Electronic track with vocals: Transbay Tube
 
I commute on one of San Francisco's subway systems, called Bay Area Rapid Transit or BART, every day to get from my apartment in San Francisco to my job in Berkeley and back. The cities are on opposite sides of the San Francisco Bay, so the train goes under the bay in a tube. At the time it was built it was the longest underwater train tube in the world. It's called the Transbay Tube, and I wrote the chorus of this song riding through it. Hope you like the song!

If you do like it, download the free album at http://somedesperateglory.bandcamp.comThe album is called Redo From Start and it is very synthpop!

Lyrics:

Transbay Tube by Carl Grace

I'm not on the surface
But I'm not underground
Encased in concrete
With a deafening sound

I'd like to talk
But I can't answer the phone
Surrounded by people
I feel so alone

Between you and me
The Transbay Tube
First I must get through
The Transbay Tube

5 atmospheres of pressure
Outside it's pitch black
But I don't worry
I just sit back

It could be night
It could be day
I will wait here
And let the iPod play

Very nice, I enjoyed it very much.

Nice to see a song made that was actually inspired/well thought about.

Enjoyed this one Carl, really cool source of inspiration :) so does this song make you think of blue then?

Nice one. Liked the melody and structure/arrangement. Listening on my MBP so can't say that much about the mixing. Keep up the good work!

Thanks, Brent. Actually, since you asked, this one is really, really red. The bass is super dark, deep red, almost brown or black and the mid-range chords are bright red. haha

I'll let you know when I have a blue song ready. ;)

Great song Carl! I've been listening to your whole album during my daily commute. This title fits on my traveling times, except that use the NYC Subway. :)

Great production! Thanks so much for the Free album man!

Peace,

Ed
