I have really missed ccM, its been a while (for me anyway!)

It really is about continuing the conversation.
That sets ccM apart from your average remix site.

It started with Per’s great trumpet melody, and transformed into something completely different once Pitx picked up that old guitar of his.
Many thanks to Spin for the intro drums and BoHeart for the slide guitar themes.
Oh and I can’t forget the ever beautiful Sarah for dotting the “I”s for me.

Heres the words; a song about social decay but with a glimmer of hope.
Its also fighting it out on Songfight! for next weeks competition.

Today

I see a little boy down
and lost in the street
with his shirt all torn
no shoes on his feet
but hey !
(tell me)
thats OK

I saw old woman crying
whos given up trying
to live the dream
with the stars and the stripes
in the USA
(thats a shame)

But I
got this feeln that its here
its here to stay
Today
To close my eyes
and I’m dreamn of better way to live
with less to pay

I see an old man trying
his pocket full of change
at a payphone broke
got something to say
but wait !
can it change?

With the politicians lying
and the loan sharks plying
their streets from dreams to dream
The American way

But I
got this feeln that its here
its here to stay
Today
I close my eyes
and I’m dreamn of better way to live
than yesterday

With a big corporation who’s owning the corn?
and a carpark now
where there used to be lawn
“its progress”
so they say;
They got a pocket full of beans
for a million in-betweens
and a newspaper bed
to lay your head
well tell me,
is that obscene?

But I
got this feeln that its here
its here to stay
Today
To close our eyes
and we’re dreamn of better way to live
Today

We’ve got a monkey on our back
What we gonna do?
