    "Tin Man" starts out 'normally enough': acoustic guitar with vocals like bad Neil Young (slightly cheesy synthy stuff in background)...then, it moves somewhere quite distantly "electronic" and never quite makes it back. Its gotten some play on 89.5 FM WPKN, Bridgeport CT, USA, on Rod Richardson's show "Radio Nothing", so that's a huge honor. Its been described as "...Nick Drake meets Neil Young" drunk...on a bad day
    ha ha...


    "Tin-Man" LYRICS (lyrics, music, recording by I.P.B'Racz)

    Tin-man walks down the road gazing up at the starlight sky.
    A star that he once called his own is now a twinkle in someone else's eye.


    He stops by a moonlit rose-garden, and tries to remember the sweetness.
    Tears roll down his rusty cheeks when all he smells is emptiness.


    What is a rose to Tin-Man? Its a place-holder of memories.
    He opens the door in his chest, and places it in a nest of sleeping bees.


    Tin-Man keeps on walking hoping the sun will never rise
    for once the sun has reclaimed the sky, he'll only see
    his own desolation...his own desolation


    [...so Tin Man runs from the sun, he keeps on moving north
    because he knows if he thaws, he'll feel again
    ...]

    [...that way he'll never have to feel...]

    [...a star that he once called his own, is now so far away...]

    [...so far...]

    Knowing the sweet scent of a rose in the noon-day sun...
    knowing the sweet scent of a rose...
    in the noon-day sun...


    [...so far away...]
