The multi-tracks for this tune was laying around for quite a while, till Steffen came up with a fabulous mix.......

There's loads of tracks enough for various mix iterations, and there's one we owe Steve (Smith) with his drums track.

COMMUNICATION (De Priest/Gupta/Fletcher/Wilkerson) (104bpm) (c) 2010,2017

Verse 1: (0:27 -)
Em
I think I died tonight.
I'm sure I did.
Some random electronic surge
Knocked me off the grid.
Verse 2:
And severed each connection,
All my circuits shutting down.
Left me helpless, deaf and dumb
Cut off from light and sound.

Chorus: (0:54 -)
C
Though it was too dark to see
I could feel reality
A
Like a shadow, patiently,
                                       Em
Reaching out and touching me.
G
Now I've lost all connection.
How will I know who to be?
A
Solitude, like an infection
                                      Em
Reaching out and touching me.

Short Instrumental (1:32 - )

Verse 3: (1:41 - )
At least I had my phone.
The tiny screen
Helped me fight the desperate urge
That made me want to scream.
Verse 4:
The battery was running out.
I felt a wave of cold despair
Like a diver, trapped below
Slowly running out of air.

Chorus: (2:08 - )
Though it was too dark to see
I could feel reality
Like a shadow, patiently,
Reaching out and touching me.
Now I've lost all connection.
How will I know who to be?
Solitude, like an infection
Reaching out and touching me.

Solo for guitar (2:45 - )

Verse 5: (3:22 - )
I ran out in the night.
And all around
Other people, deaf and dumb
Cut off from light and sound.
Verse 6:
Desperate for connection
We all began to talk.
Conversations with no hands,
Up and down the block.

Repeat Chorus (3:50 - )

Outro : Instrumental break (4:28 - )

Well done guys.

I've always loved this tune and this version is epic.

Great mix Steffen.
It reminds me of the late great Leonard Cohen's later stuff.
 Cool

You give them the sheet music !!!     BOOM! BOOM!

Hi Steve,

Appreciate the kind works, glad you like the song!

Do you have your drums seps at hand,  if so, would you mind posting them up again? If you don't, no worry, I have them archived.

Might as well get mix master Steffen have a crack at them!
