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


SHe did a great job Greg ! The negative for me is I feel like during the chorus it seemed like her vocal got covered up a bit by the instruments. During the verses it's prefect. I think he could have pulled the instruments back just a tad during the chorus, or put the vocal more up front. Great idea to have a girl sing it !

I loved this song Greg. It is very clearly produced to be guitar heavy (which I love) but I find it just a bit too much for the vocals, esp in the chorus.
I think if it was listened to again as someone who has never heard the lyrics before, it would benefit from the vocal being brought further forward - or perhaps it's my 72 year old ears! Either way, it's a cracking song, beautifully played and what a vocal - so professional.
Wishing you every success with it.

Really nice statement without showing what side you're on. Curious about the "artifice" use...I always thought of that as a compliment..."clever"....other than that...you used a lot of words no one ever uses....without sounding pretentious. Love the ease the singer phrases some tough lines....she pretty much carried those lyrics.
