Lyrics:
I'm
Oh so shy
You won't find me, but
For
Me you'll die
Yes, you will, and well

I'll
Burn for you
If you ask me, but
You
Can't let go
I won't let you

I am the one
Who makes you fear
Just open your pockets
And pay with your tears

Who needs the birds?
To hell with the bees
Blood and oil
Thick as thieves

I
Help you grow
Feed your cities, and
You
Trust me so
With your babies, oh

For
You I'll fight
If you let me
I
Am your right
Come and get me

I am the one
Who makes you fear
Just open your pockets
And pay with your tears

Who needs the birds?
To hell with the bees
Blood and oil
Thick as thieves

I am the hand
That built all you see
Shattered by
Artillery

You push and you pull
But all around me
Are broken dreams
And apathy

I hadn't heard your stuff in a while, Ian. Great track! What's your next move? I might need your help, remixing my next album -- a solo project. I will let you check out some of the tracks once I have some of the stems in place.

Great stuff, as always, Ian. Lyrics, = great, too.

Thank you,

Hey, thank you! I'm currently trying to wrap up work on my next album. I'm hoping it'll be done by this summer. If you're curious, I keep an up-to-date set of songs at http://ianmarquismusic.com/album/faces-from-the-static-2013-wip. I'll be putting the new set on FF once it's done, of course :)

Also, I'd love to hear what you're up to!

Awesome! Things are pretty good on my end. Going well, but slow...

This is really fucking cool. I like the guitar tones you got going on in this track and how the verses just go full on 80s. Very nice.

wow! your music is great!! sounds like movie soundtrack.....to be honest, I wouldn't expect this kind of music from the cover. you look very serious in the picture.

Hey, thank you! I've been trying to improve my ability to make decent songs for years now. I've gotten better, but I still can't really get many people to listen!

to be honest, I think it's the cover. You look very serious in the picture--I would not have expected that kind of music. you need something more vibrate for the cover to get more people to listen and appreciate your talent

I thought I had set the album artwork to show, but I guess I didn't. I'm fixing that now.
