gliding-song version


A few weeks back i added the poem ‘gliding’ to my blog. Today, you should be able to hopefully hear it as the song it was supposed to be in the first place. Unfortunately, WordPress wouldn’t let me  upload it directly to the blog (my guess is that you need a premium account, but I honestly don’t know why), so i’m busy uploading it to my facebook page as I write this. So if you follow the link, you should be able to find the video and like the facebook page for ‘thoughtofvg’ if you so wish. If you can’t immediately see it, try looking in the videos section of the page. At the time of writing this post, it will be the only video there.

I hope you all enjoy it, and if there is some difficulty seeing the video for whatever reason, please tell me in the comment box – and of course please comment and criticise as much as you like!

I finished a song for once! – Gliding


I did it!

It may have taken a long time, but finally I found the lyrics for a song I’ve been working on. And by found, I don’t mean I always had them sitting about on a piece of paper that I stupidly misplaced, but found where they were hiding in my head.

It seems wrong to me to say that lyrics are ‘thought’ up. Then it sounds like they are forced out in a desperate attempt to finish off something half-heartedly before the end of a strict deadline.

But no. Saying that I found them works much better. It makes those words seem more animate, more meaningful.

And that, means waiting for the words to be found rather than force words onto a song that didn’t want them.

So why the long boring bit before I actually get round to typing the lyrics onto this post? Well, bluntly put, I’m useless at putting lyrics to a song, or vice-versa. This time I have both, and am (relatively) happy with both bits, although they need refining.

Hopefully, If I can work out how, I might post the actual song on here soon, but for now enjoy the lyrics to ‘Gliding’.

Gliding

.

Gliding

In floating streams

Flying

To where I want to be.

And wishes

Are hard to take

But don’t stop dreaming

Or those wishes might just break.

.

Take me where you’re flying,

I want to find my purpose there,

To you it is no mystery

What lies beyond horizons,

You see me as the speck I am

And I see you the same

But I’m the one still dreaming

That I was gliding there with you.

.

Burning

In passionate desire

For freedom

The fire towers higher.

Hopeful

The time is coming near

Grateful

The path is coming clear.

.

Take me where you’re flying,

I want to find my purpose there,

To you it is no mystery

What lies beyond horizons,

You see me as the speck I am

And I see you the same

But I’m the one still dreaming

That I was gliding there with you.

.

I’m gliding

On the wing.

I’m gliding

There with you.

I Write The Headlines


They swallow my every word

As if it made some sense,

It’s printed in the papers now,

My false knowledge dispensed.

I write the headlines,

Make the news for you,

It really doesn’t matter

How much of it is true.

We have Contravertial stories now,

These twisted tales will sell;

Money is what we  care about,

Not the stories that we tell.

I write the headlines,

I hope that you enjoy,

One day you might realise

Just how much that i’ve destroyed.

institution


I haven’t written in ages…I do have the excuse of being on holiday but nevertheless I do feel bad about neglecting you guys.  And a prior apology to ‘pouringmyartout’ for still not writing a happy piece. Sorry!

Institution

Teach them lies

Infect their minds

Come inside

It’s warm inside

We are the institution

We are your one solution

Your death leads to salvation

Your life to fuel a burning nation

You can blank our nation’s strife

We taught them lies

Infected their minds

with teachings of a different kind

Its warm inside…

 

 

please note i have nothing at all against religion, only the institution and structures behind many religions. I have no intention to offend.

The simplest things


The simplest things are hard to say;

Always expecting something worse

Than ever happens in reality.

But that won’t stop me being afraid;

As if that passing car’s my hearse

Come early to take me ‘way from reality

 

And every day that you become

Closer to me

You’re finding out I’m not as good

As you thought me to be

And I feel i’m not so far away

from you leaving me

Not turning round to say goodbye

As I drift out to sea

 

The simplest things are hard to say;

But left unsaid the words corrupt

And meddle with my troubled head.

So now I dream of one way trains;

And pointless words and faking laughs

I’m taken ‘way from where I felt misled

 

And every day that you become

Closer to me

You’re finding out I’m not as good

As you thought me to be

And I Feel i’m not so far away

from you leaving me

Not turning round to say goodbye

As I drift out to sea

We will never be the same.


You see the world in different ways,

I sometimes wonder what you see

In colours, in wonders, in them,

In goodness, in evil, in me?

 

My dreams are not your dreams

And we will never be the same

My thoughts are not your thoughts

And we will never be the same

But what if I understood your mind

For one brief moment,

Just a day?

 

Where I see scenes of black and grey

Do you see fire and jealousy?

Is it I who has the passion

Or you who has the flame?

 

My dreams are not your dreams

And we will never be the same

My thoughts are not your thoughts

And we will never be the same

But what if I understood your mind

For one brief moment,

Just a day?

 

I will never know just what you think

But while I slumber my thoughts wonder;

Who’s wrong? Who’s right? Who cares

What we even think?

 

My dreams are not your dreams

And we will never be the same

My thoughts are not your thoughts

And we will never be the same

But what if I understood your mind

For one brief moment,

Just a day?

clear mind


Clear your troubled mind

Leave your thoughts behind

Your journey will be hard

But I’m here with you tonight

 

It wasn’t long ago that I was in your place

A lost soul wondering across an empty plain

Where no one smiles

Where no one knows

The hardships you have faced

 

Take me by the hand. Learn to fly before you walk.

With two feet on the ground-walk before you fly

You might never find a way

You might always hide away

From grasping what is yours to take

 

Clear your troubled mind

Leave your thoughts behind

Your journey will be hard

But I’m here with you tonight
