I've just messaged a guy on SoundCloud called Clive Hawkins who makes instrumental / ambient tracks, and one of his latest  tracks is called "After The Bomb"

Clive's Track

https://soundcloud.com/clive-hawkins/after-the-bomb

As is often with my lyrics I had a sudden blast for the ether and the words below poured out. I've contacted Clive to see if might be up for a collaboration.
It's very different from my usual output.

After The Bomb - Potential Lyrics
Clive Hawkins Track (P Goodrich 22/01/2018)


One World, One Tribe
One Fate, One Life
Two Sides, Too Late
Just What Have We Done

Dead Streets, Dead Lives
Dead Seas, Dark Skies
We've Gone, Too Far
Ohhhh We've Lost It All

(C)
And The People Cried As One
With The Firing Of The Gun
Too Late For Second Thoughts
Too Late For All Of Us

No Race, No Faith,
No News, No Lies
Past Ways, Past Lives
They're Over and Done

Dark Days, Dark Times
Dark Deeds, Dark Minds
No Hope, All Gone
We've Nowhere To Run

C)
And The People Cried As One
With The Firing Of The Gun
Too Late For Second Thoughts
Too Late For All Of Us

(quiet section)

No Rest, No Sleep
No Love, Just Hate
Dull Hearts, Dead Minds
The Future Itís Gone

One World, One Tribe
One Fate, One Life
Two Sides, Too Late
Just What Have We Done

(C)
And The People Cried As One
With The Firing Of The Gun
Too Late For Second Thoughts
Too Late For All Of Us

(Ad Lib)
Final Whispered After The Bomb

You definitely started those lyrics dark and stayed dark right to the end, MrB. Listening to Clive's song now, however, I am hearing glimmers of hope...say right around 3:00 and then again at 5:00.

Yep Lenny - I was in a sombre mood as it flooded out last night.

I actually quite like these moody lyrics used against Clive's music, in a way the message is 'there is no hope', 'no bright horizon', we're basically $%£%£ed. 

Anyway, you might get to hear something because he got back to me late last night and sounded intrigued I think to see what I can come up with.
I'm not sure people do vocal pitches to him and it strikes me that he normally doesn't indulge too much in colab work unless they are unfinished ideas of his.

I'm quite excited by this as it's a bit of a departure for me doing a song like this, although I did write a song called "Everything in the Garden is Lovely",
many years ago and never recorded , which was a comment on this sort of thing.

Cheers folks, yes Clive has sent me his track. I'm starting recording vocals as we speak and I think it's going to be an interesting project.

I'm pleased to report this is starting to turn into something quite special for me. I think I've poured quite a bit of myself into it vocally and it's starting to show.

I'm playing about with different vocal techniques, harmonies, echo, reverb etc. and I now have 'Strawberry' aka 'Linda Strawberry Coloma' on this track.

Also there is a chance my wife might appear as the Alto part of a harmony stack at one point.

Yep, I'm quite excited by this project and the space in Clive's original track makes it very moody.

Really digging these lyrics. Even if the lyrics are aimed at a post apocalyptic theme, I can honestly interpret this different ways, which is what I love about these types of lyrics. Now ive gotta go listen to this song.
