Lyric by cardigan:

"COMEDIC BREAK . . . Hi all! I wrote this earlier today - before I got such a wonderful shout out - about some of the difficulties I've had working on the songs. Enjoy! And, hopefully, laugh a little. // Iambic Rantameter - A Sonnet of Frustration //Oh Brad the Bard, you fill me with despair // For you words seem to come out of thin air // Fine meter and an esoteric wit // With subtlety and humor they all hit // My mongrel words - they never seem to please // Just one more thing I cannot do with ease // But persevere I will until it's done // And it's announced that someone else has won // For writing is what I desire to do // But songs? HELL NO! A crime novel or two // My hope to meet the Bard will not come true // My Crash Test Dummies discs will have to do // Well, Brad, I'll only know you from afar // But I'll listen to you when I'm in my car"

Don't know where I'm going but I know where I've been / There's nothing between us, our love has worn thin
Years have gone by but the wound is still open / I've tried to move on but at best I'm just copin'
I was broken in the corner and you turned your back on me.
I heard that song again today, the one that reminds me of you.
Can't breathe, can't leave, can't cry
Too many shapes to me / I'm like a compound eye
Time to kick this joint and transmogrify
Never seem to connect but I still can't cry
I want to grab the spotlight, want to be on fleek / She scoffs and it hits me - I'm still a geek.
First-person shooter, fake bullets are flying / Hours have passed? That clock is lying!
Put down the coffee, picked it back up / Thought it was full. It's an empty cup.
CORRECTED: The sun was shining, things were grand / Then life dealt you a bitter hand
The sun was shining, life was grand / Then life dealt you a bitter hand
Congratulations, Hamish and Walker!
He thought he was crazy, imagining things / He blinked his eyes clear and the box sprouted wings!
"It's here!" Santa cried, "My new antipsychotic!" / Even he knew his moods were a little quixotic
"That's it!" Santa cried, "My new antidepressant!" / Or maybe it's something that's even more pleasant
Alt. version: He sees silly faces in bright northern lights / While overripe sugarplums dance through the night
He sees silly faces in bright northern lights / And smooth-talking sugarplums dancing at night
New version edited for consistency: His smile is kind, his coat quite reddish / This old man has a peculiar fetish
New version edited for consistency with Jerry's line: Oven-warm cookies, milk in a glass / Once-nightly visits to his secret stash
He likes oven-warm cookies, cold milk in a glass / And once-nightly visits to his secret stash
His smile is kind, he coat is quite reddish / But this old man has a peculiar fetish
Alt. version: The lights of Christmas morning, merry folk across the land. St. Nick sat at the bar, a double bourbon in his hand.
The morning after Christmas, merry folk across the land. St. Nick sat at the bar, a double bourbon in his hand.
You see the red suit and the elves having fun, but appearances lie, I'm just a beach bum.
I was born in an old shack on Faraway Beach//White sand stretched for miles kissed by water so clear//Warm sun, waves and surfboards, paradise in my reach//Fresh fish on the grill, friends, a lime in my beer
I need to breathe, I need some inspiration. Could it be time to just walk away.
I need to breathe, I need some inspiration. Maybe it's time to walk away.
It glows without end, like my passion for you.
Alternate version: When I was in darkness your hand came down and lifted me to higher ground. You led me away from cold dark night and now I live to share the light.
When I was in darkness your hand came down. You pulled me up to higher ground. We walked away from cold dark night and now I live to spread the light.
The darkness, it pulls me, and promises bliss. I know it’s a lie but I flirt with death’s kiss. I’m desperate to stay here but darkness is stronger. It’s pulling me under. I won’t last much longer.
We made love in a hammock, we traveled through space. Now you're missing in action just like Jerry Brace. :-) Anyone know where he is?
Your beauty, it tempts me. But your words are all lies.
You made me feel like a bright star but all you wanted was my car.
You made me think we were a team. But all it was was a smokescreen.
Okay, not entirely serious: If I had stayed with you for life I would have stabbed you with a knife.
I should have known that you were lyin' when your golden hair was flyin'.
I thought your weirdness made you cool. Thought you were breaking all the rules.
I should have chosen him, now I'm all alone again.
You had me fooled but now I'm coming after you.
You're cute but I will still give you the boot. :-)
Here's a whole chorus (goes with a line I posted earlier): I’m a privilege, not a plaything so you better show respect//I am touchy when I’m angry so you’ve got to come correct//I am loving I’m intense and I am loyal to the bone//You’re a player and a scoundrel. Time’s up, baby, go on home.
Don't think I'm coming back, babe. I'm already over you.
Can't trick me with your charms now cuz I know the man you are.
I'm not coming back, babe. I'm already over you.
I’m a privilege, not a plaything so you better show respect
QUESTION - Are we writing verse 2 next, or the chorus?
You think you did me wrong but I was using you all along.
But before I strike out on my own there's something you should know.
Hi all! I've never heard of a prechorus before. (I do words, not music.) I've done some reading, but I need some more information. If someone out there has a few minutes, could you give me an example of a song with a prechorus? I need a better idea of what we're going for before I come up with ideas. I'd really appreciate it! Have a great weekend, everyone!
I've got no love for a man who can't commit.
My words are like weapons - they will hit.
My words are like weapons and they're going to hit.
I've got no time for a man who can't commit.
You're a no woman man, you're only true to you.
You thought you'd be cruel to me, but you just set me free.
I thought that you were the one but you just wanted some fun.
I thought about a future with you, now I'm glad that we're through.
Echoing rsmithline's Taylor Swift line but not at all serious: you know that you did me wrong so I'll tell you off in my song ;-)
Even though you walked away, you can bet I'll still have my say.
Oh yes I'll fight for this love, even though you took off the gloves.
I was not expecting attack, now I have your knife in my back.
I wanted you for my own, but you cut me down to the bone.
To make you my man I traveled so far. I wanted a future. You wanted my car.
A long time ago I was lonely and damaged. I fell hard for you but you took advantage.
Your hair shone like diamonds. Your aura was smug. Your words were like music. You lied like a rug.
I should have known when you rambled in class. Thank God it's over. Kiss my fat white ass.
Your mother's a head case, your father's a crook. I fell for you line sinker and hook.
Warm light beckons through frosted glass. I stand in the cold, forsaken. I must move on to find my place. Home is not my destination.
Your gentle hands caress my skin. Your eyes don't lie. I can't come in.
My love rejected silently
Linked by fate we travel the same road. Our burden shared does not lessen the load.
Bitterness. Mistrust. Our differences divide us. On opposing sides by history that drives us.
Sometimes in life we're just too far apart. We cannot see what's in each others' hearts,
Like a lonely howl in the distance my heart cries out its sorrow / Our love, once pure, now riven. Without you is my tomorrow
Our love, once lush, now whithered - dead grass on droughted plain / Our house now stands deserted, but it wasn't built in vain
Like a lonely howl in the distance my heart cries out its sorrow / Our love, once pure, now riven. Without you is my tomorrow
CONGRATULATIONS JERRY AND RAY! You both wrote beautiful lyrics and deserve the win!
A mystery you must remain because I can't relive the pain.
Thanks for the win, Brad! Congratulations go out to you as well - you're one of very few people who can correctly pronounce my name!
Will you reveal yourself to me or remain a dark uncertainty?
I'm lost, adrift, a ship alone at sea//My search is for myself. Who could I be?
What will its words, once clear, reveal to me?//Forgotten love? Deep pain? I cannot see.
COMEDIC BREAK . . . Hi all! I wrote this earlier today - before I got such a wonderful shout out - about some of the difficulties I've had working on the songs. Enjoy! And, hopefully, laugh a little. // Iambic Rantameter - A Sonnet of Frustration //Oh Brad the Bard, you fill me with despair // For you words seem to come out of thin air // Fine meter and an esoteric wit // With subtlety and humor they all hit // My mongrel words - they never seem to please // Just one more thing I cannot do with ease // But persevere I will until it's done // And it's announced that someone else has won // For writing is what I desire to do // But songs? HELL NO!

Brad, thanks for the shout out! I'm starting to think I might actually have a career in writing.
A dark uncertainty
Show yourself to me
Pale knives of moonlight descend from the sky//Breathing intensely, a wordless goodbye
Trees in the distance, I see someone there//A lone faceless voice calls "Where are you? Where?"
QUESTION for everyone - What, to you, is a very well-written song? I'm curious about what others admire. The first song that comes to my mind is "Out of the Blue (Into the Fire)" by The The.
Fear my companion, I venture inside//Looking for pain that my past had to hide
Topic: bacteria
Topic: The Marianas Trench and what might live there
Topic: Hipsters and how cliche they are
Topic: a humorous look at suicidal depression
Is It Time To Go?
Time to Go?
Last Call
So that is our story. What do you think? Should we try to save ourselves or just have a drink?
Striving toward the future, we wonder if we'll last.//Do we have a future, or have we begun our past?
Striving toward the future, we wonder if we'll last.//Do we have a future, or does this begin our past?
Despite all the proof some still must deny//Their heads in the sand as flames cross the sky
Still our toil continues, greedily we strive//"We'll triumph" we keep saying - if we stay alive
We forge the event horizon like ants without a soul//Who will we drag down with us into our deep black hole?
But still we keep on going, greedily we strive//"We'll get there" we keep saying - if we stay alive.
For technological advances we desperately must strive//"We'll get there" we keep saying - if we stay alive
Like lemmings we'll dive into the abyss//Hoping to feel interstellar bliss
Like lemmings we'll dive into the abyss//Hoping to feel Elysian bliss
Among satellites and falling stars//I'll watch the destruction from afar
I'll rise up into outer space//Escape the destruction of the human race
We dream of life in space//But we're rooted to the ground//We want to know what's out there//We're glad you came 'round
Racing 'round the curve of Mars//With satellites and falling stars//From all I know I have to flee//Escape from you, escape from me.
Racing 'round the curve of Mars
