Lyrics
SCAR TISSUE

I.
Old photographs in a drawer.
Broken pieces of a troubled past.
Images shake me to the core.
Don't want to see them anymore.
Don't want to see them anymore...

CHORUS:
I walk the road and I pay the toll.
Self-sabotaging I am my own foe!
Face in the mirror I don't want to know.
Nothing to show
but scar tissue...

II.
Memories of times gone by,
cling like leeches to my mind's eye.
Like to deny them but cannot lie
to myself.

CHORUS:
I walk the road and I pay the toll.
Self-sabotaging I am my own foe!
Face in the mirror I don't want to know.
Nothing to show
but scar tissue...

III.
Those things I regret the most,
haunting me like old Marley's ghost!
Constant howling in my brain!

CHORUS:
I walk the road and I pay the toll.
Self-sabotaging I am my own foe!
Face in the mirror I don't want to know.
Nothing to show
but scar tissue...

IV.
Old photographs in a drawer.
Broken pieces of a troubled past.
Don't want to see them anymore...

Hi Vic...
All I did to the vocals was raise the volume. Originally I wasn't happy with them so buried them in the mix. They have grown on me... I like the drums much better now, although i think they're far from perfect. Sooner or later I have to let go, or I'll never get the next project started!

Thanks for lending that second ear bro...

Be well!

Almost
Gothic sounding in the beginning. Made me think of Bauhaus, but the chorus changed that in a hurry. This would make a great live jam. Got that 'classic epic song' feel.

Thanks
for the kind words friend. It would have sounded a lot better if I had your mixing skills! But it is what it is and I mix solely by ear, testing a lot of presets and making only slight modifications to the one I finally settle on.

I know what you mean by live jam. The mid-section is wide open for that.

Be well friend!

This
sounds great to me. Everything's spacious, clear and separated. But if you'd ever like to hear an alternate mix, just PM.

Thank you Sir!
On your profile page you mention that you've a head full of ideas to flesh out. I'm pretty much in the same boat. Lot's of ideas, limited time to get them recorded. But that's life, right? Glad you enjoyed this one friend!

Be well!

Wonderful poetry Mike
so descriptive and...analytical? The guitars are fantastic as always in your music and suit so well those lyrics as does the vocal, cheers M

RE "poetry"
I tend to use a lot of words in my songs. I decided to be more sparse this time out. The music lent itself to that approach. Glad you still found it poetic!

"analytical": Self-analysis is a continual part of my Neoplatonist practice.

"guitars are fantastic": Another happy accident! :-)

Always good to hear from you my friend. Thanks for the listen and the kind words...

Be well!

Riveting photo. The song makes you stand up and listen, too. Crunchy Neil Young style guitars and lines, especially in the break. Wonderful stuff. We are all walking the road... and unfortunately the clock is ticking. Thanks, Mike.

RE photo:
I hadn't showered for some time when that was taken. ;-)

I like the Neil Young (w/CRAZY HORSE?) comparison, although I was hoping to sound a tad more contemporary than that.

Glad you enjoyed the tune Peter!

Be well friend!

Many thanks Kevin!
You are missed around here man. I actually thought about your work as I was recording this. But I didn't want to email while it was on the charts. That's kinda uncool. It's as close as I've ever gotten to the type of stuff you and the boys used to do here. Take it as a tribute!

Be well friend!
