Liner Notes: 

Cicpisces: Part of the random collab.
Subject was travel.

AndyGetch: Keeping with the traveling theme in Cicpisces lyrics I was aiming for a sort of wandering old Kinks London song feel with the music starting and ending at a C chord. So I used a partial cycle of fifths starting at different places in each verse. Chorus in G ending on C. Bridge modulating down a half step each line from C7 to A7.

Lyrics: 

Travelling Across the City

From my view from the Greenwich meridian line
I can see the Canary Wharf tower
I will plot my journey
To make the trip in less than an hour
Cause to travel is my dream
Over many lands and many streams

Chorus
I use the transport around me
To travel across the city
Cause I’m someone who likes the wheels
And the highs and the thrills
When I travel across the city

Start by foot and walk down the steep downward slope
I step on an everyday red bus
Straight to the old station
I get the light rail without a fuss
Pass the old docks on the way
How many homes stand there today

Chorus
I use the transport around me
To travel across the city
Cause I’m someone who likes the wheels
And the highs and the thrills
When I travel across the city

Or I can remain on the bus to the tube
I can get the jubilee line there
Two stops to the old Wharf
I could even leave that place by air
Along the smart cable car
Cause over the river ain’t far

Chorus
I use the transport around me
To travel across the city
Cause I’m someone who likes the wheels
And the highs and the thrills
When I travel across the city

Bridge
Wouldn’t it be good to arrive by boat
Wouldn’t it be good to arrive in style
Wouldn’t it be good to try and be green
Wouldn’t it be good to use electric lights

Chorus
I use the transport around me
To travel across the city
Cause I’m someone who likes the wheels
And the highs and the thrills
When I travel across the city

I like the lyrics being the decision making process of how to travel in London. And the music just sounds like someone talking to himself as he makes that decision. Fits together so well.
