Justin Sandlin - Don't open your mouth unless you have something good to say.

I am not a record buyer...I am a crook!

I'm a genius and you're stupid!!!!

Just kidding, of course.  I don't think anyone is that much better than anyone else.

I do like the melody here. This one's getting downloaded.

Yeah, all my songs are demos really. I am not professional enough to produce a top quality recording on my own. Someday maybe...

kinda cool..the timing is a little off here and there, dont know if thats on purpose or not, watch for some vocal intonation problems here and there. on the other hand, the main guitar strumming thing produces a cool eerie effect. almost Boards of Canada, if you look at that by itself. The overall effect seems a little influenced by the doors..well, if this is just a demo, listen to it and rerecord it stronger.

the melody on this one didn't interest me as much as your other stuff.

As always, I can hear a great song in here. A producer could absolutely bring out all of your best musical qualities and downplay any weaknesses. A couple of the rhymes didn't work for me, but dammit, you're writing really strong songs that sadly get pulled under by vocals that needed more attention. I still think you rock!
This is a song about being thrown into a troubled world.

Here are the lyrics :

Tonight this town of ours is burning (They threw it all away)
From their mistakes, they weren't learning (They knew it all away)
One breeds another and yet another (They grew it all way)
When will they learn sister and brother

And here I stand right in the middle
Trying to solve this big riddle
And if it will come to me
I can save us

No one is safe, no one is higher (They threw it all away)
And with their words, they sting like fire (They rude it all away)
They shot off all of their missles (They blew it all away)
And all my hope has fizzled

And here I stand right in the middle
Trying to solve this big riddle
And if it will come to me
I can save us

Maybe you should join me
Stop evil for eternity
And I love earth

Tonight, we can end all our problems (Let's do it all today)
If we could just do something about them (Let's solve it all today)
But I know that we will eventually (It happened yesterday)
Repeat what all we did in history

And here I stand right in the middle
Trying to solve this big riddle
And if it will come to me
I can save, save, us
