Song has an easy feel to it, with an expressive vocal.

    - Bob Birthisel

Definitely stands out. Did not sound like a typical song, very original, especially the sound of the instrumentation

    - Randall Mark
Lyrics

There was a cloud that followed me
It dogged my steps, it ran the show
A foggy, misty, empty sea
All kinda dreary, don't ya know
Had me on my way to ruin
Had me barkin' at the moon
Thought I was goin' Looney Toons

It didn't matter how I tried
Couldn't seem to read my lines
Was always driftin' with the tide
Not one to heed the warnin' signs
It was like I was caught in a typhoon
My life was blowin' past high noon
And I was truly Looney Toons

Should have asked to be committed
Would have saved some people grief
Life's not a suit that's simply fitted
Styles keep changin'
And time's a thief
That's for sure

Now, there's a muse that visits me
It whispers music, sweet and clear
In a language known to be
What this soul has longed to hear
No more preachin' doom and gloom
No more thoughts of padded rooms
No more goin'
Looney Toons
