Lyrics
Rolling Down

It's a sail!

Save an extra thirty percent,
Or twenty percent, or ten percent on

Everything.

And the fog rolls in...

Why don't you tell me why we're goin' to the ocean?
Why don't you tell me why we're goin' to the sea?
Rolling down to the sea.
...Twenty percent, or ten percent on everything...

Why don't you tell me why we're goin' to the ocean?
Why don't you tell me why we're goin' to the ocean?
Rolling down to the sea.
...And the fog rolls in: it rolls into your mind...

Why don't you tell me?
Why don't you tell me?
Rolling down to the sea.
Rolling down to the sea.

Why don't you tell me why we're goin' to the ocean?
Why don't you tell me why we're goin' to the sea?
Rolling down to the sea.
It's a sail!

And the fog rolls in; it rolls into your mind:
"Save an extra thirty percent, or twenty percent,
or ten percent on everything."

It's a sail!

Rolling down to the sea...

Far out Smokey
I love the vocals on this track - it's a whole new you. Very cool. I suspect that the punk guitars are your masterful keyboard licks. Great summer fun! Ya glad it's almost done?

wish summer would go on forever (not looking forward to my autumn days yet)

but summer sans commercialism - it's getting very hard to escape it nowadays

thanks Bud

This quite something Bill
Very impressive.

I really like the soundscapes you've created and how you've managed to keep away from rock cliches yet still made a real rocker.

Cheers

It's been a long time
Sorry it's been so long since I've checked out your stuff. Like tha vox fx's on this. Nice and kind of punky. Really enjoyed. Also like the bass line.

Yep. :-)
Does have that kinda "Coney Island barker" harsh commercialism feel to it. It's becoming harder to find a tranquil undeveloped spot. Maybe the dunes out on the Cape after mid - October. Cool Punk sort of grating on your nerves sound, Bill. :-)

Distorted Vocals are Sooooo Cool
Love the vocal sound. Great rock feel! And dig that over the top fuzz guitar. Nice bass too. A bit of Entwistle in there!

Very cool vocal effect against the verby, crunchy guitar and that pound in your face tom tom riff. This is pretty trippy. Excellent! Like your description....
