Behind the Bars (with thoddi)

Get Flash to see this player.

This new version (more of a re-creation) features macjammer thoddi on harmonica, background vocals, lead guitar, and bass. I feel incredibly lucky that he was willing to contribute his skilled musicianship to the song.

I'm flailing against the walls of my captors,
But they're not listening, no.
I'm flailing against the walls of my captors,
But they're not listening

Then I realize
They're behind the bars with me,

Outside these walls lies a world unknown,
sung of only in cheerful tones
I have a small window in this room
I always look, expecting to see you

But you're behind the bars with me.

This song is of those who
I've always given agency to
There are no captors holding me still
Only the shadows of my will

They're behind the bars with me.
Now I realize,
they're behind the bars with me.
You're behind the bars with me,

Thanks for letting me in on your song. It was fun playing to. Listening now, I feel I've put a bit to much guitar at some places... But when I have fun jamming along, its hard not to...;)

Really liking this
Such a cool odd song and now with more depth... to me it's the
harmonica that stands out- this song was written for the harp, without
question. I really love the way this is sung. Excellent enhancements Thor.

This song is totally funky and very, very cool!
