The Song/Poem/Writing Thread

Recommended Posts

Right, these next two songs fit into the concept of a load of songs I've been working on lately...the first one I imagine as an acoustic ditty that acts as the starting point for the 'album', you could say, while the second one is found at the end and is meant as a contrast to the first one, to show that there is no peace in the world, in the end.

 

The World at Peace

 

Standing in the open doorway

Scent of roses in the wind

Seems so peaceful around here...

 

Painted a picture

Of the world you envisioned

And this is what I see...

 

Our world is at peace

So come stand beside me

Hold my hands

And embrace this joy

Of a world at peace...

 

The World At War

 

Explosions...

Scream through the night

Always find their way to you

Can't hide from it

This inevitable chaos

Of a world at war!

 

*chorus*

This world is at war

So shield your eyes

Don't stare into the flames

Lest they consume you...

(repeat)

 

Life...

Thrown away so carelessly

Impossible to comprehend

This sheer scale of death

Going on around me

Don't wish to join them...

 

*short solo*

 

Tossing and turning

Thoughts of fire and brimstone

At my mind's forefront

Lost my friends

Into the maelstrom of war...

 

*chorus*

 

Pale faces and black clothes

Lining the streets

Behind the corpses of the fallen

Dying for some pointless cause

In a world miles away from mine

Don't want to be a part of that world

But there is no escape for me

No escape for any of us

Because these are the rules

Of a world at war!

 

*harmonised guitar solo*

 

*chorus*

 

Our world is at war

Arming the troops

And sending them

Into the unknown

Won't see them again

But I accept this world

Because I was born into this

And have to live through it...

Forget.

 

I see you in my dreams

But I know it’s not right

I lay awake

Thinking every night

But I made the same mistake again

And said the wrong things

So why do I keep believing

That it’s not what it seems?

 

Oh, I tried to tell you everything

But it never came out

The truth was hard to admit

Yet I said it loud

The world heard my secret

And disagreed with me

But I kept my head high

Screaming from the trees

 

It all just meant nothing

Every single detail

It was all just a lie

I made the fail

But I keep seeing your face

Every night in my dreams

And I think I know you

But you don’t know what it means

 

Yeah, I can’t forget the things we did

And compliments we shared

I tried my hardest to stay away

From those rumours that were flared

But try as I might it never worked

I always got it wrong

The blame was on me

And it’s all in this song

 

-instrumental-

 

And I just can’t forget

It replays in my head

Everything we did

And everything we said

 

But try as I might it never worked

I always got it wrong

The blame was on me

And it’s all in this song

50,000 Sins

 

Far cry from redemption

But it doesn't faze him

He'll keep going on and on

Sucking this world dry of life

Leaving sorrow in his wake...

 

*chorus*

No hope left for him

With his 50,000 sins

Intending to add you to them...

 

See him coming for miles

No way to escape from him

No way to fight it

As he comes through

Wrecking everything before him...

 

*chorus*

 

50,000 and rising

Some lost count years back

Yet he keeps adding to the list

And has you in his sights

So prepare yourself

For the fight of your life...

 

*chorus to end*

 

Meh.

Night Lights

 

 

Looking at the lights, Checking out the night

And I'm ready for a fight

Theres nothing wrong

But I'm not getting along

I'm not thinking anything right

 

And when the sorrow comes in

I can see clearly again

For a little moment, One small moment

I see a glimpse of life

 

Even the pain couldn't stop myself again

And when I wander along peacefully

In comes the barging rain

 

And all I get is hatred through words

And All I see is this dying world

 

Maybe for one time I won't care

Find myself living life the way I want it

Any where out there

Nothing can't seem to keep me happy

It's all so temporary

It's like I'm holding a ball and chain

I'm always strapped to some sort of pain

 

Ain't a thing now that I can change

There isn't anything at all that I can change

And when comes the time I find myself

Doing something right

I'll change right away

our get-away car sits on the driveway

and reminds us how far we've come

and what we've got away with

well the imprint on the grass by my side

is as close as we're going to get

for a while at least

 

the discouraging pages we tore out

to keep the books as clean as we could

are inspiring the gutters quite effectively

well i'm uninspired and torn apart

with exactly as many memories left

as when i first started, only without you

 

i left clues, i'm convinced, i told you

wear these shoes and we'll dance

because i can't resist the way you walked in

and glared right at me

i can't resist you, so let's get away

we'll get away with it,

without a doubt.

Erm... This is random...

But here we go;;

 

I stand over you again.

My angers taking over again.

The split alcohol all over the floor

To the match in my hand.

All my broken clocks

And forget me not's.

I held you close

Not long ago

You were my lifeline

Now You Pissed Me Off

I found out about her

And all the lies you told

My heart you had broken

Watching the lies unfold.

Now my foots on your chest

I'm trying to break you.

Just so you feel

And inch of the pain

It took to love again.

It took to trust again

It took to loose again.

 

Why is my heart shattering again?

Errr Comment, maybe send me a message? taaa x

Standings

 

The day is cracking

The ground is much too strong

And it appears that the very soil

Seems to be very wrong

Well it seems your person

Has fallen and left

All my worries for you

Are now gone with the wind

And theres nothing now

To make me think again

Because my sustain is too great

And I'm convinced I don't need a friend

I can destroy your standing

And I can trip over the rocks

So why don't you lay some more down

While your confusion grows a frown

 

Theres nothing here you can use

Theres nothing here at all

I want you to leave so smoothly

And I don't want to see you fall

And Christianity offends me, 'swhy I wrote it.

 

but she didnt write a poem about killing people who are offended by christianity.

pretty much any bashing of religion/race/sexuality etc.. should be left off the forums.

That's not the point.

The book you meantioned isn't on this thread.

And neither should there be poems about killing people of ANY religion.

If you wanna post things like that I would sugest going to like an anti-christian forum or somethin.

I've had a must-write period for a couple of days. This is what I've written today, wanna comment?

 

Do you see me when you look at me?

Do you know me when you see me?

Do you hear me when I talk?

 

Just because I'm there and you look at me

Doesn't necissarily mean that you see me,

Just beacuse you see me, doesn't mean you know me

And, just because I talk does not mean that you hear me

 

Nothing points to the fact

That you love me or notice me

 

But I've seen you

And I've known you

I've even heard you

 

But what does any of that mean in life

If you can't see me?

 

----------

 

 

A picture of you would be amazing

To hear your voice would be breathtaking

I haven't seen you for eight years

And that you're never coming back is my only fear

I remember your smile

It was holy and devine

When I close my eyes

I see your face in my mind

But I don't know If it's real

The way that I right now feel

Love or hatred

I just can't tell

Becasue this life just feels like hell

Living without you hear

I'm swimming in tears

Come back and return to me

That would be the only way to set my pain free

You my dear

Is my only fear

alone?

all these years and we're still on our own

secrets and hiding never meant so much,

you hide and i'll seek.

i'll find you by that old rocking chair,

as it has been for always, still there

the creak of its bones speak louder than words;

the speech of young love is better misheard

 

yesterday ?

i've heard it's been abandoned after today

with the drama that rose up and flew off,

without permission or regard.

it found us and we fought half-heartedly

you gave in and it stopped and laughed at me;

"poor child" said the dream and crept away,

"can't convince nobody these days"

 

memories ?

if i recall they've best forgotten and tired

just like the people that own them,

so let's bury them at sunset.

but they'll jump when we least expect it;

they'll pounce when we most regret it

i'd rather be left in pieces in peace,

but choices mean nothing to fools.
