Lyrics
Sticks and Stones (c)2008daveimms

We grew up together
but we lived on different streets
we lived on never never
and had to hit the beat

When times got so hard
my dad sold sold his car
yours he got a payrise
and drank it at the bar

Sticks and Stones
may break my bones
but this strife
will never hurt me
high and rise may taint your eyes
but lifes prize may never find you

We're living in a world
where some kids have no food to eat
and we're always told
you have to chew your meat

Then i got to thinking
things aren't so bad
when you look around you
this place is gold clad

Sticks and Stones
may break my bones
but this strife
will never hurt me
high and rise may taint your eyes
but lifes prize may never find you

Love it
I really like this. the only thing I might like to see is your vocals up in the mix a little more, they're a just a little bit swamped at the moment. I love the lyrics, though - very true!

Very nice Dave!
The sound bed starts out so clean and cool. It gets a little busy during the chorus. But still a good sound.

The vocals sound ok to me in the headphones level wise.

All in all a cool song! Nicely done!

I agree timely lyrics. Hard times indeed.
Cool song. Has an 80's rock new wave sound, very cool to my ears. I suspect you could hear vocals better by EQ'ing few of the tracks that are encroaching on the vocals. This IMHO would be a better way to bring them out rather than cranking up the vocals, which are already at a pretty good level. Just rmy 2 cents.
