It's been a while since I posted anything here on Recording Project, about 5 years.

What follows is a collaboration idea that needs music. I'll post the lyrics first, and then the lyrics with production notes follow. If you want a go at the music part, then by all means, collaborate to your heart's desire. I'm just looking for some music as my studio is in the rebuilding stages. I may add some of my own tracks later, but it is, what it is at this point. Feedback is appreciated and if it's in the wrong forum, well, it's been a while since I've been here.

I'd really like the opportunity to cash in some favors here in some studios with some fine gear, to sing this tune after music is put upon it.

I will be able to do some scratch vocal tracks as the song matures, but for now, about all I could do is arrange some MIDI samples around it and maybe I will do that.

I'm looking for some feedback on form and structure and genre implications, as well as some suggestions as to who it 'might' sound like, band or artist.
