The lyrics:


All The Best People
                       
   all the best
 people have gone home
   when i go
 i'll not return, oh no
well i guess, I'm next, the hereafter-show
  all the best people have gone home

   a change of
 scenery doesn't hurt
   it's all about,
perspective makes things work (work it out)
like a jealous wind, where am i to begin?
a change of scenery doesn't hurt

i've made mistakes, one made me think twice
should i die today, would tomorrow be alright?

all the best people have gone home

  there's no need
to enter like a thief
   show me your
hunger, show me your greed
take some more, take anything you want from me
  there's no need for you to enter like a thief

i‘ve made mistakes, one made me think twice
if i die today will tomorrow be alright?
it's a quiet place, in death as in life
would it be okay if i turn out the lights?

all the best people have gone home

It's either this or that, then again it might be the other. 

I can promise you a future of slow decline.

And there you have it.

@rightly,
Its good for me. I like the drums and tinkling piano. 
I like the quirky arrangement and production which suits the lyrics.
And topped of with your unique vocals.
Has a relaxed mesmerising quality to it.

Hi, like the EP tone, and some of the 'crunch' chords work very well. Nice arrangement, I think I've said before some of your arrangements are heading towards Captain Beefheart's Magic band. They used more guitars but created this sort of 'alternative' soundscape. The vocals evocative of Lou Reed and there are lines of the lyric that Bowie could have written.

Nice one!

Cheers
Jamie

Hola @rightly
It is a slow melody that highlights the importance of the lyrics.
I like this style
everything seems to melt sometimes
I like this phrase

Listening to your material is like moving into an alternative universe where all the reference points have disappeared. The listener has to trust that you know what you're doing and it all makes sense internally. It works for me but not for everyone I would guess. I love the originality and imagination on show here. Great stuff once again.

Your lyrics are for me, always the highlight of your productions and this is no exception.  I can't help wonder how this would sound with one or two guitars.  I believe that they would lift this song to the next level, adding greater texture to your composition.

Love the ride. Love the lyrics. The production keeps it all sweepingly interesting.

Hi mora.
Your comments are often spot on.
I like your perspective.
It's either this or that, then again it might be the other.
