Song Description

Pop/Rock in 3/4 or is it 6/8 time? The song uses metaphor to explore tension between two individuals.

Story Behind the Song

A 'back to basics' song for me in that it's a standard pop/rock song. And even more of a surprise my rusty voice has returned from exile.

The song as a fantastic feel and the instruments are totally together. Really sets a nice tone and there are enough dynamics to keep it interesting. The vocal is on pitch as well. Excellent song - keep cranking out this kind of well-written material!

    - Bob Birthisel

Good work here. Very professional recording and execution on all levels. Good song structure and instrumentation is performed flawlessly. Great work!

    - Marcel
Lyrics

We drift again
Sailing through days, like we don't know the way
Eclipsed again
Like the sun going down on the far side of town

You make a face at me
I'm last in the race I'm bound to be
But I make no predictions of prophesies
As you make it up, (you do)

We drift again
Lost in the haze, like we don't know the way
Eclipsed again
By the sun going down on the lost and the found
You raise the mainsail
While I drop the anchor and take the blame
And I find myself out on a limb again
While you make it up as you go along

We sit in the dark
The screen's burning bright
We're scared of the future
We stare at the night
You're up for a struggle
You're up for a fight
As you make it up (you do)
We drift again
Sailing through days, like we don't know the way
Eclipsed again
Like the sun going down on the far side of town

It's easy to see
We're fighting a war but facing defeat
We're hardened by battle but lost on the streets
As you make it up as you go along (you do)

Somewhere at the back of your mind.
