Defiance


(Guitar solo)
(NO DRUMS)

Starts off slow and gentle
It’s black and it’s fetish
You could hear it roaring by
You couldn’t see it coming by

And, you
Only believe in what you see

(Guitar and violin solo)

So, I wait for it to appear
Only to see it disappear
And I speculate how its
Effect has affected me

(BACKGROUND VOCALS)
Defected me

At a distance
Far beyond than I care
It’s small when I’m away
It grows with the distance

(Sitar and Violin solo + Drums begin)

This silence is defiance to this incoming violence (WHISPER)

(Instrumentals + SFX – 1 minute)

I shy away, I run away
As it reaches for me
It chases me endlessly
I’m terrified
By the movement beyond control

I’m losing my soul
Without you

(Drums stop)
(Guitar solo + SFX EXTRO)

This silence is defiance to this unforgiving violence (WHISPER)

Very impressive Ajey.

I like the symbolism in this one, open to many interpretations and shows the runaway of fear, the inner self and the unexpected.

Brosreview said...

Alexandra Garland said...

Hi Ajey,
Very powerful!! Enigmatic, but reaches deep into the core... Distance does not always make us feel safe... Silence may be the best defense against things beyond our control. Really good!!

This silence is defiance to this incoming violence (WHISPER)........ this is my favorite. i truly felt that someone is whispering this line to me.

Brosreview said...

@Preeetilata - Thank you!!!

Jenny Enochsson said...

Ajey,

Again, very dense and beautiful poetry. Poe and Blake... Yet, your style is very personal.

Your brilliant word play creates playfulness, which compliments the darker elements: "appear" and disappear", "affected" and "Defected".

Your texts are also very unpredictable and complex and that it great.

/Jenny

Brosreview said...

@Jenny - Thank you!!! I admire you noticing all these factors. They matter a lot whilst understanding this one. The toughest part was adding the instrumental sections.

Thanks again.

Make Me Disappear said...

Some things, out of control

Brosreview said...

I shy away, I run away
As it reaches for me
It chases me endlessly
I’m terrified
By the movement beyond control

You know I can hear this in my head. No really I do not joke AJ.

Brosreview said...

@inky - Thank you!!!

Brosreview said...

@Maverick - Thank you!!!

Brosreview said...

SarahA - Ah, that means a lot. Thank you!!!

J said...

Hmm, I distinctly remember this. You've made some radical changes to this one. I read this from its skeleton and so can identify its roots.

Splendid! Really, the musical elements are staggering!

You know what line remains my favourite. And, I am glad you did not change it. This one -

"I’m losing my soul
Without you"

This says it all. Or, I must put it this way. This surprises!!!

Great job Ajey. I have been noticing you're putting your old songs more than the new ones aka the 2009's. Any specific reasons?

Don't misunderstand. These are all fantastic. But, I have read them all and we have discussed about all these for hours. Why not share your new ones to your readers here?

Well, I have written enough. Keep your thoughts flowing.

Brosreview said...

@J - Thanks mate. You remembered? How could you not?

Yes, I made some changes as I spotted some more errors in it.

Yea, that line changes the whole path, I believe.

Yes, I shall be putting my new ones. No specific reasons behind releasing me old songs first.

It is really overwhelming to read a good or positive feedback from you. It means a lot to me. Thanks mate!!!

Woman in a Window said...

"You could hear it roaring by
You couldn’t see it coming by

And, you
Only believe in what you see"
My favorite thing you've written. I wish it were mine.

Brosreview said...

@Woman in a Window - Thanks!!!

riddhi said...

"So, I wait for it to appear
Only to see it disappear "
no words for these two.. spellbound

This silence is defiance to this incoming violence (WHISPER)

i like it so much... especially the whisper bit..

Brosreview said...

@riddhi - Thanks, I am glad you like it.

zorlone said...

Defiance? Could it be a forbidden love? Someone who fell for another, yet, their love cannot or was forced not to happen.

In the end of this song, I am seeing a man, running aimlessly in a dark background. As if searching for this forbidden love of his life, trying to defy all odds.

Walker said...

Sometimes you have to stop and let the darkness engulf you so you can smash out from within to regain your freedom into the light from the fear thats chasing you

Viji said...

Sounds like "war" to me - Defiance. Perfect.

The lines I loved:

"So, I wait for it to appear
Only to see it disappear
And I speculate how its
Effect has affected me"

"I shy away, I run away
As it reaches for me
It chases me endlessly
I’m terrified
By the movement beyond control"

Brosreview said...

@zorlone - I like your interpretation Z. Thank you!!!

Brosreview said...

@Walker - Nicely put. Thanks for reading.

Brosreview said...

@Viji - Nice take there. Thank you!!!

So, this is my debut at your blog..

A mysterious touch to it.. hauting to some extent..

"Silence is defiance to this unforgiving violence".. Phew!! Wonderfully penned...

droL said...

i love the tone and the flowing of words in this song. the dramatic approach to sending a message, complemented by the dark, mystical photograph opens up the minds of every reader.


PS: thanks so much for the prayers! i'm now feeling way better from the operation, and is back into writing again.

best regards!
