I love the lyric and the concept of this song. It is timely and needed. "Down in the slums of Washington" is a great line. "Integrity checked out" as well. Very good lyric. If I was producing, I would lose the vibrato on the lead vocal. Although it's not much, but at times it feels "around the note" and note on it. Especially in the opening line. I thought this was very weak. Also felt the melody, nor the arrangement is up to the quality of the lyric. If it was my song and I chose to keep the vocal and progression together, I would experiment with speeding it up to 110 to 120 bpm and see what it sounds like. You might try putting it in a DAW and increasing tempo without changing the pitch to get a feel at a higher tempo. Right now, there is a strong lyric, but I don't think the production helps it. Greg, I hope you are doing well and hope this is constructive. Best, Roy

Great work (again) Greg. To explain some of the lower marks, which may not be valid to you, but honestly I have followed your writing for a long time now, and it is great. One problem I personally have on this one and some of your others, as great (and i MEAN THAT) as they are, your verse phrasing is very similar in many of the songs. Now they may say that about Jackson Browne and so many others that are in the hall of fame (LOL) but that is my opinion.
Now THIS SONG though has that minor "problem" to my ear, is wonderful musically and LYRICALLY too.
I love it.
All the best buddy, be proud.

Promises are made
In the light of day
When the sun goes down
Darkness finds its way

Where truth is bound
And locked in chains
Deceit runs free
And artifice reigns


In the heart of the capitol
A starving baby cries
The milk from the breast of politics
Has soured from inside

Deep in the waste of senators
There's a homeless bum
Sifting through the daily news
And delirium
Down in the slums
Of Washington

Integrity checked out
Took the last train south
Leaving only dust
And a trail of doubt

In the chronic drought
Of a country's pain
There's an orphan child
Praying for rain
