Just a song idea that never really got finished. It sounds ok but the joke of pinching the "Same as it ever Was" phrase out of Once in a Lifetime (Talking Heads) is a bit redundant and poorly implemented. The 8 vocal harmonies on the choruses are cool though and sound a little bit like a stone roses outtake.

Whilst this is hardly a rap - it is spoken word and a bit of stream of consciousness. It does dovetail quite nicely and I really like the way the "
Big city deals made over meals, to the clatter of plates and ching of tills" bounces along - the meter is a bit reminiscent of Becks "Where its at" which pleases me :D

Any how here is the Song http://www.guitars101.com/vb/attachment.php?attachmentid=11221

And here are the lyrics

Something Worth Nothing
------------------------

Life just becomes something worth nothing, something worth nothing
Life just becomes something worth nothing, something worth nothing

Too many people try to break away
Escaping from whatever come what may
Trying to grab something they can't reach
Questioning answers they did not seek

lost in a desert between the isles
in Safeway’s Morrison’s, hidden in the shelf
Finger rhythms drumming on the dashboard
Choking on petrol "I wish I was abroad"

Los Palmos and Bel Air
Lazing in the sun without a care
Drinking down cocktails on stale Ice
Taking in scenery once or twice

Back home tv's scream out loud
satellites and cable in air and ground
Mobile phones ionise the sky
And carbon monoxide cars scream by

Life just becomes something worth nothing, something worth nothing
Life just becomes something worth nothing, something worth nothing

Face hard against glass and staring in vain
At consumer products no value in the name
Branded by a need to buy
Impulse purchase - live that lie

A car that drinks more than its driver
A house that subsides on its owner
Blind and ignorant to the cost
But feed the finance till all is lost

Big city deals made over meals
To the clatter of plates and ching of tills
Money makes your world go round
But credit puts you in the ground.

What are the options that you get?
Work like a dog to earn your debt
Live on the stand and cash in hand
Or get some livestock and some land.

Life just becomes something worth nothing, something worth nothing
Life just becomes something worth nothing, something worth nothing

Same as it ever was,
Same as it ever was,
Same as it ever was,
Same as it ever was.

Hey Goport - I'm becoming a big fan of your material... really dig this a lot. I can definitely here styles of the artists you mentioned. Big beck fan, so ace's for that approach. It works great between the harmonies.
