Hi Everyone,
I wrote this song last year - it is a little bit different being a little scientific, a little philosophical, a little crazy - well give it a listen and any comments are welcome.

http://www.box.net/shared/0dgqr6b19d

The words are :

Thoughtful Thoughts

The whole world is atoms but is that all?
The river runs dry when the rain doesn't fall
The sun in the sky gives way to the moon
It could drive us all crazy sometime soon
But why should I know inside my head
What my mind in my head to my body said
The rainbow looks out over the land
Do the spaces exist between each grain of sand?

The world expands into what you may ask
The water runs dry in the large open cask
The stars at night no more exist in the day
This crazy nonsense provides a debt to pay
But why should I know inside my head
What my mind in my head to my body said
If you don't laugh you may not be sad
There are many things in between to be had

Did you know that the entire human race
With no spaces could fit into a small watch case
That the faster you travel the slimmer you get
Your common sense is not sophisticated yet
But why should I know inside my head
What my mind in my head to my body said
Science can be stranger than fiction
I say this without fear of contradiction

The world gets older but from where did it come?
There was a mighty big bang it is said by some
The day dreams are different from those at night
The light of the moon can inspire new insight
But why should I know inside my head
What my mind in my head to my body said
We get older as time on the clock ticks away
The arrow of time cannot retrace its way

Hope you like it
Jim

Very nicely done friend. Everything sounds nice and clean here. Great job with the backing and putting the pen to paper for this one. Way to go.

I agree with Trax, this is a very good piece of work! The backing tracks are very good. Your vocal is strong and your lyrics are top notch.

Two thumbs up.
