"A terrific yarn" sums it up :o)

Instrumental version, unmastered- extended version with vocals may come, if I can ever get more time and a happy 'lyric to vocal' line working :(

Trouble living’
Feeling small enough
To stow away in a ship in a bottle.
Passed the point of caring (onto anyone else)
You’re free to sail down, down, down the drain

Of the anti-thesis
Of what you wanted to be
Diz-zy from turning around (to see yourself)
You can-not face the mir-ror any-more.

Stowaway, stowaway, stowaway-yay

When playing
To your weaknesses
Any port is your calling
If you’ll admit
You don’t know what you’re doing
Then we can- begin.

Stowaway, stowaway, stowaway-yay

Thanks Charlene!

Anyone still around here? Haven't posted anything in ages - felt good to share something I'd been working on on/off a little a time (in between parenting) for several months.. and still < 3mins .. ridiculous :)

Thanks Antonio!
Hit some snags with the above lyrics and (ambitious for my abilities) vocal melody- need more time to address with some sacrificial adjustments probably. I did the rhythm guitar tracks today and was just quite pleased with this mix (before I messed it up with 'rough vocals' .. and I hadn't posted anything for months- was good to just stop in if only to make a musical "hello".

Prog rock?
Tightly controlled and well put together.

It'll be interesting see where this goes.

It does have some prog rockish elements- perhaps a side-effect of playing the drums now, so I'm glad overall it sounds tight enough.. I did get slightly off grid with this drum pattern and glock (which made things complicated) but I stuck it out for a more human touch/feel and if anything, drum wise, I was inspired by the Foo Fighters (Taylor Hawkins) style I felt I may have suffered from having too many ideas I wanted to try with this song and was at the point of forgetting some of them before I even captured them in some manner. I hope it goes somewhere in 2016 (I am consciously aware of accumulating more and more unfinished works these days.. sigh.. sign of the times). The vocals start at around 40s in and I can just about sing 'a' vocal melody in 2 registers...the higher one is what I really want ..but I lack the puff to pull it off.
