Liner Notes: 

This one is a departure from the rest of my stuff. Kinda going for a 60s northern soul vibe on this jawn.

Lyrics: 

I'm just a mortal with a soul on fire
got a skeleton made of barbed wire yeah yeah
i take my vitamins and eat my greens
I wreak havok like dancing machine

I got some money but nothin to buy
the smell of flowers is natural high ah yeah yeah
heard a whistle up over the trees
the end is comin like a beautiful dream

we're cheatin death as we fly to the sun
our eyes are glowing like a big shotgun
we cross the river, we're doin it fast
break the chains of our bodies at last

I'm just immortal with golden wings
I brought to heaven my material things yeah yeah
new stereo, titanium watch
flat screen and bottle of scotch

my soul's spinnin like tropical storm
I know that someday I will reborn yeah yeah
I'll lose my memory, brand new brain
for now I'm ridin on the astral plane

we're cheatin death as we fly to the sun
long gone and we have been stunned
we cross the ocean, we're doin it fast
break the chains of our bodies at last

Groovy man. That really flies, the hook - mortal with a soul on fire - is brilliant. Really up beat , I could see some swinging 60’s dancing to this. Really enjoyed listening to this.

Ooh, cool. Your vocals sound SO good here. Lyrics are also really strong, with fantastic imagery as per usual. Had me dancing in my seat. Love this one!

Some surreal words to accompany this slice of classic soul. The beat is infectious, and I enjoy the guitar riffage.
