Illusion Contusion

Description
I wrote this song during a difficult period of homlessness, based on a poem I wrote about the feeling I got in my gut when I watched video of the twin towers falling in silent slow motion.

Lyrics
illusion contusion

(Ooh)
My heart beats steady in the wake of a broken life, yeah.
Drop to the ground, look at my confusion.
I'm being stalked by a walkin' illusion.
I'm a xenotropic man in the wake of a broken island.

Drop to the ground look at my confusion.
I'm being stalked by a walkin' illusion.
I'm concupiscent beside the wake of a broken life, yeah.

Drop to the ground and look at HER confusion.
She's being stalked by a walkin' illusion.
That's it, it's now, it's life, it's death, it's LIFE, yeah.

Holographic people interfere with my broken soul.
Fell to the ground.
Look at our confusion.
We're still stalked by that walkin illusion
Of death, of life, of death, of life, of LIFE.
It's life, it's death, (broken island) it's life, it'd death, it's life.

Chorus:
Help me though I am in a crowd,
being starred down,
By an illusion.
Break walk, give me a talk.
Say alright.
Stop! Turn on the light,
And look for contusions.

Help me though I am in a crowd,
being starred down,
By an illusion.
Break walk, give me a talk.
Say alright.
Stop! Turn on the light,
And look for contusions.
Too-oo-shuns. Yeah.

Verse:
Drop to the ground, look at my confusion.
I'm being stalked by a walkin' illusion.
I'm a xenotropic man in the wake of a broken island.

Drop to the ground look at my confusion.
I'm being stalked by a walkin' illusion.
I'm concupiscent beside the wake of a broken life, yeah.

Drop to the ground and look at HER confusion.
She's being stalked by a walkin' illusion.
That's it, it's now, it's life, it's death, it's LIFE, yeah.

Holographic people interfere with my broken soul.
Fell to the ground.
Look at our confusion.
We're still stalked by that walkin illusion
Of death, of life, of death, of life, of LIFE.
It's life, it's death, (broken island) it's life, it'd death, it's life.

Chorus:
Help me though I am in a crowd,
being starred down,
By an illusion.
Break walk, give me a talk.
Say alright.
Stop! Turn on the light,
And look for contusions.

Help me though I am in a crowd,
being starred down,
By an illusion.
Break walk, give me a talk.
Say alright.
Stop! Turn on the light,
And look for contusions.
Too-oo-shuns. Yeah.

End:
Fell to the ground.
Look at our confusion.
We're still stalked by that walkin illusion
Of death, of life, of death, of life, of LIFE.
It's life, it's death, (broken island) it's life, it'd death,
it's life.

Great song here - really good vocals and
lyrics. Nice production all the way - good use of loops and effects. Your vocals remind me of Kevlar from JOAN back when we worked together years ago.

I like the sound you get here
- lots of interesting stuff going on musically and lyrically. Would like to hear the bass a bit bigger in the mix, but generally a very good production. Some clipping on the vox (??) creates some anxiety (am playing this through 'phones quite loud) - maybe it's the 'phones clipping??
Good song!

Dustin was wearing a Twizzlers t-shirt the night we met. I thought he looked interesting so I asked him to light my cigarette. We talked for all of 15 minutes before we crossed the subject of music, that we both did and would, and so it went. Ther... [see more]
