Do or die (Live acoustic)

I cant seem to play this unless I do it live….

That is something new to me…

Used to be the other way around….

This is called “Do or die”…

Do or Die
(words and music by Tharek Mokbul)
Do or die, that’s what Everyone here is told….
Maybe that’s, not what, all of our lives should hold…
Plant it and let it live for a day…
Blind it and let it pay for the rain….
Ours is not to reason why…

Daily grind, again…
Monday morning ends…
Not a day, passed by, when our hunger lends Peace to a better time in our lives….
Wealth to another part of this trial…..
Ours is not to reason why…..

Never speak… You’re told, till the day we behold…..
Paint it on, brave faced, till the tears fade it all…..
Smiles now become betrayed by their eyes….
Souls forever hidden by lies….
Ours is not to reason why…..

Close your eyes…
Dont look…
Maybe it’s gone away…..
Stand up straight…
Head up…
Quickest way to go astray….
Hide all you have to give in the ground…..
Living life under a shroud…
Ours is not to reason why…..

Do or die, that’s what Everyone here is told….
Maybe that’s, not what, all of our lives should hold…
Plant it and let it live for a day…
Blind it and let it pay for the rain….
Ours is not to reason why…

Daily grind, again…
Monday morning ends…
Not a day, passed by, when our hunger lends Peace to a better time in our lives….
Wealth to another part of this trial…..
Ours is not to reason why…..

How do you do your recording? Do you have separate mics for the vocals and guitar? I’d love to know since it sounds so good (I’m always looking for good ideas in an effort to make my music sound better).

Just a fantastic use of “ours is not to reason why.” Great guitarwork and chord progression as always… If you don’t come away from this song thinking hard, then there must be something wrong with you.

I have a few songs like that, where I just can’t play the parts well separately. This set of live/acoustic songs is really nice!
