Condemned to be Alone



 Genre: Art Rock

Get Flash to see this player.

A song that I have been playing around with for a year, I've finally produced a version I like and I can actually now move on pheuww;)
A tale of a cynical man who visits a travelling evangelist with the idea of changing his not-so-nice ways, is he swayed?, is this autobiographical?... enough said.

I know the dark destroys the heart
I'm not too blind to see
Creeping spire approaching fire
please assist me simply
So show me your reality
I'm an open book indeed
Maybe there's another way
my cynicysms rife
My smiles become a grimace
the story of my life
Or I'm damned to be alone again

Men are chanting exuberant
Bells awaken the dreariness
Preparations for everyone
and you

Enchanting calls we gather round
The stage is set they arrive in droves
As the man in sequins takes command
of you

Oh to the righteous son
Who we need
To light the fires
in me
We give ourselves completely

One by one they fall at a touch
Convinced his power is Godliness
the gathered mas is taken in
but not you

The wizened woman, the lepers son
are bowing down to the sequined one
No one noticed your disappearance
from view

Oh to the righteous one who deceives
igniting fires that tease
this is not my path or belief
so please

Oh to the righteous one
who they need
to set their fires
and please
Not give into mystique

And so the dark destroyed the heart
I know it personally
Though I applaud your convictions
they don't agree with me
I guess I'll take another breath
from my leap of faith
And appreciate the variety
piled upon my plate
or am I condemned to be alone
am I?

Krazy komposition. Imaginative and daring. Art rock, yes indeed. A topic of some interest to me.

A big production number.

Some songs take forever to get right.

This sounds like it could be a part of a rock opera.

Music is my passion, it dragged my through the good times and the bad, especially the teen years. Now that I compose my own it is an avenue for self expression, sometimes a means of dealing with something on my mind, or simply for the shear enjoyment... [see more]
