Lyrics
Tied down (in the river)

You think it's a dream
That things ain't what they seem
That you ain't ten feet down
In a river

You think you can swim
But eye's getting dim
Got your feet tied down ten feet deep down
In a river

Just a short cut here
Just a quick buck there
Just a fast run out
It's what it's all about

Just some easy money
For a willing honey
And a medium rare
It's what it's all about

You did the right thing wrong
Or the wrong thing right
And now them heavy people left you ten feet deep down
In the river

You look to the sky
Are you really gonna die
Time to say bye bye deep down
In the river

Beefheartian...
What a GREAT song. Ther words are
exactly right. So dark. I'm really impressed. This is
beautiful. I think does exactly what it sets out to be. Like
the little pause after "it's all about..." too.

Thanks! I fell for the strange sound of the Dobro. I realise it's a bit repetative and monotonous, but that's kind of the whole idea. And of course the lyrics can be interpreted in many different ways — i shall not say which is the right one! ;-)

Thanks again for the input, it's very much appreciated.

Thanks! It's really another road from the work i've done so far. I think it's time i did some more experimenting. The feedback i've gotten on this one is really a motivation for that.

Your comment is much appreciated!

what it's all about
Thanks! Well I'm not much of a "real" guitar player, but i'm working on a new song no which actually is guitar based. Feel free to comment on that (as long as you don't mock my guitar ;-)

I worry that the person who thought up Muzak may be thinking up something else.

Old and new
Thanks! It's always hard to classify your own stuff but this one sure is extra
hard. Maybe some folk, maybe some blues... i don't know. It's just fun to try
different things. I think i'll try a reggea next ;-)

Thanks again for the input it's very much appreciated.
