'The Greys' is the first single from the upcoming electronic pop Cosmic Boxer album (available August 2012). The video is intended to be thought-provoking and explores the Faustian concept of "selling your soul" in return for fame and riches.

If you enjoy the song, I would be extremely grateful if you share it on Facebook, Twitter, forums, blogs, etc. or at least with one other person. Spread the word, Cosmic Boxer is here and wants his gold record! (But blood oaths are not my style.)

The song is available for free download (320kbps mp3) - cosmicboxer.com

Cosmic Boxer is a 100% independent solo project with no record label, no promotion team, no manager, etc. Expect the fantastic 2nd single from the album to be released at the end of July.

lyrics:

two men in suits entered my life
told me to write this song
gave me a deadline
they choose every word i rhyme
that's fine

never any other way
never any other way
the greys, the greys, the greys
there was never any other way
never any other way
the greys, the greys, the greys

so far the joys have left me sick inside
i toe the line because my hands are tied
and they act so polite
pull the wool over my eyes
it's alright
i cannot change my mind

never any other way
never any other way
the greys, the greys, the greys
there was never any other way
never any other way
the greys, the greys, the greys
the greys, the greys, the greys
the greys, the greys, the greys

* the two men at the start are walking backwards
* the video contains several references to the classic Brian de Palma film 'Phantom of the Paradise' (1974).
* i'm surprised anyone bothered to read this far down, so well done...
