The end is a beginning - song about time

The music for this I put together back in february before the darned virus descended upon us. This week I opened the project again, and filled in the lyrics after randomly jotting down the line about the gypsies. i put in a few guitar parts and backing vocals, may be too much?


The end is a beginning

Superheated by the sun
you ventured out on the street.
Got suckered into
another tourist trap,
hell yeah!

I heard you stated taking pills
and went on the road with the gypsies.
I understand life
became a bit too predictable.
hey hey.

The end is a beginning

slide into the C-suite
with your corporate executive connections:
Can you smell the forest
after the rain?
Oh please.

On a day like this,
We cal always imagine
being on a road,
to the Next Unknown.
Who needs Jet Travel
When you got feet?

Love how that free form intro resolves into a groove. Very cool tune @oorlab .

Hola @oorlab

I like the song and its concept and style, however there are instrumental parts that I think bother the voice ... Good lyrics, simple and effective.

Gracias @Mora Amaro La Loba  - that is an interesting observation. I will listen agin to hear if I could fix it in the mix, and use a new version for a videoclip I am thinking about.

Cheers @Leonard Scaper  - resolving in a groove - nice way to put it.
Cheers @Mo   - that line about the forest after the rain was a last minute addition.

I enjoy the offbeat quirky groove of this @oorlab . Liking the way you do your vocal processing and the looseness of the harmonies.
Not sure about that looong ending (or maybe its just the pause that comes at around 3:00- made me think you were closing out there).

Not to much at all @oorlab the various interlocking parts all give each other space and keep the strut in the bass and percussion cooking along.

Fun piece... I enjoyed it  :yes: :yes: :yes:
