Story Behind The Song

my bestie used to live in San Franisco and the N. Judah rail line would roar by his home every fifteen minutes - wonder where everyone is going and what are they striving for? The rest is an almost slipstream of imagery and a bit of naval contemplation - what's it all mean... that's up to you.

Lyrics

The Metro line runs everywhere and nowhere just outside my door

so catch a ride if you're so inclined, there's so much here to explore

wheels click on down the track, metronome to curious rhythm
destination right ahead: next stop oblivion

kismet, random chance, ennui synchronized
life flies past my window, I'm looking out through unseeing eyes

I rolled the dice, roll away the stone
no sense of Rapture, just brittle bones
ascension's aborted, I'm coming home
next stop oblivion

I'm touched by madness you say
or is it a moment's clarity
either way - it's just a point of view
perception without perspective
so we hold out for happy endings
we're past the point of no return
next stop oblivion

Overall, good song. Great job!!...............................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................Keep up the great work!!

I like the track, reminds me of Jethro Tull a bit. I would love to hear it on a better recording and mix. Thanks

Great kick off to the song I like the train effects, and the lead

Wow, I wasn't expecting this. Great vibe to the song. Love the guitar, but the sax really makes it, particularly the solo. Strong lyrics. Catchy. I love the 'Next Stop Oblivion' theme. Reminiscent of the band Psychedelic Furs.

Love the intro! Wow on the horns! The first impression I got from this song was: Get up and dance. When I read the lyrics, I realize it's more than that. The song is about the metro rail, but that's a springboard for the metaphor of "where are we going?" The hook is extremely effective: Next Stop, Oblivion. The ending is stellar. Well thought out. You are quite the lyricist!

Great opening, very "Bowie" sounding lead singer. Lyrics are solid, great tempo and the saxophone solos. I like how the song is bookended by the train, it fits (what I assume the title to be). Overall a pretty solid track, really not much work needed.

I liked the train effect at the top. I can completely feel your passion for music and your dedication to the details of your music. I thought the hook was good, very memorable which if you can write like this, in my mind you have a gift. The change, probably the pre-chorus at 1:30 was beautiful. Blend of the mix is generally good aside from the low end is missing. Overall I like the song a lot, has a Ramones vibe to it, sass brass and class.

The opening riff reminded me very much of Locomotive Breath be JethrobTull, one of my favorite bands. Indeed the rest of the song did also. Even the vocals are Ian Anderson-esq, which I dig! Nice use of sax and some unusual but unique instrumentation, worked well. I can almost hear a flute instead of the sax, but that's my Jethro Tull craving acting up again!

A solid middle-of-the-road rock song.

Strange at first I was thinking the Doors but then halfway into it got me thinking 80's New Wave. Very interesting sound. Should have some value in some market.

good saxnice rock n roll number,
