A progressive rock song I wrote last week for fun. Just the lyrics of course, not the music, because that's dead hard. Although I play the keyboards so I could make up a little tune for it. Here we go...


RELIC OOZE

The candles are lit
And the silver wax begins to slide.
Not much else to say about that.
But it makes the candle seem brighter.

There are many ways to organise recent events,
But I use one not known to others;
Useless to monsters and their mollycoddling mothers.
Better pull down the blinds.

Laid back on an unusual bed
A thick pillow supports my head,
As I turn pages not previously turned before.
I looked left at the cuckoo clock, wound incorrectly.
I hope a visitor arrives once more.
He said he could, but would he?
Should he?

My hands keep a-shaking
I canít decipher these ludicrous images
The candlelight dims, too afraid to relight it
The ornaments on a shelf above seem to laugh
Oh, how they laugh and I laugh too
The person responsible, I canít see who

Oops, the door appears locked.
Iíd better break the chain before it rusts.
I sense that heís coming; he gave me his trusts,
Heíll teach me to fight back against myself.

Because I substituted reason for darkness
Darkness too thick to break.
And the remains of my brains cry out
In a jealous and mean-spirited ache.
He has arrived, but Iím no longer listening.


Don't ask me what it's about. It has a meaning, but it's very complicated and you'll probably all be baffled - to be honest, I'm not even sure of it's meaning tongue

If it were a real song I would make it last ten and a half minutes roughly. I can see it being that long.

Well, if it was a sea it would be a very dark and deep one but it's pretty cool all the same cool
I think Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam once said something along the lines of that people shouldn't try and ask the writers meaning behind the lyrics of a certain song but use their own imagination and I think that was a wise statement.

Get me out of here, let me get away,
Let me go from here, get me out away,
Get me out of here, let me get away,
Let me out of here, let me go today...

So, if you don't write the melody yourself will you try and get Beyonce or Girls Aloud to sing the song? grin
