Had some inspirado on my way home from work so I decided to lay down this little ditty. Ended up having more fun with it than I originally expected, but I think it turned great. All comments are welcome!!

(Verse 1)
I'm fit for release
If I ever get outta here
Shit's up to my knees
And it's slowly becoming clear
I could use some of your help
But you turn your back on me
I'm caught in the black
As I lose my right to see

Oh darkness please set me free

(Verse 2)
Lord send me away
I don't know where I want to go
As long as I stay
I'm a fork stuck in the road
Time it doesn't exist
When you got nothing to show
Crack me open inside
Forty five I'm ready to load

Oh momma don't let me explode

I build it up
You break it down
There ain't nothin' in the world for man when his livin' in a small town
I cut the cord
You call it in
What kind of life is a life worth living if I'm nothing but a has been

more than a has been
wow! that's a really nice crunchy sound going on. Everthing is really clear but with power to boot.
I wish I could get my rock recordings to sound like this..mind you if I had all the gear you listed I might be able to.
Very impressive arsenal of stuff.
I like your voice. A touch of Chris Cornell of Soundgarden and Randy California from the band Spirit but it doesn't sound like an imitation.
top notch production and playing

Love that big riff vibe. The guitars and your vocals shine.
End gave me goose bumps (in the good way :-).
