The Cave
(c) 2020 BJZ

Guitars - James "Jyemz aka jamesg1213" Griffiths
Bass, Strings - Ed "Bapu" Kocol

Special guests:

Piano, Organ, Synth - Dave "Bitflipper" Townsend

Verse 1:
Black holes spread across the skies
Silent bubbles, emit no cries
Lost in whirlpools of empty dreams
Built upon all the silent screams

Chorus:
I'm crawling out of my cave
Looking for something
To save me from the night
I'm crawling out of my cave
And walking toward the light and you

Verse 2:
Worlds so strange they are frightening
With silent thunder, and invisible lightening
We long to be there and start again
Before we begin it may be the end (of us)

Repeat Chorus
Solos
Repeat Chorus

Bridge:
Everyone has a cave
A place to call their own
What it cannot do is save
The world by being alone

Verse 3:
The solice was once so welcome
All the while defining my freedom
The world may never be the same again
Brought to bear by the ego of men

Repeat Chorus
Solo
Repeat Chorus

Good to see a couple of those names in there!  The only thing missing is one of those trippy videos by James. 😉

I consider this a song of hope for the future as I sit, stuck in my cave... 😶

Took me a minute to get over my claustrophobia attack seeing that picture.
Wow you guys know how to make a song sound Epic. Love the vocal delay and the guitar accomp and solo.
Excellent drums. Very catchy chorus. Nicely done!

Nice to see/hear Bitflipper on a track. I like the delay on the vocal what did you use?

Production as ever is good, nice mix with space for all, perhaps a little more presence on your Bass would be cool Ed, I like to hear all the bass.

Nice job chaps very prog.

Thanks for the positive responses, folks.

The delay used is Soundtoys Echoboy with a 1/2 note ping pong delay.

I think you should consider an alternate version with Zargg's vocal sung in German. Duct tape some fireworks to his boots and then make that video.

This is a cool hard rocker - I enjoyed the listen. I thought the lyrics were quite impressive, and the arrangement of the song works very well.

The lead guitar and synthesizer sections were nicely done.

It's a fine mix to my ears - the separation and depth are there.

wow, the delay on the vocals is awesome, all around cool song🤩

Interesting production note. Ken mixed his vocals, against a mix of the song, the way he wanted them and sent me his project and I imported it exactly as it was into my final mix project. I only had to set the level to sit in the pocket.

Thanks for the listen and we're glad you liked it.

Thanks @bjornpdx for the very kind words and listen. I also think Dave's piano is the real hidden gem in this one.

Great Job everyone - as Wookie says, very prog!!

Some real nice playing all round - love the guitar parts from James and Dave's keyboard parts fit just right.

Well done one and all! (though the jpg caused a little twinge of claustrophobia!)
