The latest release in the run of singles that will be coming out digitally before the next full length release from Chris. This track was started at Melbourne Records in between sessions for The Feckers "It'd Be Rude Not To" album, and finished off at Chris' home earlier this month, with guest contributions from Dennis and Paul added in their home countries of USA and England.


I wanted to write a song
To the majority was wrong
Prehistoric they will say
It won't appeal to the youth of today

The instruments are real
The beat a human feel
A progression and a melody
Number one I'm not trying to be

And if you agree, or not with me
I will continue to be

(Wanted) to live in a way
In which that I do and say
Isn't something I saw on TV
Just from within and true to me

Very set in my ways
Is something you could say
Honesty's underrated but you can believe what I say

And if you see, another vision to me
We will continue to be

Continue to be
True to the vision that you see
Continue to be
As good a person you can be
And if the masses disagree
Don't compromise slightly

(Clap out of time, add lib vocals etc)
