Hi Bob,

What a great song, fantastic arrangement and brilliant production! Your singing is superb and the harmonies are terrific.

Verse 1 is spectacular. It really pulled me into the song. The way in which you've assembled the list of items in increasing order of importance is perfect! Cole Porter (list song expert) couldn't have done better. And that opening metaphor ... He's an awkward line from an unfinished poem... it contains such a wealth of information and imagery. That's inspired writing indeed.

Truly excellent.

All the best,
Noel

"He's an awkward line
From an unfinished poem
A forgotten man
With no way home
In a crowded world
He is all alone
There but for the grace of God."

Mr. Burke... you blew me away with that.
Every line. Every word.

Loved the arrangement. And I always dig your vocals...

You make this look easy.

Well done. I like how you craft the lyrics on this one.

Lots of folks tend to slip through the cracks of society.... great job and introspective view on this topic.

very touching song Bob.. thought provoking and a little bit disturbing. Music needs to do that to us sometimes. Good job.

Most excellent. When poetic lyrics "work" it is
a wonderful thing. And this is an example
of them working and working wonderfully well.

Like Pat said, "thought provoking."

Sounds like a lot of heart went into both the
write and the vocal.

Mix sounds great on the KRK's.

Kudos!

Bob,
Listened to your song.
Much has been said, I couldn't agree more...

Sometimes a song is destined to be an anthem, this song to me, feels like one!

Congratulations,

see you around,

Fred
