So I just got finished writing this one. It started with me blankly staring at the computer screen, with no inspiration whatsoever, when all of a sudden I got hit by a wealth of inspiration. Lately I haven't been motivated to do much, and so my inspiration has been dwindling away, all the while I've been able to come up with melodies and things for songs. I have absolutely no way to record or remember them, though, so it's only pushed me further down a path with very little inspiration and motivation to write.

So yeah, this is about my experiences with friendship, having very little confidence in myself, growing older and not feeling like I've done anything with my life, not feeling a whole lot different than I felt a few years ago, and trying to help build a better life for future generations. A future that's more tolerant of different kinds of people, people who don't try to adhere to stereotypes. The same part of me that wants my niece (and kids if I decide to have any), to live in a world that isn't as homophobic, racist, and sexist as it is today.

This isn't nearly as, erm, good as I'm making it out to be. So yeah, enough of my rambling on and on, here it is

Confound These Ponies, They Drive Me To Insomnia


Well friends, they arenít forever, as some may falsely claim
I know I donít have many, and the ones I do are faint
So keep this world on spinning
And rotate as I count
A limited time only is a fairly small amount

But life is still a treasure, as others often say
I hope to one day live it to the fullest in some way
Iíll keep these feet on moving
Go forward as I march
I go someplace but nowhere and end up at the start

Iíll let go when I see fit to move on with my life
I never grieve for long, and I try not to lose sight
Of the fight for better days
Fix the future, fix today
So the next generation will have a better stay

I wrote this one after reading a post on a different website... I just felt compelled to write it after reading that person's post. I try to write from other people's perspectives from time to time.

Don’t know if you’re dead or alive
I pushed you to the edge, I corrupted your mind
Perfect, though you were, I ruined what you had
Only now I realize, I’m sorry, and goodbye
Words I never got to speak, things I wish I hadn’t done
I was a wreck, I was a mess, I have so much to confess

I apologize, too late, it slips away
This city separates us, puts shackles on my feet
I deserve to rot in prison for the crimes that I’m committing
Pathetic in my eyes, a monster, not a saint

Some things are better buried in the past
Digging dirt, because I know that I’ll never last
Imperfect, though I was, I wish that things could change
I wish that you could forgive me for my mistakes
Let days that pass before us lead to better things
A train wreck caused a mess, and it’s all the things I’ve missed

I apologize, too late, it slips away
This city separates us, puts shackles on my feet
I deserve to rot in prison for the crimes that I’m committing
Pathetic in my eyes, a monster, not a saint

This writing flows very nicely.

Roaring Silence

There’s a bright light, distraction, coming from the other room
It drags attention from the present to a dark vacuum
As empty as my head,- tonight, I lie awake all day
Can’t figure out what I am all about
My last thought was just clearing out the space

And I can’t think with familiar scenes
When these songs echo in my head
The sound of silence pushes past me
It’s louder than it’s ever been, it’s become deafening

In the corner, in the pitch black night I’ll just assume
When a figment of my emptiness tries so hard to bloom
No progress on my regrets or time that they consume
Still in a drought, it’s drying out
My every thought was draining me for days

And I can’t think with familiar scenes
When these songs echo in my head
The sound of silence pushes past me
It’s louder than it’s ever been, it’s become deafening

Do We Need This Much Corruption?

Endless possibilities surround me
But the limit is the line I drew myself
A closed off, barred up, error at the bottom a map
An image of a whisper in my ear

I’ve captured light on top of mountains where the shadows don’t hang out
Tracing lines in sand by oceans that can speak the truth out load
So the crackles in the sound waves make frequencies run dry
Inside hopeless songs that don’t stick in your head throughout the day

Strangers follow suit when they don’t need to
Instead of doing what they want to do
To fit in with the public, to follow in the act
They’re closing every possibility

I’ve captured light on top of mountains where the shadows don’t hang out
Tracing lines in sand by oceans that can speak the truth out load
So the crackles in the sound waves make frequencies run dry
Inside hopeless songs that don’t stick in your head throughout the day

There’s no jumping to conclusions
We don’t have any solutions
We lack in the ability to stay alive
So throw us out onto the streets, we lack sustainability
Molten cores and flailing worlds, define with great detail

Blinding lights and pitch black nights make for everything we feel
Emotions in a broken shell define what we call real
You pray for better days to come and crush the mass appeal
So dive right into boiling waters, hope that it’s not real

There’s a sense in this delusion
But I let it go, let it go away
There’s a word we could have spoken
But I let it go, let it go away
Fire in our eyes is fine, it isn’t alright

Blinding lights and pitch black nights make for everything we feel
Emotions in a broken shell define what we call real
You pray for better days to come and crush the mass appeal
So dive right into boiling waters, hope that it’s not real

I've written a couple others that are actually songs now. I just got finished writing this. Not sure if it's any good or not, though.

Was it supposed to end up like this?
I ask myself that every chance I get
They’re gone, they’re gone forever
Never coming back

A swollen heart scarred and tossed in the ditch
A funeral for two unlucky kids
They’re gone, they’re gone forever
Never coming back

The world will keep on spinning, but mine’s all torn apart
The hours dragging endless, I wish I could restart
It’s a mess, it’s a wreck, it’s a tragedy
It’s another dying part of me
Somehow I will come through this on my own

And now I see just how fragile life can be
If it’s worth that much to you than you can take my life from me
I’ve wandered aimlessly, I’m torn apart at the seams
I’ve always had bad dreams, so if you want you can take mine from me

Take mine from me
It wouldn’t hurt that much
Take mine from me
I’ve got no reason to hold a grudge
Take mine from me
Take mine from me, take mine from me, take mine from me

very expressive lyrics...can hear them sung when I read them. Funny to think how different my "version" would be from yours, I bet.

Follow The Tide

The sun chases my shadow
My eyes follow the tide
Until the day collapses
When words start to collide

Days, they feel so shallow
Until my hope has died
As the time elapses
Into this divide

And I just want out
Can’t seem to climb through my doubt
It dies exceedingly slow
And loses self control

My hands, they start to let go
Of what I use to hold
When I forget all I know
I’m destined to grow old

My mind is growing weary
My body’s feeling weak
All the time I spent here
Writing words and wasting ink

And I just want out
Can’t seem to climb through my doubt
It dies exceedingly slow
And loses self control


When Shadows Fade

When shadows start to fade
And footsteps lead away
There’s trouble and it’s coming my way
I start every day late
I sleep until I wake
And every night feels the same

I’m swimming, I’m swimming through the week
Astounding, not drowning, the outcome is bleak
Forever drags on and I don’t want to give in
The only words I utter are fallible, distant

Time, it ticks away
Until the light decays
And sinks into everything I say
These islands drift away
From where they once had stayed
But I guess every now and then we stray

I’m swimming, I’m swimming through the week
Astounding, not drowning, the outcome is bleak
Forever drags on and I don’t want to give in
The only words I utter are fallible, distant

Visions

These strangers were my best friends yesterday
I lost them when I thought I found my way back home
Pictures painted me so desperately
The fading hues of space and time tore me away from them

A world that lost it’s color in a forest filled with trees
Cars pass by with stranger's faces driving far from me
Exempt from the weight of myself flying in the breeze
Trash in cycles ends up on the side of what I see
This mass of land is stretching out past all the trees
It hushes noise and loses volume to a large degree

Clouds take part in blocking out the sun
My feet move fast in shambles when I try to run
I’m shrouded in the darkness of the night
As solid objects crumble in the distance of my sight

These strangers were my best friends yesterday
I lost them when I thought I found my way back home
Pictures painted me so desperately
The fading hues of space and time tore me away from them
