Never Again - Grunge Song

Hi all,

Hadn't written anything for while, but the pause came to an end today. Wrote this song quite quickly - sometimes breaks are good to clear the mind. Feedback most welcome:

NEVER AGAIN
(Words by Jonathan Linton, Music by Jonathan Linton)

Use your stealth, find a victim
Cheat into their inner sanctum
For you to rise, others must fall
First through the slime, you must crawl

But I won’t be fooled
No, never again
Won’t be ridiculed
Never again

I put my trust in you
And you stabbed me in the back
No, no, never again
No! Never again

One day your time will come
Not every victim’s so dumb
Those who you’ve fooled, will turn against you
A slime creature hidden from view

But I won’t be fooled
No, never again
Won’t be ridiculed
Never again

I put my trust in you
And you stabbed me in the back
No, no, never again
No! Never again

SOLO

No!
I put my trust in you
And you stabbed me in the back
No, no, never again
No! Never again

AIC meet J. Priest --- very very cool. I love songs about making a stand - retribution and comeuppance! Pretty solid all round and not much to criticize at all. As a producer I'd love to hear a harmony guitar playing on that solo with the main solo guitar - not through the whole solo - just a couple of the obvious moments to get the Priest element -- I'm thinking Sin After Sin album style.... I'm also wondering if there are a couple spots you could add some Wagnerian banshee wails.... You've totally got the growl and menace covered - a couple more piercing rage screams would be cool.... either with the vocals or a guitar track.... But super sweet. You're getting really tight with your stuff Jon.
