Crossroads  –  listen[mp3]
I remixed this track after sending it to the Crossroads Songfight! Along with incorporating some of the feedback from the fine folks over there, I had to redo the snare drum because as Kevin pointed out, it sounded like I was beating on paper. Check out the fight (especially MaxTheCat and Loyalty Day.)

A couple of notes:
- I played the guitar solo on acoustic and electric for extra beef.
- I don’t own a Ludwig 6.5″ snare. The new snare track is the old one run through Drumagog and BFD.

STORY
We’re all the same: No matter how much good advice our friends give us, no matter how much the world pleads with us to seize the day, and take control of our lives, we end up avoiding the really big decisions until we’re drunk.
LYRICS
Since we’re here tonight
we might as well get it all out.
We’ve gotta figure it all out.
I’ve got a bottle, and a plan.

Still, we can’t agree,
all the lies that mislead us.
We’ve got a mountain between us.
You’ve got the bottle in your hand.

  We’re standing at the crossroads
  Of the way we are and all the things we want to be.
  We can’t settle it but I know
  in the sober light of day
  it’ll come to me …

We get a call in life.
We get the chance to be leaders.
We get to shine and believe it
we’d have it any other way.

And we’re past our time,
we lost the chance and the moment.
And sure the whole world told us
but what does anybody know?

    Where ARE you? Have you fallen off the face of the earth? I’m dying for new Deshead music.
