Fake Congratulations

2 Aug

If I could find motivation I’d upload the mp3.  But nope.

How you wanted to say that this was okay
Broken hearts take the longest to heal anyway

Drink up all the fake congratulations
Endless bottle boundless tragedies

I want you to believe
I want you to believe that
This is not what it seems

Under the covers
Beneath the surface
It’s not so okay

Wind up toy girl
Play for a penny
Say what you were taught

They’ll turn you on from the outside looking in
Glass walls tiger jaws within

You’re just a monster not created
Just as twisted as your deepest secrets

Help me Help me looking in
Help me Help me break me free
Help me through the looking glass
Help me you’re my creation

Help me through the looking glass
Help me through the looking

All I Want

27 Jul

Last post was in April 2009… wow. It’s not like I haven’t written anything since April 2009, I just haven’t posted it. And I’ve been focused primarily on songs anyways. So here is one.

*****

All I Want

I’m not satisfied with the lies you tell
You’re holding fireworks with bare worn hands
The garden’s shriveled up and stripped out bare
Your skin is leather tough with no remorse

So tell me
What do you do, why do you hate, how much it’ll take
So tell me
What’s your desire who do you hurt, when does it end

All I want is a little of your charm and grace
And all I want is a little bit of your embrace
Do you remember, do you remember
Do you remember, do you remember
All I want is a little of your lies

I won’t hestitate to take you off your pedestal
I’ll strip away the crown and leave it hanging dry
You might as well just throw of all the sceptres
The wounded the hurt they have theirs coming

So tell me
What do you do, why do you hate, how much it’ll take
So tell me
What’s your desire who do you hurt, when does it end

All I want is a little of your charm and grace
And all I want is a little bit of your embrace
Do you remember, do you remember
Do you remember, do you remember
All I want is a little of your lies

That Girl

30 Mar

I know that I’ve been terrible at updating, but I’ve been tied up with personal and Dead Hour stuff (ie. recording and putting holes on my car’s tire… don’t ask). And to be honest, I haven’t been feeling very creative this weekend and definitely not at all today – I can’t seem to make any songs work today.

But here’s something that I recorded really quickly yesterday – I realize that the quality isn’t the greatest and I don’t have the levels set just right, but that’s okay.  It’s a really rough demo and I’m happy with it being like that.

That Girl

I am quite aware that Garbage has a song of the same name.  Oh well.

And I will finish chapter 3 of Finding Daniella.  One day.

Midnight Hour

22 Mar

As my life has revolved around music recently, it makes sense that my first post would be a song.

Midnight Hour

I wrote this a couple of days back.  It’s not completely done but it’s getting there.  The first version was a little bit messy so I’ve kind of chopped it up and made it a little bit more coherent.  Previously, there was a little bit too much going on at one go, so I’ve taken the “solo” bits and highlighted them in different sections.  It’s a little bit messy from the chopping and at some point, I’m planning to re-record it (I’ll post it again then, heh) but I like the song and where it’s headed.
