Something for now: The Road Out of Here

"The Road Out of Here" is one of the pieces on my upcoming record "The Lucky One." I've previously released a solo looped version of this tune via this site. The version on "The Lucky One" is supported by a full band, but it's got the same reckless energy as the looped piece. The lyrics for this piece seem apropos to recent events in America and the world, so here they are. Enjoy. "The Road Out of Here" copyright 2016 by R. Hunter/Turtle Hill Productions, all rights reserved On the road Out of here Communication is frequently unclear Information Is easily received But nobody knows what they can believe We watch the Sky Swinging from greed to fear You better bring more than your eyes and ears If you wanna know who's driving On the road out of here On the road Out of here You're king of the mountain or you disappear Number one Gets a lot Number two gets a little Number three gets not The mountain is steep And the dropoff is sudden and sheer A whole lotta people gonna fall to the rear It's the rule of the road on the road out of here On the road out of here The preppies are playing with stolen gear Trading shots Swapping knives Practicing lying to their future wives Well honey they'll say I'm just going out for a beer But the bars are all closed She will yell through her tears While his car speeds away on the road out of here On the road out of here No signal you send ever disappears What you say what you buy where you go Everybody knows it everybody knows It's a world without secrets And we are transparently clear And when I know what secrets you cherish and fear I'm gonna drive you around on the road out of here
