Solar power may not be THE answer, but it's definitely one answer.

This was the first piece I wrote using a good virtual electric guitar.

It's really hard to rock without electric guitar. For the longest time, virtual guitars were almost completely unusable.

But now, there are several excellent choices available, and I am happy.

The song was finished in its original form when Bill and Denny joined the project

Bill composed a new bass part, Denny played the some of the guitar parts as written, and composed some additional vocal, guitar and keyboard parts


It's the energy
That's streamin from the sun

It's the power
Bringin life to every one

We face the grim reality
Of shortage and uncertainty
The answer we can clearly see
Is light
Bright white light

Yes it's clean
And it's free
And it's pouring out abundantly
Ready to be used today

By the engineers
With their skill and creativity
To brighten and enlighten
The way

It's a miracle
A puzzle and a prize

It's a dream
Unfolding right before our eyes

The promise of humanity
Accomplished optimistically
And all we need
To set us free
Is light
Bright white light

So ignore the predictions
Of doom and disaster
It's all just a game
That we're able to master

As we race toward the future
It's shining and bright
With light
Bright white light
