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,

LOREN


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

Enjoyed my listen.

Great line!

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

I agree with Dave. Some great lines lyrically and guitar wise. I like the repeating guitar signature. Good job to you both, Tom

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

All very enjoyable. Love the house of the rising sun feel of the song.
Super guitars and the gritty vocal is just right.
Fine fine lyrics.
Thumbs up.
Cheers.
