I remember that

That's exactly what it was like working for CPS.

Perfect understatement

Love the pitch of the song. It has a gentle sense of looming oblivion, greeted with a soft smile and dutiful work ethic, all clothed in a slightly (and deliberately) weakened, tremulous voice. I know this because in his other songs he takes on a full on Dylanesque jollity which can belt out some true angst and humour with a far sharper, accusatory tone to it. I hope he goes very far indeed- other songs are excellent. See for example

Perfectly stated and pitched, thank you!

Thanks again!

Sounds lovely, but I think my sound would have a little more anger behind it, lol. Maybe death metal :)
