Where Did All Our Heroes Go

We all watch from afar for just a little sign of light
But the curtains are drawn and they're pulled close tight
From the highest of the high to the lowest of the low
Where we once saw hope we can only find fear and hate
From hope to fear to hate
Oh where did all our heroes go
From hope to fear to hate
Oh where did all our heroes go
From the Hollywood hills to the Bowery slums
We've searched high and low but there ain't no one
Oh the silver screen has a verdigris sheen

Countless million carbon atoms floating round the sky
But in god you trust the truth you do deny
We used to look to you as a guiding light
But your just the same let the blind lead the blind
From hope to fear to hate
Oh where did all our heroes go
From hope to fear to hate
Oh where did all our heroes go

We all watch from afar for just a little sign of light

Where did they go indeed.

Like Greg said "cool vocal and nice arrangement!"

The mandolin works very well.

We enjoyed this!

Good song! I liked the lyrics alot and the vocal has a nice engaging feel.
I listened to a few other tracks from your SoundCloud- very enjoyable (I especially liked your version of Lord Franklin).
It seems you have a you have an interesting ongoing collaboration-I look forward to more.

I really like this a lot! I didn't think I was going to like it as much as I do by just reading the lyrics - what a cool song and sound. And I love James' voice and the way he sings this. The arrangement and production is perfect. Sounds like something Paul Simon wrote and sang.

Great collab! Hope to hear more from you two.

I want really thank you all. You all are very kind.

I live in Sicily, James in Scotland. We both aren't very young smile This song came from our discussions and our worries about what's happening in the last months (Brexit, U.S...) and what could happen (...hopefully not...) next months/years in several other European Countries. So, you may consider it as a political song, by some degree...

James had the great ability to transform our thoughts into lyrics.

Thanks again

Alfredo

Alfredo & James,

Enjoyed the listen. Interesting to hear an outside view. A good write.
Had the feel of a Springsteen lyric/song form his later acoustic periods..
