Hi all, this is a recent song in a Fiddle Rock style that was inspired by Qanon, I had certain politicians in mind when I wrote it - and they certainly know all about a good fiddle.

WWG1WGA :-)

My very dodgy vocal is just a guide as I'm not really a singer! but the band is excellent.

On screen lyric video at:

Cheers,
David

When The Walls Come Down
When the walls come down
Will you stand your ground
When the rubble starts to fall
Will it worry you at all
Or will you just walk away, say it's not to do with me
Ignoring all the blood, pretend your hands are clean
When the walls come down

When the people turn
And they will when they learn
Of all the things you've done
There'll be nowhere to run
You can't hide from the truth, It's gonna hunt you down
No matter where you go, You can never sleep sound
When the people turn

Chorus
I believe life has a way
To make the guilty pay
And justice has you in it's sight
It's too late for you to change
All the pain to come your way
And nothing you can do to fight

The time will come for you to face
All those choices that you made

When the truth comes to call
You'll hear the knocking on the door
And it's the sound of doom
You'll recognise it soon
It won't be safe for you, to walk upon the street
Coz everyone will know you're complicit in deceit
When the truth comes to call

Repeat Chorus

The time will come for you to face
All those choices that you made
The time has come for you to pay
No better time No better place

Thanks Scott, much appreciated. I wasn't sure if the vocal was a bit dodgy with trying to sound gruff but I think it works with the subject matter.

Cheers,
David

I reckon the sax could be centred for its solo.
The vocals suit the song well but when the sax is in te mix there's a fair bit of freq overlap so one or the other needs some carving and the vox definitely could use a little level boost.
The lyrics are interesting but could easily be used/exploited by either side of the truth.
The last verse is VERY Cohen from 1st We Take Manhattan.
Cool song.

Great song! I think you have a very good voice. I think it should be a tad louder in spots as it is hard to hear in places.

I liked the lyrics, your vocal, chord progression and the groove. Great work.

Thanks Ray, I had left a bit of space in the instrumental section as I'd hoped to get a friend to put a bit of lead guitar in there. I have now boosted the vocal and the sax a bit and re-uploaded.

Hopefully the real truth will come out soon!

Thanks Mario, I have adjusted the vocal and made it louder. I do have a tendency to keep my voice down in the mix.

Thanks Marty, I can be a bit over critical of my voice as I'm sure we all are at times, but I console myself that it's only meant to be a guide vocal :-)

Usually, when I write tunes like this, the listener knows who I'm talking about..... So, who were you talking about?


I like the darkness and the rebelliousness in it. At one point there towards the end, I thought the Sax was a bit too "happy" sounding for the song. If you know what I mean. Of course, me being me, I would have crunched down a bit harder with the guitars.... but that's just me.

I liked it.

djames,

I liked this one as well (having just listened to “There’s Something Going On”. Your vocal is just fine for this song—actually fits the sounds and vibe quite well. Like the added heaviness musically in that bridge; and great sax work here. Good stuff!

All my best,

Deej

Hi Herb, specifically?....for some reason the image for me was an American politician allegedly involved with the Standard Hotel.

Yes I know what you mean about the Sax, I thought it was a bit "cheeky" - I can imagine the sax player giving a wink as he plays it :-) no doubt wearing a hat at a jaunty angle!

Thanks Deej, the vocal does settle down as it progresses, and listening to it again now, I think I was overly concerned as it's quite a put on voice. Yes the sax player is great - bit cheeky but he's a big hit with the ladies :-)

I love BIAB!

Thanks again for listening and commenting,
David
