The Wind is Lost

Description
I put this tune on the back burner a couple of years ago. Eventually, it ended up in a Tupperware container in the fridge. Anyway, I was cleaning out the refrigerator last week and opened up this container and it didn't stink that bad. Then I heated it up in the Mac and this is what came out. Gourmet stuff? -No, but you can eat it.
The production is kinda' weird I must say, but different.

I'll be doing a bunch of new songs very shortly. I hope you'll dig my new batch of songs for the second half of 2009. I might also open a few more containers to see what I have. Who knows?

I don't know how I came up with these lyrics if you are wondering.

*I'm still having HUGE problems accessing MJ lately. It still locks up or is incredibly slow. So, I apologize if I have missed a few of your tunes. I will try catch up, if MJ allows me. It's been really frustrating.

Lyrics
The Wind is Lost

The wind is lost at such a cost
Just look around and see what is found
Under the ground, rainbow is broken
I have just spoken to the angels of God

And what they said of untying thread
Has turned to red, right over their heads
They sing and dance, don’t stand a chance
With unbalanced jubilation

We want it back, a second chance
They can’t do what we can, so we’re making a plan
We liberate; we don’t have to wait
We gravitate to the angels of God

The wind is lost at such a cost
Just look around and see what is found
Under the ground, rainbow is broken
I have just spoken to the angles of God

This is unmistakably you. I am hearing something in the background, is it vocals? Very nice. I really like the organ at the beginning. I have to catch up too. I think I missed your last one.

Nice
I really like the sound of the vocals on this one. Neat chord progression right after the verse.
It seems well produced to me... some neat guitar effects on the solo part. (that was a guitar right?)
Overall cool song!

Glad you liked the guitar bit. I always end up playing a blues thing. so I opted for a trippy thing. I think that fit the song much better.

Cool that you liked this. Thanks.

Great
Great stuff, man. Love the melodic sweet intro and then that kicking guitar rips into life. Very cool. Nice lyrics (however you came up with them!) - I especially like 'We gravitate to the angels of God' - excellent line. This has anthemic power, and stirring sound. Superb. Keep digging in the fridge, my friend! Nicely done. Peace.

Dave!
I always truly appreciate all your comments. Glad you liked the lyrics too. I have a bunch of stuff in back in fridge. I have about 34 songs written that I haven't even recoded yet. And about 2 or 3 on the back burner and a dozen in the fridge (They often have some production issue or I have too many sour notes.)

"A Man" was actually a "back burner" song. And I grateful what you did with it. Thanks for that.

so
I'm not the first, and I'm sure I won't be the last... but those crazy guitar leads are the bees knees. I was getting an INXS vibe on the vocals... and then a late 90's Brit-pop thing going on with the music. All told, this is one of your best of 2009.

Spector meets Sabbath?!
Tupperware is right up there with Duct tape--and this tune ain't got no mold on it. It's got a really interesting, deep wall-of-drone, sort of like Phil Spector might have applied if he were to go psychedelic following his Top 40 heyday. (He was convicted a week or so ago, btw, and will likely die in jail.) Anyway, as I digest it I find myself savoring that neat-o chorus feel that Ozzy used to have in those early Black Sabbath outings. This tune, if it were Sabbath (LOL) would be next to Spiral Architect on the Sabbath Bloody Sabbath album.

Sorry this message references sources OUTSIDE your music; I can't penetrate this song directly, but it's a good one.

Black Sabbath
I never thought I'd be compared to the Blackies, I've heard the Spector comments before. I dig that. We I have a simple song, sometimes I like to build a sound wall.

Glad you came by.
