Hi all,

Working on a new song idea. So far the basic parts are complete and chorus lyrics. Feedback most welcome:

NEW GENERATION
(Words by Jonathan Linton, Music by Jonathan Linton)

VERSE 1 (pending)

Government, now thatís joke
Spend today, tomorrow broke
Got new admiration
For the new generation
Someone turned the light off
From futureís bright payoff
Got new admiration
For the new generation

VERSE 2 (pending)

Government, now thatís joke
Spend today, tomorrow broke
Got new admiration
For the new generation
Someone turned the light off
From futureís bright payoff
Got new admiration
For the new generation

Here is the completed song. Vocals could be tighter, but this is just a demo to get the idea down:

NEW GENERATION
(Words by Jonathan Linton, Music by Jonathan Linton)

Todaysí generationís
A painful cremation
Burning oil, belching fumes
They protest, the farce resumes
Easy life today
Our future we repay
Nothing you can do or say
Plastic, toxic, doomsday

Government, now thatís joke
Spend today, tomorrow broke
Got new admiration
For the new generation
Someone turned the light off
From futureís bright payoff
Got new admiration
For the new generation

Get elected, lifetime seat
Cozy life, canít be beat
Vote for those who pay you good
Change your course, like driftwood
Easy life today
Our future we repay
Nothing you can do or say
Plastic, toxic, doomsday

Government, now thatís joke
Spend today, tomorrow broke
Got new admiration
For the new generation
Someone turned the light off
From futureís bright payoff
Got new admiration
For the new generation

SOLO

Government, now thatís joke
Spend today, tomorrow broke
Got new admiration
For the new generation
Someone turned the light off
From futureís bright payoff
Got new admiration
For the new generation

New generation, new generationÖ.

That sounds great Jonathan. Your vocals sound radio ready to me.

Wow, I just left a few words on another track elsewhere. Didn't know you were a Reaper user. This track sounds great, too. I know it is just a demo, but there is some pumping going on early in the track. Not sure if it is a sidechain issue or a limiting artifact, but it is worth looking at.

I never say this, but it would be great if you could carve more space for the vocals somehow. You have such a great voice that it would be nice to have it more prominent.

Enjoyed!
