Broadjam Member Reviews

Captivating start.. entices you to listen.. Great honest and beautiful voice.. nice synth voicing intro.. Nice transition to the reggae feel..

    - Ronald Arduini

Every songwriter has to have a peace song...here's one with a Caribbean beat. The chorus is the strongest part of the song. The message is universal and asks the question that so many of us are asking after we watch the nightly news: How come people are so mean to each other...killing for no apparent reason. This song will have a wide appeal because of its heartfelt message.

    - Kate Carpenter
Lyrics

HELL TO PAY
Words & Music by Thomas Reock


I DON?T WANNA LIVE
I DON'T WANNA DIE
IN A WORLD THAT?S COLD AS ICE
I DON?T WANNA TRY
IF I CAN HAVE NO SAY
WE GOTTA START RIGHT NOW
BEFORE THERE?S HELL TO PAY

I WONDER WHY THERE?S SO MUCH HATE IN THIS WORLD
WITH PEOPLE KILLING ONE ANOTHER FOR NO REASON
WE WANNA LIVE THIS LIFE WITH DREAMS IN HAND
TO CHANGE THIS PLANET THAT WE LIVE ON
TO GOOD FROM BAD, TO GOOD FROM BAD

chorus

DON?T TURN OUR BACKS ON ONE ANOTHER
DON?T LOOK AWAY, DON?T LOOK AWAY
ALL THE DIFFERENT RACES AND COLORS ARE HERE TO STAY, THEY?RE HERE TO STAY
IF WE COULD ALL JUST LIVE TOGETHER, THAT?S A START
INSTEAD THE PEOPLE ROUND THIS WORLD
ARE SO FAR APART, SO FAR APART
