They flash their hidden meanings like blinks of an eye at a burning sun. Listening to the song is like staring at a painting until it begins changing and morphing into one scene after another. It's a bit of an hallucinatory experience of words and sound that ends up feeling like it could go on, forever.

Entranced,

Thanks Loren for checking out the song. What a cool description of the lyrics. Robert can certainly turn a few words into a vivid visual journey...

Forum collabs are a cool way to create a musical synthesis of different ideas and performances - this is a fine example of that.

Great performances and write y'all.

Went down nicely with the morning cup of joe!

PS: Catchy title/hook

Thanks for checking out the song. Glad you liked it

A happy accidental find turns into a collaboration. That's a great mix and it worked wonderfully.

Enjoyed my listen.

I like the transition into the heavy part. Track sounds good, as does your guitar work. Overall a good listen!




Thanks Dave for checking out the song. I have really enjoyed these collaborations Hopefully we be able to take part in some more in 2018

WOW!!! What a great collab. You guys really put something special together here. Your influences are both very clear and they marry beautifully in this song with a wonderful older rock feel (the old rock was the best rock!). Excellent guitar soloing, great vocal, and trippy lyrics to complete the package. AWESOME!!! Take care. Greg
