PRETZEL LOGIK

Song Description

Wrote this one a while back but wasn't sure of the right approach. In light of the Me-Too movement (with themes including casting-couch power struggles) I felt like its time had come. The acoustic version had a driving rhythm of its own which inspired a Lenny Kravitz/David Bowie/Finger Eleven vibe with an Isaac Hayes changeup thrown into the bridge. I wanted to do a rap on top of this as I felt it would be unexpected and fresh. Executed flawlessly by Chris Banks and - voila!

Lyrics

There's a boy whose head is buried in the sand
He's got a girl who's loved him from the start
And she don't see what a user he can be
But it will tear their world apart

There's a girl whose head is somewhere in the clouds
Another casting couch another lie
In walks the suit and his eyes are resolute
And another dream is gonna die

These are the games people play while their lives slip away
It's the pretzel logic of the human mind
An eye for an eye only makes the whole world blind
The pretzel logic of the human mind

There's a ghost on the street he ain't never had enough to eat
He's got a cardboard sign and he's doing time
When you look him in the face all you see is his disgrace
Thinking trash like that ought to be a crime

These are the games people play while their lives slip away
It's the pretzel logic of the human mind
An eye for an eye only makes the whole world blind
The pretzel logic of the human mind

BRIDGE
Feel like you're dying in the streets of the cold cold city
What you thinking fool man fuck your self-pity
Ain't no kinda way you're gonna make a start
Trying to find love in a stranger's heart - in a stranger's heart?

You can shoot 'em in the back or if you think you've got the knack
You can try cyanide in a drink of wine
An eye for an eye gonna make the whole world blind
But it's the pretzel logic of the human mind

These are the games people play while their lives slip away
It's the pretzel logic of the human mind
An eye for an eye only makes the whole world blind
The pretzel logic of the human mind

aaah aaah aaah aah
aaah aaah aaah aah

An eye for an eye only makes the whole world blind
The pretzel logic of the human mind

Another pro sounding track - recording is radio ready!

Really good piece with very good and interesting arrangement and a really good message. Top notch instrumentation from start to finish.
