Yeah man !! Pretty happy with this tune. Smiley Actually I'm pretty happy with any of the songs that have been created at MCS. This song came together very, very quickly and that was due to all of the people involved. No foolin' around man! A BIG thanks guys !! Vocals & lyrics are just top notch. The solo's are killer. It's like a Battle Royale' going on. I keep looking for James Bond. 

It's been Testafied  Smiley

I will post an ape soon

(The idea is the spy being taken into the forest to be despatched re espionage!)

Break with Protocol

In the forest stands a tree so tall
If no-ones there who will hear it fall
It's roots have dug through many years
Covert party approaching near
An end in sight, transgressors justice
Unexpected, but possible life-twist
To kneel, resigned to meet lead's destiny
Or from the bough on twine to sway

All because you made a break with protocol,
You broke the rules when you set out your stall
When representing the few, your eye strayed from the ball
There's no escape don't even try to crawl
You broke with protocol

Rules are there, some say to be broken
Unwritten words so softly spoken
Body language that's never seen
Behind grand gestures, so clearly token
Whispered direction from unlikely places
Concise instructions, but never faces
If they fall on deaf ears are they heard
Inaudible guidance that leaves no traces

All because you made a break with protocol,
You broke the rules when you set out your stall
Representing the few, you let your eye slip from the ball
There's no escape, there will be no curtain call

There's just one chance you had at this
You prepared the hit in confusion's mist
The point is made to few, not all
You must never, never break with protocol

All because you made a break with protocol,
You broke the rules when you set out your stall
Representing the few, you took your eye off of the ball
There's no escape, there won't be no curtain call

You only had one chance at this
Prepared the hit but in confusion missed
The point is made to few, not all
You must never, never break with protocol

You must never break with protocol
You must never, never break with protocol

Listened to Nicks mix the day he posted it on the project thread. Nice work to everyone involved.
Nicks mix is excellent. When you guys were working on this song I made some comments regarding production. Had some concerns and  so I posted some feed back. But Nick has taken care of those for the most part.  First of all I think Paul's keys solo is not only awesome but original and inventive. It goes really well with R4M's solo work too. And R4M your solo is very cool too and I like the way it enter twines with Pauls solo.
Yes you have the next James Bond tune here but the James bond people don't know it's been written well ahead of the next movie and Bonds  next girl for that matter.

Congratulations

Thanks Tubes, much appreciated bro.

Dave, I made a little revision to the credits my friend........your name is first, it was your original bed track pal, so you wrote the music!!

I only took the liberty of slicing and dicing it around a little and yeah I did write and sing the lyrics, but that was only in response to the inspiration generated from your excellent bed track bro. You get the primary credit for this Dave, not me!!!!

Thanks everyone involved, your input has been absolutely awesome and I've really enjoyed being part of this one. Smiley Grin Smiley Grin

Sounds cool!

Another superb vocal. Really enjoyed the solos too. I liked that break when the drums stopped....got my attention. As always, Nick delivers on an excellent mix!

Great job everyone!

Ok Steve, It's all formality to me. As long as everyone gets their fair share when the song makes a kazillion dollars. Not paying the drummer though.  Grin

Thanks for listening Tubes, Jeff, & David. Appreciate it.  Cool

Wow, this is rockin.  Great performances by all!

I do believe that the lead vocal is being masked a bit by the backing guitars and keys.

Thanks Steve and Dave. Smiley

I asked Cary for specifics on this mix. I'm always trying to better my craft. I hear what you mean Cary. Got busy 2k to 5K. Thanks for the critique.

Hi folks,
Still in bed, just got up after receiving a phone call from Germany, from Steve (Stephen Moeller) and it got me standing up.
Great mix Nick... Really, really sounding hot. Much thanks, you all, for letting me in.

But, I don't remember having that delayed playing after the solos. Was that an option or is something wrong with the files I uploaded?

Guys... I will have this one playing all over the place, I swear  Shocked

Paulo !! Really happy you dropped by. Hell of a job brother !! Get well soon man. We need your fine keyboard playing around here.  Cool

The delay may be something that Nick added. I don't think I did Huh?

I'm glad you really let loose on this one. It works well. That trade off between you and Bill is classic !!!  Grin
