Lyrics to songs I have created

Entries in this blog

A new song from me. Unnecessary things we do, when there are people who need help.

Broken Bones

Looking at the news again tonight

Full of new kind of disasters

Coming so unexpectedly

Coming more frequent, faster

Both natural, and caused by man

Both are becoming too routine

We can stop them, cannot we

Have to find the correct vaccine

Chorus:

And all the broken bones

That are lying on the floor

Reminds me of the broken homes

That were intact before

And all the broken souls

Inside of the beaten bodies

One by one will fold

Like a bad comedy

Looking at the news again tonight

Full of death and killing

So needless, unnecessary

Loads of blood we're spilling

Both natural, and caused by man

Mostly us with brutal violence

We can't stop them, or can we

Someone please break the silence

Chorus

Hurricanes

Tornadoes

Flooding

Us expose

Guns, bombs

Sharp knives

Missiles

Losing our lives

Shooting

Stabbing

Murder

Send us to our coffins

Blizzards

Heat waves

Earthquakes

Send us to our graves

Chorus

Like an atrocious comedy

A Cappella version (lacking some musical parts):

I'd again appreciate any comments.

Force Fed (lyrics)

By Nzap,

This is my newest song. It's about how crap is flying in from everywhere in the media and how we all are being molded to be the same.

Force Fed

We are Force Fed!!!!

We are force fed, all the crap that is seen in the media

All the advertisements, before every show, every video

How did it happen, they now think everything for us

How can we end this, is there anyone left that we can trust

Force fed information that we don't care about

Force fed anything between heaven and earth

Force fed material so that governments can look us up

Force fed everything all your life from your birth

We are force fed, and then the info is used against us

We all should be, full of dissatisfaction and disgust

How did it happen, free thought just evaporated

What shall we do now, next generation will hate us if we waited

Force fed information that we don't care about

Force fed anything between heaven and earth

Force fed material so that governments can look us up

Force fed everything all your life from your birth

And everything has suddenly

Turned into a big cry of publicity

How did it happen so rapidly

Everyone lost their individuality

Force fed information that we don't care about

Force fed anything between heaven and earth

Force fed material so that governments can look us up

Force fed everything all your life from your birth

Force fed information that we don't care about

Force fed anything between letters A and Z

Force fed material from everywhere and it's too loud

Force fed everything from your birth, until you're dead

I would appreciate any comments.

Constant Nightmare

By Nzap,

A new song. Title should tell the story.

Constant Nightmare

Like having a constant nightmare

Like having a spell bestowed on you

Makes you full of despair

Getting hard to pull it through

Like having a constant nightmare

Waking up every night

With a blanked out, numb stare

And an ache in your side

I don't know what the hell I'm supposed to do

Is this a signal or an alert

Or something my conscience out there spews

As a means of divert

Like having a constant nightmare

And never waking up

It starts to make a huge tear

But nothing will erupt

Like having a constant nightmare

With no end in sight

Can't make you at all prepared

When you suddenly feel alive

I don't know what the hell I'm supposed to do

Is this a signal or an alert

Or something my conscience out there spews

As a means of divert

-----------------------

I don't know what the hell I'm supposed to do

As there are no directions

There's only a small picture of you

That path will be my selection

I didn't know what the hell I was supposed to do

In the end it didn't matter

Cause that helped me pull it through

It was the needed dagger

I'd appreciate any comments.

A new song.

Asylum

I'm trying to relax

But I can see the cracks

On the ceiling on the top of my hospital bed

I'm trying to relax

Keep my cool at its max

Still they're keeping me in the psychic ward instead

Am I just imagining it?

Have I gone crazy?

It wouldn't be so shocking

Wouldn't amaze me

I'm trying to keep my cool

Don't wanna appear like a fool

But it's pissing me off cause it's so unfair

I'm trying to keep my cool

Despite it being so damn cruel

Damned if I do, damned if a don't I guess, I don't care

Am I here on reputation or here on merit?

Nothing is clear here anymore

If my roommate perishes, do I him inherit?

Or am I again completely ignored

I'm trying to think straight

But more confusion it creates

As I'm still here despite being of the sane kind

I'm trying to think straight

But for some reason the hate

Keeps surfacing in the depths of my mind

Am I here on reputation or here on merit?

Nothing is clear here anymore

If my roommate perishes, do I him inherit?

Or am I again completely ignored

I'm trying to relax

But I'm still seeing the cracks

On the ceiling on the top of my hospital bed

I'm trying to relax

As the ceiling crashed

And crushed me beneath

The concrete

I'd again appreciate any comments.

Heart of Rust

By Nzap,

Here's a new song I've written. Hope you guys like it.

Heart of Rust

Hey you

I'm not here to judge you

I'm not here to smudge your reputation

I'm just here as a friend

Hey you

I'm not here to criticize

I'm not here to spread lies of your past

I'm just here, can you comprehend

What I am telling you

What this means to both of us

So please hold on for dear life

On my heart that's full of rust

Where have you been all this time

I've been searching for you

Why is it so hard to find

Someone, it's becoming so sad but true

That for me it is only happening in dreams

And when I wake up I'm so full of sweat and screams

Hey you

The devil from my best dream

Have you run out of steam now finally

For the last time

Hey you

The angel from my nightmare

Not making me scared despite I should

But I'm all fine, so can you comprehend

What I'm telling you

What this means to both of us

So please hold on for dear life

On my heart that's full of rust

Where have you been all this time

I've been searching for you

Why is it so hard to find

Someone, it's becoming so sad but true

That for me it is only happening in dreams

And when I wake up I'm so full of sweat and screams

My heart has become so brittle

So weak, so fragile

So please be very gentle

Don't hit it straight with a missile

You need to polish off the rust

That has gathered on for so many years

Along with all the layers of dust

You have a job on your hands my dear

Where have you been all this time

I've been searching for you

Why is it so hard to find

Someone, it's becoming so sad but true

That for me it is only happening in dreams

And when I wake up I'm so full of only sweat and screams

Any comments would be appreciated.

Hi

I'm back again. Many songs have been written but none shown. Let's begin to correct that mistake.

First I display a song I tried to write metaphorically and using symbols.

Let's see how I fared:

We saw it Burn

We saw it burn

For 5 hours straight

We saw it burn

Flames so high it did create

We saw it burn

Wished it'd burn forever

And we learned

Future looked even better

But in the end we were only left with the ashes

And all the good times could only be remembered in flashes

Oh what I would pay to somehow turn back the clock

But it's broken so in the present we are stuck

We felt the pain

With the announcement

We felt the pain

Of the times we spent

We felt the shame

Despite we shouldn't

As we rained

Cause else we couldn't

And in the end we were only left with the ashes

And all the good times could only be remembered in flashes

Oh what I would pay to somehow turn back the clock

But it's broken so in the present we are stuck

Well in the end we are only left with the ashes

Many good thoughts will only be remembered in flashes

There is no way to somehow turn back the clock

Need to do our best now cause in the present we are stuck

I'd appreciate comments :).

Mommy's little Angel

My mom would kill me if she knew I took the Rover

She'd kill me twice if she knew I wasn't sober

And I know that this still isn't over

Cause in the air, there is still this odor

Of booze and drugs, the smell is so clear

Pretty much the opposite of my head

I don't even know if I am here, and

Have no idea on the location of my bed

She used to be mommy's little angel

Now she's become a complete stranger

The rebel life has taken its toll

And has begun now to seize control

My mom would kill me if she knew I scratched the car

She'd kill me twice if she knew it was at the bar

And that I left it there on its own

Cause it couldn't help me find my way back home

I don't know where I am, it is all a haze

Pretty much the same as yesterday

Trying my best to tie my shoelace

But only failing, yesterday's replay

She used to be mommy's little angel

Now she's become a complete stranger

The rebel life has taken its toll

And has begun now to seize control

Over and out

On top of the clouds

Falling down, fast she fell

All the way down, straight to hell

She used to be mommy's little angel

Now she's become a complete stranger

The rebel life has taken its toll

And has begun now to seize control

She used to be mommy's little angel

Used to be mommy's little angel

She used to be mommy's little angel

Full of life, but now just danger

Attention Whore

By Nzap,

Attention Whore

There's this girl I met one day

I noticed immediately

That there was something that she possessed

That made me feel like she was a mess

I didn't understand it then and there

She seemed great and I was ready to declare

Her normal, but something made me uneasy

I don't know what it was, but maybe, maybe

Ooh-oh

She's an attention whore

Wants to be the center of attention on the floor

Ooh-oh

She's an attention whore

She can't handle a second of being ignored

And she can't see the problems

That this does generate

So she won't change her system

Before it is all to late

Ooh-oh

She's an attention whore

Cannot handle not having attention galore

Ooh-oh

She's an attention whore

And that's why no-one can stand her anymore

So there she was, only her and me

If I make a move, I should make it rapidly

But still there was a nagging feeling that

In the end it would all end up bad

I did understand it then and there

Suddenly so quickly I became aware

How and by what she was possessed

So I could abandon my educated guess

Ooh-oh

She's an attention whore

Wants to be the center of attention on the floor

Ooh-oh

She's an attention whore

She can't handle a second of being ignored

And she can't see the problems

That this does generate

So she won't change her system

Before it is all to late

Ooh-oh

She's an attention whore

Cannot handle not having attention galore

Ooh-oh

She's an attention whore

And that's why no-one can stand her anymore

Perhaps my eyes did me deceive

The result was the same, i.e. I'd leave

And yes, as I left I saw her make a scene

And wiping my conscience completely clean

Ooh-oh

She's an attention whore

Wants to be the center of attention on the floor

Ooh-oh

She's an attention whore

She can't handle a second of being ignored

Ooh-oh

She's an attention whore

To get noticed even her own heart she'd tore

Ooh-oh

She's an attention whore

Nothing is good enough for her anymore

Another new song. Feel free to comment.

5 Senses (Lyrics)

By Nzap,

Hi

Here's another song I've written. Please leave a comment. I would appreciate it.

5 Senses

Without our eyes

We wouldn't for long survive

We wouldn't be aware of any danger

No matter if caused by friends or strangers

Without our ears

We'd all be dead my dear

We wouldn't be aware of any sound

Caused by things that could beat us down

We are in dire need of all our senses

We need them no matter how long barbed wire fences

We build around us to make us feel safe

It won't save us unless our senses are ablaze

So hold on tight, be prepared to brace

For the oncoming death if our senses can't us save

If we couldn't feel

We wouldn't know what is real

We wouldn't be aware of any pain

That could cause us to harm ourselves in vain

Without our nose

We can't sense an enemy that's up close

We wouldn't be aware of any smell

That potential danger for us could tell

We are in dire need of all our senses

We need them no matter how long barbed wire fences

We build around us to make us feel safe

It won't save us unless our senses are ablaze

So hold on tight, be prepared to brace

For the oncoming death if our senses can't us save

Without our tongue

This song would remain unsung

We wouldn't be aware of the taste of things

And potential diseases that these could bring

We are in dire need of all our senses

We need them no matter how long barbed wire fences

We build around us to make us feel safe

It won't save us unless our senses are ablaze

So hold on tight, be prepared to brace

For the oncoming death if our senses can't us save

New lyrics: "POW"

By Nzap,

Here's some new lyrics I've written:

POW

When you walk and look around

What do you see?

Is it a figment of your imagination

or reality?

When you reach a moment when you can't

Separate them anymore

You have lost your senses and everything

seems like a fog of war

Have you become a POW?

With no idea of what to do?

A prisoner in the war in your own mind, so sad

Have you become a POW?

With no light shining through

You need to help yourself a whole lot, not just a tad

When you walk and look around

What do you see?

Is it your own life or just

another dream?

When you reach a moment when the 2

Are all the same

You should be worried of

what you became

Have you become a POW?

With no idea of what to do?

A prisoner in the war in your own mind, so sad

Have you become a POW?

With no light shining through

You need to help yourself a whole lot, not just a tad

Tumbling down recklessly

Losing grasp of sanity

Have you become a POW?

With no idea of what to do?

A prisoner in the war in your own mind, so sad

Have you become a POW?

With no light shining through

You need to help yourself a whole lot, not just a tad

A tad is nowhere close enough

A large noise will overpower a cough

So help yourself, at least adequately

And start to live your life as then you'll be free

Feel free to comment as always.

Hi

Here's a new one I wrote. It's about living life, but not to stress too much and to live life at your own pace.

Merry-go-round

I am gonna ride the world like a merry-go-round

I am gonna ride the world like a giant carousel

There's so much to see

In the universe

You have to hurry to see it all

No time to rehearse

"Hurry, hurry you're outta time"

Where did all the time go?

"You're gonna lose it, lose it again

Get a move on you're too slow"

I am gonna ride the world like a merry-go-round

I am gonna ride the world like a giant carousel

I am gonna ride the world to experience the sights and sounds

I am gonna ride the world until I will hear my final knell

There's so much to see

All over the globe

But I won't see all of it

As I'm an acrophobe

"Hurry, hurry you're outta time"

Where did all the time go?

"You're gonna lose it, lose it again

Get a move on you're too slow"

I am gonna ride the world like a merry-go-round

I am gonna ride the world like a giant carousel

I am gonna ride the world to experience the sights and sounds

I am gonna ride the world until I will hear my final knell

There's too much to see

Down here on earth

So don't worry too much

Live life for what it's worth

"Hurry, hurry", no I won't hurry

I'm not running out of time

Living life in constant movement

Is a thought so asinine

I am gonna ride the world like a merry-go-round

I am gonna ride the world but I'm gonna bide my time

I am gonna ride the world to experience the sights and sounds

But I won't hurry at all, cause that is a thought so asinine

Any comments would be appreciated.

Here is another song I wrote. Hope you enjoy, and please leave a comment.

Fill the Tank

I'm escaping from the bank

But then my heart sank

When I saw the red light flash, thought the fuel pump had failed

When I was robbing the bank

I figured you would've filled the tank

And now I'm stranded by the road, all alone, with cops on my tail

Why couldn't I rely on you when I needed you the most

Now I'm in the lurch, and probably soon I'll be toast

I was counting on you, but you let me down again

And left me with a 1-way ticket to the nearest prison

I ditched the car in the ditch

Made my way onto the bridge

And contemplating of jumping down into the freezing cold lake

Then I heard the screams and shouts

I knew what I had to do, no doubts

When I took the leap and held my breath and prayed to God this wasn't a mistake

Why couldn't I rely on you when I needed you the most

Now I'm in the lurch, and probably soon I'll be toast

I was counting on you, but you let me down again

And left me with a 1-way ticket to the nearest prison

Short of strength, grasping for air

I found the shore with seconds to spare

I couldn't believe I was alive, when I saw you with a gun in your hand

Then a shot was fired

And there was much left to be desired

Everything turned out to occur, just the way that you'd always planned

Why couldn't I rely on you when I needed you the most

You left me in the lurch, and I was always going to be toast

I was counting on you, but it was always in the cards

You left me with a 1-way ticket to the nearest graveyard

Just a song I wrote. Tell me what you think.

Lie to the FBI

Here you see, here you see me lie

On a beach in southern California

Here you see me lie to the FBI

To get you off the hook

Here you see, here you see me break

The law that was written ages ago

Here you see me make this mistake

That made me the crook

That I'm still today

Here you see, here you see me breathe

With a rate that's as fast as anything

Here you see me sweating like a leaf

During sunshine after heavy rain

Here you see, here you see me mislead

These people who are in charge

Here you see me sweating blood indeed

My soul is in deep, deep pain

Why did I agree to this deal you proposed to me?

Why did I say yes, although I didn't really agree?

Oh well I have to live with the guilt, the pain, the suffering from now on

And it won't stop until I'm locked behind bars and gone

Here you see, here you see me lie

Straight to their faces

Here you see me lie to the FBI

And also the NSA

Here you see, here you see me deceive

I dug myself in this hole

Here you see me with no ace up my sleeve

Only these worn out clichés

Why did I agree to this deal you proposed to me?

Why did I say yes, although I didn't really agree?

Oh well I have to live with the guilt, the pain, the suffering from now on

And it won't stop until I'm locked behind bars and gone

Here you see, here you see me lie

On the rock-hard prison bed

Here you see me lying to the FBI

So clearly on videotape

Here you see, here you see me sigh

In despair and disbelief

Here you see me without the alibi

That I tried to shape

Out of nothing

Cause I lied to the FBI

Footsteps (Lyrics)

By Nzap,

A new song that I wrote.

Feel free to comment.

Footsteps

I'm following the footsteps you left in the snow

I'm following the trail cause I can't let you go

It's freezing and windy, but I keep going on

Straight through the night until early dawn

The footsteps get harder and harder to see

As the snowstorm is brewing so violently

The footsteps get harder and harder to see

So I have to find my way urgently

I have to find my way to my destination

Through the snowstorm without navigation

I can't see a thing, only footsteps in sight

But that's enough to get my desire to ignite

But I need to find shelter quickly now

Branches are flying as are boughs

I can't get knocked out when I am so close

A small break is OK, I suppose

I won't stop until I find what I need

I will never give up, surrender, concede

I won't stop until I find what I need

And that is 100% guaranteed

I have to find my way to my destination

Through the snowstorm without navigation

I can't see a thing, only footsteps in sight

But that's enough to get my desire to ignite

But now I find that the trail has gone cold

I should have realized this is how it would unfold

And now I find that the trail has gone cold

I lost it all, but wait, lo and behold

I now found my way to my wanted destination

Through the snowstorm without navigation

I couldn't see a thing, only footsteps were in sight

But that was enough as my desire did in fact ignite

Sometimes I write about things that are not about myself, but rather about people I know who have a hard time.

Claire Jones is not the name of the person, only a name to represent him/her.

The Sad Song

Hey Claire Jones

Why are you alone

At home

On your own?

Feeling the pain

High on Mary Jane

Insane

Two lines of cocaine

Doesn't it feel like your life goes to waste

Doesn't it feel like you will never get a taste

Of your own life

It's like you're living without ambition

You're living without a vision

You're living without a mission

You're living on a pile of ammunition

Hey you tonight

Sleeping alright?

At night?

Future's bright?

Decisions you make

All the risks you take

Mistake

Your life is fake

Doesn't it feel like your life goes to waste

Doesn't it feel like you will never get a taste

Of your own life

It's like you're living without ambition

You're living without a vision

You're living without a mission

You're living on a pile of ammunition

Hey, hey Claire Jones

Passed out, all alone

Your life's gone down the drain

And now all you do is drown in shame

Doesn't it feel like your life goes to waste

Doesn't it feel like you will never get a grip

Of your life

You've gone so far that you can't save your face

Or your arms and lips

From your knife

I'd appreciate any comments.

Back to normal songs now after the story.

Dumbfounded

I've never cried over sour milk

Never cried for Turkish silk

I've never cried for anything as much as I cry for you

I've never felt I should earn more

Never felt I needed a cure

I've never felt like this before

And now I'm dumbfounded and I don't know what to do

Trying to think of everything, but every thought leads back to you

I can't leave this in my brain just for it to stew

And I can't erase it by thinking of something new

I've never lost my will to live

Never lost my skill to forgive

Two important pieces that you should never forget

I've never made sense of hieroglyphs

Never made sense of time rifts

Never thought life's not a gift

And now I'm dumbfounded and I don't know what to do

Trying to think of everything, but every thought leads back to you

I can't leave this in my brain just for it to stew

And I can't erase it by thinking of something new

I've never had too much time

Never had small mountains to climb

And now I'm running out of good words that could rhyme

I've never felt you in my arms

Guard's down and disarmed

Time to sound the alarm?

And now I'm dumbfounded and I don't know what to do

Trying to think of everything, but every thought leads back to you

I can't leave this in my brain just for it to stew

And I can't erase it by thinking of something new

Any comments would be appreciated.

Okay, the last song from Part 1 of the story, and also the last song I will show you guys from my 30 song story. I posted these songs here to get some general comments on my writing, and as I didn't get that, I see little point in showing these.

Anyway, this is the last song from "Story of the Year" and Benjamin has been taken as a POW and is not treated very well by the Suburbian troops he betrayed before.

Torture Techniques

Where am I

What am I doing here

Here I lie

With situation unclear

Why do I

Have a helmet on my head

Filled with cables

And this casket full of blades

As I realized the severity

Of this situation involving me

One second

I'm all fine, no hurt and pain

Next second

It's like my blood turns into flames

Oh the shocks

I feel them from head to toe

Then it stops

But the pain still continues to grow

What else might they have in store

I'm sure that there is something more

Eagerly anticipating to attack me

It's their Torture Techniques

Torture techniques

Torture techniques

Oh the sound

Some kind of signal or tone

Oh good Lord

So annoying, it makes me groan

The sound concludes

Now they're talking to me

"Every night

This sound will start up at 3"

They want me to become a lunatic

And become really ill and sick

So that they would get control of me

Using their Torture Techniques

Torture techniques

Torture techniques

Oh the screams

I hear from the other hallways

Oh the shrieks

Someone caves in and betrays

But I won't

I spit my guard in his face

He takes out a blade

And towels that his hands defaced

They got me bound and gagged

Then they kicked and stabbed

And I felt the blood running out of me

That's their torture techniques

Torture techniques

Torture techniques

I'd appreciate any comments.

The 14th song of the 30 song story. Here the protagonists go on their separate ways, but unfortunately for one of them the road becomes much more difficult.

Separate Ways

She was just standing there

Watching him sleep for hours

She was in no hurry

Gathering all her power

She knew she had to leave

Before the break of dawn

Before the riot broke out

Before the commencing storm

She made the preparations, she drew up the schemes

Revenge, and then bringing back the city of dreams

She departed later that night

And walked out into the dark

She couldn't see a thing

She boldly had to follow her heart

She wasn't going to

Let anything stand in her way

She would shoot everyone down

Like a passing lighting train

She would get her revenge, a sweet one at that

This wasn't a thing that she thought could end bad

Now they have gone their separate ways

On missions to bring back the warm breeze

One using stealth, one with guns ablaze

which method will bring back the peace

"Where has she gone now

And what is the time"

Was his first thoughts

When he woke up after nine

He knew he had to hurry

Because time was dire

The riot's starting anytime now

You can see the fire

The expected offense from the Suburbian troops

Fighting to get back the city of the youth

He knew they wouldn't remember

Him fondly cause of the case

Of what had happened earlier

Blowing up their main base

So he had to leave now

Headed east trying to pass

The riot unnoticed

He was hindered by the wet grass

He slipped and fell and cursed himself back up

Did they notice that or was he lucky enough?

Now they have gone their separate ways

On missions to bring back the warm breeze

One using stealth, one with guns ablaze

which method will bring back the peace

Now they have gone their separate ways

On missions to bring back the warm breeze

One leaves corpses, the other one leaves no trace

Let's see who'll cause the least calamities

It didn't take long

Before it all was too quiet

He realized it now

He had alerted the riot

He mischeduled his depature

And for this there was no cure

He scrambled his weapons but it was all in vain

He didn't have enough time, didn't have enough time, he had only himself to blame

Now they have gone their separate ways

On missions to bring back the warm breeze

One using stealth, one with guns ablaze

which method will bring back the peace

Now they have gone their separate ways

On missions to bring back the warm breeze

She was on her way without any delays

He found himself beaten up and on his knees

I'd appreciate any comments.

The 13th song of the story and the story takes a huge jump during the next 2 songs. Here Benjamin is thinking about Jennifer.

Oh Jennifer

I'd like to start a forest fire for you

Then grow it back, give it to you as new

I'd do anything, anything for you

And I would think, you'd do it for me too

I don't know how I caught this

I figured out now ignorance is bliss!

Cause I don't need this now, to derail my mind

But now that I know I can't leave it behind....

Oh Jennifer

I want to inhale the air you breath

Oh Jennifer

What can I do for this to succeed?

We'll just have to do this

And see what it will bring

I'd like to think, this could lead somewhere

I will never know if I don't grow a pair

I'd like you to stay, but I know you can't

I hate this war, it I can't stand....

Oh Jennifer

I want to inhale the air you breath

Oh Jennifer

What can I do for this to succeed?

We'll just have to do this

And see what it will bring

Here we are

On railroad tracks we stand

Looking at the stars

Finalizing my plan

As a crazy thought

Popped up in my mind

We could meet here later

Each other we would then find

Oh Jennifer

I want to inhale the air you breath

Oh Jennifer

What can I do for this to succeed?

"We have our own objectives to accomplish

But if we both make it out alive

Can we meet here 12 days from now?

Can we even try?"

I'd appreciate any comments again.

The story continues with Benjamin and Jennifer still talking about life; how to approach it, how to live it and how to see it.

12. Simplistic Dichotomies

J: Everything that's found in this world

Can be named, and labeled

And that is something that we learn

As soon as we're in the cradle

All the things that can be found

Can always be categorized

It is square, and it is round

Nothing in between, it's only lies

Is the world made up of simplistic dichotomies

Are there others here, or only friends and enemies

B: You cannot be so narrow minded

That you'd believe everything that's said

Or do the promises make you blinded

And mess up with your head

The world is filled with broken promises

Those that will never be kept

So think about them, let it digest

With your each and every breath

The world is not made up of simplistic dichotomies

There are also others here, not only friends and enemies

You cannot label the world into different categories

As the world is not made up of simplistic dichotomies

And beat the promises with a bat

Before you will regret that

You did nothing

You did nothing that could have saved them all

And grab yourself in the neck

Before you'll become a wreck

And do something

And do something that will lead to our fall

The world is not made up of simplistic dichotomies

There are also others here, not only friends and enemies

You cannot have a narrow vision a narrow perspective

You were wrong before, you have to live in what you believe

I'd again appreciate any comments.

The 11th song in the 30 song journey trough a civil war for Jennifer and Benjamin. Here Jennifer is saying how this has changed her and Benjamin giving her advice on how to look at oneself and life in general.

11. Dead & Buried

J: Have you ever had the thought, what you believe in is wrong

That what you've always believed in isn't really true

Doesn't that change you, when you don't know where you belong

Cause now I have no idea of anything, haven't got a clue

I lost my faith and what I believed in when I was being betrayed

Now in this large world my head spins around, I'm confused

I don't know if in this you can at all begin to relate

Or am I just going crazy here with all the new big news?

B: Why do you insist on digging up stuff that happened in the past?

You can't change them anymore let go of them please, I ask

Why can't you face the simple facts

You are what you are, don't try to act

So go and find you're true "inner me"

Before it will be all gone, dead & buried

J: Have you ever had the thought what you believe in isn't really right

That what you've always believed in turns out to be false

Doesn't that change you, can even happen overnight

And your entire vision on life it might start to divulse

B: Why do you insist on digging up stuff that happened in the past?

You can't change them anymore let go of them please, I ask

Why can't you face the simple facts

You are what you are, don't try to act

So go and find you're true "inner me"

Before it will be all gone, dead & buried

You rejected your true premise

For a crazy new one of yours

And now you don't know what you believe in anymore

I'll soon tell you the truth in this

But first throw your thoughts into an abyss

And go out there, find your true "inner me"

Before you'll go crazy and become dead & buried

I'd really appreciate any comments on the songs. Even if you think they suck I'd like some kind of comment. I wanted to put these here and show them to you so that I could find comments on how to improve my songwriting and see if these are any good.

Here is the 10th song from the album "Story of the Year" that I've written.

Jennifer is reminiscing the good times.

10. Do you Remember?

Do you know how it was in the early going?

When there were only warm breezes blowing?

When everyone lived in felicity

A time when everything was fine and in harmony

Do you remember?

Do you remember?

Do you know how it was in the early going?

When the city was rising, expanding and growing?

When everyone lived in gaiety

A time when everything was fine and in tranquility

Do you remember?

Do you remember?

But now, there's nothing left anymore

Now, the city's ruins are down on the floor

Now, corpses float onto the shore

And now, we think of the time

When everything was fine

Do you know how it was in the early going?

When the city was built and its lights were glowing

When everyone lived in equanimity

A time when everything was fine and in placidity

Do you remember?

Do you remember?

Do you know how it was in the early going?

When there was peace and no-one was moaning

When everyone lived with vivacity

A time when everthing was fine and in serenity

But now, there's nothing left anymore

Now, the city's ruins are down on the floor

Now, corpses float onto the shore

And now, we think of the time

When everything was fine

But then something happened

We all started to pretend

That we were better than everyone else in the world

And so the city was in a swirl

Then something bad commenced

It was malevolence

So tensions were running high and it started a strife

And from there on out no-one was safe again

Not a single human life

There's nothing left anymore

Cause now, the city's ruins are down on the floor

And now, corpses float onto the shore

So now, we think back to the time

When everything was fine

I would again appreciate any comments.

The next song in the 30 song story that I've written. First (?) conversations between Jennifer and Benjamin. "J:" before a stanza/paragraph means that Jennifer is talking, and "B:" means that it is Benjamin who is talking.

9. Confluence

B: Don't be afraid I won't hurt you

I just don't know who you are

What are you doing here?

Where did you get that nasty scar?

B: Is there a way that I can help?

You can kill me if I lie

I know you must be afraid

You have to trust me, please try

J: The fact that you haven't killed me yet

Makes me believe in you I can trust

As I wouldn't be breathing here

If me you wanted to crush

J: I have a lot of things I want to ask

But still the main questions remain

"Who are you, why are you here"

I didn't catch your name

B: I'm here cause I needed a place to stay

I didn't know this place was occupied

I have my own mission to complete

As I need to end this superfluous fight

J: That's all great, but what's your name?

And what's your mission's purpose?

Who do you think is all to blame?

Who do you think lives here in surplus?

B: I'm sorry I forgot to announce it

I'm Benjamin a freedom fighter

Fighting for the city most of the time

Trying to get it back to it's prime

B: I've fought through hell, I've lived through pain

But who are you, why are you here, I didn't catch your name

J: I'm here cause I needed a place to stay

I needed to rest, both head and mind

My name's Jennifer, by the way

I'm fighting on my own, I'm not assigned

J: So what's your plan to save this town?

Do you just go out there and shoot around?

I thought about going to get revenge

At the city troops, my close death I want to avenge

B: Not even close to what I had planned

I have a plan that is grander than grand

I'll try to get both sides to turn against me

So that they would have a common enemy

J: So what are the plans now?

Should we do this together or separately?

B: My mission is too dangerous

so I wouldn't mind if it was just me

J: Okay so our thoughts we'll compile

So we'll stay here for a little while

Okay so our plans we'll compile

So we'll stay here for a little while

Longer

Again I would appreciate any comments. I understand that this song might be harder to follow with the characters talking in turns.

Here is the 8th song from the 30 song story about Benjamin and Jennifer in a civil war.

This is the last song before some songs that will revolve around their own beliefs and their communication and relationship.

Here they meet for the first time, and the 1st meeting isn't that pleasant....

8. Crossing paths

She looked for a place, where she could take a break

Loose herself for one moment, think about what's at stake

For one moment she would like to think straight and relax

And carefully see what gear she's got and what she lacks

He was still hunting for enemies standing on his path

Keeping his cool not succumbing to useless wrath

He had a vision of what to do, didn't know how to execute

Had to draw up a plan of where and when, and to be resolute

They didn't know yet, but their paths would cross

They didn't know what laid ahead

A path filled with joy and grief, really dangerous

Their own homemade small crusades

Jennifer took off her gear from her shoulders so tender

A moment of silence and sleep she'd now greatly prefer

Benjamin had to stop as well to draw up his genious plan

He chose a cellar in a broken house in no man's land

They didn't know yet, but their paths would cross

They didn't know what laid ahead

A path filled with joy and grief, really dangerous

Their own homemade small crusades

He immediately realized he wasn't alone

There was someone already home

He took his gun and raised it up

He was ready to take a shot

And fill someone with boiling hot lead

She was sound asleep

Dreaming an eventful dream

Of someone pointing at her with a gun

Leaving her with no place to run

As she woke up with a cold touch to her forehead............

Again I would appreciate any comments about the story, melody or lyrics.

This is the 7th song of the story. Benjamin is contemplating his next moves and is in awe how things have gone so bad.

7. Preserve

The city is soon only a pile of rubble

It has taken too much beating and trouble

All old buildings are nowadays burning down

And leaving us with their ashes on the ground

Only the sturdy constructions will soon be left

Also they will be gone soon by construction-theft

Soon here will be nothing left worth saving

And we ask ourselves: "What is happening?"

What are we trying to preserve?

Things that we have never deserved?

And so the hope has once again adjourned

As the city beside us continue to burn

He made my way forwards through the rocks and stones

There's nothing left that resembles what he'd call home

This city is now showing big signs of scars and wear

And apparently nothing is left here to spare

What are we trying to preserve?

Things that we have never deserved?

And so the hope has once again adjourned

As the city beside us continue to burn

So this is it for this city

He has made his final decision

He has to end it, now that it has gone too far

And then afterwards leave the door of hope ajar

What are we trying to preserve?

Things that we have never deserved?

And so the hope has once again adjourned

As the city beside us continue to burn

What are we trying to preserve?

Are we afraid, are we too concerned?

As a new page we should now begin to turn

And listen to reason that we once learned

Any comments are again appreciated.
