Your second line sounds right, but I've never been sold on that first line. "Shine like more than a bomb you are"? What does that even mean? It seems clunky and weird. 

 

The first line almost sounds like "Shine like more than you bargained for" but that doesn't make a lot of sense either. It's hard to tell with the layered vocals.

I'm just gonna go ahead and state the obvious: Days like today make up for all the shit we put up with as GNR fans. 

FUCK YOU BOB EZRIN

One thing that I do, that my wife absolutely LOVES, is that I say "ITDONREALLYMATTA" if she ever happens to say anything close to the phrase "it doesn't matter".  Going forward, any time she says

Does anyone have any newer guesses as to the lyrics in the chorus? Even as it stands now the song is an all time favorite of mine and everyone I've ever played it for has instantly realized its potential as something special.

I said it before, and i still hear it as this:

"I got a lot more than i bargained for 
You're all alone now
You forgot about the others you were begging for 
You're all alone
So talk to the ones that you once ignored
You're all alone now
You used to be a little crazy now there's so much more 
You're all alone"

I don't like the chorus, because of all the layers. There's way too much going on as an attempt to hide that there is no great melody. Won't sound any good live or in an unplugged setting.

Way too many hay hays and uaaahhs in the verses.

I like the piano a lot though.

Perhaps this song is not for me. ;)

I love the song, and I think the melody is awesome. But I agree: there's already too many layers. Or maybe it was the quality of the recording, a proper mixing/mastering could do it more justice (or worse lol).

So I was playing with the original file and removed the center channel (and the voice). You can hear more clearly the heavily processed rhythm guitar/FX during the verses. Also the rhythm in the bridge and the riff in the chorus (yes, there's a riff going on) all sound much more clear. And everything is 100% Robin Finck. Including the solo, which is seemly integrated to the chorus riff.

After the solo, the rhythm guitar/fx is actually different and even more "scratchy". It honestly sounds awesome to me and I dont have a clue why is so fucking buried in the mix.

CD also has some great guitar parts (I found in the multitrack) that I can't hear on the album. 

Nice findings!  I emailed Brian May a few days ago but have not heard back as of yet. Would be curious on his thoughts on Atlas, at least.

Hope you get a reply. But I think he would be more careful to comment on an unreleased song after what happened with Catcher.

Yep sounds spot on to me. Thanks @Gordon Comstock for providing that snippet with cleaner vocals to help it; Axl certainly wasn't overstating it when he called them "Rough mixes"!
