Andy---- Last minute skirmish write and record Slack chat collaboration to the prompt "Statement". Words by @mike skliar.

Mike- I was in the slackchat with Andy and saw there was another skirmish, offered to write a quick lyric if he wanted to do the rest, and this is the result- Andy did a fine and fun job setting this lyric to music and singing and playing...

Everyone Makes A Statement
Words by Mike Skliar , music and performance by Andy Getch

Verse 1
Everyone makes a statement they leave us all a clue
They choose what they believe in, decide what could be true
Find a bunch of signposts and connect them all with glue
Everyone makes a statement, they leave us all a clue

Verse 2
Everyone makes a statement, with something that they wear
Leather, fur, or denim, or opting to go bare
And that’s not even mentioning the things we do with hair
Everyone makes a statement, with something that they wear

Bridge
Everyone makes a statement with the things that they buy
Making those connections, getting their supply
Do you buy things from far away or just close by
Everyone makes a statement with the things that they buy

Verse 3
Everyone makes a statement with the words that they speak
The ways that they give praise, the ways that they critique
The way that they speak plainly, or keep it all oblique
Everyone makes a statement with the words that they speak

Repeat verse 1



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

This is a great lyric! and the performance does make me think of some 40's/50's folk tunes like @coolparadiso said some pre dylan stuff. Gives it a fun lighthearted feeling I'm really enjoying

Yea! A skirmish collab! Great match of music and lyrics! Well done! So many ways to make statements and a song like this is one of the best ways!

First of all, if you collaborated on a skirmish, I'm really impressed! Really enjoyable to hear the backed-off plucking during the "spoken" part.

Anyway I think coolparadiso's comment is totally winning, yeah, use whatever advantage you can, it's 50/90!

Ha...a fun, amusing lyric with a deeper message as well. It's got great rhythm to it. And that's a good melody and light-hearted vocal that lift the words off the page. Good collab!
