Lyrics
Leaving Flesh

Leaving flesh gates the soul,
like a bird that soars with grace,
like a worm that leaves the hole,
taken to an extraordinary place.

Give your all until the dawn.
Take what little stuff you need.
Smile until the shades are drawn,
knowing well that you've planted the seed.

Gift of knowing, gift of feeling.
Golden orb, precious sight.
Life's abrasions the sun is healing
for those who simply step out into the light.

What is money? What is power?
Lust and vengeance, blood and bile?
Selfless motives don't devour.
Look for treasure in a neighbor's smile.

Lyrics ©2006 Richard C. Schletty

Thank you
It is up to us to thank you, Richard. Without your voice it would not be half as
good as it is...

Yes...
Beautifully written, played and sung... Such good advice, too; getting
back to what is really important- giving instead of taking, soaring
above the rat race of amassing treasures on Earth. Very nice, guys!

Everything at once
Your voice is just right on this, Richard. Simple, forceful, honest,
believing, certain, searching, wanting, satisfied. All at once. Well done.
And the violin is so nice. Wonderful track.

Lyrics
Absolutely love the Lyrics!
I always like piano, which is very good intro and you have a beautiful voice too.
The song sounds too church-like for my taste but it's still very good.

Thanks for your words, Annalia. Yes, church-like. I've been singing in church
a helluva lot longer than I've been singing in cafés and bars.

You already know...
that I like this... wonderfuf collaboration. Your melody line is superb,
as are your lyrics. Very choice. You are in a zone... and it certainly
helps to have such a beautiful music arrangement as a backdrop. So
kudos to Steiner and Anselm. A great team.

How could you have known I was in the zone? Yes, the overhead fluorescent
lights were off and it was a quiet Friday pre-dawn, unfettered by stuff.

Simply great
I really enjoy when the piano comes in. I'm a sucker for piano. Do I
hear some sort of organ in the background? I liked that. Maybe bring
that up a tad further in the mix? The strings are beautiful and finish the
song nicely. Your voice is what carries this tune though, congrats

Thanks, BranDaMan. Good suggestion on the instrumentation.

enjoyed this
Nice going ! Enjoyed the guitar fingerpicking. Wish you would be more
discriptive in the backround sounds like what type of guitar?
Very enjoyable to listen to.

enjoyed this
Thanx, tiler. Such a nice feedback from YOU...normally I play Hanika and Takamine guitars. In this case I used a Yamaha CGX117CCA. It was recorded by two Rode NT-5 mics. I use a dbx 386 pre-amp in general. Hope this helps...

Conviction
There is something about the strong conviction of the performers that always shines through. And this piece is full of conviction. From the imagery of the lyrics, to the solidity of the music. And most of all the conviction in Richards vocals.

Resonant and heart-warming.

Thank you, Charliechen. We're simply trying to excite the somnambulant.

Heart felt vocal
Upon a rich musical bed lay a very heart felt vocal. Nicely executed.

While Ik dinged it on some minor points like track noise, and guitar gain.
It seemed to me tthat it balanced well as more instrumentation fell in. So
I shrug my shoulders and say well done.
