Rap Rock?

https://www.soundclick.com/music/songInfo.cfm?songID=14484647

Don't you want to live it, don't you want to love it, don't you want to make the scene
Don't you want to make it, don't you want to break it, don't you have a fantasy
You know your heart is heavy when you're walking the streets looking for a thrill
And all the people you meet they got those hungry eyes, you know it gives you a chill
But it's up to you where you get your kicks, living in the sticks or jamming in the city
I get my thrill from a model way of life where the tough survive but the living is easy
And the more I have the more I want, oh I can't sit still
Never content such a restless life, no I can't sit still
I'm getting nowhere fast

Don't you want to have it, don't you want to taste it, don't you want to have a ball
Don't you want to feel it, don't you want to be it, don't you want to have it all
You know you've wasted your time when you look at your watch and can't remember the day
When what you wanted so much just wasn't enough, well what do you say
From bubblegum to caviar', from bluejeans to pomp and circumstance
What's it all mean when it feels like I'm just getting nowhere fast
From training wheels to sports cars, from sunny days to hot nights on the town
Having fun is just passing time when you know that it can't last
But the more I have the more I want, oh I can't sit still
Never content such a restless life, no I can't sit still
I'm getting nowhere fast

JAPOV,

That's some incredible guitar work . . actually, an incredible composition. From a production standpoint, I might like that vocal to sit a bit more forward . . . but, boy, those guitars are HOT, HOT, HOT. Cool work!

Best regards,

Deej

I agree with everything Deej just said, including bringing the vocals up just a little. Great stuff, Tony! One of my faves of yours.

This one suits your timbre Tony.
Your vocal tone laces into the active guitar work real well.
My favorite of yours.

Causes me to recall Walk This Way.

High energy..................It would be fun to jam with you...............................Alabama is pretty far.
I really like the lyric.... it's pretty good. To me, so much of our day.... our week .......our month and year just endeavors to get us "Nowhere Fast". So much emphasis in the moment to get that one step ahead of tomorrow.

Speaking of Doctors... The VA is going to put me under and take a biopsy of my right tonsil Wednesday... They already took a biopsy of the lymph node in my neck. Started having trouble the SECOND time I popped positive for COVID! I just hope it improves my voice LOL smile

Hey, I've got a 4/10 Blues DeVille that could sure use some TLC... Scratchy pots and such.

Good to see you back Mac!

First of all--definitely rock. Did you do the mixing yourself? It's awesome, love the guitar and drums. I can see you've been at this awhile--great job. The mix sounds like studio quality, great job all the way around
