My first attempt at slide. Actually this was shot in widescreen but Ning shrank it - you can see the wide screeen version at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NGEB0idrpNI

I used 2 instruments on this - the electric solid body to add a little punch to the bass lines.

Empty Streets

Whose streets are empty
Whose garden overgrown
Windows uncurtained
Like you: left all alone

If you’re brought up on lies and a promise of dust
When the ship has sailed out you’ll be left there to rust
And you’ll only do that because that’s what you must

Chorus

If you bring with you grey storms and strikes from a cloud
You can never be silent but can’t tell you’re loud
Maybe stand in and stand out from the crowd

Chorus

When telling your tales you invented a myth
For the innocent minds to be conjured with
Akin to you seeping the blood from the kith

chorus

When the plot has been lost can it ever be found
We know making a noise does not make you sound
When the voices are gone there is no-one around

Chorus

almost a sitar vibe great song (When the plot has been lost can it ever be found
We know making a noise does not make you sound
When the voices are gone there is no-one around) nice line
