Robert reworked my song Emerald. This another arrangement of the song was also done with Janice and Ray. Was so glad to add this to the catalog of Spirit Level songs.

Billionaires in space- an emotional response written mostly around the time the first one blasted off... probably the same day I placed another Amazon order!

Hope you like it.


Last Resort

Lyrics:

The Last Resort

welcome aboard the VS Vanity
in Emerald Class all seats recline
we are honoured to fly you to the edge of wonder
who will come back from the sublime

weightless at the gates of space
the location of Paradise has moved
last lights of Kiribati scars on her body
this world leaves you weeping confused

helpless on the wheel
in rapture of orbit do you feel
meteor of man
in fire will you understand
at the last resort
the last resort

our special guest we have prepared
as we approach the Karman Line
a montage to airbrush your neglect, sir
momentarily we`ll be offline

simple gestures seal our fate
a bird flies from the flood with a leaf
indifferent gods we depend as you descend
see the millions waiting for relief

helpless on the wheel
in rapture of orbit do you feel
meteor of man
in fire will you understand
at the last resort
the last resort

Nice work, soothing to listen to. Touches of early Lou Reed fused with Neil Young. I liked the sitar too. Flew me to the edge of wonder...

Yes! I always like this song --from the idea to the execution and production. Robert, this is a very cool redo. Yeah, the sitar is an interesting addition, but Scott, your guitar is so perfect. Robert, you are a lyrics master. "the location of Paradise has moved" The way things are going billionaires in space will be in the cheap seats.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Hi Scott and Robbert

I loved that count-down intro/outro in the song.
Beside that I think the sitar was a great choice for this 'airy' song.
and Scott, your playing is wonderful as always

Robbert, your singing was very suitable for this spatial setting, the lyrics are brilliant, but I had to use Google translate quite a bit (of course).

I enjoyed the song very much!

Interesting rework, the lyrics suit the sublime mood. Clever images like "in rapture of orbit" and "VS Vanity". Robert's vocal is always pleasure to hear. Nice warm drumming and spacy lead guitar describe the journey very well. I know it would be a bit cliche, but some synthesizer space sounds wouldn't hurt smile

Thanks Marty for checking out the song. Was so glad that Robert finished the song and sent it to me. We had been talking about it awhile ago. So glad you liked it.

Great lyrics, loved the internal rhyme. Reminded me of Space Oddity, but so much better. I'd quote a line but I'd end up quoting the whole thing. Guitar fit well. Great job, gents!

Clever intro and outro.

Good and interesting write, although I have to confess I wasn't familiar with Kiribati.

Clever play on words with the title as well.

And, of course, excellent vocal and guitar work! laugh

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Many thanks to listeners and your comments.
Writing and singing lyrics to the melody lines of Scott`s fine instrumental was very enjoyable.
The sitar inclusion came from thinking that , along with Viridian, we might have 2 parts of a space trilogy...to be continued.

I agree with comments above, a little synth-space sounds would be icing on this cake, David Bowie style?
Very well done guys, a most enjoyable adventure and highly creative.

This got me thinking that next on the list for us to destroy/consume (after Earth) is the moon, then Mars.
Will we ever learn?

For me there’s no better place in the band than to have one leg in the harmony world and the other in the percussive. Thank you Paul Tutmarc and Leo Fender.
