Default Wolf's Skin - Alternative Rock Song

Hi all,

Wrote and recorded this song over the past weekend. The song name deliberately does not match the chorus text - I thought it was a different touch. Feedback most welcome:

WOLF’S SKIN
(Words by Jonathan Linton, Music by Jonathan Linton)

I should have known by the way you talk
It was too good to be true
Should have noticed when you hit the catwalk
We saw the real you
Smoke and mirrors
Fake figures
Give a great illusion
Your money givers
Give me shivers
Of unholy collusion

Silly me, you fooled me again
We take another hit to the chin
It’s all the same, not if but when
Wolves hidin’ in a sheep’s skin

I should have known by the way you look
It was too good to be true
Paid silence, but you’re not the crook
Didn’t see, didn’t do
Fox’ll give you
Bias review
To keep the great illusion
The right people
Mentally feeble
Propagate your delusion

Silly me, you fooled me again
We take another hit to the chin
You’re all the same, not if but when
Wolves hidin’ in a sheep’s skin
Wolves hidin’ in a sheep’s skin…………

SOLO

I should have known by the friends that you keep
It was too good to be true
Glimse of what lies under the sheep
Has now come into view
Do you remember?
You were a member
Of the opposition
Cause there’s no spine
You changed you mind
To pollster your position

Wolves hidin’ in a sheep’s skin
Wolves hidin’ in a sheep’s skin
Wolves hidin’ in a sheep’s skin
Wolves hidin’…… in a sheep’s skin

Hey Jon I'm diggin this bro !

You've really done great over the past few years improving your mixes and developing your sound.
Additional kudos to the(in my opinion) development your writing and composing.
Really cool to have heard this happening along the way. Great Job !!

Like I said diggin this, COOL ASS tune !

Not hearing the vocal harmonies similar to one of your influences as we have heard in previous tracks and most recently in, "I Won't Go"(another great tune) but still maintaining the style. Was that a conscience decision ?

Anyway CONGRATS !!! Good shit !!!

This sounds professional. Your voice reminds me of Paul Stanley, when you go up high. Guitars sound fantastic. Catchy, cool verse. Good job overall!

Thanks guys for the feedback! I have definitely learnt a lot in the last four years on my song writing/production journey and you guys were a big part of that, so a big fat thanks to you!

Really enjoyed this! Fantastic energy.. Nice composition. Like the guitar tone!

My only critique would be to maybe temper the snare a little. For me it poked out a little too much. I found myself focusing on it more than the song at times. It may be as easy as just rolling off some of the highs.

Great song!
