Liner Notes: 

We did a live skirmish at fawmstock. Lori Citro had us all write out a skirmish them then she chose one at random. Turns out it was mine: Lost Positives: ie: kempt, sheveled, combobulated, couth. I ended up only using the term lost positives and wrote a politicalish folkie rant.

I did get video of all the songs I wrote at FAWMstock but I probably won't post demos until I get home.

Oh-- and I used power chords on a guitlele.

Lyrics: 

Lost Positives
(c) Sean McGaughey July 28, 2018 Fawmstock #2

C5 B5
What did he say this time? Today? Again?
F5 `` C5
Who did he offend today?
C5 B5
Whose sandcastle did he kick away?
F5 `` C5
What will the evening news say?
D5 E5
We are drowning on the tide.
D5 C5
Bad news threatens to sweep us away
D5 C5
We must reclaim what we have lost
D5 G5
Where are the positives that brighten our way.

Chorus (Cowboy Chords)
C
We need some Good News
Dm
of how people get along.
G
Helping one another,
C
Joining in Song.
C
We have lost sight
Dm
of truth that we seek
G
Reach out to the poorm the lonely, the weak.

Power chords riff again

C5 B5
It's not about him
F5 `` C5
It's not about us and them?
C5 B5
It's not about losers and winners
F5 `` C5
We've seen how that story ends.
D5 E5
We must push beyond our fear
D5 C5
To see strangers as our Brothers
D5 C5
Only then can we see clear
D5 G5
There's only us, there are no others.



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
