Description
this has been sitting around for several weeks now. as the new year came into being I thought back to last year, thinking okay this should be a easy year, no big plans or events, well i sure found out that the unexpected can really come into play. so who knows what can come about when you least expect it.

Lyrics
Outlook


ask your wish but you are not granted
dream your dream but it’s faded
crossed out months but you are not dated
have you practiced your daily meditation

lost on this road
and the the road lays so long
where are we to go
where do we belong

i don’t recall any good old days
there were no signs or lit up displays
ghosts of the past dreamed of future days
tomorrow is uncertain, maybe a little gray

lost on this road
and the the road lays so long
where are we to go
where do we belong

love and hate it’s up for debate
i know what you mean, what can i say
only nine lives don’t last forever
maybe our days together forever or never

lost on this road
and the the road lays so long
where are we to go
where do we belong

thanks Harald
the unexpected comes when you least expect it. or at least when you say to yourself "well, how bad can it really be."

The future
is always in motion, or so they say. Nice lyrics and the synth sound. Are synths played through guitar? Thank you for sharing.

thanks jay
for a change two of the synths were played on a keyboard, except the main electric guitar did have a blend of a synth mixed in with the guitar signal

i had no ideas for lyrics for 2 months on this. then wouldn't you know it.... the idea came and quickly wrote these in fifteen minutes. i wish i had a lot more of those 15 minutes so i could finish off 3 other songs.

Thoughtful lyrics. I love the guitar tones (including the fuzzy leads in the middle of the song) and the big sound of the backing. Neat fade, too. Fine work, Vic.

Melding
It does seems as if Spokane has been rather picked on as of late. "Tomorrow is uncertain, maybe a little gray" was probably written recalling the haze of forest fire smoke : )

Let's hope the power stays on!

Pairing words with sound is a tricky business. Sometimes it all flows together, but often it can take months to come together. Yet it's a great moment when the lyrical melds with the musical .. and it produces well made existential moments like this.

Can't say much that hasn't already been mentioned in the comments. Do feel the lyric's sentiments and enjoy the tune. Imaginative guitar work and production!

lamentations...
Lush guitar opening and throughout. Sorry I'm late to this song of yours. It deserves not only my listen but that of many. I give thumbs up to every element in this. I really like the sound. Bright singing instruments complimented by your vocal, singing words of lament, lyrics less than upbeat which fit well with the rather upbeat crystal instrumentation. Kudos, lad...

Late again
Nice sound here Vic. Solos are right on, and I like how the vocal doubling comes and goes. A loose style that works perfectly. The extro organ (?) is a nice touch over a fine mix and production. Appreciate the download.

Been on sabbatical, Vic. Stream of conscious lyrics. Good for the soul. Some great guitar tones and riffage, too (as expected :-)). Love the outro. A privilege, as always.

THAT has a bit of impact...
Finally got to listen this morning, and right after listening to someone else's thing. This one definitely had the 'mastered' impact...

I really like your solo on this one...Is there an electric 12-string on this, in amongst the guitar tracks?

I like the song as a song quite a bit, including melody and lyrics. I also like the fade-out...

My only mild crit is that it seems like there are a couple drum fills that busy the groove along the way rather than driving it...
