OfTheGorge

Greetings!

This is a song from the album In The Earth I Will Be Free about the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge here in Taos.

lyrics

There’s a scar run north to south
In the land of the so called free
Our mother’s beautiful scar so fierce as rock
Bridging land and memory of human suffering

Sits a bridge of bending each side of this scar
Where those who’ve been pushed too far
Release themselves in the womb of the Earth
A place of great beauty and the suffering of mankind

Sitting at a sacred shakra point of our mother
The cries are heard of those who are ready
To hear the verse of the damned
No one gets out of here alive anyway

Of the gorge

Greetings!

I present yet another great song from probably my absolute favorite band Amorphis.

lyrics:

No longer I was breathing
No more bleeding
Inside the urn
Under a soil and black stone
Under a soil and black stone

And I was listening
And felt no pain
To the sunrise to east
I’ll leave my grief

To the stars shine
Casting my eyes by the long nights
Blessed I was
To rest then
Inside the urn
Under a soil and black stone

Soil upon me
So fragile
As a veil
Without secrets
The staring
Space so wide

Greetings!

I’m proud to present you guys with a brand new single out now on Circle Of Death Records.

lyrics:

Somewhere within intertwined
Is the sweet lady so divine
Hidden beyond night sky
Within a realm of light

Answers come forth like the spring
We are the leaves of the tree
Inside the currents of the soul
Our dream we shall unfold

And when awake from dream
Beneath within we’ll be
Within her arms once more
Till twilight calls us back to shore

lyrics:

I’m not trying to out do anyone
I’m just trying to kill the pain
By booze, drugs, some fun and makin a little love
and getting rid of the lie of me
It’s draggin me down
This misery
but it’s the only friend of me
In the end I’ll be in the ground you see
In the earth I will be free
I don’t hate myself or my life
I just hate these human ways
Letting go’s the only thing misery’s telling me to do
I’d like to thank the human race for opening my eyes
and getting rid of this big fat lie

Stolen Soul

Greetings!

Tonight I’m shining a light on Stolen Soul. This is one I wrote and was well received in the Steemit Song Writer’s challenge that was put together by @meno early last year. After I wrote and performed it, @thomasrobertgent and @davidfar wanted to further flesh out the tune, so @thomasrobertgent hit the drums on it and @davidfar laid down a bassline and mixed and mastered the whole thing. I myself wrote the music, lyrics, played the guitars and vocals. The song is basically about how most of our problems stem from our own failures.

lyrics:

born into a world full of hope
bereft after a million years of sorrow
can I replace what was stolen from me
can we find a better way to be
ask my stolen soul
find my peace taken far below
who could it be to cause this misery
could it be the thief was me
(repeat)
hollowed out by years of self serving lies
I stand a shell of spite against passing time
my hope lays dead in the ruins of my heart
I’ll find my peace in the only thing that’s real
death
ask my stolen soul
find my peace taken far below
who could it be to cause this misery
could it be the thief was me
(repeat)

blessed entropy

Greetings!

I’m feeling under the weather this week having developed Pneumonia. So I’m posting this track about how we fall apart as the whole universe is doing all the time. Entropy, the only true constant in existence.

lyrics:

I’d like to play with you my friend
In the end and in the right place and time
But lately I’ve been underground
Hasn’t been just the right place and time

We are only falling apart
As the whole universe would be
Never fight this blessed entropy
As it defines what we never will become
Never will become
What we never will become Oohhh oohhhhh oh
What we never will become
