Hide and Seek is an almost progressive rock song that started life as a single riff and mutated into the most complicated thing I've ever written. There are so many guitars in the finished mix (particularly the chorus) that the riffs all bleed together into a single wall of sound - and I love that about it.

Touch down on broken glass
I know that this will pass
Touch all the broken skin
Beaten brass is paper thin

Down and down and down again
Garments burned and soil turned
Down and down and down again

I'm gonna find you...

I'm over the mountains
And I can't land
But baby, I'm gonna find you

A burden of proof
On an innocent man
Oh, but they never mind you

My father sent me off to sea
With a broken back
And an apple tree

She is an ark in a wounded land
But the hangman knows
That you laid your child in the sand

Down and down and down again

Sounds like 1983. I love it! Always a pleasure to hear one of your new ones. I am looking forward to buying a copy next time I get paid. My "To Buy" list just got a little bit funkier :]

I especially liked the little musical interlude in the middle, Ian! Very rocking. Did you do everything on this?

Well produced, I hope you get air time!

Thanks as always,

Hey, thank you! I'm really quite thrilled that you're still following what I'm up to (and that you dig it). I did everything on the track. I'm uploading my entire finished album now, as we speak!
