Story behind the song
Mellosonic sent me a great backing track with a very smooth jazzy blend of sound. This immediately inspired me to write a song about the recent global financial crisis. Ever felt like a small cog in a huge wheel? Doesn't matter what we do, we are all just part of a bigger machine and simply here to Keep the Wheels in Motion. Always an honor and privilege to work with Mellosonic, aka Chris J. Brown.
Lyrics
Keep The Wheels In Motion (Keep the wheels in motion, ah-ha, do it) A place to tick the box, It turns and then it locks, There is no key for any solitary notions. A profile on my screen, Inside this mean machine, Ain't got no power, I just keep the wheels in motion. I never trust the phone, I'm in the small print zone, A signed up member for some dotted line devotion. There's nothing in my mind That can't be re-defined, Ain't got no power, I just keep the wheels in motion. I hear synthetic lines And words that always shine, There is a formula for every emotion. A manufactured dream, Part of a sales regime, Ain't got no power, I just keep the wheels in motion. It slips right through my hands, This money made of sand, Here comes a wave of paper deeper than the ocean. Big bubbles flying high, Like zeros in the sky, Ain't got no power, I just keep the wheels in motion. So many busy feet, They walk a one-way street, Can't hear the voice of reason over this commotion. There are no shades of gray, They only cause delay, Ain't got no power, I just keep the wheels in motion. (Keep the wheels in motion) Got to keep the wheels in motion. (Keep the wheels in motion) Got to keep the wheels in motion. (Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do) Ain't got no power, I just keep the wheels in motion. (Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do) Keep the wheels in motion. © 2009 Rodrica Rudge Music
