Nightmares

Your mind leaves your body and
You pick up the contraband
Somehow you try to fly
Venus is floating by
Yet no one seems to care
Shouldn't they even stare?
But they don't seem to notice that
You're here in your underwear

Chorus
Nightmares
Affairs
Bugbears
Are everywhere
Threadbare
Backstair
Do you dare
Deny, your nightmares?
Only in your dreams
Does luck (love in 3rd chorus)
Come in thirteens

The first is a dragon then
The jesters come dancing in
You're caught in crossfire of
Something from up above
Over the rainbow lies
Nothing but compromise
Unconsciously the truth comes through
Much more than you realize

Chorus

You're under the water now
Yet no one is asking how
The rooms all just disappear,
Can't see the end from here
Champagne and caviar
Notions go on so far
And sweat soaks the nightgown
As you wait for the morning star

Chorus

we have dragon dreams in common
That's a lot of syllable dexterity! Like singing Sondheim's Into The Woods. you have very exciting dreams. Most of my dreams have an espionage sense with people chasing and quick decision needed. May date back to me watching Man From U.N.C.L.E. in my youth. Lately, they are more like Game Of Thrones, without the sex (sadly). I dig the rushed feel, the sense of movement and sudden changes. Glad you posted the lyrics. THis was fun, thanks for sharing.

Wow
That's so wild man. I was HUGE MFU fan as a kid.
I wonder if there could be some connection. This was one of those songs that just sorta wrote itself. Once it got started, all I had to do was write it down.
Thanks man

Urgency
This song develops a wonderful contrast between a sense of driving, chaotic urgency in the music and a laid back, deep and relaxed vocal delivery.

I enjoyed this a lot.

Nightmares
Fascinating lyrics full of outrageous imagery. The music is good - the guitars especially fluid, and the slightly crazy drumming suits the theme. Interesting arrangement with plenty happening. Impressive work!

Thanks man
I was particularly fascinated by the "slightly crazy drumming" comment. I'm not really a drummer but like most guitar players, I love bashing around the kit (Roland V-Drums with a TD processor), so I'd like to think all the Gene Krupa and Keith Moon I've listened to over the years has sunk in. :)

Love the theme!
Very cool band, would love to see this love. Love the lyrics, with a Mark Knoffler music/ guitar feel (Dire straights). Seriously love this song! I'm a big fan, keep up the unique vibe!

tell him he's welcome to sit in anytime. :)

I'm digging the noodling through out
Nice changes an enjoyable progression. Where you dropped your drums in the mix was nicely done. Vocals are strong and the mix all in all was well done. Thoroughly enjoyed.

Like that snow
style of swinging, nice jingle jangle with guitar. Cool rocking. Like the sultans of swing feel with the guitar flows though it is of course your style I can hear that flare in a way Lots of cool stuff going on. Almost remind me of an allmann brothers dual guitar solo and the list goes on. AGain nice low singing, wish there was more of that in pop music today. It is almost everything is high vocals and glad your changin the mold !!! :)
