  • 06:21 Lyrics Cobwebs



    Dust on the mirror, clouding up your sight

    you just spent another crazy Friday night

    morning calls to early, coffee brews too slow

    don't tell me where you've been I already know


    cause I can see by the look that's on your face

    you're sick and tired of running this rat race

    Don't try and tell me that you're fine

    cause I can see the cobwebs in your mind


    Living in this world, rich men make the rules

    believing that the rest of us are only fools

    We've got to make a statement, let the people know

    the worlds driving on a dead end street with nowhere left to go


    and I swear these times have got to change

    The fault line we're living on cannot just be rearranged

    each of us has got to take the time

    to sweep out all the cobwebs in your mind


    All of those salt talks poured on open wounds

    the politicians can't agree cause they don't know what they're doing

    wasting all our money on nuclear power and bombs

    when nature gives us all the energy we could ever want


    Caught up in daily pressures trying to survive

    all we really want to do is to stay alive

    specks of dust in the universe is all we really are

    got to change our point of view to reach the morning star

The only music put out by this talented group of musicians, this live recording totally rocks. Michael Frazier wrote the songs and plays acoustic guitar and sings all main vocals. Tim Lamberson plays drums and sings harmonies. Jon Rose plays bass and sings harmonies. Frank Dosland plays electric lead guitar and Leo Clarksmith adds the acoustic fills to round out the sound.

Jim Flynn engineered and produced the music over a 3 day weekend. We basically ate, drank and slept music as well as rehearse and record.

These are my roots and this recording inspired dozens more from me. The band only lasted a short while, but I'm glad to have this recording and all the memories that go with it.
