Lyrics
I’m Tired Of…

i’m tired of prowlers at my back door
i’m tired of preachers on my front porch
i’m tired of addicts beggin’ for so much more
i’m tired of free offers to clean my floor

i want to lock the door
and hold the world at bay
i look out my window
and they just won’t go away

i’m tired of opinions no matter what
tired of the media
i’m tired of politics… la la la la la
i’m tired of myself, just for being me

i want to lock the door
and hold the world at bay
i look out my window
and they just won’t go away

i’m tired of the hype is your life complete
i’m tired of ego’s who’s only goal is defeat
i’m tired of intruders that target me

i want to lock the door
and hold the world at bay
i look out my window
and they just won’t go away

As I listened I kept thinking it must have been a blast to play those guitar parts! I can't imagine you'd ever get tired of that feeling.

A-friggin'-mazing...
I'm tired! The best keeps getting better. (no slide?) Well, Vic, where do you go from here? The front and back door are covered. Into the studio where they can't reach you. Babbling on, I am... Great song. Take the Grammy and run.

this is excellent
I'm dealing with having to perform in changing time signatures with a new outfit - and damn it is kicking my ass. I love what you've done here and the guitars and vox sound great as usual. Also dig the mallet instrument.

thanks kevin
the verse part is 7/8 that one really keeps you on your toes. there is also 6/4 & 4/4 time. so it was a mix bag.

but yeah, keeping count and playing, plus listening to the others must be a big challenge. it would drive me nutty

Wow! What a dose of reality. I think everyone can identify and this song carries the message. Lots of interesting guitar work here. You always have a really broad palette of guitar sounds and you work them all together masterfully. Nice!

paul f. page said 1323 days ago (January 4th, 2014)
Beyond my scope...
...but this does pound ahead musically with some very nice guitar work and unexpected chording that is most appealing. The message of the lyrics echos what many of us feel about the incessant intrusions on our privacy. Antidote: throw away your phone; boycott the mall; give your computer a rest; pay cash. I wish I could follow my own advice. ... Solid song; solid mix; solid production.

well, i don't have a cell phone so that's a start. and some pretty odd characters do tend to show up on the doorsteps. maybe if i paint my house black to give it a menacing look

the bass
.... that really took some time to get it to stand up in the mix. i'm pretty sure this is the first time i actually used 7/8 ( in the verse sections) does have a cool tension to it.

Man I really dig that 7/8 feel, Vic - and your lyrics are playful and full of hidden truths. Excellent work, as is usually the case with you - really enjoyed this one, Vic - thanks!
