Another New Song: The Drivetrain Turns

Last week, I posted my first effort at recording my own music here in the Cave.  Here is the lates effort.  Since a lot of people asked about the lyrics of the last song, I figured I'd go ahead and copy this song's lyrics so no one has to wonder.  Don't worry if my singing makes you cringe.  It makes me cringe too :)





the drivetrain has started turning again
but i don’t know where it’s taking me 
as it rolls along the way

it spins and spins and i go around in its wake
helpless and trying to find my way
in a world I don’t know anymore

the road unwinds and the drivetrain turns
and i’m wrenched and wound up tight 
the days slip by, and the night is brief
I should leave, I just might

The drivetrain has started turning again
But I don’t know where it’s taking me
I’ll just follow in my wake

the drivetrain gonna run me down
just scrape me off the pavement and dump me
because I can’t fight it anymore

I know there’s still a world around me
I don’t see it, I can’t hear it calling
I’m lost, and I need you to find me now

the road unwinds and the drivetrain turns
and i’m wrenched and wound up tight 
the days slip by, and the night is grief
I should leave, I just might

The drivetrain has started turning again
But I don’t know where it’s taking me
Guess I’ll follow in my wake

The drivetrain turns and I’m barely breathing
I can’t see at all, and I know that you’re leaving
I can’t feel at all, and my heart is left grieving again

It turns and it turns I don’t know what I’m thinking
I can’t see at all, please help me I’m sinking

I can’t feel at all, guess I’ll probably start drinking again.

Doing good Scott. I can relate to these lyrics. Very nice. I suggest one the next demo to put your vocals more out in front. Right now it's kind of a flat mix. Showcase the vocals and the lyrics. Your voice is not bad and could be much better with practice.

Thanks D! I appreciate the encouragement and advice. I'm already working on the next song, so I'll see what I can come up with :)
