Started downloading State Shirt’s very nice stems when I stumbled across the piano piece for “Conway Station Road”. The rest of the song wrote itself in less than 20 minutes, with the recording just as quick. Sometimes it just feels right!?#@$
All during a massive thunderstorm.
A few small pops in the mix represent 1 million volts through my headphones.
After watching 20 of our finest on TV earlier tonight (the G20 forum) I just had to say something.
Mother nature did the backup vocals I guess.
Anyway if you can’t hear me over the thunder claps, here are the words;

I can hear your heartbeat
beating strong four billion years
and why can’t other people see?
we need it back before it leaves us here.

Well somebody told me
that life she’ll find a way to learn
and fix greed and folly
while the ices melt
the river burns

‘Cause I’ve seen them all
(grey starched new suits)
lining up before their god
And I know the score
(that keeps the wheels a turning)
paper burning just to get some more

But we know its wrong
(fast cars new shoes)
lining up before our god
Have you heard our song?
(half price, buy it now)
it won’t be here too long.

Well I’m sorry mother
couldn’t help it brother
can I drink this water cause its mine?
And I’m sorry daughter
cause I think we ought to
better do it while we have the time.
(better do it while we have the time)

Cause I’ve seen them all
(grey starched new suits)
lining up before their god
And we know the score
(that keeps the wheels a turning)
paper burning just to get some more

Can you tell me why?
Can you tell me why?
(Can you tell me why?)
(Can you tell me why?)

PS I’ve now uploaded the pell (wet & dry) if anyone can see something else.
