Soundbite

It’s not my time you’re wasting (2)

It’s not my time, it’s not my time

It’s your time you’re wasting

 

Chorus

All right, turn a light on

And the good times go on and on and on

 

It’s not my body you’re raping

It’s not my money you’re taking

Welcome to the soundbite generation

Welcome to the soundbite generation

Chorus

Coca-cola and George Bush commercials

Everybody and his uncle selling themselves

We’re all slaves to the soundbite

Thank God, a Coca-Cola can, can’t run for the White House

Chorus

    I love it! I’m thinking of writing in ‘Coca Cola can’ for the next election.

  2. Fantastic song Derek! This is going on my Facebook…LOL

  3. Love it, and I am feeling the lyrics!! Sorry for being a little MIA for the past couple of days. Had to take a little family time. Hope your weekend rocked as much as this song! ox

    P.S. Coca Cola can’ would be a great idea for the next election, btw.

    Love it! You have captured the insanity of living in America.

  5. I get what you’re saying but didn’t relate so much. I guess maybe it’s not so much like this in Australia, although I gather from the comments you’ve done a good job of capturing America, which is very cool. It doesn’t inspire me to live there though.

    A Coke can couldn’t do a worse job than your average politician could it? The Prime Minister we have here stabbed our last Prime Minister in the back, promised she wouldn’t do something in very clear language, and has now broken that promise. It kind of goes without saying she is the most unpopular Prime Minister in decades. Sad that she is also our first woman Prime Minister.

    Derek, you have outdone yourself. I love this song – the lyrics, the vocals, the arrangement. Once again, you have made my Monday rock!

  7. Ashley Nixon says:

    I loved the chorus and the actual soundbite you incorporated!

    I think it’s great, I really do, but I also think it says sad things about our generation…and what we’re facing. Sadly, the media is very corrupt…:/ And television is very concerned with distorting reality and unrealistic images. Everyone is really focused more on selling themselves. I hope I wasn’t way off on my interpretation! lol.

  8. Oh it’s heavy this week, my likey!

    It may be Tuesday, but it is never too late for Music Monday!

  9. It’s a mad crazy world, and your song captures it in some soundbites of your own! Love it.

  10. Myself and the 5th years listened to ‘Soundbite’ while doing questions on ‘Macbeth’… politicaian’s and withches, yip that about right…. liked this Derek, vocals v nice (says she who knows nothing mind you !!) Keep em coming Maura
