Description
Well, I don't like the way this song turned out very much, but spent so much time with it that I thought I should post it anyway. I think it's time to get back to the straight up dirty Rock n' Roll. Cheers!

Lyrics
"your money is not everything"
said the rich man to his son
"it's not about what you bring in
it's about what you have done"

"you are not your fancy clothes
and you are not your home
you are not your possessions
it isn't what you own"

"so I'm telling you
and you know it's true
you will get what you deserve
coming to you"

"I've taken all of your advice"
said the son to his father
"invested in my future life
but it's gotten me nowhere"

"now you're telling me to stop
and count all my blessings
when you have used up all your own
to secure your place as king"

"so I'm telling you
and you know it's true
you will get what you deserve
coming to you"

Very satisfying track to these ears
but I know what it feels like to work and work on something and still not find the sound you had in your head. I'm guessing in time you'll come back and dig this tune for solid song it is.

King's Spppeech
Very Pinball-ie but if you can get past that is has a very cool sparkling sparseness to it that is very tasty. Love the lyrics and the cover art as well. OK, now go rock. I'm hungry for that ridd magic.

The King's Speech
Cool arrangement. I like the way you featured the acoustic. Conversational lyrics have a cautionary message. Laid-back vocal, nice melody line.

The son's speech
Love the bright guitar, and your vocal is warm and subtle - probably a bit too much though, I'd have it more forward in the mix so we can hear those thought-provoking lyrics.

Worth the wait...
The build up is worth the wait. Your vocals work perfectly in this song and the lyrics are first class. I think you will find that this does grow on you. It has obviously been well received by many MJ'ers. It is a fine post. Take care, Peter.

Don't know what you're on about.....well, I do.
Self doubt about our own material but no one else seems to hear it.
Apart from I would have liked the bass to come in on the 2 part of the intro this is brilliant.
I love the guitars ( both elecrtic and acoustic)
Great stuff
cheers
