Lyrics
King midas and his golden touch
learnt this lesson long ago
And yet it bears repeating
All that glitters is not gold
wealth cannot fill the hole
where your heart was once beating

Swallow the sun, Come darkness spread your cloak
Over the light gleaming fitfully
Swallow the sun, Nero tunes his fiddle in the fire's light

When all that's left is death, and even he is cheated by technology
With the passing of the crown, we shall all bow down to the god of greed.

The truth-so cold…
Not all men are created equally
It is meet and right, that some shall rise and fall
and most shall toil in obscurity

How much will you let them take
For a false sense of security?
Soon all we'll do is pay-
Pay for their luxuries

Swallow the sun, Come darkness spread your cloak
Over the light gleaming fitfully
Swallow the sun, Nero tunes his fiddle in the fire's light

When all that's left is death, and even he is cheated by technology
With the passing of the crown, we shall all bow down to the god of greed.

Swallow the sun, Come darkness spread your cloak
Over the light gleaming fitfully
Swallow the sun, Nero tunes his fiddle in the fire's light

When all that's left is death, and even he is cheated by technology
With the passing of the crown, we shall all bow down to the god of greed.

I hear you Adam
it's getting worse. But don't give up man, do what you can and as much as you can to fight back. Including writing heartfelt protest songs (and other cool music ;-)

Cool lyrics
and as always, cool and dark feel to the tune.

Your vocals are sincere and effective, as i have come to expect from you, though i would not say that this is your most compelling melodic structure. It is the hardest aspect of songwriting, i think, and i am certainly not saying i could do any better, but the lyrics are just a tad let down to my ear.

i am tempted to consider trying to come up with an alternative line that might suit your unique style; i don't know if you would welcome that or not, because i do like this song.

Nevertheless, as a protest piece, which doesn't necessarily call for the sweetest melodic refinement, but requires heartfelt delivery, this does pack a good punch anyway.

Thanks as always for the post

Keep faith, friend,

There may not be solutions for the world,

But peace can calm a heart every now and then, miraculously, with intimations of great things to come.

Thanks
For in depth response. I tried to use a different type of scale here, and it may or may not be super effective. I just like the way it sounded. On the other hand I've got my sense of humour back today it seems.
