Hi all,

New track I wrote and recorded today. Feedback most welcome, also I am struggling with which genre it is (grunge?):

MEAT ON THE BONE
(Words by Jonathan Linton, Music by Jonathan Linton)

I know you
You are type
Insatiable
Appetite
Plate’s full
To the brim
If someone’s got some
You’ll take it from him

Obsessed, you must exceed
No end to your greed

We squeeze blood from a stone
You take all the fat
Leave no meat on the bone
Always more that you can own
If you take all the fat
Leave no meat on the bone
No meat on the bone

It’s all just
Your smoke screen
Work hard
Fulfill your dreams
Smoke clears
Time to snip
Cut into the bone
And get a pink slip

Cut deep, ‘n’ make it bleed
Another billion to fill your needs

We squeeze blood from a stone
You take all the fat
Leave no meat on the bone
Always more that you can own
If you take all the fat
Leave no meat on the bone
No meat on the bone

SOLO

We squeeze blood from a stone
You take all the fat
Leave no meat on the bone
Always more that you can own
If you take all the fat
Leave no meat on the bone
No meat on the bone

Honestly, it's heavier than his usual style, but I could hear Meatloaf singing this. The lyrics, during the chorus in particular, are very Jim Steinman. Love it.

Another great song. I really love the music and vocals. Asked my metal head master son who this might remind him of (not metal in my opinion). He said Alice-n-Chains. That appears to be 2 votes (JAPOV).
