Unknown


(Piano and Guitar INTRO)
(Drums begin)
(Strings begin)
(Drums stop)
(Guitar Bridge)
(Drums begin)

Blurry faces
Never lie to me

Ghosts in the mirror
Make me shiver

A false memory
A broken melody
Denying destiny (x2)

(Instrumental Bridge)

Do we really want it?
Do we really need it?

(Strings solo)
(Strings + Flute duo)
(Instrumentals – 120 seconds)
(Drums Fill)

What would you do
If you saw flashes
In the sky
What could you do? (x2)

Every dream
That haunted
Is a wish
That’s wanted

(Drums stop)

Do we really want it?
Do we really need it?

(All instruments stop except Guitar)
(Guitar solo + Percussion)
(Bass Bridge)
(SFX – Unclear reception signals)

Unknown until known
Befriend the unknown

Hmmm... had to go through it a number of times before I got, I guess maybe just a blurred image...!!
Bygone beckons... isnt it Ajey? Superbly expressed, especially "Everything that haunts
Is a wish..."... that was wonderful. :) But again something mysterious was prevalent all throughout, Ghosts Ajey :P :)

Brosreview said...

@Diya - Thank you!!! I am glad you like this one. It is quite mysterious like most of my songs.

The Write Girl said...

I agree with Diya's sentiments of it being mysterious. I really like the last two lines and the photo sets the tone for this piece.

Brosreview said...

@The Write Girl - Thank you!!!

Rikkij said...

hmmm. makes the wants seem kinda crooked and untrustworthy and the currency required justified need. That kinda takes the fun otta it! but good writing, again!~rick

Brosreview said...

@Rikkij - Thanks!!!

Cynthia said...

Alexandra Garland said...

Brosreview said...

Brosreview said...

@Walker - I couldn't agree with you more. Thanks for reading.

Brosreview said...

@Alexandra Garland - Thank you!!!

Sayuri said...

Liked lyrics. I like these kinda mysterious things. It's like a puzzle, which could be interpreted according to the reader's choice. Is there any way to hear this. I'd love to with all those music score.

Brosreview said...

@Sayuri - Thank you!!! Umm, I do not play instruments very well. Thus, I do have any recordings. But, yes, I do imagine them.

Woman in a Window said...

Why is it that we're always fearing that which we don't know? There's plenty enough that we know about in the world to fear. Why don't we just save the rest and wait and see?

This one brings up some good questions, Brosreview.

Brosreview said...

@Woman in a Window - Thanks!!! It sure does raise a lot of questions.

riddhi said...

Do we really want it?
Do we really need it?
the two most difficult questions.. we seem to ask them almost at every halt.. I love this one.. It is not blurred. Pretty clearly expressed :)

Brosreview said...

riddhi - Thanks for reading!!!

SarahA said...

I am liking this Ajey. I like breaking each part up and reading such indvidually. The images that way are stronger to me.

'Every dream
That haunted
Is a wish
That’s wanted '

Very true, you.

Preetilata【ツ】 said...

Every dream
That haunted
Is a wish
That’s wanted ....... superb !!!

i loved the feel of it when all instruments stop except guitar. :)

Brosreview said...

@SarahA - Thank you!!!

Brosreview said...

@Preetilata - Thank you!!!

zorlone said...

Flashes in the sky.. clever mate! This song is right up my alley.

A combination of piano, guitar and drums. I wonder if the song in my head would sound like how you'd make this one.

Maybe a bit like enya or evanescence? Okay, I'm guessing.

When will your record come out man?

Brosreview said...

@zorlone - Soon mate!!! Very soon!!! At least that is what I tell to myself. Thanks for appreciating!!!

J said...

I have always been fascinated by this subject Ajey. A fantastic take. Well, I could also call it a unique take as there is no band who has expressed the thought like this. You know, I have always and will continue to be a fan of your enigmatic style of writing.

Sometimes we get frustrated to learn about the unknown. And, sometimes we regret that we shouldn't have bothered to learn about it. The more we know, the more we fear. Some things are better left alone or untouched.

A brilliant take. I'm proud of you.

Brosreview said...

@J - Thanks a lot!!! I appreciate it.

The Pink Orchid said...

Hey Ajey,

you have been awarded at my blog. http://lifeofthepinkorchid.blogspot.com

please visit and accept the award :)

Brosreview said...

@The Pink Orchid - Thank you!!!

Make Me Disappear said...

Very nicely done Ajey..!!

Like the theme, liked the overall concept...


Wish we had the answer

I doubt if we really want it..!!

Brosreview said...

@Make Me Disappear - Thank you!!!

judith ellis said...

Wonderful, Ajey! Existentially, the unknown is known though deeply rooted within. The wanting, the needing seems like a desirous discovery. We are forever looking for reflections of ourselves in various images. Sometimes we don't like what we see; if we embrace it then acceptance can be. The unknown then becomes the known, a familiar friend. We generally accept familiarity and reject hostility. The beauty to me here is the honesty needed to love that unfamiliar often seemingly instrusive fragmented identity into acceptance, into becoming a friend. I love the ending.

Brosreview said...

@Judith - Ah!!! Thanks Judith!!! It is so good to read your comment. It has been a while. I've missed them. You understand the point quite well.

**Unknown until known

- Reminds me of the quintessential Frostian lines, "I took the one less travelled by, and that has made all the difference."

It is wonderful to see such creativity being put to tune. Would love to hear them some day.

Peace.

Interesting blog.

Powerful text! I really like the concise form; it is effective.

Brosreview said...

@Jenny - Thank you!!!

SandyCarlson said...

This is so very true:

Every dream
That haunted
Is a wish
That’s wanted

And haunts me.

Brosreview said...

@Sandy - Thank you!!!

dreamer said...

Your post as usual are mysterious and a full play of images...fragments or flashes well coalesced into a meaningful whole....

The last lines are the esse4nce of the piece and I love them the most...
"Unknown until known
Befriend the unknown"
Waiting for your next post...keep writing!!

Brosreview said...

@dreamer - Thank you!!! I hardly see you on-line these days.

Pretty Me!! said...

Every dream

Is a wish

touching !! n the pic really was apt for the words :)

Brosreview said...

@Pretty Me - Thanks, you.

Zendagi Migzara said...

You have a very what do I say "different" way of writing.. again like I said before.. Mysterious... Your thoughts (posts) are not simple as they appear.. something very deep flowing through them..

Makes the reader wonder....

Brosreview said...

@Zendagi - Well, that is the intention. Thanks for reading.

thepoetryman said...

Love the pics you use to accentuate your songs. Nice.

By the way... I recommend movies that, in my opinion, come nearer consideration of "film"... In fact, here's one for you- Powder Blue. Poignant, well acted and directed.


Peace.

Brosreview said...

@thepoetryman - Thanks mate! Yea, sure, I'll try to get a hold of that movie.

zorlone said...

AJ,

I hope it's sooner. hehehe.

All the best!

Z

Brosreview said...

@zorlone - Thanks mate!!!

Strawberry Girl said...

I like your line about dreams being wishes. Yes that fits quite a bit. Dreams can be frustrating, confusing, enlightening as well.

Your right that this fits my poem, "Ring around the moon."

Very perceptive of you to notice the similarities. Its interesting to read this, trying to see your intent on writing it, and comparing it with my intent on writing my piece. Actually I think the intents are very similar... hmmm. interesting.

Brosreview said...

@Strawberry Girl - Glad to read that you felt this interesting! Thank you!!!

Saadi said...

False Memory?! Broken Melody?!

Man, you do have a way of evoking spine-chilling thought more than any Friday the 13th Movie known to mankind....or at least me!

Good job!

Brosreview said...

@Saadi - Haha, thanks Saadi!

island of peace said...

very powerful.

Brosreview said...

@island of peace - Thanks!
