The only thing worse than lawless reprieve
Are those who would celebrate sin in the streets
In defiance of spirit, the horde takes a knee
And gnaws at the hand of God's liberty

When truth is for sale, and all hope is gone
When hell's generation will not hear this song
If wrong is right, and right is still wrong
How does a common man still carry on
The heart of this old man has beat for too long...

When Jesus said, "They know not what they do"
He forgave the priests and the Romans too
Do you wonder today what He will say to you
Since that two thousand year debt is now due

I don't share your exact ideaologies, but I do have some overlap Tony.
At this moment, I havent listened to the song, just read the lyrics.

FWIW 2U....I think that your lyrics are very well written.

"When truth is for sale, and all hope is gone
When hell's generation will not hear this song
If wrong is right, and right is still wrong
How does a common man still carry on
The heart of this old man has beat for too long..."

To my view, that is really expressive and manicured at the same time.

Thanks Vic smile

For the record Tony...
I don't hate you at all. You and I share some core viewpoints.

And you consistently write talented stuff. Talented guy.

You know I always like your lyrics. Even though the feelings expressed often bounce off me they're powerfully enough expressed to make a dent LOL. This one's no exception. Really tightly written. The sound is great too. I love the drum heartbeat at the end.

The melody seems to be a bit of an afterthought and less inspired than the lyric and production.

Oh my goodness, Gavin! I'm so sorry... You must be dimpled like a golf ball by now. Just know that I do it with love in my heart smile

You're right about the raw recording... Sometimes I feel my singing shouldn't interfere with what I'm saying wink

Thanks Gav! (my favorite dimpled muse)

As always Enjoyed the listen. Personally i'm glad you walk the path of your choosing. The music and lyrics always stand apart from the crowd.

Like the liveliness of the percussion and you have a message wrapped in a working melody.

Your guitar work is also working as always

So this works for me.

And that Rivers of Destiny works nicely too

As our Aussie friends would say. "GOYM" Good On Ya Mate

Hey Japov It has been awhile but i like your tone and your rage on the page over the current state of this world we occupy.You cut deep and bleed truth and there is no bandaid to repair what you have exposed. Well done.

"rage on the page!" LOL... it's a gift smile

Thanks Matt
