The Scam (Spin) Indie Rock

  Spin-off   Spun by TheOther

This collaboration is finished, and not accepting any further uploads.


Creative Brief

This is a spin on one of jubal's awesome tunes. Thanks for lettin' me run with it, Jeff.

Needs some more mixing, maybe some other ideas ... I'm open.

There is a mix with sync and no vocals for re-tracking the lead vocal.

(I'm not planning on sending out invites)

Is it Indie Rock ? Don't know, but I really like the vibe here.  :)




The Crew (featured track):


jubal: writer, vocal, guitar

kman: mixmagic




The Scam

The leaders who distract you, you're eating from their hand

they plugged into your ego, they're workin on a plan

turn the T.V. off, prepare to go online

keep a pot of coffee brewin, its gonna take some time



You're damned if ya don't, damned if ya do

you can stick with what don't work, or build something new

your children love and trust you, to tell them what is true

you have to look closer, than sound bites on the news


You might not be used to it, thinkin for yourself

your views have been provided, came from someone else

but soon you'll like the freshness, of thinkin for yourself

muscle memory currency, a brand new kind of wealth



You're damned if ya don't, damned if ya do

you can stick with what don't work, or build something new

the young ones that you love so, they're lookin right at you

ya can't hope to guide them, if ya can't see whats true



Oh...refuse to, be spoon fed

Oh...refuse to, be one of the led


Its all up to you, how much can ya take?

your instincts now are telling you, "you can no longer wait"

no need to find the key first, just crash through the gate

time is of the essence, its now or its too late



The scam that ya bought, stands in the light

lookin for a shadow, naked in your sight

still it tries to spin ya, hoping that you might

buy into the next lie, like might makes right
