Doggone if you didn't do it again!  Great production, great performance, and cool video.  How do you do it so consistently?

Outstanding work --- keep 'em coming!

Good tune with an important message. Didn't quite get the connection with some of the video clips, but I did like the models in the bikinis. 🙂

Ah Ha, the secret to a good video!!!!

Thanks for the kind comments - always appreciated

Hi Nigel, great tune / performance / production / video! A previous post mentioned an 80's vibe and I completely agree. The mix sounds really good on my laptop speakers which are pretty unforgiving.

very interesting, is there a chance to post the lyrics?  I had a hard time hearing them.  Obviously you spent a considerable amount of time on this, excellent effort.

I do love horses, but am confused on how that fit in with the rest of the video.  That was a fine horse though.

Hi Jesse

Here's the lyrics - I don't think you can make things all doom laden, otherwise people won't watch them - but most people like, well, horses😎 So entice them  into the song and the video with words like "Lovers" and pictures of , well horses, then Hit them with the message!!!!!!

Do you think that's a good tactic? - would love your opinions on that

Cheers

Nigel

 

Take it all 

Evil sun on a blackend sky

Rain gleams on the castle so high

Hopes dashed as they walk on by

Lover’s dream of Versailles

Clouds of doom Hide the moon

Intimidation fills the room

Your eyes peer through the spikey gloom

You weren’t born with no silver spoon

 

Whatever you want to do

It’s all up to you

Leave this world behind

Take a trip, take a ride, take the Sun

Take your mind

Take it All

 

Ice Lake shatters and cracks

Bees die by the axe

Rain forests shed a tear

Speeches just a veneer

 

Take what you see

Take all their guarantees

Take what you see

No need to disagree

 

Take it all

Take it now

Take it now

But Take it All

 

 

Collapsing around our ears

No answers want to appear

Seven billion way too much

World leaders so out of touch

Scorch the earth to feed mankind

Pollute the seas we’re all blind

Plastic mountains touch the sky

Where’s our voice our outcry

 

Whatever you want to do

It’s all up to you

Leave this world behind

Take a trip, take a ride, take the Sun

Take your mind

Take it All

Love the Vanelli-esque bass line.! Vocals are right in the pocket and the mix holds together well. Good job!

Hi Dan

Thanks for the very kind comments -   always appreciated

I think Gina our vocalist really kicked it out the park on this album - she has received a great deal of very positive comments, which I think she really deserves - and to think, once upon a time I used to try and sing    myself on our stuff!!!!!!!! We've actually been working on   an album of all our very old stuff (some of which I sang on   😖) and Gina has re done the vocals - they all sound like brand new tracks....even though some are getting on for 20 years old!!  We've called it Regeneration and its going to get released around March time -  I just wish I could do a bit of    Regeneration  on myself   😎😎

Keep well

Nigel
