Hey, again:

So here's another something recent . . . though a bit darker thematically than most of what I write and do. Thank in advance for the listen.

Stay safe and well,

Deej

Wow, Deej, that is dark! It's also great. You tackle the subject avoiding all the pitfalls - melodrama, preaching, shock for shock's sake. It's very moving and powerful. Great arrangement and performance, as usual. Great job.

I was a bit confused at first because I didn't notice the apostrophe in Angel's. Made a lot more sense when I did.

Nice to see you here again smile

A tragic ode to the fallen among us, the destitude who will do anythung to escape the grip of poverty, drugs, alcohol and perverted cash cows. They all tell themselves it's only for a while but it becomes a lifestyle until their life is taken by some psychopath. love the music and your expressiveness over their fates.

Gavin, JAPOV, MFB, and John:

Thanks you all for stopping in and giving this one a spin. Glad you all seemed to enjoy the listen. Thanks much!

Deej,

Loved it. Great Rock tune. I really liked the bass line on this song--it drove the song IMO unlike just adding a bottom. The guitar solo fits perfectly and love how it starts out lower on the fret board. (I wouldn't mind hearing an oncore of that lead guitar back in the mix with a few riffs in your outro). Great concept lyrically, and as always you perform very well.

Deej,

Loved this one! I thought the production was great and the lyrics were as well. I like that it wasn't judging, it was matter-of-fact, but not melodramatic either. Good job! I enjoyed it! smile
