Love the intro,really grabs you & pulls you into the song. Great bass & drum kick off lick @ :12.Love the driving guitar work - great overdrive sound! Strong rock vocal performance. Pre-chorus sets up chorus nicely. Unique background vocals on the chorus. The guitar break @ :57 & 1:48 are great set ups for the next verse. Love the chants @ 3:33. Love the change in drum pattern @3:37. Reminds me of Foreigner and Aerosmith. Good work! Added to my favorites.

good ole fashion rock n roll! like the layered voices nothing like those harmonies

Lyrics

Shock to the System

Words and music by Malcolm Todd Sloan of The Woodmen

Verse One

The stories we hear
The things we see
I?m scratchin? my head
Lord, it just can?t be

Turn on the TV
You got men kissin? men
And if that ain?t enough
There?s always some "Ben and Jen"

Bridge

Save me, save me, save me now
Save me, save me, tell me how . . .

Chorus

It?s such a shock . . .
Shock to the System
What a shock . . .
Shock to the System
I'm in shock!

Verse Two

Yes, the times have changed
This much is true
Now if it?s eBay you want
Well, I?ll just have to do

We?re payin? for water
We?re payin for air
And if it wasn?t for TIVO
You just wouldn?t care

Bridge
Change it, change it, change it now
Change it, change it, tell me how . . .

Chorus
It?s such a shock . . .
It's a Shock to the System
What a shock . . .
Shock to the System

Verse Three

What?s left isn?t right
And what?s right is so wrong
If the future is now
You can color me gone

Has the world gone mad?
I?m at a total loss
It?s times like these
I thank God for The Boss (he don?t)

Shock me . . . Shock to the System
Shock me . . . Shock to the System
Shock me . . . It's a Shock to the System
SHOCK ME! Make me feel better (Hey!)

Lead Guitar

Bridge

(let?s) Change it, change it, change it now
Change it, change it, tell me how?

Chorus

It?s such a shock . . .
It's a Shock to the System
What a shock . . .
Shock to the System
(yes, indeed)

It's a shock . . .
Shock to the System
One, two three, what a shock . . .
Shock to the System

Outro

Hey! Hey! Hey!
Hey! Hey! Hey!
Yes, I got a little bit o' Shock!

Hey! Hey! Hey!
Hey! Hey! Hey!
It's a Shock to the System, mama

Hey! Hey! Hey!
Hey! Hey! Hey!
