Like an eagle in a cage somewhere, clipped wings by his sides
You can read the secret dreams of flight that soar behind his eyes
He may stay a while and love you, let you feed him from your hand
Ah, but leave the cage door open, you'll find the eagle's spirit strong
I wrote this recently for one of the most amazing people in my life. She has long suffered with autism and muscular dystrophy, and has faced many years of intolerant and judgmental people not bothering to get to know her and only considering how she looks. To me, she is stunning...
Not the best song lyrics I've ever written but still I'm posting them.
Throw it away,
All your dreams,
They're worthless, they say.
They threw me out,
Tossed me about,
Pulled my life from me.
All me hope drained away,
In a secret,
They put you down.
Stand up, that's what we're...
You paint on a smile,
You wear a mask,
To hide the cracks and the pain,
So people don't ask.
Only your eyes,
Truly give you away,
The things you hide,
To get through the day.
Look in the mirror,
What do you see?
A handful of demons,
With faces of glee.
Torturing your soul...
after I was dumped, used, cheated in a relationship... I love music and writing music about my love life is the only way to help me express how I feel and maybe get over it.. But my sister said to me it's really not worth it writing songs about someone who is undeserving..
and i find myself not so much talking to the voices in my head but wondering at them, if in some other reality they are living beings like myself with heart and soul and lungs to breathe and dreams to breathe to life. I find myself wondering if they ever wonder about me from...
and crumble the page
she's gone now so shouldn't i erase?
How i feel inside?
Take apart what makes up my heart and cast it aside?
Do the feelings i have mean anything at all?
the words i know have become lame, replaced with a sole name
calling, hoping within' an instance
Do you see my smile?
The one that I wear everyday
The one that says I'm okay
But am I?
Do you hear me laughing
At your lamest jokes
And silly antics
But is it for real?
Or is it fake?
Is it a mask I wear
To avoid the questions?
Or a mask that I wear
To hide my emotions?
And neither are you
But we are ourselves
And you're with me right now
And I think id like that
At least for a little bit
I cannot promise you eternity
Because how can we have the rain without the heat on that unbearable day
And how can we be us
A little prince was born into this world with dreams and goals that burned inside him with a passionate fire. When he stepped outside his castle walls of stone for the first he noticed the poverty and sadness that surrounded him and, afraid of the world, retreated back into his...
a cage of damaged docile conundrums.
Rampantly sifting through body heat, with a strong debris of painful feeling.
It sweeps me into bed, and flaunts the need and wish for ever lasting sleep.
What can I do, now that this feeling is here? Do I nurture this inner beast of heated...
for GG Allin and his impact on my town. He was arrested here (Dino was as well for indecent exposure) for disorderly conduct and the place he played at closed down and never recovered. He is a legend and we love him here, except for some skater punks from back in the day lol...
We are never gonna fit in. Our puzzle pieces don't go together. Even though it was supposed to be forever.
But how could I tell you no?
All this time, we never let go.
If I don't leave now, I'll break.
Because for me, you're every breath I take.
Our past is too much to...
I now cannot sleep unless you are there to hold,
I now cannot dream of silver or of gold,
I wait for my dreams to fold as they crash into every one else I know,
I grow tired I grow so old, for all of this you never show
Hidden away like a shadow of love, these are the...
wounded I might as well be wounded
Crawl off into a forest
If I'm gonna feel alone I might as well be alone
Fall off the face of the Earth
Canyons echo even at the drop of a pin
Rather exclusively for voids hear no distinction...
Let them aim well
and you aim higher and
in the tree tops, and watch
Are you sure you have
what it takes?
Learn from the bombings and
snipes, but also learn from the
that isn't peace or
I know that you and the bottle are buddies since way back when
you say that whiskey stood by you, when you couldn't find a friend
but sweetheart, I can't help but worry
you need it more each passing day
and when you crawl inside the bottle
the best of you just crawls away
but it is writing~
I'm tired of waiting
My patience wears thin
Your eyes, do they work?
I can see the innocence you hide
I can see the pain you can't leave
You've always put others before me.
But love, you'll always be my favorite
So I'll continue to wait for you
I'm high on...
You stole my heart,
And turned around;
A painful taste,
of positioned lace,
To be erased;
Picked up a mask,
And wore it well,
A broken case,
Now go to hell;
A dance of love,
You turned it on,
Now flip the switch,
Now that you're gone;
A fruitful dream,
.Kind of silly, but wanted to share with someone..
All this pain in my chest is killing me slowly, slowly.
All the promises I've made, I couldn't keep - tears
did not let me.
How you stand by my side is unreal and kind of silly.
Go away love, just go away...
Be happy like...
Going to pour myself another drink
Anything that’ll to help make me sleep
See it’s not my dreams that haunt
But it’s how far they’re out of reach
So I sit by the window
Watch the world go by
Pretend it’s not getting to me
Tell myself another lie
“It’s alright, it...
Beauty is all that I've left to live for
Love has left me wanting more
And my soul is singing its own score
Walking to your beat, I'm bored
My symphony still outshines yours
This silence shakes me to the core
I'm tired of waiting for an encore
Life is organic, not a...
tears that I can't hide...
I'm as cold as ice inside this prison, this darkness that you gave to me.
You hold the rope taunt, but it wraps around my soul- squeezing it, warping me into a demon that l don't know. The pain is real, the only thing I need. It feeds the evil that...
I didn't say that I was broken
Or that I was prone to bleed.
I'm standing in a new world.
If id listened to myself there'd be no need.
You'd be by my side.
In some paradox you'd be by my side.
I know that you are safe for me.
I thought id lost...
One man's drink is another man's poison...that's true of women, too...she's anxious to get you, I can't wait to get rid of you...I say, more power to her! and I hope she's got a sense of humor...when she finds out she didn't steal a husband...she just won herself a part-time...
VERSE 1I have faced each day with the blade,Found no answers at all,I hold on until the end,But slowly it gets colder,Each night draws in my tears.VERSE 2You say not to run away,Yet you have left over and over again,Letting my light go,Fading away my childhood,Where has my...
another day by the grave,
Six feet down the broken cannot be saved,
When all is said and done,
We gotta sacrafice our paradise for oblivion,
One more day till the other side,
No time to waste on the stronger ones,
Tonight we have to bring it down,
Who knows tonight could be...
flick me on and off
somethings i can not hide
we cant erase our lives
all our darkness and all our lies
i wish i could say i tried
I'm hollering at these walls
wishing they were you
so much anger you refuse to listen to
i scream, my scream to hide , to hide your laughs
Take a step back,
Look at your life,
Put it in perspective,
See what it's worth.
Through the good and bad times,
You said you'd be there,
But now you're gone, It just aint fair.
And I'm the one that's been abandoned,
Left behind on my own,
Tangled in the mess you've made.
Updated it a bit... not nearly done. will get there someday.
“Don’t let go!” he shouted. I closed my eyes and held on to his hand as tight as I possibly could. I could feel him slipping through my fingers, I could literally feel him slipping away. I opened my eyes and in...
Weaving pictures in my mind,
Of all the things I've left behind.
A tapestry of memories,
A portrait of how things used to be.
A word, a thought, a laugh a smile,
All beautifully etched in the image for a while.
The colours fade,
The feeling remains,
Like a part of your soul has...
that is my life
I'm forever drowning inside
Gasping for air
Wishing I could make things right
Demons have resided in my mind
Playing tricks on the human deep inside
Go away, just go away
Why don't let go of your lies
That remains tangled up in your pride
My memories and...
VERSE 1My heart feels heavy,Life in my eyes are too cruel,But one day I will see it in a new way,I will fight to survive.VERSE 2Each days flies by and I sit alone.One day you will see,You will see I am me,I am changing for the better,I will fly free.CHORUSToday I cried for many...
Like a shadow,
Your darkness consumes me.
I fall to my knees.
Begging to God, asking him why...
Who am I?
Who am I?
Don't I bleed red...
Just like you do?
Don't I watch the same full moon.
And the emptiness that haunts me... It still consumes.
Who am I?
Who am I?
actually. I've always had a dream of starting my own band, Plain Weird. I would love to make it a reality, but I don't know if it will. I want sort of a alt-rock band. This is the first song I'd ever actually finished.
1. Plain Weird
I talk in gibberish
I hear the pieces splinter,
And in that moment time stands still.
Shattering, falling, breaking,
Like rain that pours unendingly.
Pain courses through every fibre,
It twists its jagged edges,
embedding itself until
It is all that remains.
The pieces are so small,
The pain can't...
Close the door
Invade me I never opened my eyes
I don't really care anymore
Rob me of my soul
Rape me with your eyes
Transcend through time
I never opened my eyes
You'll whisper soft dark sweet lyrics in my ear that are as black as night and spread across eagles' wings
been sorrow , there could have been pain but yet all i can remember is the void.
The void of feelings once felt, it's essence leaving me in it's wake. Teasing, taunting me to chase only to find more of the same.
My heart is a time bomb of desire, i have no control when i...
You don't see me as I feel you .
You don't feel me as I see you .
Do not hear me as my heart holds true .
You won't give me.
When my mind is blue.
The time of day
Is it all I deserve?
A period of passing by .
Day and night a heartfelt cry.
To save me from myself...
I fell from grace,The fall was hard,The pained you caused,was brutal and scarred.I wished to never be in this place,That it hadn't happened,Was all a mistake.Yet still I fell.Heat turned to fire,The flames building so high,I just couldn't see it,I didn't want to try.I hit the...
