So hard for me to get the right interpretation in my head. so much noise in my head right now I can't sort out the sound. But I'm thinking power in less. I'll have to revisit it. ~Rick

Brosreview said...

@Rikkij - Oh yea, this is intentionally noisy. Hey, but you are right with the "power in less" analogy. When you revisit, pay more attention to the number, perhaps.

Food, Health, Knowledge,Happiness,Resources, Calm seasons, Success

(The powerful seven perhaps yours will be powerful against the seven sins!!)

Simple, focused and very effective Ajey.

@Khaled KEM: Thank you!!!

A'Jay said...

Awe gees Bros, Im just no good at this music bizo...I need to hear things..lol but love the pic you put with it...x

Brosreview said...

@A'Jay - Thank you!!! And, yeah, the musical elements are merely my imagination. I am just preparing a log book so that when I approach a band or vice versa I can contribute in the music making process as well.

The picture, the way I have written the title, the number involved and the words are all interconnected and carry a deep meaning.

PS: Some of the elements behind the meaning are spotted by Rikkij and Khaled KEM already. So, that should help you understand. But, remember there is more.

Ajey - This one does not do much for me. But I do wonder about your comment:

"When you revisit, pay more attention to the number, perhaps."

Had you not said this, the response that followed regarding the number seven may not have been, even with the title.

Again, somehow I feel like you wish for the reader to guess what you mean in your writing without much of a connecting thread.

I suppose that many writers hope that others will see what they see. But writing lyrics or songs is all about the hearer and reader, not necessarily the writer. It feels like a game.

By your desire for us to connect the dots, sometimes I get the impression that your search of meaning either evades or intrigues even you.

Does this make sense?

By the way, the image is quite interesting indeed, although I do not relate it to the words or the theme therein.

@•bLue-eyed sOuL• - Thank you!!!

Brosreview said...

@SarahA - Thank you!!!

Brosreview said...

@Judith - Umm, well, yea, I always want my readers/listeners to connect the dots to understand my work.

As in, I hate it when people always credit the music over lyrics. So, I challenge them or probably attract them to understanding the song and then tipping them that reading the other song shall help them understand this one better.

But, make no mistake; I have already connected the dots cause I have designed their layout. I am just wishing people could connect to them via thinking hard.

Quite a few people e-mail me and say that it feels like I am giving them an algorithmic problem to solve. Well, so be it. I have written easy listening stuff filled with emotions. These songs are way different from them. If you focus and think hard to understand you will find the same (or even more) emotion here too.

Any ways, thanks for reading!!!

Shadow said...

you speak volumes with your lack of words. strong. yet moving. lovely

Brosreview said...

@Shadow - Thank you!!!

Make Me Disappear said...

Firstly, the title reminds me of a band 2Tm2,3..Weird name.

About the song, It's perfect, easy, simple and hitting. You have said so much with such few words. I am amazed man!

P.s Could you please tell me what the title says? As far as, I could relate was the seven things you talked about.

Brosreview said...

@Make Me Disappear - Thanks a lot!!!

Meena said...

Oh, I like this - totally reminded me of Faith (I know, again), but those are all the things God does and those are the things we tend to appreciate - all those tangible things. However, we fail to remember the most important thing that is given and that is "forgiveness" and hence it's whispered.

Now I will proceed to read other's comments :-)

Brosreview said...

@Meena - Thank you!!!

Strawberry Girl said...

That picture is amazing, the first head hit me right in the face, then I noticed the two skulls on the side of the first, then two opposing faces and lastly the two baby figures. SO COOl

Then the song fits the picture well, 7 things... and it's noisy like the picture.

Plus the middle figure reminds me of an ancient god of some sort...

Brosreview said...

@Strawberry Girl - Thanks! Yes, they are both interlinked and so is the number.

Remember, this is a concept album.
