Song Description
A CLASH of Black Sabbath and Cream gives us this next epic track by Holloway! An apocalyptic premonition of systemic war and destruction presented through the musical medium of only the heaviest of rock. A not-so-new-sound but a new song that'll take you back to the times when rock music was at its peak!

You let your happy smile turn into a frown.
You're not connected anymore, no common ground.

You're the king of the world now that you've been crowned.
Looking for the weak that you can confound.
You've got to round them up and put them in a compound.
You've let your only child get cast around.
Wake up from your trance, you're becoming spellbound.

You've pulled too hard on the string and now its all unwound.
Get on a greyhound that's heading westbound.
They will hunt you down until you've been found.
They follow you everywhere creating your background.
You've lost your only voice, you can't make a sound.
You made your final choice, don't you know it's unsound.
Learn what you can from the meanings expound.

Is it the end of the world or is it not that profound?
Nostradamus prophecies are becoming earthbound.
Look up at the sky, at whats coming down.
Duck your head and cover from the coming inbound.
Oh Lord no!

It's too late for you to leave town.
Will you start to swim or will you let yourself drown?
Will you run and hide and not make a sound?
Will humanity survive? Can it rebound?
You have the rest of your life to live underground.
Are you heading for a burial ground?

Do you want war? Do you like pain?
Do you want more? Do you like playing this game?

The guitars sound a bit harsh, like they're coming through an amp simulation or the output of an amp head without any cabinet or room mic.

Vocals are great. You've got a fantastic tone to your voice.

HollowayLive responds:

Thanks for the insight, and compliment.
We are using a fender twin amp 1972, mic'd into a Fairchild preamp.
