Just something I wrote.. Opinions would be great :) [04 Jan 2012|12:23pm]

[ mood | curious ]

When we were younger

We thought we knew it all

Live fast, die hard, stay young

We were wrong

We thought we had the world in our fingers

Thought nothing could touch us

Nothing could harm us

Confusion in our heads and in our hearts

This song goes to

All of you who thought you knew it better

Than anyone had ever known

Before

This song is for all the kids

Who've lost themselves to the cruel hard world

Who will never find their way back home

This is for the young ones

This is their song

We had the choices

Blurring the right and wrong

Taking the fast way, always the hard way

To get to where we had to go

We thought we knew

Thought we had it figured out

Our needs, bad deeds, small fees

Creating worlds to fall apart

This song goes to

All of you who thought you knew it better

Than anyone had ever known

Before

This song is for all the kids

Who've lost themselves to the cruel hard world

Already written off, forever gone

Mistakes are made

And deals will break

As we look up to the stars

Searching for who we are

It ends the same

This dangerous game

As we wish upon stars

We search for who we are

This song goes to

All of you who thought you knew it better

Than anyone had ever known

Before

This song is for all the kids

Who've lost themselves to the cruel hard world

Who will never find their way back home

Already written off, forever gone

This is for the young ones

This is your song..

This Part of Me [11 Apr 2010|12:22am]

youshouldstop
Let's see... I like writing songs, so watch me post to this a million gazillion times :) even if nobody ever responds or comments. Which is totally A-Okay. I just like posting them anyway, it's fun. :D

*If you are a hollywood person looking for the next big song and try stealing my lyrics I WILL take you to court, so don't even try it*

You act like you don't know,
But I see that you do.
Another argument has started and I'm through.
I'm done with it all, all your words and your absences
You've hurt me enough and I'm not taking it

So long, or farewell, as they say,
No more, goodbye, I won't be treated this way

CHORUS:
I don't have to take this, I don't wanna be this.
This part of me has died.
You can go, you can beg, it doesn't matter,
This part of me has cried.
My heart was broken, with each word you have spoken,
It's over, This Part of Me is over

Now you pretend like you're oh so surprised,
But probably not as much as I was when I saw her with my own eyes.
Her hooker make-up, and obnoxious platinum hair,
You keep telling me that you are so sorry,
Though not nearly as much as me when I met your Barbie.

So long, or farewell, as they say,
You cheated and lied, you can't treat me this way

CHORUS repeat :)

Don't. Just stop. I can't take anymore.
I've taught myself to move on,
And now baby, I'm gone.

When your with her I hope I'm on your mind,
When she leaves you I hope finally see,
That you made a major mistake when you set me free.

Thanks for listening, er...reading.
Peace, Love, & Chocolate. Those are the true moneymakers you know.

Writhe [05 Apr 2009|01:14pm]

jess_williams
{Ignore the abbreviations in the parenthesis--they are my own notes for if I ever get this recorded}

I remember…
when I was just a little girl…
every year, I felt ten years older than I was becoming

And I remember…
while I was growing up…
the stale alienation that settled around me
the feeling of abnormality burning my rotting flesh
the words spoken so…freely

(whisper)
why do you exist?
why do you exist?

I remember the constant battle with an imaginary god
The explosion of weakness across the pages of my façade
The fear, the illness, the ignored cries for help

I remember her ignorance to my pain
The day I finally, finally, went insane…

(whisper)
My soul wasted away with my sympathy…

I remember his voice
his eyes
the acidic burn of his fingers

I remember the games
Not caring about my words
And I remember her refusal to see what existed before her

(whisper)
What have you done to me?

Present day…
I can still feel the traces of pain
The weighing illness of the emotions I’ve slain…

I can hear my subconscious taunting my needs
my desire to live, and breathe, and fuck

I feel like a patriarch
Exhausted
Plagued by memories of injustice

(strained, rough tone)
No
Don’t touch me
Please!
No
Don’t leave me…

I can feel your sins
The destruction deep within
Raped by the fingers of self deception
Clawing wildly at the spreading infection
Reborn…
Conformed…

The last time I surrendered to you
you broke off the piece of me still alive…
What do you want from me?
I’ve already fucking died
And cried
And lied
Locked up the fresh agony, deep, deep inside…

(CK:)
She disappears into a black hole of censorship…

(JW:)
My body is a war zone
I’ve brainwashed the last of my innocence
Corrupted my soul
Clung tight, so tight, God, please, make me whole…

(whisper)
Your suffering ignites the passion within me….


I need something to remind me of my sadistic nature
I need a body to destroy
A soul to infect
A heart to stomp on and dissect
I need to know you’re living for me
To hear you screaming my name
The desperate plea for mercy
For more
For salvation….


(Instrumental)

Baby…
Baby come on…
I’m sorry…
Get up…open your eyes…
Stop it, I love you, get up…

Murderer…MURDERER!!

NO! DON’T TOUCH ME!
No…

(deep breathing) (O.M.
)

(Instrumental)

(whisper)
No one has to know…
No one…needs…to know…

(CK’s Wicked Laugh)

Simple As Water [16 Feb 2009|05:14am]

jess_williams
(Verse 1)

You refuse to see that no one but yourself is to blame
Your perception of the situation drives me insane
Who are you to tell me I have no life to destroy?
Guess it proves that to you I'm no more than a toy

(Chorus)

Set me free
What's the worst I can do?
I'm not inclined to love you this is all just too soon
Set me free
from the dreams of slaughter
No more questions anymore cause we're simple as water

(Verse 2)

You've denied your last chance for redemption
Made a fool of yourself because you like the attention
You don't listen to a damn word I say
I'm done helping you if all you'll do is push me away

(Chorus)

(Bridge)

You think you're the Queen of the world
The last of your lies have unfurled
You've lost your chance for happiness again
You've cheated you've lied
I won't help you this time
You said you'd change, i'm tired of asking when

(Chorus x2)

Hi--I'm new here, and I've been doing some songwriting for a bit now. But I'm never completely comfortable with doing it, because I think half of my stuff sounds ridiculous. Can anyone provide any tips for structuring lyrics? I'd appreciate it very much.

The Melodies of Nature [11 Feb 2009|06:44pm]

lessthandead369
There are fields of white
Spreading all around me
There is bright blue sky
Far as the eye can see

A million miles from the earth
the eagle's call is ringing
Soaring over land and sea
Can you hear him singing?

The melodies of nature
Are found everywhere
In bird songs and sun rays
Over yonder, here and there

In the mountains of Canada
Every animal is free
The elk and the wildcat
Are here for everyone to see

A hundred from mainland
The ocean's treasure seeking
Racing through the sea
Can you see him leaping

The melodies of nature
Are found everywhere
In bird songs and sun rays
Over yonder, here and there
Over yonder, here and there

There's a melody in life [11 Feb 2009|06:34pm]

lessthandead369
There's a song in the trees
In the bird's and bees
There's a melody in life
And the restless seas

There's a song in the wind
In the sky and the streams
There's a melody in life
And the bright sun beams

There's a song in the sand
In the snow and the sleets
There's a melody in life
And the dusty streets

There's a song in the moon
In the stars and the night
There's a melody in life
And the dark twilight

There's a song in silence
In tears of joy and pain
There's a melody in life
And the April rain

There's a in the world
Just for me and for you
There's a melody in life
And everything you do

There's a song in my heart
From up high and down low
There's a melody in life
Found everywhere you go

When I Met You [26 Sep 2008|06:06pm]

vampedvixen
Bad times surrounded me when I met you
People hurt who they could and always lied
You opened my eyes to a world brand new
Where hope was alive, and evil denied
A place where I would never have to hide
You helped me to stop this ongoing war
I've never been in love like this before

Our friendship bloomed from out of the blue
We stood strong there by each other's side
When many others would have said adieu
I learned that I could trust and could confide
Because you have never cast me aside
I learned to step out from behind this door
I've never been in love like this before

As the laughter and my smile both grew
The bitterness I felt towards the world died
After much heartbreak I knew what to do
I could take the pain and anger in stride
And forget about the tears I had cried
You gave me back myself and so much more
I've never been in love like this before

If there is one thing I know to be true
You've been there as my hero, and my guide
Words are inadequate but thank you
For helping me find my hope and my pride
Hope I'm with you till the end of this ride
I used to think good guys were only lore
I've never been in love like this before

A song, if I may... [15 Sep 2008|03:25pm]

ichimaru_sama

My most recent song, currently without an existing title, that I would really like some feedback on. That includes a title, if something comes to mind that you would like to suggest. Thank you very much. ^_^

[Verse 1]
I was walking home - all alone - feel the gravity of heartbreak
You were sitting there - on the swings - just kicking the concrete
And I looked in your eyes and I saw - my reflection - all the lies

[Bridge]
Are you a god of the concrete skies?
Can you see the gloom invading my life?
Is there something I can do?
You'll tell me, won't you?

[repeat chorus]

[Verse 2]
I was walking home - now with you - and you refuse to let me go
A closer look and - I can tell - everything I thought was wrong
You are not a god but a small - small child - at heart

[Alt-Bridge 1]
Are you following the concrete skies?
Can you see the gloom invading my life?
Is there something I can do?
You'll tell me, won't you?

[repeat Chorus]

[Verse 3]
When I made it home - you were there - and you asked me if you could stay
Looking in your eyes - I can tell - that I was wrong and you're no child
You look at the sky - not afraid - not aware

While I was staring at the gloom in the skies
You were staring at the gloom in my eyes
Look down, you say, holding on to me
And looking in your eyes I see myself
Looking in your eyes I see myself
And I kinda like the me I see

[Alt-Bridge 2]
Are you fighting the concrete skies?
Can you erase the gloom invading my life?
Is there something you can do?
You won't leave me, will you?

[repeat chorus]

[ mood | creative ]

Dreams have a way of getting lost
Along the timelines that we cross
Fruitless wishes may hope for more
But this ship will always crash ashore

Chorus:
I placed my faith
In what I thought was true
Before I even really knew you
I think I learned my lesson
But this pain still won't lessen

Sun shone brightly, the sails were set
How much would go wrong after we met?
We were explorers of the sea and shore
All those places that we can't go anymore
I saw them all with you
I saw them all with you
The beaches of San Tripoli
Your hand across my skin so slowly
That smile that reminded me of home
And showed me I wasn't alone
I saw them all with you

Chorus

Clouds in the sky turned white to gray
Another ship going down in the same way
I pulled the lines steady and straight
But you had already accepted our fate
Our words got lost in the angry storm
But don't you remember sands so warm
And a sky so blue
I saw it all with you
I thought I saw it all with you
(whisper: Don't tell me you're one of them too)

Chorus

(Speaking: Captain, there's been a mutiny on deck.
We're taking on water and heading inland.)

Yes, folks, my first ever live video footage available for viewing at www.myspace.com/eyelidsofdawn. From there you can sign up for the e-newsletter so you won't miss out on a thing. It will be like the spam you always look forward to, like a puppy or a chocolate chip cookie clogging your inbox, only messier and slightly less soothing.

Lyrics to the second song-- "Vow of Silence"(a brand new one)-- behind the cut.

Title suggestions welcomed...

I said, "Maybe now is not the best time to meet you."
She said, "Keep believing in your being till thoughts are gone.
Those thoughts that bring you down they cannot teach you.
This is only temporary depression."

A Scribe Or A Carpenter [19 Apr 2007|10:39am]

dyakobi

So now and then..

A fountain pen is mightier than a wooden sword,

A call for help is better left ignored

A strange elixir better left un-poured?...........

 

 

My remedy, my remedy,

What has this strange elixir done to me?

On the wall in the hall

There was a shadow standing next to me.

 

Words were enticingly spoken

In a foreign tongue.

All that was told was then cast into stone

And buried to later be found.

 

Forlorn! 

Forlorn and torn from his mother’s care.

Stillborn!

Was he a scribe or a carpenter?

 

Did he gestate while sedated

On momma’s pills?

Despite all the chills, it’s the danger that thrills her

And she will be back there someday.

 

My remedy, my remedy

What has this strange elixir done to me?

On the wall in the hall

There crawled a spider and a centipede.

 

Words were inscribed incoherent

With a fountain pen.

And all that was written was matched unmistakably

Now just as if it was then.

 

 

So now and then..

A fountain pen is mightier than a wooden sword,

A call for help is better left ignored

A strange elixir better left un-poured?

I could tell you all of the reasons why, but it would absolutely kill you.  Kill me?  It's been done before, darling.  A spin cycle: sterilize, rinse, repeat, dry until the skin peels off the bones and lungs are left in a cage gasping for something to keep them alive through the days when the light never reaches the horizon.

Maybe someday we will know the meanings for all these feelings but for now we just feel.

I am a robot.  A robot who can love, cry, rage among the other machines, tears rusting their metal gears.  Programmed like a human but built like a machine.  

I am afraid to fit in.  I hate their smiles.  I hate their laughter.  How can they live so carelessly?

Why can't I?

I live a lifetime in a day.  Every sunrise I am born and by sunset I'm covered with scars.  She can't function without an audience.  Outside she's gleaming, sun soaked skin, inside she's cracked porcelain.

The lion's mane crowns the horizon, rips and tears where he has clawed.  they flaw the sky.  It turns from blue to gold and when i breathe in the dusk i will remember you.

We will escape the machines and run to a place where the trees hover like monsters silhoutted against a bruised sky.

---

i prefer to write songs like this, and not the normal, stanza rhyming way.  tell me what you think please!!
