Bust me Out

Listening to White Summer, this song is just meant to be sung by Keith St. John. His classic-oriental-rock-kind of melodies make the song just perfect. The Kingdom Come / Led Zep feel is drippin' all over the place. It's hard to imagine that Keith would not have been on the song, if everything had happened as planned. Since Keith was working on some other songs in the middle of 2019, I approached other singers to do White Summer. It took quite a while to find out it did not work out as I had hoped for, so in October 2019 I more or less begged Keith to do White Summer, after he had finished his other tracks for me. 


The basics of White Summer were written during my 2018 summer holiday in Portugal, which was just a very creative period, working everyday on the porch of my apartment by the beach. 'From your mouth' comes from the same sessions, just like some tracks that will see the light of day in the future on a next album or so.


Initially the progress was pretty good, with Stéphan Forté doing the guitar solo's early 2019, emphasizing the oriental feel of the song in a great way. This was the last song of the album that was was finished in November 2020. To me this is one of the better tracks of the album!


Keith wrote the lyrics of 'White Summer', and it is about a boys realizations of his inner metamorphosis as manhood awakens factions of himself through his discovery of his fated bond with woman.  At the core of all the fire between man and woman (which is seemingly ritualized through "satan's" song)... lies the ultimate peace and the ultimate light.....the "White Summer

Hey come on


What’s all these rules that I don’t need?

Shuttin’ me down

Up in the sky and out in the streets

No Party Town


Newsman says the whole world’s shakin’

And time will tell

Newsman said you gotta lock up your life

And sit in hell


I need to Bust me Out

And crush these chains

Gotta Bust me Out

Before I go insane

Somebody Bust me Out


Can’t drink at the bar or shake your hand

I got no life

Across the seas, across the land

It’s like a knife


The Government says no more rockin’

The thunder’s dead

The Government says there’s one more coffin

To fill your head


I need to Bust me Out

And crush these chains

Gotta Bust me Out

Before I go insane

Somebody Bust me Out


What they tryin’ to hand me

Too much overkill

Too many rules, too many fools

With a big fat stack of bills

Come on baby, Bust me Out a’ here

Take me to a better place and time girl

Close your eyes let’s turn out the lights


Guitar Solo: Timo Somers


I need to Bust me Out

Somebody Bust me Out

Come on little honey, let’s turn out the lights

Cause I need it tonight

Don’t wanna go insane

So let’s make it rain

Come on and take me down to the river of love

It’s time to Bust me Out

Turn out the lights

Come on baby let the good times roll right now
