Let's start 2004 with some loud noise! This sucker was originally written way back in 1998, now I decided to re-record it. "Once more at crossroads of my life..." Some fun for guitarists included, too.
When I saw Metallica's St. Anger video, I thought I wanna sweat like Lars Ulrich! So that's how the main riff came about. Lyrics are (once again) about the modern man, lost in the wheel that spins ever faster.
...Aren't we all? A song about a darker side of being. Written in Oct 2002, the vocal style isn't most typical JT, as the melodies are quite low pitched. More shadows than usual...
Rythmical guitars and high-pitched vocals with just a bit of classical influences in the modulations. Killer chorus. Lyrically something about being here, there and beyond.
