You Can’t Go Back – New Stream On Soundcloud

From the album More Protection, here’s You Can’t Go Back:

Lyrics by Gregory Howe:

Invention is a pattern undone
As one era starts
the old is broken apart
Embracing change
progress attained
Though farther resigned,
when we look behind

We can’t go back
We can’t go back
We can’t go back anymore

We can’t go back
We can’t go back
We can’t go back to time before
Cause this is the way we are heading now

Those street were lined with music and books
Now look around it’s all food and good looks
And the games we played are overpaid
So few achieve grand accolades

You can’t go back
You can’t go back
You can’t go back anymore
You can’t go back to times before

And the forest stood tall and the sea was full
Event horizon of comprehension
Now towers of steel and the automobile
Cover the fields with industry’s yield
We can’t go back anymore

Lyrics by Gregory Howe:

Just the other day my lady stared at me
In her onyx eyes I could clearly see
She was not taking sides, though she was keen to say
That I was full of pride, and I would be her prey

Do the spider. Do the spider love?
Do the spider. Do the spider love?

Tap tap tapping on the why why wire
Tap tap tapping on the why why wire
Tap tap tapping on the why why wire
Will I make it or be devoured?

With her long fine legs, she moves from side to side
And in the confined space, I feel the tension rise
She sees in my face. I feel vulnerable.
And with position placed, she moves in for the kill

So do the spider. Do the spider love?
Do the spider love?

I will be her man, and she will be my wife.
Smiling in her arms, as I am drained of life

So do the spider. Do the spider love?
Do the spider love?

Review of “More Protection” in Music Street Journal

More Protection Review by G. W. Hill

MORE PROTECTION COVER 5X5This is one of those albums where I’m sure people will disagree with it landing under progressive rock. The thing is, if you think modern Radiohead or Porcupine Tree are prog, then this is prog. A lot of it lands pretty close to the territory occupied by those acts. Still other music here leans even more into progressive rock like modern King Crimson. No matter how you categorize this, though, it’s quite an entertaining set and I like it a lot.
