Description
If you're a Lou Reed fan, you may like this. As I developed the melody, I just cracked up about how my sound came out! I decided not to fight it...

It's still very rough. I'll return to this one, when I get some time. But most will understand that when you got a minute, you gotta take advantage.

Here it is! Enjoy!

Lyrics
I won't get lost
'cause I'm living in a dream
gotta chip on my shoulder
as I'm rollin' down a stream
and I'm cold and I rock
if you're seein' what I mean
but I got no way to get there

'cause I cut all the lines
and the ties with the thieves
who, to gain some capitol,
they clamored over me
and I'm barely alive
with nothing to breath
so there ain't no way to get there

I can't run
I can't hide
the things that I've seen
I won't even try
Deep in my heart
I cannot deny
But for now I'll just fly

And although through my days
getting caught up by the phrase
that I wouldn't understand
how their money really pays
and I walk for the walk
and I stumble through the haze
'cause I got no way to please them

So I'll walk on my own
and I'm never going home
'till I can figure out my route
it's an ever growing poem
it's the story of my life
it's my life that's my home
and there ain't no one to make it

I can't run
I can't hide
the things that I've seen
I won't even try
Deep in my heart
I cannot deny
But for now I'll just fly

Sounds like a hell of a start Doug
Love that kinda draggy back beat played against the fire from the hip, rapid fire lyrics, man that is just too cool.

Can't wait to see what you do when you get a little time on your hands. Ought to be awesome my friend.

Hey Ed!
Thanks so much! I'm most concerned with the lyric deliveries, here. There are some definite refinement that needs to happen.

Funny, I came up with the words somewhat on the fly and didn't try them out until most of the tune was recorded. It was a real shift in mindset to get the rhythms out!

Nice soundscape
I like the double tracked vox how'd u do that? especially liked the verses, bells are a good touch they fit in nicely.

Nice to see you Tom!
I duped the vocals, panned each left and right, offset the right channel and set a certain amount of echo on both sides. I like the bells, too! Thanks.

Looking good
as a draught for you to come back to... certainly worth a return as the pattern is there now. Surprising how things quickly leave your mind if you don't get them down there and then. I've lost songs so often by not doing that. Guitars and voice sound great, so look forward to hearing the final song: good lyrics too, regards M

Thanks Maurice!
I usually strive for a certain richness. That way I don't have to worry so much about hiss and buzz... it's built in! ;)

sonnyjim said 2949 days ago (October 24th, 2009)
I cracked up, too!
Dead-on Lou! But with a very un-Lou-like new wave chorus (the fork in the career path that Lou didn't take?). That novelty aside, it's a cool track with great vocal delivery and infectious, snaky guitars. If you post further developments of this one, please leave this original version....

Cheers,

SJ

yeah, I feel some Lou Reed here
the vocals are well done (I never hard panning like this, it works so well).
I'd like to have heard some more natural percussion here though

Thanks Dan!
Thanks, man! Glad you dig the treatments. I've considered finding percussionist to enhance some of my tunes. Time issues, mostly. Do you do drums?

Rough makes it a little easier... But, in certain cases, it is right. Thanks for listening!

v. enjoyable song!

I don't think it's too rough, like it the way it is.

Doadars Uncle said 2949 days ago (October 25th, 2009)
Thanks, man!
Yeah, I had to observe restraint, as I wanted to echo everything to death. But I managed to hold myself on track. It's funny thinking about sounding relaxed while putting some spark to the meter of the lyrics. But I'm glad it worked. Thanks for the listen.

Psychedelic!
This is pretty psychedelic Doug! Love the chorus! That echo might be a little heavy in spots but I like where you are going! Definitely come back and revisit this one! I know exactly what you mean about taking advantage of time when you have it! This also sounds a little like Bowie is spots. Pretty neat!

I wondered about the echo, with the offset track. But it's all experimental. Thanks for the kind words!

Glad you had a minute! Although this rough take works, you really should develop this to the max Doug. You're on to something here...a kind of magic.

Be well friend!

Wow this is so sweet (jane)
Love the feel and the lyrics and the woozy sway and spot on vocals. No need to return as far as I'm concerned - I think you nailed it. Excellent. I can't explain how much I needed to hear this right now. Thanks.

Hey Bud!
Thanks for swinging by! There are just a couple of tiny points that gnaw at me that I'll probably address. Plus, Dan is vitalizing my percussion. I can't wait!

Thanks!

Lou
I really like this. The guitars sound so big and 100% NYC. Your voice is great and I like the changes in pace, from the quick and wordy parts, to the drawn out singy parts.

Thanks for the download.

Thanks Bob!
I actually had the chorus parts figured out weeks before any other part of the tune. The rest of the lyrics came out during to sessions of sitting on the couch with my acoustic guitar. Once in the flow, it did... flow!

Doug
you never cease to amaze these days! Reed meets Bowie - love it! I wouldn't even think about re-visiting this - what are you going to do, make an chamber quartet version something?
JUST RIGHT!

Agree with Jiguma
Lou Reed-like and then in the chorus it's like Bowie. Full of life, and such a hot guitar. And a terrific production too. Good one!!
