I'm just a song puppet
a slave to six strings
my muse is my Master
forcing my soul to take wings

Two hundred gigs a year
I ain't getting no loving
I miss my girl back home, so dear
but my muse just keeps shoving....

Day and night
all night long
I hear the echoes
of every song I've ever played
It's lonely out there on that road
It's not easy
And though I make
a lot of cash you know
nothing out there will appease me
nothing can please me!

Cause I'm a song puppet
I'm trapped here on this stage
Can somebody please
come and turn the page
and set me free.

Maybe my muse is my Devil
and this is my Hell!!
there's just no way to tell....

Then I hear that crowd roar
begging me for more
to entertain them
over and over again
there is no end.....

I'm a song puppet
a slave to my strings
my muse is my Master
he controls everything
my muse is my master
forcing my soul to take wings
take wings...
I'm a song puppet.......................

Well that's a good question. it is a collaboration between myself and Muhammed. It could use a tighter mix, which would require splicing parts of the original instrumental with the vocals and current music, that match some of the clip breaks that occurred. which is a delicate surgery. I have the Mp3 of the original instrumental available...which can be sent anywhere online. Or perhaps another version of the music using non electronic music, and implementing Gutiar, keyboard, drums all of which I don't have. But I would lose the strange sounds that end the song so nicely since they are elelctronically generated by Muhammed in Islambad, Pakistan. It is a unique concept in its presentation of a songwriters emotional state, and the melody bleeds out his feelings so well with the plainitive vocal wails. But i am always up for suggestions. Thanks for the offer. I am headed out of town for a gig in New York till Saturday, and if you write back I will catch it today or on Saturday. I don't want you thinking I am ignoring you for the next two days..LOL~~Matt

Muhammed is open to any interpertations of his muisic....and he's in Pakistan. there are a lot of three way collaborations apart from the trysts in bedrooms and they all enjoy a large slice of the pie. LOL

Travis thanks so much for your appreciation of my writing skills and your continuation of listening. That's the highest praise any one could ever want. And you are quite the phenomenal songcrafter as well. So i say ditto to you on all of the above. ~~Matt
