Liner Notes: 

@Sunfire checked in with this lyrical examination of the mind. Still working with the MT Drums and I'm having a good time using some fills that I've heard from classic rock bands. I like it. There's a little Sheila E in here and a bit of soul, 90s pop and other jelly goodness. Mr. Sunfire has written something rather timely. Please enjoy the jelly! Smile

Lyrics: 

Never had a need 2 do any drugs
Cause my mind was enough to supply me with bugs
Reality can be harsh for thoughts 2 process
And when I was a teen my head was a mess

The mind is a drug
The mind is a drug

Don't snort
Don't drink
But I'm certainly not pure
Cause the mind is a drug
Oh this I am sure

I think my mind liked to play tricks on me
When illusions and deceptions were all I'd see
Emotions and perceptions were often quite far
While confusion reigned, things could seem bizarre

The mind is a drug
The mind is a drug

Don't snort
Don't drink
But I'm certainly not pure
Cause the mind is a drug
Oh this I am sure

The power of the brain
Can surely sustain
Good health and bad health alike
It can act like a pill
Make you well or ill
Even fool you like a friend who says psyche!

Don't snort
Don't drink
But I'm certainly not pure
Cause the mind is a drug
Oh this I am sure

Whatever you call this stylewise, I call it beautiful and amazing and very listen-worthy indeed!

Oh, wow, those lyrics are awesome! Love your vibrato I noticed in verse 1. The stereo effect illustrates the “mind is a drug” message. And the abrupt ending - perfect for the song.

Making some nice jam at the factory, again! . Love this style with a deep message in the lyrics and that guitar riff. Great collab

I believe I remember these lyrics from the skirmish. They are so good. Love the funky music. Has a bit of a psychedelic feel - a perfect fit. Terrific vocals!! Nice collab Smile

That guitar riff certainly does the trick for me. This is constantly moving from mood to mood and vibe to vibe and each one fits in perfectly (and I'm still trying to figure out how you made a chiptune *funky*. Mad skillz.)

I like when you two collaborate. Nothing like Sun-Jelly…Love the guitars licks. Great vocal delivery as usual fire lyrics!
