Another old song idea (from 2012) with lyrics by Johnny Williams and my robot lady Vocaloid doing the guide vocal.

I'm not sure if guitars are needed. This might work well as a pure synthesizer song. What do you think?

Edit: I just noticed that there is a midi guitar in the song. :) So, yes, of course we need a guitarist.

Not For Sale
Lyrics: John Williams

Another girl with stars in her eyes
An a suitcase in her hands
Do big dreams ever get satisfied
All they seem to do is expand

Shot down over enemy ground
Now she's just tryin' to survive
a lost soul in a part of town
where you live but you never thrive

Clubs & bars on boulevards
with lonely men to buy her drinks
Now the back seat of a strangers car
is not as bad as she used to think

So tell me what is not for sale
In-between cold and hunger
Place your pride upon the scale
It's all you got left to plunder

So show me what's not for sale
In the valley of desperation
a million ways for a soul to fail
in the bargain for salvation

Out of college on mountain of debt
The economy is in a rut
Dabbles in the world of cyber theft
Risky...but it's easy bucks

Hiding in a fox-hole underground
a pick-pocket slight of hand
Tiny things can be so profound
Like hourglass grains of sand

He slipped up in a routine way
It's funny how fate can twist
Claiming your a victim is so cliché
for the typical narcissist

So tell me what is not for sale
In-between cold and hunger
Place your pride upon the scale
It's all you got left to plunder

So show me what's not for sale
In the valley of desperation
a million ways for a soul to fail
in the bargain for salvation
