"won't back down" kinda song

Steve Ison vocal, melody, instrumentation, production

Steve April lyrics, production

Dunno how it happened, found this in the Archives, wonderin' if perhaps we would be sued by Paris Hilton, maybe we decided not to post, then posted on another site a couple months ago, and went to the HON Top 30. (review scores)
Stand Tall

I may not be Paris Hilton, there's a little pain,
but I have inner riches hotels can't contain,
gonna stand tall, walk like a man,
live well, do the best I can.


I'm gonna get my share, give the rest to charity,
they'll be protected when they haul on me,
gonna stand tall, walk like a man,
live well, do the best I can.

if ifs were skiff we'd all be sailors,
if whole clothe, then we'd be tailors,
set my imagination free,
humble tailors, courageous sailors,
gonna stand tall, walk like a man,
live well, do the best I can.

in between the doors of perception
I'm a soul in space,
I can feel a divine connection
like a state of grace,
I'm so lucky I can see it in my loved one's face.
gonna stand tall, walk like a man,
live well, do the best I can.

oh let me tell ya now... x

Cup'A Coffee (Expresso)
"Got a lou Reed feel. Great tune guys. Keep up the great songs." reviewer from another site


Winnebago Pop-Top Adventure Van
"very good song, the lyrics, the texture and the elements are very good, finally some real indierock... I really like the sound and the work of the guitars, it feels like a very good band, with space and respect for each instrument...very good..." reviewer on another site


Indie Wavelength
"Pretty cool. It has a little bit of an Iggy Pop crossed with really early David Bowie crossed with mid-career Mick Jagger plus a splash of Violent Femmes, just because. Well composed with a classic, vintage american rock and roll garage vibe. Strong chorus and nice use of vocal harmonies. At under 3 minutes, it's hard not to like this if you like guitar driven psych rock. I'd listen again (and did). Best of luck, Peter Johnston RVA" reviewer from another site

"You sound like Lou reed! Gives velvet underground vibes. Really liked it." reviewer on another site
