkish and deaf ... levels and loudness sound OK to me ... but reflecting on earlier comments on an earlier pimped tune .... some who listen might found it a little hot .... (I like it tho) ...
