Lyrics
we, the unwilling
led by the unknowing
are doing the impossible
for the ungrateful

we have done so much
for so long
with so little
we are now qualified
to do anything
with nothing

Good Gracious
Climbing the sonic stairs, unbending...wondered when the lyrics would show...perspiring with anticipation...then, the words came and delivered the crushing truth.

I thought I was feeling stressed before I hit play? There's nothing soothing about this one. But that's not what you were going for were you? Intense piece! Quality production and mix. The guitar tone is really great.

this has personal meaning for me in several conflicting ways that i doubt i could ever express fully in words... and i suspect people who know me would each glimpse only a single angle on it - if that makes any sense

thanks

guitar tone
the guitar tone was done using the hammered dulcimer synth with compression and run through the AU distort. i did two tracks both with flange, but set to slightly different speeds

I can relate to this in more ways than
I care to admit. Events of late have added new layers of meaning to parenting and being a worker among workers. Excellent expression Bill - great orchestration.

recasting Mother Teresa's words is rather disturbing in itself, but you add the music and tone and the picture... well, that's where i was that day. thanks for hearing

I've heard those lyrics before
when I was in the military as I recall, but I can't remember whether it was Army Rangers or the Marine Corp that used it but it was definitely military.

Very dark and full of anticipation, Bill. Takes me places I didn't want to revisit, but needed to in spite of myself.

Thanks for that my friend

Demented with a touch of class.
You set-up a great growl up top... what next? Great dark mood pervades as you take us through those slo-mo shred guitar tones, somber strings and -- there you go -- that dark vocal preach-out. Nice bit of twisted-shrapnel lyrics. Strange audience, where's the humor? The audience IS the humor. Demented with a touch of class. I was waiting to hear, "They're coming to take me away ho-ho ha-ha, to the funny farm where life is beautiful all the time...!"

Holy Hannah!
Geez Bill... This is foreboding as hades!

Jaw-droppingly GOOD...

Be well friend!

Very evil
and ominous sounding music here. Very cool how it strips away to the heavy guitar part. Cool piece, would this be considered art rock? Has elements you would hear in old horror movie to me. Very intriguing!

Wow, those whole notes are ominous like that. This is really cool, psychedelic.

Definitely...
art rock a la Smokey. Interesting mix. I can't quite wrap my head around it, and to me, that's the sign of a good mix. Quite artful indeed, sir.

Missed this.
But, now I'm on edge. And, it is late at night. Very successful and definitely scary. Konstantin Josef Jirecek, a Czech politician, wrote that. It is, oddly, inspiring. Thanks.
