Nomurah! Posted April 23, 2008 Share Posted April 23, 2008 [COLOR="HotPink"][SIZE="1"]This is just (some of) the lyrics on our last album we put out. It was a concept album, that concerned several things, mostly personal. But the story tells of an angel, a sailor, and a little girl, and the journey that they all share. I'll try and find every single word to piece together the story as it was written, for you guys. You may notice some similarities between the lyrics, and films. I get inspired, by quotes from my favorite films. (Alot of my lyrics don't rhyme by the way, I feel they don't have to... I'm writing to get my point across, but at times rhyming is okay.) Only a few are here, the significant ones, I suppose.[/SIZE][/COLOR] [CENTER][SIZE="1"][B]Spontaneously Combusted Church Van... Speak of the Devil[/B] The ocean waves glide along The sun's gleaming in your eyes There's a gate in the sky It closes as he falls out Into the Sea below. Onto shore, he coughs And walks into field there's a house, oh so close But his suffering, is much too great his eyes open to a small boy peering over him "And both of you knew you'd found a new friend" The bond was only written in stone When you shed a tear at the sight... of his broken wings What a memory.... Wake up. [B]Those Pants Belong to David Hasselhoff, Give Them Back[/B] Now you're awake, Now listen to me We've had some time to think, think it over And the future awaits, but it doesn't wait that statue sitting on his pedestal fist to his face, wasting away his life, concrete runs through those stone veins The price of having only a brain... ... it must be horrible with no feeling. The portrait on the wall, its eyes are placed on him He never looks over to take it in He thought of his life, and what he had seen Hoping for a puppeteer, or a family were his dreams a man passed him one day... looked him in the eye. The statue's train of thought crashed. No therapist, or friend in sight. So this is what the man said: [B]3. It Takes A Milion Grains of Sand to Make the Patch of Dirt You're Falling in[/B] I don't actually remember these lyrics right now xD... so I'll have to find where I wrote them and learn them... I'll do that later. :] [B]4. A Wristwatch[/B] The sun couldn't break my gaze to heavens when I asked to be saved with no reply... and alternate seems just fine How can I help this time when I can't even save myself I manifest myself with lyrics like tell-tale story books inked in blood a moment suspended in time, outside of my mind.. And I'm praying for myself. Hallelujah, and can I be saved twice when he only died once will he pray for his son to make it home, before nightfall comes Hallelujah. [B]5. Life Is Like A Seventies Horror Movie [/B] How odd, the thoughts of one man And what he tries to hide Though he seems to be honest, he tells you "I met a sailor once.... he said drowning... was like going home." But did you really believe him? Because after a while, wouldn't you expect it all to be a lie? Drowning is of suffering nature But its the man that chooses to let go. "Man's reach exceeds his grasp.. Man's grasp exceeds his nerve." Today... I watched my ship sink and walked away This is not the bed that I've made. [B]6. There's No Hope For Saint Elmo This Time[/B] Today, I let my ship sink and so I swam away This is not the bed that I've made. ["No one ever said love was easy, but here I am. Someone bring me the paramedics, we've got a case of broken hearts."] The angel... the angel lost its wings Its praying for father to come The sickness lives on inside he prays for it to go away And the schools burn and the towns all fall and the church stands alone "God bless Shiloh." And Helena raging on inside So, Angel witnesses war. These towers weren't the first to go. Are you listening? [B]9. Janey Briggs' Got A Gun Again[/B] Loving Child, precious child sink into this bloom of words and scars helping those, and loving all and then lashing out on yourself guardian angels try to help but you can't see them lurking in the night feather by feather, you close your eyes you dream of fields of notes you wake up, right as the orchestra turns and goes for the juggular smile, it was only a dream, but not for long as you can't find home and the north star is nowhere to be found you loved so much, and helped so many but how did it help you in the end? Father, mother, are you proud? You've gotten what you wanted again... And the north star is nowhere to be found... [B]10. You're Older Than My Really Old Blue Nokia Phone[/B] It seems my demons have caught up with me Whether or not, they're in my mind I'm sure God is listening And I hope he has the time.. I found an angel in the fields of white And I can't decide if he's going to be alright just fine. Couldn't you think of your children Before you went off and died Didn't you hear your parent's knowingly aching cries I don't know if you're a bad man But who am I to criticize? Wings were broken, they told him he was worthless his faith had been taken, he said "It just wasn't worth it" His eyes slowly rolled back and an orchestra began to play and I heard a little girl's cries "Let Daddy Out Of That Box!" [B]11. Goodbye to All Those Memories (I wish there was dramatic theme music playing every time I walked out that door, but sadly there's not) (I also wish this was the longest song title ever, but guess again, it's not even close, most likely) (IDK) (Wiki It)[/B] On my way back from memory lane I met a little girl in a museum by a statue she asked it if he had seen her father a dead sailor his ship sank and he didn't make it she said " a little boy with wings told me to come here" she turned around and I recognized her I asked her what she was doing here she didn't reply she never replied and I saw the statue wink at me as if he knew what was wrong as if he knew all along that I wasn't alive that the guardian angel was right and I should have swam away but my conscience was killing me too much to breathe And I couldn't escape the fate that I made This is the bed I'll sleep in This is the bed that I never made Guardian angel like an imaginary friend I once had, but I'll never see again Where did you go? I remember when I was a boy... I mended your wings when you fell in between a war I'll never forget those words you said to me "Dear my friend, thank you for being there for me when Heaven felt like it was floating away" but the worst feeling I ever had was when I couldn't turn to her and I say I love her I love you, darling.. God bless that statue, as it looked my daughter in the eye Death leaves a pain no one can heal But Love leaves a memory no one can steal Dear my friends.. Thanks for being there for me When heaven felt like it was floating away This is the end.[/SIZE][/CENTER] Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
