Lyrics
A Stroke of Genius

You like to stray away
You like to stay away
You like to run the street
You like to say you’re sweet

Chorus
Running north but heading south
On a trip haven’t left the house
Telling a lie for an honest cause
Breaking the rules to uphold the laws
Cutting sweets by eating cake
Being real by acting fake
Starting the trip by standing still
Staying healthy from getting ill

A stroke of genius- you think it through
A stroke of genius- you feel so blue
A stroke of genius- you choose inaction
A stroke of genius- no satisfaction

A theory never proved
A mountain never moved
A journey never taken
A soul that’s not forsaken
Chorus

Living in tomorrow
Not in the day
Planning for failure
Not knowing a way

Scraping for better
Not seeing a light
The mind is a cloud
Perpetual night
Understanding for nothing
Contemplating for naught
Never search for discovery
Sit idle and rot

First of all let me welcome the new guy to MJ (lol)! You sound a lot like this eddie guy that used to hang around here!

You totally rock! Cool track! Well produced and mixed!

dude...i'd like to love this....but it sounds too much like another guy on here who had a bit of a breakdown after smoking too much crack. fasteddie was his name.....shame because he got signed by sony...and he just couldn't handle the fame.

anyway, back to this track.....um....er....it's growing on me big time....just like all those fasteddie tracks. yeah...this is really cool....i wouldn't call it hard rock....it's way more prog than that....can't wait to hear your get together with the master of prog - RP.

and by the way, i got in touch with the owners....they can change your name for you so you can keep all the fasteddie tracks and just change your name to finkledink.....or anything else that grabs you (please god let it be something else).

cool track mike.

Thanks Julian
The track is kind of blah but it was a good one to practice my mixing.

The next one will be far more caustic which is just the way it should be. He He!

Cool lyric, I like the ironic hook, and the way the contradictions develop it. The guitar lines weaving their way through are great, the doubling adds a fullness to the sound. Production sounds great.

Bad relativistic craziness
Another badass rocker. Man, you must spend forever on your drum tracks. I love that buzz at 2:23. Hahaha. Great. Very good lyrics. Well said. Keep up the good work. Looking forward to hearing this collab with Richie Pool, or whatever his name is. Should be good.

Thanks R_P
for having a listen. I usually put in about one hour of programming time for every 30 seconds of song. Man that is tedious but it's the only way I know. I have some drum loops but never learned how to use them and am too lazy to try.

This song also is the last one that I will do using a condenser mic for the guitar cabs. The Royer 121 is way better for that.

Thanks Vic
for having a listen.

I got that buzz by putting the chord on the ground plate on my bass.
Added a little bit of an interesting twist to the stop.

Reggie does indeed totally rock-expertly, but from listening to Stroke, he's not the only one. Perfect debut, man.

(still can't type your name, tho)

What a debut!
Nice track Mike! I never got the email notification so I'm glad I was surfing around MJ's tonight to catch this one. And, it sounds like another killer collab coming up with Reggie. (I'll be looking forward to hearing that!) I'm not too sure about that mike_d guy though, lol!

Huge metal sound here. I like the lyrics and vocals that back them up. You have a real HM style going on.

nice harmony
I like the harmony effect - has a metalica feel to it, also a touch of hawkwind too. Nice guitar work - that lead really threads nicely throught the chord sequence. Cool.

I'll have to google hawkwind and check that band out.

Being stroked by a genius?
Whether this is finkeldink or fasteddie is all relative :-) This song can't be seen in a vacuum because it is elemental and has the added dimensions to simultaneously move time and space with its awesomeness. Albert would be proud. Regards, Peter.

Stroke of Genius
What a cool rockin tune! Why, I haven't heard anything this cool and hard rockin here since this other cat - Fast Eddie was his name I think (I'll bet you are getting real tired of being compared to him, huh).

Can't wait to hear those collabs! Enjoyed this - thanks!
