Liner Notes: 

Number 2 - Chugging along here at breakneck speed

Lyrics: 

I saw a broken wing, drawing a fire
soaring clear over the wall
summoning fear of birds that sing to atomic bombs
How long? Greed.
Over the treetops?
Dreams that ever come clear

Jaywalking the streets of sunshine
one foot in in the vault
sunk into the sea a champion
float out like a ghost

shore glowing at midnight
cheat death in the gold light
seaweed and a poison effigy
burns brighter beyond
waves of fire
weatherman's burial pyre
blossoming soul

from heaven come all the angels
cold-blooded and mean
fall out of the sky a raindrop
blow up like a storm



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

Intriguing lyrics sung very well. The guitar work is awesome, some very nice licks in here. Altogether a brilliant song.

This is really nice. I don't really know how you came up with this lovely set of chords, but wow. And the lyrics over the top, really cool, it can't have been the easiest one to write a melody for either but you've done it without flaw. Really enjoyed this one.

Wow, wow, wow! Lovely guitar and an amazing vocal. I agree with Bill--this is one of the best songs I've heard around here this year. Keep it up!

Had to listen to this twice. Love that fingerpicking. Lovely and a little haunting, with superb and unexpected progressions. Great imagery in the lyrics!
