Finished a couple new tunes in the studio recently.
If I can figure out how to get an MP3 up here, I'll post them so you can give a listen.
That may be a big "if."
New tricks. Old dog.
One tune is a tango I wrote about a textbook-perfect psychopath I encountered -- and the after-shocks from that don't appear to be finished, even now.
It's called "COLOR BLIND."
She’s the center of her world
She’s her one and only love
She’s only one who’s on her mind
No rainbow of deep emotions but
Shallow shades of grey
You could say her heart is color-blind.
She’ll smile at you so brightly
As long as you obey
Her every wish and whim and
Make sure she gets her way
If you watch her closely
She slips from time to time
Look behind her mask and you will find
She’s callously indifferent
And she can’t change: her heart is color blind
You’re just another ant she steps on
Strolling down the street
Never giving any thought to
What’s beneath her feet
And when her lying hurts you
The fault must all be yours
She’s convinced she’s flawless and divine
She’s callously indifferent, remorselessness defined
And she can’t change-- her heart is color blind.
Her mask of sanity
deadly and depraved
She can’t be saved;
her heart is color blind
Stay out of her way
or the price you will pay
is more than you can bear
No conscience there;
her heart is color blind...
