Hi All (:


Hi :)
So I'm new to this community and livejournal in general so would appreciate any tips or anything (including friends cos this place is looooonley atm haha). Anyway, this little song is about my best friend, we went through a lot and he means the world to me but when I wrote it I wasn't exactly in the best place emotionally haha. So yeah, feedback is love, but I'm only fifteen so if anyone tells me my view of the world is naive i shall cry. I joke, I joke, enjoy :)


Always Here
And baby, did you get caught up in your lies
Did you fall across the skies
And hit the moon while waiting
Your bright light is slowly fading
Tell me, did you stand and watch it fall
Did you know that you’d lose it all
Baby you knew your mind was made up
Never thought you were one to trade up

I opened up, you closed the door
Baby tell me what you’re waiting for
It’s too late to say you’re sorry
I’m not listening anyway
All those little lies you spun, with everything you’d say
And I wish that I could tell you, that you’re the reason why
I can’t let nobody in every time I cry
I’m sick of all the hurting, I always take the blame
It’s hard to change the ending, when every fights the same
I know that we could fix this; I just wish that you’d try
Baby hold your breath if you’re not done with spinning lies

And tell me, is this how you want it to be
Baby, tell me why you couldn’t see
The last thread was breaking
I stopped giving but you kept taking
And I know that, I never listened hard
I was bruised but you were scarred
Baby I never did mean it
Just wish you could’ve seen it

And now we’re falling way too fast
Lost the future, forgotten the past
We’re holding on but it won’t last

I opened up, you closed the door
Baby tell me what you’re waiting for
It’s too late to say you’re sorry
I’m not listening anyway
All those little lies you spun, with everything you’d say
And I wish that I could tell you, that you’re the reason why
I can’t let nobody in every time I cry
I’m sick of all the hurting, I always take the blame
It’s hard to change the ending, when every fights the same
I know that we could fix this; I just wish that you’d try
Baby hold your breath if you’re not done with spinning lies

And baby, I know that you do care
But this really isn’t fair
I can’t believe you when you say
I don’t want you to walk away
So tell me, will this be the end
I’m losing my best friend
Baby just know I won’t let go
Know I’m sorry, please just know
That I’m not giving up on all that we’ve got
You can leave but I swear that I’m not

I know that we could fix this; I just wish that you’d try
Baby hold your breath if you’re not done with spinning lies

A Song Torn From My Archives

Hey so im new here my name is mike.

Wide Open

Why do we always do what the world wants us too
Pushin coercin us to do what we know we shouldnt do
Fightin then fallin and loosin we go where we shouldnt go
And finally we're gone so far we've forgotten what we aughta do

cause im torn___wide open
im torn____wide open for the world to see me as i am
emotional and alone

Why do we always find too late that we've gone too far
Pushed to the point where we have one choice and its way to hard
fought and we fell and lost givin this one way out
well i've paid my debt in full and all i wanna do is shout__shout out loud

cause im torn__wide open
Im torn__wide open for the world to see me as i am
emotional and alone

Well Im by myself now looking back at you and I
I see you with him and i cant explain what it is that i feel inside
it hurts so bad and u dont even seem to care one bit
I gotta move on move on but its gonna tear me_ wide open

cause you tore___ me wide open
cause u tore___me wide open for the world to see me as i am
emotional and alone
im torn__ wide open

(so ya that was not my first song written but prolly the one i think is the best when u add the guitar and violin and such to it. this one was written just before i came here to lethbridge so about a year ago. its very much a slower played song)

hope u enjoy
hasta luego

Tents

Hey I'm new here.  My name's Rob. This is a dub song i wrote.

You stare up and down the street as you say
"Where will we go today?"
Torn maps and broken wind sheilds show me the way
"Lets just go until were lost again"

The smooth silent turning of rubber and steel
And the growl of the engine below
The long dark spinnin circle of asphalt
Becons to me as it shows me the way back home
______________________________
______________________________

Sleeping in tents with camp fire lights
As it was log wood burning through the nights
We got the stereo blasting old sublime
Just singin along to that funky bass line

Said a man could find his soul
If he just opened his eyes and looked for it
Oh it's not that hard get away
When theres nothing to get away from.
__________________________________
___________________________________

Just a little get away
Oh i wish it would stay this way
Just a little get away
Oh i wish it would stay this way
___________________________
___________________________

Crowded parties and lights turned low
Reggae rhythm and rude boy shows
Camp fire nights and acoustic jams
Greatest times i'd ever had
______________________________
Just a little get away
Oh i wish it would stay this way
Just a little get away
Oh i wish it would stay this way
____________________________
And now by ourselves back home
Wasting our time on nothing
Wasting away in our bedrooms
Thinkin about all those times

Times we were alive
Drivin down the 95
With no ending in our minds
Just the road in our open eyes.

Just a little get away
Oh i wish it would stay this way
Just a little get away
Oh i wish it would stay this way.

I haven't posted in a while, so I thought I would.

Lie to you

Looking in your eyes is like facing the firing squad, and I’m just too young to die.
I’m not ready for that white dress and a diamond and 28 cart gold cell.
And the words you end every phone call with, tear my heart two
I wish I could really mean “I love you too”

But I lie to you, every time I smile
But I lie to you, every time I laugh
And I lie to you every time we go to bed
I’m not dreaming of you
And I lie to you every time I say I’m happy
And I lie to you every time I say I want us
And I just lied to you… when I said I do

Walking towards you was like walking into a life sentence, and I don’t want to part from my freedom
And my beautiful white dress, and pearls make for beautiful expensive prison garb
And the words you mouth for everyone to see, tear my heart in two
I wish I could really mean “I love you too”

But I lie to you, every time I smile
But I lie to you, every time I laugh
And I lie to you every time we go to bed
I’m not dreaming of you
And I lie to you every time I say I’m happy
And I lie to you every time I say I want us
And I just lied to you… when I said I do

And as we walk through those doors
For every one to see
We’re no longer me and you
We’ve become something more
And I can’t help feel
That I just killed something inside
I can’t help but think of the life I left behind
And then I hear you whisper those three words in my ear and it tears me in two
Because I wish I could really mean “I love you too”

I'm really interested in the whole Zapatista movement/ revolution and the whole thing really excites me because... for someone like me to see what they're doing over there (successfully not to mention) makes me really feel like history isn't over yet. So I wrote a poem about Zapata who lived between the late 1800's and early 1900's in Mexico and fought to end tyranny and state theft.

Doubt anyone reads this whole poem entry thing here anymore, but incase anyone ever stumbles upon this page here ya go...

"Following Morelos to the Sun"

Zapata fought for the land
With arms of open hands
To secure the precious waters
To reign freedom on the sands
Oh, the villages and people
Yes, they'll live to see tomorrow
And their rights will be restored
And there'll be no need for sorrow

Riding through Morelos
Zapata heads to the sun
Leaving a trail of liberation
This war is anything but done

We'll one day taste the freedom
No one has ever tasted
And we'll make up for all the centuries
Mankind has sadly wasted

All that's lost within the rivers
Will wash up upon the banks
And the streams will be rebuilt
Zapata shall be thanked
The tomatoes, rice and maize
Beans, potatoes rise in plains
As the farmer grabs his shovel
And smiles to greet the day

Riding through Morelos
Zapata heads to the sun
Leaving a trail of liberation
This war is anything but done

We'll one day taste the freedom
No one has ever tasted
And we'll make up for all the centuries
Mankind has sadly wasted

"Stealing Resources"

Stolen land
Patents robbing the farmers
Right from the hands
Picked the greenest gardens
Packaged waters
Manufactured slaughter
Higher acidity
The past hiding in cities
Memories of life
Paintings of all that was living
Sitting on all that was lost


"Pretty Asian Girl"

Lightly tanned skin
Beauty shined out from within
Soft lips to melt a heart
Black hair straight at the ends
Pretty eyes which left numbness
Ideas of Buddhism
Ideas of peace
Each piece so aesthetically constructed
Each smile so simply shaped
Each motion worth honor
Each word...
Just a net to catch this love
chrome

It's been awhile since I've posted. Here's something I've been working on. The music has come out perfect, but it still needs some minor tweaking. It would probably help if I was a pretty singer ;-p

At All
Can we say we ever really tried, to do more than just fight?
We’re grown ups, but we act just like kids.
How am I suppose to react when I hear everyone talking
And you never have anything nice to say

A time comes when enough is enough
I’m giving you one last try
before I say goodbye

I don’t want to fight
I don’t want to scream
I’m begging you to say anything

Because I don’t want to hate you
But I don’t know how to love you
Every time I try; a part of me dies
How am I suppose to live like this

And I don’t want to hurt you
But you won’t let me in
I tried to be enough for you
Why can’t I see you’re not enough for me
At all… at all…

I don’t want to be angry, but you make me everything but happy
How childish we’ve become, we don’t even know how to love
One another without hurting

A time comes when enough is enough
I’m putting my foot down
I’m learning to stand my ground

I don’t want to fight
I don’t want to scream
I don’t want you to say anything

Because I don’t want to hate you
But I don’t know how to love you
Every time I try; a part of me dies
How am I suppose to live like this

And I don’t want to hurt you
But you won’t let me in
I tried to be everything for you
Why can’t I see you’re not enough for me
At all… at all…

Can we say we ever really tried….
At all… at all…

Some Newer Poems

"(No Title)"

Desires...
Why do you punish me?
My friend within is peace
My friend within is love
I close my eyes
As I fall into forests of the past
And wade in a water hole of secrecy
For where man can't find me
I hold in my hands rest
Flowers of the floor
Stand muted and waiting
For the next rain cloud
To never again fall in love
To never again cry
To never again wish
In that place of lost direction

"Screaming In Space"

So naive and playful
Stirring surfaces that serve no danger
Screaming for new ways
But all those ears were deafened
By that unwillingness to conclude
Only finding joy in revolt
That logic was pinned down
As the sound became a circus
Like a blissful fool parading oppression
This is screaming in space

"Mind Numbing Social Gatherings"

There are so many paths to tread
With so many consequences to taste
Risking so much everyday
Just to reassure moderate success
With such undeniable failure
Standing lost in this overdefined world
Will this chase ever end?
Growing bored with each tackle
Weary with each loss
Bored with each second
Sighs pour from the heart
Friends hurt friends

"Another Hellish Day"

Crippled by jealousy
These feet have lost motion
And this mind is in the dark
Stomache is tightening with each thought
Oh God, death seems too easy
No more, just make it stop
Please, make it go away
Mercy, save me from this hole
Sleep should do the trick
It's always a temporary escape
And like fleeing from a massacre
Never quite feeling so safe
Selfish is a taunt of hypocrisy
There's no shame in wanting out

"Pool of Mistakes"

Life's a cloud
Raining drops of dreams
The most meaningless rituals
Can build such beautiful things
Lakes and rivers
To oceans and streams
But sometimes the drops don't drip
Quite like they seem
Sometimes a down pour can occur
On a city street
It washes up all the dirt
Flows to the gutters and sinks
These are the bad decisions
These are poorly made choices
Lightless pools of water
Rising up without voices

My Female Child

I've got to retain a loose grip as I allow you to leave
I'm going to converse my feelings for you
though, in your mind, you're already aware
I recall my thoughts of your comparison to an angel encompassed in pink fabric so soft and not too hot, not too cold
You've had me wrapped around your phalange since your birth, which was September 19, 1987

Your aesthetically pleasing child from the outside inward
hunt your dreams with cunning but always know the directions, purchased or printed, that'll allow you to come home again
Go on, fight everybody
But to me you're aware you'll always be my female child

New song(RAW)

lil something that i just had to write today jus to get it off my mind and to try to put into words what some of us feel sometimes when we try to help someone and get burnt in the process when they themselves do nothin...its raw so it hardly rhymes and stuff..very diff from my previous material but tell me what you think!

Fight(soldier)

Verse1
You look at me all jaded
Defeated and bruised you look to me for comfort
But all I can do is watch
So close I can feel you but you’re just out of reach

Verse2
Tried fighting your battle with you
Seemed like I was da only one takin the shots
You could’ve said anything yeah
But I was left hangin there trying to shield your pain

Pre-Chorus
I can’t help you no more,
If u ain’t gonna close the door
Tell them no more
Gotta stand your ground

Chorus
You gotta take the stand,
Do what’s right and amend
Stand up soldier and fight,
follow da guiding light
Do whatever it takes babe,
no matter if your heart breaks
You gotta set youself free,
you’ll never be lonely

Verse3
Why you so scared to release
All the pressure and the emotions that you feel,
Just like edges of a sword
Use words for damage; make ‘em listen till you’re heard

Verse4
And when words fail you
Don’t you dare give up, theres so much more u can do
Your life’s on da line soldier
When da war’s over, its gonna be either them or you

Pre-chorus

Chorus
