Carrying on in the line of my “Choose” and “Do What You Need” tracks. Just a song idea developed slowly over time. I think the sound of this is improved compared to past work because I got a hardware compressor for my birthday, and it really helps me get a strong signal without clipping. As one might guess from the first verse, thisn’s for my boys.

I’ve also included the bed I sequenced to sing over and a rough mix. Feel free to use the bed (or loops from it) or not.

Thanks for listening….. .. .

Nebulous Advice
lyrics copyright Ran Dumb Dots….. .. .

You little boys asleep in your bedroom…
You do not know what’s to come.
You only listen for the briefest moments.
It’s hard for me to find the right words.

Nothing you do in this world
should be for R.J. Reynolds
or pretty girls you don’t know
Those kinda people don’t care how your life unfurls…….no…

I think it started with my own father…
On those tough topics he would say,
“You know about that stuff, right? Good.”
Occasionally I would get some nebulous advice….
Made my own mistakes before I understood.


I beat myself up
And I tear myself down
And I say, “It’s no good. It’s no good. It’s no good.”
And I throw myself around.
And then I remember….

[Similar to chorus]
Everything you do in this world
had better be alright with you
on the inside (repeat entire line twice)
Don’t be tellin’ yourself lies
because it’s you you will despise (repeat entire line twice]

And it’s still true…
