Hi all,

This is an older with retracked vocals and solo with a remix. Kemper released some awesome ambient delays last year which inspired me to write this. Feedback most welcome:

SANDS OF TIME
(Words by Jonathan Linton, Music by Jonathan Linton)

Mountain to climb
And running out of time
Final countdown
Lollygagged around
Only you’re to blame
For what you became
Apathetic soul
Loosing control

A steep cliff, for you to climb
But it’s running, slipping
Through your hands
The sands of time
The sands of time

Take self-control
Come out your foxhole
Stitch in time
Can save you nine
Break from the chains
And stop with the blame
Apathetic soul
Take self-control

A steep cliff, for you to climb
But it’s running, slipping
Through your hands
The sands of time
The sands of time

SOLO

A steep cliff, for you to climb
But it’s running, slipping
Through your hands
The sands of time
A steep cliff, for you to climb
But it’s running, slipping
Through your hands
The sands of time
The sands of time

This one is pretty cool -- it's got that really wet late 70's into early 80's space rock feel - Don Felder meets Jerry Cantrell meets Rob Halford. Could be a song on the soundtrack to the film Heavy Metal.... Great Chorus and super cool solo too.... Really really nice - and the vocals are pretty spot on here - great performances and love the harmonies as well.
