Here we go; the year`s last song challenge has an entry!
Written and shelved  as being a little strange by Robertkc, dusted off and repaired with vocals by @Leonard Scaper , new laces and polish applied by mixmaster @Dutchbeat , we present:

https://soundcloud.com/dutchbeat-1/mending-gods-shoe-from-robert-and-leonard-2 



   Mending God`s Shoe

its important to remember
please face the jury try to recall
who erased the code the ultimate download
scratched on the wall

recovered from the scene
pages of mammon the unloaded gun
yet you say he promised no revenge
in the beauty to come

evasion evasion
on the night in question
you disavowed this fool
touching broken faces in low places
mending God`s shoe
ooohoooh
mending God`s shoe

in the absence of a body
are we to believe a mistrial conclude
the disgraced witness in outlandish dress
from zona lumierre rouge

evasion evasion
on the night in question
you disavowed this fool
touching broken faces in low places
mending God`s shoe
ooohoooh
mending God`s shoe

bandages undone speaking in tongues
the light saw you
ooohoooh
the light saw you
ooohooh
mending Gods shoe

@Mora Amaro La Loba .......  :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)

Actually that voice that is doubling mine most times....as well as taking some of the lead parts, is none other than @robertkc  . When I first heard the demo from Robert, with him singing of course, I was almost hesitant to do it because he really nailed the song himself.

I think this is one of the coolest songs I have heard, lyrically. I mean......mending God's shoe?? Any takers on an analysis of that,? Because if Robert really does know where that came from....he's not saying.   ;) ;) ;) ;) ;)

Oh! :) listening to kitchen collabs is so very interesting . It's really cool to get to listen closely and identify the mark of the different collaborators and listening to what their fusion / combined creativity sounds like :) I enjoyed listening to your song :) it has some very interesting elements that work very well in unison. Great work! :)

@Leonard Scaper @Dutchbeat @robertkc I gave the comment below on SoundCloud, as it nicely tells you what i think:

I heard Lady Gaga sing with Metallica, and to be honest, that wasn't bad at all. It sounded a bit peculiar though, as she usually drinks quite different cups of tea. Hearing Lenny's voice with this electronic piece is quite like it. Strange, not bad at all, and it makes me smile :)

Just wondering, was it the left or the right shoe? It makes quite a difference in understanding the lyric.

Hey @Rachel_D ....aren't these collabs cool!!??? This one is so unique......three distinctly different styles. I'm glad you liked it.

I can't wait to hear from others!!!

@Pleudoniem I had to go watch that Gaga video. I see exactly what you mean.

Pondering now the question of...which shoe.

What I think about this collab challenge is, that this is very different  from those you done earlier
Its not about the challenge between the different teams, no,  its the challenge for single everyone, because everybody is questioned to leave their used comfort zone behind and cross smaller or bigger  borders.
That is a great thing, because doesn't matter how long or short you are in the songwriter hobby, it means a chance to grow.

* edit
This lyrics are written very encrypted and leave large space for interpretation for some good reasons i guess  :)

Congrats for this highly interesting result!   :ok: :ok: :ok:




Superbly done @Dutchbeat  @robertkc @Leonard Scaper  - liking the cinematic lyrics.

@Mo .....I'm glad the song got you pondering things. I'm hoping that @robertkc 's lyrics spark even more deep thought. Hoping more folks will share where these seriously cool lyrics take them.

@oorlab ..........glad you like it. I have to say that when I first started singing this one in the studio the song just slipped right into my psyche. That line that you quoted was heavily responsible for that.

Yeah....a scifi movie indeed!!!

Well i heard it again an yeah @oorlab  totally nailed it with the science fiction, thats really good image this song could be. The vocals fits very well to the nicley builded up mix of @Dutchbeat that remains me at a 'happy end scene'  of it. iIs sounds warm and relieved. You should do it more often @Leonard Scaper
Just then the lyrics ,  as i got it as 'questioning the god thing' tasted a  bit salty in the sweet.

..I'm glad the song got you pondering things.
Indeed  the lyrics got me pondering  ;D 
But at least i wasn't sure if @robertkc  is  ok with interpretations he didn't mentioned in the opening  ..... ::)

Maybe there should be a prize for the best interpretation of the lyrics @Mo  :pompom:
My intro said "Suggestions for tweaks are welcome...interpretations of the meaning  :doublebonk: :doublebonk: "up to you" :dance:"
I`m tickled listeners are imagining scenarios. Though I told @Leonard Scaper  & @Dutchbeat  I`d no idea what the lyrics meant...I really do ;D
and still not telling, to encourage you to script something completely different.
Which you have and I almost understand your version too!

Robert

I was not fooled @robertkc !!! I knew those lyrics came from someplace within.  ;) ;) ;) ;) ;)

@Leonard Scaper - Yes! - they're almost magical .... I can't wait to share ours !!!!!


whoa @Leonard Scaper  , @robertkc  , @Dutchbeat   ..... I'm at a loss for words. It's hard to comment on this. It is very unusual ... but in a good way I'd say.   :)
