Liner Notes: 

Just woke up, still very early, decided to do lyrics for the missed overnight skirmish prompts

Lyrics: 

Slowdown

Now I need to slow down,
yeah slowdown
Take the foot right off the gas
Nows the time for me to slowdown

Always had had my foot on the floor
No matter what i had in store
Pushed aside all that opposes

Carried on fast and loose
Sometimes seemed like i’d cooked my goose
Never ever stopped to smell the roses

But now I need to slow down,
yeah slowdown
Take the foot right off the gas
Nows the time for me to slowdown

Treated it all like a medieval tourney
Just a destination not the journey
Never ever took my blinkers off

Went along with the lows and highs
Kept my eyes firmly on the prize
But now i seem to have hit a trough

But now I need to slow down,
yeah slowdown
Take the foot right off the gas
Nows the time for me to slowdown

Now i see it all was lies
There really isn’t any prize
Probably never coming back this way

Don’t go down the path of sorrow
Don’t try over think tomorrow
Then you’ll have found a better way

So
Don’t go down the path of sorrow
Don’t try over think tomorrow
Then you’ll have found a better way



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

Nice, reflective set of lyrics. They are really pretty and make you think. Nice skirmish!

Those lyrics are really well thought through: going to fast, the problem of our modern world. I think it's nice that you used a three-lines and four-line scheme that are turns. Gives it a feeling of restlessness! Well done!

Good message, nice rhymes. I especially like the line 'Just a destination, not the journey'
