Yer, been writing a ludicrous amount of lyrics lately after not really writing any for so long.
Also working on some music to match them, of course, though I'll get to that when it's... presentable.
Anyhow! Lyrics.

Er... Quite a few. Tongue

Quote
welcome to the noise, me you'll recognize
I'm the one that you thought you had destroyed
I'm no longer weak, now I live again
challenge me and see, I have found my zen
take this one to heart, ways we soon will part
I will be alone, you'll go crawling home
nothing more to say, always been this way
I just couldn't see, you were scared of me

hey! can you hear me? I don't think you see, you will never be
hey! can you hear me? I don't think you see, you will never be me

you will never hear, truth you'll always fear
all the things I say, you just throw away
I can break your mind, there's no compromise
now it is the time, you'll be driving blind
take this one to heart
take this one to mind
ways we soon will part
you've always been blind

ignorant and stubborn you are set in your ways
don't know where you learned them and you're always too late
there's nothing there to stop you but your own goddamn mind
and something tells me that your logic's one of a kind

once you've shown your flaws, twice you've doublecrossed
thrice you have been caught, four times I have not
fallen for your plans, as you wring your hands
I just laugh and watch, four times you've been caught!
you remember me, and now you can see
I'm not what I was, I am more because
I have died by you, and I tried to do
what I couldn't do, now I will stop you

hey! can you hear me? I don't think you see, you will never be
hey! can you hear me? I don't think you see, you will never be me

bit by bit and drop by drop you're losing your face
something else has come and now I see it will replace
that which you have lost and that which you never knew
there's nothing there behind your eyes it's all just a ruse

I control the noise, me you'll recognize
I'm the one that you never did destroy
I am strong with rage, now I live again
challenge me and see, I have found my zen
take this one to heart, ways we soon will part
I will be alone, you'll go crawling home
nothing more to say, always been this way
now I clearly see, you're terrified of me


And more... this one I actually wrote first:

Quote
immature ravings from the one who knows best
screaming bout things that he doesn't know yet
and as they sit in the sidelines and place their bets
he watches like a hawk and puts their minds to the test
"YOU!" he screams at the man in the suit,
"you laugh and criticize but does your life have a use?"
"please tell me, sir, enlighten my mind!"
"have you ever lived at all or did you leave it behind?"

and as the crowd stares on, the man just screams
about everything he hates and everything he's seen
and as he shouts and yells, no one can tell
if he's doing it to live or if his anger just sells

"YOU! with the smirk on your face!"
the man points and shakes, in a psychotic mental state
with his words he beats the smile, from the old man's face
and then he screams at the crowd, "TODAY IS THE DAY!"
something snaps inside, and the man goes insane
he screams and yells and vents, but he knows not who to blame
all that he knows, cannot be said
a bastardized expression of the world inside his head!

he runs from the crowd, he runs from them all
he knows they'll never understand, they'll laugh and they'll crawl
and as I run from the crowd, as I run from them all
I ask myself, what do I do, when I trip and fall?
now the crowd has caught up, and they point and they laugh
they're calling forth my demons, gotta get away fast
but why escape when I can scream and get it all out?
a useless breaking point, from within or without

break for your enemies
die for yourself
the only thing that's stopping you from suicide
is your ambitions; mind on the shelf

burn, destroy, and crush it all
forever
lay the truth beneath the ground
and live a happy life


Aaaand the last one-- yay for angst  :king:

Quote
Metaphors come crashing down, I don't know where to start
I've tried it all, I've failed it all, I'm tearing the facade apart
too much shit that everyone can take, but it's ruining my life somehow
there's gotta be something wrong with me, but when do I find out, and how?

I know you're there, I know you're listening, even if it's not really fair
cause when I spill the truth, and when I break the wall, I want someone to care
all these metaphors and lyrics and words, they don't mean a god damn thing
and when you're this desperate to get it all out, you either run and hide or come clean

I'm not insane
I'm not to blame
for all the things they've said
but what is my fault
is the way I react
and keep everything
inside my head--

it's like a film has covered my entire life, a membrane I can't break through
I've been desensitized to everything around me, I really don't know what to do
I just wait and watch through this film of glass, as my life plays out on a reel
I don't know why things just pass me by, I just want to feel

beneath the exterior I'm always thinking bout things that can't be changed
embarassment, frustration and regret; three best 'friends' I have come to hate
I just wish that joy didn't wear off; I wish my happiness could stay
but after it all, when all is said, it all seems so mundane

my breaking point has come and gone, those things I had to say
I couldn't solve my problems, couldn't get it out, couldn't do it another way
but this is not my final answer, this is not my final piece
there's some things that I just can't do, to lay my mind at ease

(this next bit is done with even space between syllables, that's why it all kinda...runs on)
all these terms they use and the reaction to confession that I just can't understand why I can't say all these things-- call me what you want I'm fine with what I am but I can't stand to keep a part of me away from those who would just laugh and bring my THREE BEST FRIENDS to the surface of my mind to pull me down and drag me off to that damn place where I can only write and scream about these things they're in my life and I can't stand to see them please just let me get back to my life just set me free-- please just set me free


I have some more, though most of them are currently unfinished-- I may post 'em when they're done. Smiley

(wow that was a long post)

And some more...



Quote
you'll be in no position to throw us around
when our feet stamp your face a foot into the ground
you're no match for the ones you raised
on your filthy fake faith and your twisted ways

you think you're above us but you're down on your knees
you're talking like a lord but you're acting like a sheep
well you've lost your sheppard to the river of time
it washed away your brain but it won't take mine

look at yourself, standing tall and proud
as you raise your hands to a silent crowd
you tell us to listen, you tell us to obey
but you see the riot coming from a mile away

you're in no position to throw us around
as our feet stamp your face a foot into the ground
you're no match for the ones you raised
on your filthy fake faith and your twisted ways

shocked, bruised and battered from the vicious rampage
the tables have turned, and now you're locked up in our cage
your 'nobility' was nothing but percieved and useless worth
and now we've come to free ourselves, to break the madman's curse


Quick note, a hilarious line came to mind when I was thinking how to end the last verse: "and now we've come to free ourselves, my new ride is your new hearse" :lol:  :lol:  :lol:
I swear I've gotta use that somehow, it's too funny to pass up.
