Demise


(Bass Solo)
(Piano)
(Guitar solo)

(RECITAL VOCALS)
Awake, Arise
Needs, Wants
Hate, Hurt
Demise, Despise

(SING)
No one to
Hear me
Nobody
Here to save me

Attracted
Distracted
Disgusted in moments gone

(Keyboard solo)

I know You’re watching
My devotion is fading
There! You stay watching
My life is mourning

(Guitar Bridge)

Venom gushing into my veins
Polluting my brain
Engulfing my innocent
Conscience

(Strings begin)

I begin loosing myself
I'm helplessly blinded by fear
Where do I look for myself?
I’m hopelessly blinded by fear

(Strings end)

Look at me now
You’re hurting me bad
I wanna look at you
Looking at me
Look at me now

You’ve faded me out
Away from my life
But, you still ask for more

You kiss my eyes
You kiss my face
But, you don’t see my sadness

(Strings begin)

I begin loosing myself
I’m helplessly blinded by fear
Where do I look for myself?
I’m hopelessly blinded by fear

(Strings end)

Awake, Arise
Arise, Needs
Needs, Wants
Wants, Hate
Hate, Hurt
Hurt, Demise
Demise, Despise
Despise...

(Instrumental break)

Demise (SPOKEN)

(Instruments begin)

Wash your regrets away
Leave your distrust away
Look at the sunray
And, start a new day

(LOW PITCH)
Do you regret what you’ve done to me?
Do you ever think of me?
How do you still look at your reflection?
Why does your heart have no affection?
You say that you’re sorry
But, your words don’t mean a thing

(HIGH PITCH)
Why don’t you look at me in the eye?
Why don’t you stop being a spy?
I have never understood your intentions
Neither have you

My life is disposed now
My soul is exposed now
I came here alone and I shall die alone

Awake, Arise
Arise, Needs
Needs, Wants
Wants, Hate
Hate, Hurt
Hurt, Demise
Demise, Despise

Wash your regrets away
Leave your distrust away
Look at the sunray
And, start a new day

(Guitar solo)
(Instrumentals – 1 minute)

Look at me
Hurt me bad
I wanna look at you
Looking at me
Look at me now

I know You’re watching
My devotion is fading
There! You stay watching
My life is grinning
At my own demise

AJ, you were digging deep back in '05. It was coming together well. "your own life grinning at your demise" is pretty dark. Wish I wasn't stuck with dial up so I could hear the music. does anyone in aus still have dial up? anyway-good writing, ~Rick

Ajey,
Ha, guess who finally made it. :P

Ok, I was really hooked onto it from the way you started. It's awesome how one can say so much by using just one word. However, (and I'm sure you expected me to say this) i didn't like the whole 'away, sunray' passage and the 'eye, spy' rhyming.

Ah well, is this for a band? I loved the overall theme and expression. Glad I made it here.

Brosreview said...

@Arjun - Ah, Arjun, my friend, you've made my day mate. Cheers!!!

My songs were waiting for your comments. Yea, I expected those lines in your comments. No, not for a band. This was way back in 2005.

Thank you!!!

Hey Ajey...

This is very very good.. I loved the way you broke the words, like awake, arise n all..The songs starts with something very easy (Sound) and suddenly builds up, and that too really well.. I love the way you describe the entire process..expression is your quality.. the photo art is quite apt and compliments the song on a whole..

I would like you to please go through my latest release (Cry behind a roar) and give your opinion on it.

-Rahul

You kiss my eyes
You kiss my face
But, you don’t see my sadness

Why don’t you look at me in the eye?
Why don’t you stop being a spy?

feeling bared for everyone to see.... it's raw cry from heart...
a rip roaring success i could see. you are sitting on a pot of gold..

Brosreview said...
