Mid Life Crisis joins Myspace



The band, Mid Life Crisis, Danny, Danny, Zev and me, have been playing together for 3 years now, or is it 4? Once every 2-3 weeks we manage to escape our respective routines and transform ourselves (bald pates, paunches and all) into lithe ass-kicking rockers about to take the world by storm.
After overcoming a few technical problems that would have been solved in a jiffy by a 12 year old we've opened a page on Myspace where you can hear a few of our recordings, read our bio and see some images: http://www.myspace.com/mlcisrael . We'll try to keep it evolving.
Over the weekend MLC spent 9 straight hours in the studio recording a new song - War Zone - that I wrote under the influence of Lebanon II. Hopefully it will be on the site soon too.
Here are the lyrics
War Zone
The lights are going out all over town
And half the population’s underground
We’re under fire and so are they
And all that’s left to do is pray

Can’t stand living in a war zone
Can’t stand living in a war zone

Their story and our story is the same
A deadly dance of death, we’re both to blame
We want what’s theirs
They want what’s ours
We have to show them who’s got the power

Can’t stand living in a war zone
Can’t stand living in a war one

A massive boom a blinding flash of light
The children scream, their faces white with fright
By Him we live by Him we die
Why doesn’t he hear us when we cry?

Can’t stand living in a war zone
Can’t stand living in a war zone

I cannot leave I cannot stay
What use is running anyway?
The die is cast what will be will be
But what about my hopes
And what about my dreams?

Can’t stand living in a war zone
Can’t stand living in a war zone

You've probably seen this- a horrible warning,no?
