Ok here's another of my favorite Priest tunes...there seems to be a few Priest fans here besides me. This song always gets my blood pumping! :rock:
It's more like the Live version than the studio version. Hope you guys like it.:icon_cool

I'm not the best lead player but the solo ain't too bad really. It's a bitch to play.

VanMan offered to put vocals on it later on....it's all yours Toast!!!! :thumbup:

Lyrics:
Up here in space
I'm looking down on you.
My lasers trace
Everything you do.

You think you've private lives
Think nothing of the kind.
There is no true escape
I'm watching all the time.

I'm made of metal
My circuits gleam.
I am perpetual
I keep the country clean.

I'm elected electric spy
I protected electric eye.

Always in focus
You can't feel my stare.
I zoom into you
You don't know I'm there.
I take a pride in probing all your secret moves
My tearless retina takes pictures that can prove.

I'm made of metal
My circuits gleam.
I am perpetual
I keep the country clean.

I'm elected electric spy
I protected electric eye.
(solo)
Electric eye, in the sky
Feel my stare, always there
's nothing you can do about it.
Develop and expose
I feed upon your every thought
And so my power grows.

I'm made of metal
My circuits gleam.
I am perpetual
I keep the country clean.
I'm elected electric spy
I protected electric eye. Repeat

I'm Protected.

Pr-otected. De-tective. E-lectric eye.

I really appreciate it folks! This song captures my personality I think. This is the music that makes me want get out of bed every day. Priest was my main influence as far back as the late 70's. Priest and Sabbath practically invented Heavy Metal.

Thanks to everyone..after listening a few more times I realize I have a few levels to tweak...the panning and levels on the solo are out of whack but thats fixable. I'm not the best sound guy in the world.

Keep a look out for VanMan's repost of this with vocals! Go Toast!!

Nice cover. The thing that always struck me about JP on that album was the huge guitar sound they got. They probably recorded several layers of guitar to get the big sound. Might be worth experimenting with to capture the studio sound vs. the live sound. Nice lead guitar work, excellent!!
