common Man

(No Drums)

Calm the swirling cycle
The endangering spectacle
Soothe the arrogance now
And, convince that it’s not your fight

(Strings + Guitar w/o drums)

I notice the gesture
And, I listen to the whisper
When you cry your lies
Up high into the skies

You’re a stranger

With a dagger
But, I bother
Again, as I witness
Your lies

Your allies

(Strings + Guitar with drum roll)
(Drums stop)

How should I react to what I observe?

(Guitar + Piano + SFX w/o drums)
(Strings + Guitar w/o drums)

Turn away, look away, you poor human
Run away, you common Man
Move away, from this existence
I’m sparing my will
As I walk away

Heartbreaking darling, that someone could continue to fight against such care and concern... the theme that you have laid down here reminds me so much of the struggle that each of us face at times when we come across unfaithful friends. Brilliantly outlined, and indeed heartwrenching!

I saw this as a higher power looking down upon his own creation, who has clearly forgotten that he was made by him and that he can see through the lies of a common man.

Also, I see a picture of people living a lie. They think they are living, but actually they are living for someone else, some other life, almost killing the soul within.

I see that the perspectives that this song opens are various. There are different layers to it, each one having a clear message. Awesome lines. :-)

I really like this piece and love the imagery. It does appear that there is a higher power looking down on the common man. Or perhaps it could be our conscience judging us. It's intriguing and full of layers. Nicely written.

hmmm...I will have to come back to this one. There is more here than meets the eye and I'm willing to bet that what looks obvious, isn't. Nicely done here!
