Description
I overheard someone using the saying' a little knowledge is a dangerous thing' and it seemed that the phrase could be seen as 'you're better off not knowing anything' and then I started thinking about how people reach a state of understanding..but never go any further with it...so it's about that..sort of.

Lyrics
See what you want to see
Believe, it's your way
Deny there's nothing wrong
to those you string along

But I could never be like this
thinking ignorance is bliss
A thought is followed by a thought
Rejecting all that I've been taught
and now you seem so sure
and now you've closed the door

You never put up a fight
You only know that what you know is right
Your silence is to agree
Your silent lack of liberty

But I could never be like this
thinking ignorance is bliss
A thought is followed by a thought
Rejecting all that I've been taught
and now you seem so sure
and now you've closed the door

It's true
you're happy here
A quiet life
Is your desire

But I could never be like this
thinking ignorance is bliss
A thought is followed by a thought
Rejecting all that I've been taught
and now you seem so sure
and now you've closed the door

great stuff
solid satisfying songwriting, well-thought-out and well-written lyrics, sung with attention-grabbing conviction, and perfect backing guitar/bass playing! I appreciated reading in your description, how you got to where you did with the lyrics, cool to climb inside your head a bit on this one. And I like the alternate way you looked at the phrase "a little knowledge..." as a catalyst for the lyrics. Excellent result!
ttfn,
Drakonis

interesting concept
Its a puzzling idea.Just recently Ive been wondering whether I should take a relationship wiv a woman who on the face of it seems completely nuts to me further or not.She's a really great musician/singer etc but at the price of lawlessness and sanity it seems as is often the case with creative types who leave behind reality it seems.I like to think I've been around the block enough to know what to do - but then again,is my experience or 'knowledge' just holding me back from something that could be wonderful - or is it just saving me from certain death? I dunno - nice one - youve summed up my dilemma - a relief - but no answers - and i wouldnt expect anyone to know,really.Thats the great adventure of life,I guess!

Its the kind of song that along with the rest of a set of songs by the same band I would quite happily while away a friday night to getting ratarsed and falling over then buying your cd - or annoy you by coming up to you and talaking bollocks - thats supposed to be a compliment by the way - I never do under any other circumstances - always think nah cant afford it.Then have a pint.

i sometimes make comparisons regardless of whether it annoys anyone or not so it reminds slightly of james - sleeping village for some reason.

great lyrics - structure - sound quality -

I bet you could do an excellent guitar solo in it though at some point - live or otherwise.I bask in the sincerity - something else I am reluctant of being - personally speaking in the public eye.

cheers - Rich

Interesting premise
and excellent song. Way to let go on the vocals - I hear a little Happy Mondays. Nice guitar work too.

C what u want 2 C.


Yeah
I like it but I am not professional
and I can only go by what I hear and this would be something i would listen to a few times. Excellent lyrics.
on my ipod on repeat I love it. Good Voice sang with conviction
and a tone of anger. I would not indeed close the door on this song.
thank you.

this might sound cliche,
but either sitar, nylon string guitar, or even a slightly distorted harp tone would rip during that intro..your gritty vox are nice. they are missing something, tho, and i cant put my finger on it... maybe too much decay? maybe not eq'ed with enough bottom? i dunno. they are great, but they kind of are seperate from the rest of the tone ion the mix. i liked the wicked game sounding solo... tasty.. leve;s are all great, nothing overpowers, it all sits in the pocket...your stuff is great, and worthy of a download for sure...

Geat tune
Great tune with a great message.

We got a lot of folks in this country with their heads in the ground. But suddenly, things seem a bit hopeful.

The youth in this country seem to be getting inspired enough to at least participate in throwing out the old guard who were asleep(some awake) at the wheel, allowing major damage to our country and constitution.

Hopefully, this spark will continue through the fall.

Thanks for your fire.
