The Remnants of Uncertainty...
My Magician
10/22/08 at 08:36 AM by cassusriff
There is a resolution
a prestige to my act
You are my magician
You pulled a rabbit out of a hat

You see, the world was drowning
and I was locked in chains
and your soft hands unlocked me
Released me from this pain

And the best kind of amnesia
is the when you don't forget but you move on
I wish you could know
You magically righted every wrong
I took the hard road to get here
but the view with you is so clear
It's a whole new kind of imagination
My magician...

This act is over
This play is done
I'm going underground
I know that I have won

You see, the audience can clap or jeer
But when your eyes fix upon me
Everyone else can disappear
I remember how you set me free

So darling please
forget the tricks before
Darling please
I'm liking your performance more

Use your magic
My magician

The Fall (Winter Blossom)
10/19/08 at 01:07 AM by cassusriff
I don't know why... but I've gotten into songwriting again. I've been busting out lyrics as per usual, but now I'm writing music and working with friends on arrangements. I guess I'm just feeling really artistic and expressive lately, or maybe I just have something to write about again. Either way, I'm loving it.

A few blogs ago I wrote some lyrics and couldn't finish them because I was feeling blah. Well, here is the finished product.

"The Fall (Winter Blossom)"

My tears have never been clearer
My prayers have never been nearer
To coming true

Climb through the window
Whispering "Wake up, I love you"
Climb in beside you
To bed...

Hoping the morning will come
And dawn will start pouring
In through the window
Again...

I can't wait to wake up
And look at your face
And see your eyes smiling
Take me to a different place

It's like I've fallen on an earth that is heaven
My breath is short but my air is refreshing
My heart is on fire
My tears have never been clearer
My prayers have never been nearer
To coming true


I watched your plane leaving
And I watched the leaves change
This Autumn brings loneliness
Cause you're so far away...

I'm waiting for the blossom of springtime
In the middle of the winter
To see your eyes
Again...

I can't wait to wake up
And look at your face
And see your eyes smiling
Take me to a different place

It's like I've fallen on an earth that is heaven
My breath is short but my air is refreshing
My heart is on fire
My tears have never been clearer
My prayers have never been nearer
To coming true

The tips of mountaintops
To the depths of ocean bottoms
I'm dancing in flames
And drinking the crisp air


Enjoy the jam session. We should be recording the song soon...

Under The Same Sky
09/24/08 at 12:41 AM by cassusriff
I wrote these lyrics about someone special. My friend Jason is currently working on some music to it, so I'll post the song once we get it all finished! Enjoy!

Under the Same Sky

Oh you poor girls
You make me regret
The things you do to yourselves
I've hung around
With my lack of self
And I've taken your hits
But the shield is up now

You see, She came and saved me
She was the one who saw me clearly

And coast to coast
The sun is rising
Over here it's still the night
But she said,
Though we're worlds apart
We're still under the same sky

The parallels
The symmetry
It's uncanny
We're intertwined
We extend our vines
So imagine that we lie
Here tonight

You see, She came and saved me
She was the one who saw me clearly

And coast to coast
The sun is rising
Over here it's still the night
But she said,
Though we're worlds apart
We're still under the same sky

No One Does it Better than Me
08/06/08 at 11:30 PM by cassusriff
So, the coolest thing ever happened tonight. Max Bemis of Say Anything wrote me a song, you can download it from the link below. It's called, "No One Does it Better than Me"

No One Does It Better Than Me

It's a song about me being on my own and leaving the mundane life I had. Max really captured the anger and bitterness of my disposition. I love how he yells "Yeah!" after "I came to life". The song is actually a bit haunting. I feel like Max can relate to what I was talking about. Here is what he wrote in the email he sent me:

Quote:
hey dude!here's your song!
rememebr everyone needs friends and a support group but i'm glad you've made your life for yourself..it's very important and you did it!
max

Finally, here are the lyrics of the song. I like the simplicity and anger:


No one knows what I've seen
No one in this century
Cut teeth on the stone of drool
Put your death in a tanning booth

So I came to life
So I came to life
So I came to life
Yeah!

No one knows what its like
Waking up on this empty bedside
With no one next to me
Sucking out this sickness slowly

And I came to life
I came to life
I came to life
Yeah!

No one does it better
Than me
No one does it better
Than me
No one does it better
Than me
No one does...


I love this. I want to buy another song by Max, but this will do for now since I'm broke as all hell. I hope you all like my song, "No One Does it Better than Me"

Colour Me...
06/11/08 at 12:23 PM by cassusriff
We are cold tonight.
We share 5 or 6 blankets
don't look into my eyes
this is already insane

this shouldn't feel right
but it feels like it should happen again
and don't act like
that we aren't more than friends

i don't love
but i love you
and i don't care
but i care about you
and you swept me off my feet
until I hit the ground and found reality...

leave the others behind
the past and guilty feelings
my emotions stir
as I'm staring at your ceiling
what the hell is happening?

our legs are intertwined
your hair in between my fingers
and as your lips jump onto mine
time slows down

i don't love
but i love you
and i don't care
but i care about you
and you swept me off my feet
until I hit the ground and found reality...

but now your pushing me away
what the hell is happening?
we're holding hands beneath the sheets
and I can't help but kiss your cheek
I can't stop smiling
and I'm giddy
this isn't really happening
my head is spinning

i'm loving this
don't think about it
and just one more kiss
don't think about it...
