the end of the war

I wrote this about two years back
I'm quite 'appy with the overall result, still there are plenty of unexplored avenues.

Any critique is very welcome.

n the lyrics:



The End Of The War


there are people in the street
one single voice can be heard
all eyes are wide but they don't see
revolution does not mean
the end of the war
the end of the war

kings of the world 'round these parts
grab all the money and run
soon thereafter times get hard
they're on to us with loan-sharks
take all the money and run,
they don't stand for what they've done

in another world, th`smell of your hair,
th' touch of your skin is neither here nor there
s' where am I to begin?, for whom am I to care?

it came to me in a dream
and I believe ev'ry word
no common ground in between
and only the dead have seen
the end of the war
the end of the war

revolution means nothing
and only the dead have seen
the end of the war
the end of the war
the. . . . .  end. . . of. . . . the. .  war.

Your songs are still an unmistakable social portrait ...
I would like the piano to be heard louder, perhaps it is to apply an equalization that makes it stand out more among the other instruments ... And to the string I would put more reverb to put it on a more distant plane ...
the end of the war ... How beautiful it sounds!  @Rightly
I did not know that to live I had to die so many times

Glad you like the song Mora and thanks for the suggestions.
I'll keep them in mind for future productions.

yes, a social comment addressing the widespread and fallacious belief that restarting a disappointing system will surely lead to a better result.
lol. It sometimes seems to me that the young have the energy to make changes but make the same mistakes due to their lack of experience.
I consider myself a realist.

This is a different live recording of the same song
bass, accordian, drums and I do the acoustic guitar and sing.
(I think I prefer the cubase version)
