Liner Notes: 

I used the final superskirmish song prompt to write lyrics for a improvisation the Catalytic Perverters did on Tuesday. Superskirmish K was hosted by @tootoobee and the prompt was 'use two different NUMBERS in a line of your song (like e.g. 1 in a million, 1+1, 3 out of four, 5 to 12, 7/11, ...).' I ended up with two such lines in the song; 83/18 and 40/45.


Some days, when I wake up
I'm glad to find I'm still alive
through the aching and the waiting
I can make it to another night

I'm not as young as I used to be
50-something, how can that be?
I feel like I'm 83
but in my head, I've barely turned 18

Some days, when I wake up
I'm glad to find I'm still alive
I remember thinking, "Life begins at 40"
but it was over by 45

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

Great classic sound. Relatable lyrics and nice idea for the skirmish.
Your vocals are cool, too - you've got that not-quite-gravelly quality which fits the style perfectly. Diggin that bass!
Successful collab

If you can still rock like this, you don't need to feel old. A fun listen and good job on the skirmish prompt. I feel younger already! Wink

So cool! I really enjoyed the Bass and I don't say that very often (except to my Uncle who plays Bass - lol!) Loved the rock vibe, vocals, and lyrics. Excellent!
