Lyrics
Angel Wept On A Tinfoil Lawn

final words had been said
final memories laid to rest
final words what they meant
final memories lost there scent
could one tear change the world
could one tear show our fears

angel wept on a tinfoil lawn
ghost of a image still lingers on
the tears that fell are still in place
angel wept on a tinfoil lawn

maybe an angel lost her way
maybe the wings grounded for life
maybe she forgot how to fly
how many tears shed day or night
does happiness come over night
need more angels to show what is right

angel wept on a tinfoil lawn
ghost of a image still lingers on
the tears that fell are still in place
angel wept on a tinfoil lawn

an angel wept
an angel wept

wield the sword to severe ties
slash the truth to cut down lies
quick departure to avoid goodbyes
seeks heaven or a place to hide
angel sheds tears for the world
maybe the world she never knew

angel wept on a tinfoil lawn
ghost of a image still lingers on
the tears that fell are still in place
angel wept on a tinfoil lawn

Titles
like that get attention if just from curiosity. Didn't expect the slidelike guitar and loved it. Is it a slide or just the way you're playing?

the solo is a slide, a beat up old thing that i've had since a early teenager. it has been quite awhile since i have used it. the ending guitar solo is just picking

Stream of consciousness sonic dream. The behind the beat vocals give it a floating quality. Builds into something very good. Thanks, Vic.

sonic dream... i like that, it just might make for a song title. i just might use that line.

mystrag said 607 days ago (September 23rd, 2015)
what a title
Only you could come up with such a title then also come up with a great song like this. Beatles might have had something like this if they lasted until 80s. Sliding guitar part rocks, so does bassline. Anyway, I like it a lot. Thanks and cheers.

i was also thinking it had a bit of a post beatle sound to it. i was wondering if anyone would catch that.

Tinfoil lawn
The great thing about a tinfoil lawn is it doesn't require mowing. Or watering.

I love it when lyrics written for another song mesh with a different melody. Sometimes you just have to go with what works .. no matter what your original concept was suggesting.

Not being the religious type, I had more fun listening to this by substituting the word "alien" for "angel" : )

hi warren
the alien angle for angels. i'm not really religious. i think angels make for a great metaphor for someone who has there heart into a cause or someone who was very good and lost their way. i still need to to write lyrics for the other song... or three

i think it was the dual delay effect that actually inspired this song. when practicing this before recording i already heard the slide in my head. it has been some time since i used the slide as well.

You keep batting these ones over the fence Vic. I too love the psychedelia
that seems to get woven into your vocals. Bits of the extro with the Ahh-ahh remind me a lot of the Moody Blues. Doesn't matter - the whole thing just works really well. Nicely put together, and a great mix to boot.

Hey Vic, a big mix ... like the bass in this .. especially when you go walking.... drums are well assembled.
Everything very clear and in their own space ... I thought George Harrison wasn't around anymore?? :) Great title and words to boot.
A lot of intricate things in this piece all put together like a fine meal.
Cheers

You’ve found
a grove that’s endlessly appealing.
Reminds me of what I listened to and loved when I was young.
Another great one.
Cheers.

Works a treat Vic
Psychedelia for sure - I'm hearing The Move here. Lyrics appropriately "deep and meaningful". Nice tones (as usual) on the guits. Cool post!

Bright guitars, with a "Lucy in the Sky" feel to it. Entertaining, Vic!
