I am a musician/singer/songwritter. I have been looking for other like minded musicians to work with, for quite some time now. I have put posts
on several musician websites, looking for musicians etc.. I have yet to find musicians that 1) don't have huge egos to deal with, 2) aren't in it
for the money, 3) understand and agree with the concepts behind the music I am, and want to continue to write. 4) That aren't in it for fame, 5) that
are in it strictly for the music, and the message within.
So this is what I would like. I would like some people on this board to listen to a song I wrote, called Free The Damned. It isn't complete
yet, as I still need to find other musicians to work with. So it is the best I am able to do on my own. I play all the instruments, sing etc.. So I
would like your opinions on this song. I have let a few people listen to this in the past. To be honest, I got mixed reviews. It was a couple of years
ago, and I do have the opinion. That it was ahead of it's time. It was before most people were able to see, all of the corruption going on around us
currently. So my curiosity, is what people will think about it now. Especially people on this website specifically. Why? Here are the lyrics, they
should speak for themselves as to why I want your opinions.
Free the Damned
Look around, tell you what I see.
Programmed people after me,
cause of the man that I am.
I try to free the damned.
Systems to control your mind.
Your freedoms taken every time.
Can't you feel it man?
It's time to free the damned.
To the people after me,
I've got a message you should heed.
Don't you mess with a man,
that serves the Great I Am.
You think that nice guys finish last?
At least I won't pay with my a$$,
for the man that I've been.
Last wins in the end.
Well I'm tired of all this talk,
about the land of the free.
'Cause when I look around,
that's not what I see.
I see people runnin' round,
in their fake a$$ lives.
Self-righteous as Hell,
with no reguard for a life.
I see a country that was built,
by exploiting the "free".
And a government so corrupt,
that they're too blind to see.
That every single time,
they exploit a life.
That that debt is written down,
in the Book of Life.
So go ahead and act self-righteous.
Go ahead and act free.
There's signs all around,
yet you refuse to see.
But when it all boils down,
it comes to this right here.
A higher power is in control,
and that is crystal clear.
You can listen to it here: museeks.com...
Please don't buy the download, unless you REALLY want to. You can listen to streaming audio at this site for free. You can also read more about what
I am trying to do musically etc.. So please don't feel like I am trying to make any money off any of you. I am not in this for the money. I just
want to know, if you like this song at all? Is it a waiste of my time and effort? Or is this something I should keep persueing? I would also be
interested in hearing from any musicians, that would like to join me in this effort. Or if you know people that can help out in this process, please
let me know.
Thank you all for your time and consideration,
P.S. Please let me know about the quality of the streaming audio on this site. I am interested if the song pauses while you are listening to it, and
if that is due to computer speed. I.E. if you have broadband, etc., are you able to listen to it without it pausing in the process? Or does it do that
