Description
No long description this time--just a song about relationships that seem to fade over time.
This is my first submission playing the drums since my surgery. It felt good to bash the kit around a little. =)

Lyrics
I guess it's time for clearing the air
I'm sure you'll think it's neither here nor there
It seems it happened, it happened again
You found yourself losing a friend

What will you do now?

Sometimes I know it's hard to admit
The best intentions don't really mean shit
It's one of those things that's easy to fake
But there's a time to give what you take

What will you do now?

I feel the tide rising inside
Gone without a sound

What will you do now?

Great distortion tone on the guitars. A crazy little rocker. Good luck with the rehab! Sounds like you are on the mend for sure.

The fuzz drenched guitar sound in the opening verse had me recalling late 60s hard rockers like Steppenwolf and Iron Butterfly. From there it just got heavier. Love the chorus! Those mini moog-ish monophonic synth lines are way cool. Production and mix to be proud of!

Thanks, Alan. I'm still having some trouble generating a fat low end in the mix, but I'm working on it. It sounds beefy in Logic, but it thins out after posting. I'm happy you dropped by for a listen.

Well yer
bashing sounds good as ever! Seems like a full recovery has been made! Cool tune. I really liked the vocals and the way they sit in the mix on this. Nicely done.

Hi Mark. Thanks for your comments. I'm not very confident in my vocals, but I knew they had to be up front for this one. IN the end I just went for it and hoped for the best. Thanks for dropping by.

Some edgy non-standard chord choices mixed in there give this a unique flavor. I was admiring the punchy drum work then saw that you played them yourself. Yowza. Yer good. Good tight composition, good vocal performance. Catchy.

Thanks for the compliment about the drumming, even though I don't think I'm that good. If I was capable of playing on one of your compositions, then I'd be good! I appreciate you stopping by for a listen.

Didn't realize you were such an accomplished drummer...Solid percussion track here.

You vocals remind me of B.O.C.(one of my favorite bands)...Now that I listen again the structure and chord progressions have a B.O.C. feel as well.Great tune from top to bottom man!

Thanks for your feedback, although "accomplished" is something I've never considered myself. I love BOC, and if I can evoke their memory, well, that's more than enough for me! =) I appreciate you dropping by.

Live drums, my gosh!? Awesome. And solid guitar too, great riff. I'd like to hear some jamming over that at the end though (minor gripe).

Thanks for taking time to listen. It means a lot. I also appreciate the feedback. I'll have to start working on my jamming skills! Cheers

I'm so glad you dropped by for a listen. This isn't nearly as polished as your work, so I'm glad you found something redeeming in this song. Take care.

excellent edgy music - i really dig that synth sound - especially at 1:46. you're wailing this out like you really mean it, and i'm truly convinced.
lots of energy in a dynamic mix - enjoyed this,
Anne

Yeah, I kind of let my vocals go loose on this. I'm still not sure about it, but in this particular case it seemed OK. Thanks so much for taking a listen. It means a lot.

What do they say the road to hell...yeah, a good lesson for all of us is that actions are more important than words. It was painful playing the drums, but a lot of fun. Glad you dropped by.
