Lyrics
horizon

i'm lookin down
from this tower
i see our town
i hear the power

the wind is singing
through the wires
electric humming
that never tires

the sky is very clear
it's hypnotizin'
why did i climb up here?
to see the horizon

it's getting dark
the red light is flashin'
i've left my mark
in my own fashion

it's time to climb back down
descend the rungs
again to touch the ground
to complete what i've begun

the sky is very clear
it's hypnotizin'
why did i climb up here?
to see my horizon

(c) 2008 Bill Grundmann

very nice
I like this song. I could feel you climbing the tower and imagined your hair blowing straight up from all the static around you. I hear the constant buzz and feel the fear of you being up so high. I really Loved your voice on this. Very smooth and entertaining. Nice guitar and just an all around Great job.

electric lyrics
love the music, and really love the "multi-level" lyrics... and good job singing this too. You drew nice parallels on the horizon with the van de graaff... my hair is still standing on end.
ttfn,

The other side of the mountain
over the horizon, I hear things are better.

Wonderfully evocative Bill.

You are so multi-faceted, Bill
Cool imagery in here, and you're brave. I'd be afraid of getting arc-ed. The guitar sounds rich, and the lyrics make me think about life.

...
the lyrics are very poetic. i like the light percussion sounds in the background it sort of gives the feel of people walking bellow the tower. the vocals sort of grow on you as the song goes on. they are rather timid with a dark quality. at first i wasn't sure about it but it starts to pull you in and fits the lyrics. it sort of gives the feeling of fear.

Autobiographical? I never did this one...but my friends dared me to. One of the few dares I wouldn't touch...

Choice of guitar with those great chord changes is perfect for the lyrics.

.
well, a buddy and i did climb up a huge water tower once as kids. the view from up there was incredible.

maybe there are some metaphors based on water towers, but high voltage cable towers have a lot more potential for metaphors...

thanks!

Just been listening to sonnyjim's take on this for the MJ Covers challenge, and I am very glad I was sent this way. A very cool song; love the song, and the vocal is great. Your voice over that lovely acoustic is just sweet. A great track. Sorry it took me so long to get here! Nice one. Peace.

Like dajama
I came to this via Sonny Jim's version. Good to hear the original. I guess that's partly what this contest is all about. Good stuff and nice lyrics!
